Your quest for timeless nursery decor has you seeing stars (and dots and stripes).
Seek refuge from repeating shapes at Snider Plaza’s recently opened children’s furniture and accessories boutique, Night & Day.
The serene space is filled with hand-painted cribs and beds, custom high chairs, frilly linens, and antique-chic accessories handpicked by owner Jennifer Howell, whose classic taste is known to long-time customers who covet the smocked apparel and impeccable monograms at sister store, Hip Hip Hooray.
You’re sure to notice a common thread between the two shops.
In other words, there’s a pattern.
