Interior designer and photographer Gunnar Larson has been a long-time member of the Refinery29 extended family, but recently, he and his wife, Sara Larson, have decided to do a little family makin' of their own. When the couple found out they were pregnant, they faced the challenge of fitting in another life into their micro East Village apartment. Clocking in around 400 square feet, it was a space challenge of a lifetime.
Of course, if anyone could find out creative solutions, it's Gunnar and Sara. We interviewed the expectant couple to get some tips and tricks, and just in the nick of time, too! They welcomed baby Ilhen into their brood this past April. Congrats Gunnar and Sara! Now, tell us about that treehouse bassinet...
