Loft Nursery: Pretty But Unsafe. DUH.

It really is funny when the baby design/decor blog Ohdeedoh by Apartment Therapy features TOTALLY UNSAFE NURSERIES. Previously I posted about a nursery with a step ladder up to a window and too widely-spaced crib bars. Today Ohdeedoh has a nursery in a LOFT... with OPEN railings.

And the crib and changing table are right against the railings! Reader comments are appropriately along the lines of, "Are you FREAKING SERIOUS?"

See the whole post to view reader comments and see the "before" photo of the loft when it was an office.

Note: Comments have since been disabled on the site, and while I wish it was because Ohdeedoh was embarrassed by the criticism, I think it was because Apartment Therapy renamed the site "Apartment Therapy- Family."

Wow. I realize that parents of newborns aren't necessarily thinking to the toddler years, but . . . wow!

Love your blog. Can't wait to hear what your new name will be.
You are so right. This space is going to be a toddler nightmare. My DD would have been right up and over that railing.
I would never encourage a client to use a space like this for a baby - just too dangerous. And it doesn't make sense to then have to move the child a year later, unless they are planning on moving to the 'burbs.
