In celebration of my Jack and Jill Interiors website being back up, I wanted to take a moment to recap some of our most popular nurseries of the past. My website crashed and was irretrievably broken about six months ago. It was a very painful episode and caused us to have to rebuild and create a brand new site.
Thankfully I found Tom Ford of Marketing Modo. Can I just tell you…this man is genius! I’ve worked with several website designers in the past, but this company blows my mind with their creativity, ability to understand my vision, and their attention to detail.
Tom and his team build me a brand new Jack and Jill Interiors website to showcase my designer nurseries and kids’ rooms of the past two decades. We also have our nursery wall art and children’s decor for sale in my online baby boutique. Be sure to check it out!
So here it is…my recap of our top three most popular baby rooms and celebrity nurseries of the past decade.
Royal Prince Nursery
This royal prince theme nursery was one of our trademarked Gender Surprise Nurseries and was one of our most memorable designs to date. The client was having her second baby and didn’t want to know the baby’s gender, yet wanted to have an over-the-top, elegant royal nursery completed to her liking before she had the baby.
Therefore, we designed two complete nurseries down to every detail…a prince nursery for a boy and a princes nursery for a girl. Then when the mom-to-be went for her ultrasound, the doctor sealed up a picture in an envelope and mailed it to our studio. I couldn’t wait for the secret to be revealed and was so tickled to be the only person to know the gender of the baby! I opened the envelop and saw an obvious BOY in the image! We got right to work ordering up all of the appropriate boy nursery furniture, bedding, wall art, lighting and decor.
We had to stage most of the nursery’s decor here in our studio while waiting for furniture delivery. When the furniture was scheduled for delivery, I drove to New Jersey to receive the goods. The family left the house, and we kicked into gear receiving the furniture and installing the room. We installed the crib bedding, wall art, rug, and accessories down to the tiniest little detail. I completed the decorative mural around the room and when finished, locked the door behind us! We even taped paper over the windows and taped around the outside of the door so no “glow” might show through the door crack at night! The nursery would sit and wait for Mommy and baby to arrive home from the hospital.
This was such a fun project and so full of excitement and anticipation. When Mom and baby Luke arrived home from the hospital and she saw her nursery for the first time, she contacted me and said “the nursery is breath taking and made me cry!” I love a happy ending…don’t you?
Gender Neutral Celebrity Nursery
Jack and Jill Interiors completed this gender neutral nursery for the Valastro family of TLC’s The Cake Boss.
I designed this gender neutral nursery for the celebrity baby of Lisa and Buddy Valastro, stars of TLC’s The Cake Boss. I had the honor of being featured on the Cake Boss Baby Special episode as I completed the installation. Due with their fourth child, Lisa and Buddy didn’t want to know the baby’s gender prior to birth. The parents had very different ideas about how they wanted the nursery decorated, as well. Lisa wanted an elegant, traditional nursery, and Buddy wanted and over the top Jungle Safari nursery theme. My job was to help them find a compromise.
