Holiday Gift Guide: For the Nursery

December 4, 2012

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.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.
