Baby Shower Gift Guide: Day 4, Nursery

Well, we paused the Baby Shower Gift Guide to celebrate the arrival of a certain beauiful boy. Introducing Day 4: All Things Nursery!

Day 5 will be up on Monday morning. All deadlines for entry will still be on Friday, December 16th.


Maclaren: David Netto Nursery Designed Crib Bedding

Once I find a brand that I love and trust, I will follow them to the ends of their creative expertise by trying everything they have to offer. Maclaren has continued to impress me in terms of safety, design and quality.

This year, Maclaren launched their NettoCollection Linen Line full of beautiful lines and gorgeous hues. (I interviewed David about the collection HERE).

Once I tried them out in my own home and washed them a couple of times, I can honestly say that the quality is just as divine as the style. I love the way it looks sweet with a modern edge and maintains it’s form even after a few wash and wears.


Coral Jade Crib Set

The Bedding fits all Maclaren Nursery cribs as well as other cribs that use industry standard size mattresses

Each Set Contains

2 Fitted Crib Sheets
1 Reversible Bumper
1 Crib Skirt:
1 Reusable Duffle Bag

Special bonus: The design isn’t baby-ish at all, and will grow with the child into toddlerhood. I plan on using this set until our youngest graduates to a Twin size bed.

We bought our first SwaddleDesigns blanket for Jack in 2007 after struggling with a gazillion other blankets that were either too soft, too small, too rectangle or too stretchy. Our sleep was spotty at best during those first few months, and we were getting to the point of hiring a sleep coach for our new baby. Once we found and tried the SwaddleDesigns blanket, all of that changed. Of course things weren’t TOTALLY perfect, but Jack was so much more content being securely wrapped up. We bought one for Zoe as well, and have one waiting for our newest addition. Both Jack and Zoe still sleep with their blankets, long after either of them have been swaddled. THey are such soft and cozy blankets, I almost need one for my OWN self.


SwaddleDesigns Ultimate Receiving Blanket is large, square, lightweight and breathable (42 x 42 inches). It is made from super soft, premium, preshrunk cotton flannel.

Sam Simon

I’m not a design guru. I really don’t have what it takes to put together a room nicely and the way that I envision it. Throw me into a closet full of clothes and I’ll come out with something fantastic, but interior design is not my forte.

I do know what I like when I see it though, and Sam Simon‘s paintings are sweet perfection. They are gorgeous in both modern and more classically designed rooms, and each one of them looks and feels original and special.




Sam Simon is a NYC artist and designer. He creates beautiful murals and paintings on canvas for homes and businesses. Sam’s work is known for the tiny details. Each piece is carefully hand painted on top of an archival print on canvas. Individually signed and numbered by Sam Simon – each one is unique. They arrive ready to hang, canvas stretched over pine bars. Made in the USA with love and style and detailed with swarovski crystals.
