Jul16 Lonny Magazine: Anatomy of a Room 2014
Lonny Magazine (whose pinterest you should follow for great design inspiration) just did a feature on the anatomy of a sophisticated and playful room. The room was originally created by DISC Interiors for last year’s Dwell on Design event. So here’s some how-to’s for a sublime nursery such as this one.
To get this look: “There’s something whimsical about the brass tripod stand—proving you don’t have to be cutesy-cutesy to be mini-person-appropriate. Black-and-white wallpaper is an emphatic “do” for modern-feeling kids’ rooms—the palette offers contrast and versatility, and also ages well. When it comes to cribs, less is definitely more; we love the streamlined silhouette and blonde wood finish of this piece—add a throw with handmade detailing to create interest. A figurative work with a strong sense of character is an easy way to add instant personality and history to a room. The linen ottoman is a straight-up MVP for its all-purpose functionality—use it to put your feet up, for seating, or as a surface for books.”

One of our collective members and fave photographers Kati Mallory sent us these nursery and newborn photos that we are obsessed with. With a graphic design mother, baby Trent was bound to have a spectacular nursery, and sure enough it’s beyond! I adore the Navy chair with the patterned pillow and absolutely spectacular handmade-stitched leather pouf.
Thanks Kati, you’re a star!

Jun03 Nest Designs 2014
One of our shop owners is a new obsession of mine! Nest Designs makes the most gorgeous blankets and bibs with fantastic fabrics and the loveliest designs. These beauties are made of a quality bamboo blended material which is super soft, durable, a very breathable material and of course looks great! Blankies can be used as swaddles, covers, or just plain old cuddling. Their bibs are new, and I love the style and neutral fabrics so they’ll fit with any tiny outfit you might choose. The magic blend of function and fashion even for our little ones.
May29 Chicago Nursery 2014
One of our fave photographers Alyssa Rosenheck sent us a nursery and family session of the Chicago Fire’s midfielder Logan Pause and his absolutely beautiful family. They live in a gorgeous walk-up in the city with exposed brick walls and Vaneesha did such a lovely job decorating it.
