When mother-to-be Mariah Carey was on the Ellen Degeneres Show this week, about two things she made certain: first, she did not want to know the sex of her baby or have anyone guess what they think it is, and secondly, that her baby’s nursery would be gender neutral in color. That got us to thinking…how would Baby Lifestyles decorate Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s baby nursery?
Well of course, there would be butterflies. Mimi’s signature fluttering insect would be flying around in baby’s nursery in many different ways, but beyond that, we have to dream big for pop music’s reigning #1 hit maker. The answer came with the incredibly beautiful Notte Fatata collection by designer Savio Firmino.
The newest line from Firmino was inspired by the birth of his grandchild, complete with nurseries that seamlessly transition into boy and girl’s rooms. A line made up of everything divine, from wardrobes to small beds, from bedside tables to changing tables, from large chests to toy chests that bring utter mind-blowing quality and elegance to any nursery. And we love that these gorgeous pieces are gender neutral for those parents like Mariah and Nick not wanting to know baby’s gender but wanting a luxury nursery nonetheless.
What is extraordinary about the Notte Fatata line–other than the shear beauty of it–is that it is made with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as all the pieces that have been manufactured since 1941. This family run three-generation business uses all of the ancient furniture making techniques that were used for centuries- making antique quality pieces for the lords and queens of the world. We think this makes it perfect for Mariah’s little lord or queen.
The crib’s upholstered detail can easily be removed for cleaning and eventually can act as your child’s headboard. The small bed has an elegant headboard. A conversion kit will turn our crib into a lifetime bed following the natural course of your children’s lives. The chest of drawers has also been designed with children in mind. In fact, you can easily attach a soft changing area to it and when you don’t need it, it transforms back into a comfortable chest of drawers. Unlike most changing pads the pad on this changer is made of a treated leather that is hand crafted and smooth to the touch. A favorite piece of course is the rocking nursery chair for nursing or story- telling time with parents and grandparents alike.
Never before has this kind of heirloom quality furniture been available for the nursery and through our travels we have encountered a jewel, a furniture maker based in ancient woodworking techniques and quality that is quite simply jaw dropping.
