Rebecca Raskind knows a thing or two about the importance of personalization. After she and her husband Jared moved into their Los Angeles fixer-upper, the creative couple immediately got to work transforming it to match their quirky glam style.

Their Sister’s Nursery Although they haven’t released images of daughter Blue Ivy’s nursery, we do know that Bey purchased one badass crib for her.
Like any hopeful mother-to-be, when Michelle found out that she would be welcoming her first child into the world, she practically burst with joy. However, while those nine months of baby preparation seem like eons on paper, time flew by and before she knew it, Michelle was in her third trimester and had no plans for a space to bring her little one home to. Luckily, she discovered Laurel & Wolf and was able to design a safe and stylish nursery just in time for her baby boy, Jonah’s arrival. After

We’re not gonna lie, we were pretty excited to hear that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting a bouncing baby boy. A brother for Nori? SO CUTE! Of course, we immediately started brainstorming how we’d design the nursery of future Baby West. Kim & Kanye aren’t exactly known for their subtly, but they also have an incredible sense of personal style that of course needs to shine through in their new baby’s nursery! The Inspiration: Kim and Kanye’s Daily Fashion The Nursery: Baby Kimye The feel of this nursery is glamorous, moody,

Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton are expecting their second child on April 25, and we’re all day-dreaming about the design of the royal nursery. Since the gender of the baby is unknown (though many are speculating that it will be a little girl named Alice), we have to imagine that the nursery will have a neutral color scheme with sophisticated and cozy furnishings.

We fell in love with Chriselle Lim the moment we laid eyes on her gorgeous blog, The Chriselle Factor, and when we found out she was in the market for a new nursery we jumped on the opportunity to help her create a beautiful new space for her and baby Chloe! (Little Chloe hasn’t made her appearance yet… but soon!) Laurel & Wolf designer Lucinda Pace created a neutral palate nursery for Chriselle and Chloe.
