We just love it when celebrity designers call upon us to help them with their design projects. Especially when celebrity designer, Sherri Blum of Jack and Jill Interiors adds our fancy silk crown pendant and a coordinating lamp to her latest Hollywood nursery deals. It's just so exciting when we received news that the stars of the Cake Boss asked Sherri to help them design a gender neutral nursery for their fourth baby.
We had just a couple of weeks to put all these designs in place as Sherri asked us to design a cream silk crown pendant with clear beads and Sherri selected an ivory rug for the nursery. Also featured in the nursery were the Venetian Crib, Chelsea Armoire and Chelsea Dresser and Changing table by Bratt Decor, crib bedding and window treatments by Olena Boyko, custom glider by Angel Song, and light by Charn & Company. Our royal crown princess pendant lights up this amazing designer nursery with Marie Ricci's gorgrous ceiling medallion. matching green table lamp with silk shade and bead trimming.
The crown pendant turned out amazing and was the centerpiece of the room. What nursery wouldn't love to have a lit up royal crown as their main light source. The elegant cream silk fabric, surrounded by clear beads gave the crown pendant a sweet reflection. Thanks you Sherri for your talented insight into making yet another successful celebrity nursery design to share. Everything was hush hush until the big reveal. Sherri was featured on the Baby Special episode by TLC as she completed the nursery.Read what Sherri Blum has to say about this exciting celebrity nursery room
One of my favorite celebrity baby nurseries to date! Lisa and Buddy Valastro, stars of The Cake Boss on TLC, and owners of Carlo’s Bakery, contacted me to help them design a nursery for their fourth baby due in February. They did not want to know the gender of their baby prior to birth, and therefore desired a gender-neutral baby nursery. The problem was, Lisa wanted a traditional elegant nursery, while Buddy wanted a whimsical Jungle Safari theme nursery. My job was to find a compromise! Of course the consultations were scheduled and due to Buddy’s busy schedule at Carlo’s Bakery, the initial meetings were with Lisa. We selected elegant traditional nursery furniture in a beautiful antique silver finish which included a stunning iron crib. Silk dupioni was used in the custom crib bedding and window treatments and other elegant custom fixtures such as the pendant nursery light and nursery glider were selected as well. I was a bit concerned about Buddy ending up dissatisfied with the nursery’s lack of jungle and safari elements, therefore I convinced Lisa to allow us to paint a stylized tree in the nursery’s corner to give Buddy a bit of jungle atmosphere. I also shared with her my own Giraffe Family wall hanging and promised her that if we put this in the nursery, along with the rocking giraffe and other stuffed animals, that it would appease Buddy’s desire to have animals in the nursery.
The nursery mural was completed by Juan and Ralph, talented artists from Carlo’s Bakery. It was quite entertaining to work with this team, to say the least. When all was said and done, Buddy and Lisa loved their baby’s nursery. The looks on their faces when they saw it all come together…priceless! The icing on the cake…Lisa loved her nursery so much, that Buddy surprised her with a replica of the entire nursery made out of cake for her baby shower! Who else can say their nursery design was “immortalized in cake” by The Cake Boss, himself?! I do love my job.
