Holiday Gift Guide: For the Nursery
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Perhaps the most fun I ever had in designing a room was when I styled my children's nurseries. It was a time before plastic princesses and action figures began to muddy the waters, when I could indulge in my own sense of playfulness and whimsy. Back then, I didn't have nearly the variety of rare and international goods as are available today. If I had it all to do over again, here is what I would choose. Above: Available with two or three gulls, this graceful Seagull Mobile is hand stitched by Masami Akatsuka of Cocon; €84 and €122.
