Not only can you feel great about a new, totally customized piece of furniture, you can also pat yourself on the back for being eco-friendly!
When Giuliana and Bill Rancic welcomed baby Duke to their family this August, there was no doubt that the stylish duo would give their little one a room to be proud of. To create a one-of-a-kind nursery that complemented Giuliana and Bill's sophisticated, glam style, they called in designer Lonni Paul, who cofounded PetitNest, a modern collection of baby and kids' room furnishings with Tiffani Thiessen. We were lucky enough to get the inside scoop about baby Rancic's nursery from Lonni herself. Click through to see the room in its entirety, and hear the backstory from the very talented designer on how it came to be.
Once upon a time, a nursery was either pink or blue, and the extent of the decor was a pile of stuffed animals and a slew of baby gear. But over the past few years, style-savvy moms have smartened up. There's no reason that a baby's space can't reflect his mama's sophisticated taste. This past year, we saw some amazing nurseries, and narrowing it down to the 10 best was no easy task! Whether you're a seasoned parent or a mom-to-be, you're sure to be inspired by our very favorite nurseries of the year.
Whether you have a Winter baby on the way or are looking to revamp your little one's current space, we love the cozy, comfortable vibe of a log-cabin-inspired nursery. When shopping for the theme, be on the lookout for rustic, woodsy pieces, plaids, tartans, and fair isle prints. Woodland animals like owls, deer, and moose are super popular in kids' decor right now, so accent the room with some furry friends!
If you live in an apartment or a house with limited square footage, shopping for a nursery can feel like cruel and unusual punishment. There's so much furniture to consider . . . not to mention the inevitable additions of baby gear and toys. While it may take a little extra research and effort, there's no need to scrimp on your new addition's digs just because of space constraints. Check out these nine ways to fit it all (including the baby!) in.
Play to your heart's content! A play space can inspire and help establish children's sense of independence as they learn to play on their own. Whether it is a basement, a former home office, or just a corner of a common room, lil ones love having their own space to play. We've rounded up six of the most inspiring playrooms to provide mamas with inspiration as they create their own lil sanctuaries for their tots.
