Tottini, one of our favorite local retailers for small ones, to design and give away a fantastic and virtually complete nursery....all it needs is a little one to call it (cry it?) home.
Tottini provided the gorgeous (and solidly built, I might add, after sliding them around the store) crib and changing table from swoon-inducing interior designer David Netto's Netto Collection. We provided the concept and decorative accessories, including some fantastic pieces from a new line we're carrying, Stray Dog Designs.
Most of their pieces are crafted from some combination of tole and papier-mache, and all are finished with low-VOC paint in shades from Benjamin Moore. They're an interesting company that lives by their values, and it doesn't hurt that their items are, as we say in the South, cute as all get out.
Here's a peek at our inspiration board for the design:
Dash & Albert for their high-style, low-cost cotton rug; Mod Green Pod for accent fabric used on the wall art (we envisioned this pattern in wallpaper in the "real" nursery), and Thomas Paul for a quirky linen throw pillow.
And, of course, no nursery worth its salt would be caught without an alabaster stag head gracing its wall.
And if you don't win, we'd love for you to drop us a line if your nursery could use a style infusion; we can help!
After all, shouldn't the first room a child sees be a good one?
