Nursery Decor 101: Want, Need, Love!

1. Best bassinet – We love the Ninna Nanna and Rockwell bassinets by Monte for their modern look & high functionality.

2. Convertible Crib – We’re crazy about Oeuf’s new colors for the ever-popular Sparrow Crib, now in Petal Pink & Charcoal Grey. Or if you’re really wanting a pop of color, check out the newest Alto Crib by Spot on Square with bright acrylic panels.

3. Organic Mattress- Whether it’s a traditional spring mattress or one made of coconut fiber, wool and latex, we think having a great quality mattress (with a waterproof crib topper) is essential for a good night’s sleep for both parent & child.

4. Great Glider- We think Monte makes some of the best out there. They’re perfectly sized for a New York apartment and elegant enough to live in the living room. Check out the Como, Joya, Luca, Grano and more!

And if you’re in a New York state of mind, try the Aden+Anais for Babesta exclusive city prints for crib sheet, dream blanket, swaddles, sleepsack and more.

6. Awesome Art- No need to put “kid art” in the nursery. Find a local artist that you love and give the room some pizzazz. We love the custom work by Gregoire Ganter and the whimsical art by Instagram star Rebeca Raney for instance. Modern and bold yet playful prints by Noodoll are also a lot of fun.

7. Smart Storage- Dressers, changers, and shelving by Oeuf and Spot on Square are great companions to your chosen crib. For books & toy, Oeuf’s just launching a tall & narrow option of their always popular Mini Library.


8. Rockin’ Rug- We love the rugs by Lorena Canals, because they are both cute and machine washable. The new Spot on Square round and modern rugs also make our top list for cool bedroom accessories.

Nothing humdrum in these Babesta inspired bedrooms. Boost your toddlers comfort and cool quotient with sleep solutions from beloved Oeuf and yummy newbie pick Sack Me.

Oeuf River twin_CMYK

Latest from Brooklyn-based design company, Oeuf,  is the River twin bed. Pulling double duty, the space saving gem is built for a city lifestyle, with all the features an urbanite would need. The end of the bed is designed with a shelf, functioning as storage for books or stuffed animals. Option #2: Use it as seating while putting on shoes and socks in the morning. The trundle allows for easy sleepovers, and if not being used as an extra bed, the pull out drawer can earn its keep as storage for clothing or bedding.

Lofty Digs Highlighted Throughout TriBeCa

Friends of Duane Park in conjunction with Friends of Bogardus Garden hosted their annual Inside TriBeCa Loft Tour featuring deluxe residential spaces and for the first time a commercial loft joined the bunch. Being a first-timer I was not quite sure what to expect but the tour provided as much insight into prime real estate as it did a tour of the TriBeCa ‘hood. Being a self-guided tour participants could view the 8 units at their leisure and linger for as long as they wanted between 1-5pm on a gorgeous albeit chilly Sunday afternoon. Deciding to hit the tour in the planned route, we explored north to south from Laight Street to West Broadway at Chambers street.

Laight Street: Was a beaut and definitely set the tone for the lavishness to come throughout the day. Bringing new meaning to the word spacious in New York city the multi-floor penthouse featured views of St. John’s Park and One World Trade, a huge JR painting in the dinning room, 3 Banksy pieces and a two-story wine cellar.

Hudson Street: This wild card was the only commercial space chosen to be included in the tour. Washington Market Pediatrics is the friendliest doctor’s office around. Filled with engaging examine rooms each exquisitely designed to bring a smile to young patient’s faces  hides the feeling of being at a doctors office. Instead kids are transformed to the ocean, safari or even among dinos. The piece de resistance was the entire story of “The Little Engine That Could” sprawled out on the waiting room(playroom) accent wall. The entire office, the vision of interior designer Diana Mui and Dr. Tiffany Otto Knipe, garnered exclamations of “beautiful,” “awesome” and “I wish I was a kid!”

Franklin Street: This welcoming, open and bright space left no corner undone; featuring fabulous details at every turn. You could not miss the spiral staircase in the center but the light fixture over the kitchen island and Polaroid picture display in the powder room were equally not to be missed touches of design inspiration.

loft tour!

Leonard Street: Only walk-up off the bunch, this loft felt the most traditional of the bunch. With a narrow staircase that lead to a picturesque loft bedroom the artist has more room in the painting studio half of the apartment, keeping the Bohemian lifestyle alive and well.

 West Broadway: Showcasing the keen design of Brad Ford, the final apartment we saw on the tour was a prime example of how to create a soothing home amid the hustle and bustle of NYC. We were wowed by the solid granite soaking bathtub that accentuated the overall calmness yet livableness of this loft. Plus we couldn’t help but notice of the Staple street Skybridge family portrait or Oeuf and Spot on Square furniture and Yummy World Plush accents in the children’ rooms (Babesta faves)!


Inside TriBeCa Loft Tour spotlighted some of the biggest, boldest and brightest Tribeca has to offer. Friends of Duane Park scored over $22K for charity and made for an exciting day for interior design and architecture buffs and novices alike, generating real estate envy in all. Opportunely made for a parents only afternoon, TriBeca Loft Tour, featured true stunners with infinity pools, dine-in-kitchens to die for, to the coolest lofts retaining their original artist edge.

Vida’s style extends to bedroom decor too. We loved watching Vida’s nursery unfold on Instagram. “I thought it (a revamped bookshelf) would look nice against a black chalkboard wall, says Natalie, I then picked up some colorful tape and free-styled a geometric wall…It’s cheerful and fun, just like him!”
