Inside Job

sally steponkus interiors!

To care for that growing bundle inside, you’re a vitamin-popping, yoga-posing fiend. Come 40 weeks, you hope the outside world delivers.

Push for a nurturing environment with Sally Steponkus Interiors, the local design firm that conjures glamorous, kid-friendly spaces. Spot-on advice from its pros includes wallpapering the nursery ceiling (great view from the crib), laminating kitchen-chair fabric (spill away, little monsters), and building a changing table in the closet (crouching toddler, hidden diapers).

In short, it balances your desire for a cool place with the needs of your baby.

So everyone has womb to grow.
