This week I have seen some of the cutest babies and stylish pregnant ladies in town. When you are not expecting it always seems as if the rest of the world is. My 3 babies are growing up fast with the oldest starting kindergarten, middle almost 4, and the baby turned 1 in June.
I have lovingly planned each of their rooms with eager anticipation of their arrival. Each room is very different, capable of carrying them into the next stage of their lives and seemingly fits their personalities. Although with my oldest, a girl we are now on her 3rd room, 3rd paint color! In her new room she participated in the decorating process even helping me paint the antique tole chandelier hanging over her bed which is one of my favorite touches.
This adorable nursery belongs to Charlottean Laura Vinroot Poole's daughter Fifi as featured in Domino magazine. It is a vintage meets contemporary nursery featuring a metal bamboo chandelier, Dick and Jane posters combined with a Jonathan Adler table and modern crib.
Here is Fifi's room a few years later shown in Charlotte Magazine's Home and Garden with a big girl bed and a few feminine touches added. Fifi is so stylish she has a beautiful Mexican Otomi on her bed too!
House of Turquoise featured this chic nursery by Lucas Studios for the Stately Homes by the Sea show house in New Jersey. I just can't get enough of these images, very sophisticated yet peaceful and serene for baby.

One of my favorite vendors for whimsical accessories is New York artist Tamar Mogendorff. She just posted that she is working on the "Unideer" which is extremely exciting! I can't decide if I would like one for myself or my daughter, doesn't every gal love a unicorn at some point in their life? All of her lovelies are hand stitched from linen, mohair wool, vintage fabrics, pashminas and incorporate vintage buttons, beads, threads and ribbons.
I have a client who has Tamar Mogendorff's white swan in her nursery and it adds a unique, fantastical touch.
In my son's room I incorporated the deer and it sweetly looks over him.
There are wonderful fish and bird cages that would dazzle any baby or child.
