Project Nursery’s Skip*Hop Nursery Design Event (Plus A Giveaway!)

This giveaway is now closed.

Project Nursery Skip Hop Design Contest @LaylaGrayce
Vote Here!

Layla Grayce needs your vote! As part of Project Nursery’s Skip*Hop Nursery Design event, we joined actress Tiffani Thiessen, Joy Cho of Oh Joy! and Joni Lay of Lay Baby Lay in an exciting baby room design contest! Inspired by Skip*Hop’s Springtime Birdie Crib Bedding, our design began with classic, neutral furnishings from Babyletto to create a strong foundation that will truly stand the test of time. From there, we introduced bright, modern accents: graphic artwork, a border frame rug and the Skip*Hop crib set, which provided a spirited, colorful pattern to keep the nursery playfully up-to-date.

We invite you to view our nursery by clicking here and, if you like what you see, please vote for Layla Grayce’s nursery as well by selecting a star rating (with 5 stars being your favorite). Vote very carefully because you can only vote once per project. Don’t forget to enter to be eligible for all the amazing prizes you can win daily!

We extend a huge thanks to Project Nursery, Skip*Hop and the other talented designers. And, from all of us at Layla Grayce, we thank our customers for your unending support. We hope our nursery inspires you to have some fun and create a sanctuary that both you and your little one will find comforting, inviting and full of youthful charm.

As a thank you, we’re giving away a Skip*Hop Springtime Birds Musical Crib Mobile (like the one used in our nursery room design!) PLUS a $100 Layla Grayce gift certificate, to 3 lucky winners! That’s right, three of you will receive 1 mobile plus $100 towards your favorite Layla Grayce finds.

Two Dream Playrooms!

Laid-Back and Modern Nursery @LaylaGrayce

When planning a baby and kid-friendly playroom, it should be all about celebrating the joy of childhood. Whether you’re re-purposing an extra bedroom or transforming a finished basement, you can design a space that’s fun, functional and organized. As part of our Nursery Week series, we found two swoon-worthy playrooms and curated a collection of products to help you get the look! The first space, from a modern yet laid-back Los Angeles home, utilizes child-sized storage pieces, a soothing palette and safari animal toys and décor. With our product picks, like the outdoor-inspired Arteriors Coconut Bead Lantern or the practical Spot on Square Storage Shelf, you’ll be on your way to achieving this look in your home!

A more feminine option, this playroom inspires hours of imaginative adventures with whimsical pink and white mobiles, furniture and toys. The vintage-inspired children’s table makes the perfect spot for arts and crafts and stuffed animal tea parties. We chose pieces like the lovable Maxi Rabbit and hand-painted AFK Toy Storage Chest to help you capture this sweet aesthetic for your little one!

1. Maura Daniel Gold Chandelier 2. AFK Gramercy Chest 3. Personalized Pink Wastebasket 4. AFK Limited Edition Barbie Print 5. Sunburst Wall Mirror 6. Ducduc Regency Crib 7. Romantic Lace Wool Rug

Welcome back to Nursery Week at Layla Grayce! When creating a nursery, we want to be sure the crib integrates with the room’s overall theme, yet still makes a statement. So we took one crib – the ducduc Regency – and made it the focal point of three classic, eclectic and elegant spaces. We discovered that this crib is versatile enough to fit a number of design styles! For the first room, we created a vintage Hollywood aesthetic with a glittering gold chandelier and ultra-feminine furniture and accessories.

Colorful & Quirky Nursery @LaylaGrayce

1. Malibu Turquoise Chandelier 2. Ducduc Regency Crib 3. Yellow Chevron Rug 4. Jonathan Adler Dachsund Pink Bookends 5. Oilo Furniture Cohen Glider 6. Bubbles Imagination Stretched Art

If your taste is less romantic and a bit eclectic, we’ve got you covered. In this room, the crib anchors the furniture and accessories’ bright colors, playful patterns and unique textures.

Nature Inspired Nursery @LaylaGrayce

1. Nursery Works White Tree Bookcase 2. DwellStudio Crib Bumper 3. Ducduc Regency Crib 4. 3 Sprouts Owl Mobile 5. DwellStudio Kids Rug

A calm and soothing option, this nature-inspired collection plays on the crib’s rich maple wood construction. We’ve taken a touch of the outdoors into the nursery with a tree-shaped bookcase, floral bedding and a woodland owl mobile.

Molly Sims’ Nursery Design

Vintage Sputnik Pendant, DwellStudio Giraffe Push Toy, Animal Art by Sharon Montrose, Pillows covered in John Robshaw Fabric

Layla Grayce co-owners Tiffany Harris and Wendy Estes had the pleasure of co-designing Molly Sims’ nursery alongside Molly’s longtime friend and designer, Kishani Perera. Molly’s own aesthetic of modern bohemian inspired the look: fresh and modern with a vintage twist. And since Molly isn’t afraid of color, mixing and matching patterns, or breaking the so-called “design rules,” it was guaranteed to be fun right from the get-go.

The New Traditionalists Changing Table, John Robshaw Custom Fabrics in Petra Cobalt and Kota Oyster

John Robshaw block printed fabrics provided a basis for the design, bringing in a palette of blues, pinks and oranges that give the room color and personality, while a soft sky blue on the walls gives the room a light and bright feel. For added functionality, an entire wall of storage and a day bed were installed to make up for the nursery’s lack of closet space.

Molly instantly fell in love with the DucDuc modern furnishing line, and many of the room’s pieces, including the crib’s tie-die finish, feature custom finishes. Kishani found the vintage sputnik pendant, vintage pillows and added the sweet animal art. For all of us, working with Molly was a joyful process from start to finish and Layla Grayce is so excited to have been a part of designing such an amazing nursery for baby Brooks Stuber.
