Kelly Wearstler you are not. (You’re not even Kelly Wrestler.) But it’s easy enough to whip a nursery into shape.
Start small with Bloom’s Alma crib. Perfect for cosleeping and tight spaces, the compact-fold construction makes storage (and transport) a snap. Or try Monte Designs’s Ninna-Nanna bassinet with a removable basket for go-anywhere portability. Later on, it’s the perfect spot to stash toys. (Both available at B Braithwaite, 1198 Howell Mill Road, suite 110; 404-605-0963).
Set the tone with one extra-special piece like Brooklyn artist Tamar Mogendorff’s whimsical birdcage mobile. And don’t be shortsighted, AGE Design’s new HiLo chair goes from 6 months to 6 years with a simple swivel. (Both available at Seed Factory, 1170 Howell Mill Road; 404-355-2043.)
