Celine Dion, Matt Damon, Neil Patrick Harris, Alicia Keyes, the list of stars who have given birth this month is wonderfully long! We are anxiously awaiting some first shots of these celebrity babies’ nurseries! But, until the glossy photos come out, we decided to scour the net to find out what nursery designers to the stars have been doing to ready the nurseries of Hollywood’s newest additions.
According to Shalena Smith, who worked with celebrity Dads like Sean “Diddy” Combs, Wayne Brady, and Sean Patrick Thomas, “a comfortable chair for breast-feeding, story-reading, and bonding is really important”. Just think about all the hours you will spend rocking and feeding your newborns, and then make sure to pick up the most comfortable chair for you!
Smith also thinks that the ceiling is often overlooked when designing and decorating a nursery. “Babies spend a lot of time looking at the ceiling, which makes it the perfect place to hang a beautiful chandelier or paint a sky mural.” At the very least, a colorful mobile that works with the design of the bedroom would make an excellent addition to your baby’s nursery!
Finally, Shalena Smith advises parents to invest in furniture that will grow with your child. “If you’re going to splurge on something, an armoire, a bureau, or a dresser will have life beyond the nursery.” As you know, Bonavita’s Lifestyle Convertible Cribs® take your newborn through adulthood, converting from a crib to a toddler bed and eventually into a beautifully crafted, comfortable full sized bed.
Do you look towards celebrity nurseries for inspiration? Would you consider painting a mural on the ceiling in the babies room? If so, what would the mural look like? Share in the comment section below!
