American Baby Nesting: Congratz to the Novogratz

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Back in May we had the pleasure of working with Robert and Cortney Novogratz as guest editors on American Baby’s nursery-design page. Their key piece was a fantastic wool rug that spells out “Family.” This fall that rug has been the star of a Novogratz collection for CB2, so congratulations, guys! If you haven’t heard of them, the couple star in Home by Novogratz on HGTV and 9 By Design on Bravo. They’ve got seven kids, ages 3 to 15, so it was easy to trust their opinions when it came to nursery design.

We also like that their aesthetic is very modern and urban, but they have a house in the country and the influence of that sneaks in as well. We went around and around on a headline that might pin down their style, and settled on Urban Boho. I’m still not sure that really captures their spirit. They’re the kind of designers you can’t describe in just a few words. 

If there’s a nursery theme or inspiration that you’re thinking of, let us know. Right now we’re getting carried away with a Parisian theme for a future issue. And daydreaming that maybe we can fly to Paris for inspiration. Since that’s not actually going to happen, we’re instead looking at these cool Novogratz chairs. They’re kind of Parisian, no? Don’t you think I need to make a quick trip to the City of Light to make sure?!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win $10,000 for Baby’s room from PoshTots.com!

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Talk about Baby Booty! Our most amazing sweepstakes of the year actually ends this Friday. PoshTots.com reached out to us to offer one incredibly lucky person a $10,000 giftcard to their site. The winner will also get a one-hour phone consultation with one of the PoshTots designers, so you can hash out, say, the merits of a safari theme over a nautical theme, or whether you want an heirloom-style iron crib or a more modern, sustainable-wood version. (That’s one of their pretty iron cribs on the right, it starred in our June issue!)

Wouldn’t you love to go all crazy and make your kid’s room incredible? Enter right here. The official rules are here. It’s a pleasure to give someone such a grand prize; whoever wins, I hope they share with us what they do with their loot! I’m not allowed to enter, of course, but since I can dream away, I have to say I would take out the IKEA loft bed I bought my daughter (great bed, but a mistake for her tiny room) and get her a daybed instead. And then we’d still have thousands more to spend! What would you spend your $10,000 on at PoshTots.com? Leave a comment, but don’t forget to enter the contest!!! Goody luck!
