Eastside hipsters, Westside beach bums, can’t we all just meet in Hollywood and get along?
Nurseryworks’s new Uptown collection, created by L.A. designer Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey, channels a playful Hollywood Regency vibe that works whether your view is coastal or hilly.
High-contrast black and white lacquer finishes, all-wood construction, and oversize brass hardware read throwback, grown-up, and welcome to the world all at once. A detachable tray means the changer turns into a dresser, office storage, or dining room credenza once you’re done with diapers; the crib converts to a twin-size bed with storage drawers.
Or you could just have your people call Kaye-Honey’s people and let her design the whole nursery from scratch.
Rest assured, she’ll point you in the right direction.
Available at Petit Trésor, 634½ Robertson Boulevard, between Santa Monica Boulevard and Melrose Avenue (310-659-3970). For more information, go to nurseryworks.com. To schedule a private design consultation, go to houseofhoney.la. Uptown nursery collection, $1,200-$1,500.
