How to design a nursery right here in LA

People are into owls these days. We get it. But for something a little less mainstream, we like the idea of decorating the nursery with Los Angeles flair. Center everything on the maplewood Caravan crib ($695) by LA-based Kalon Studios. (Husband-and-wife team Johannes Pauwen and Michaele Simmering, who have two daughters, say the crib’s design was inspired by a circus wagon.) We also dig the organic-cotton forrest critters bedding from Amenity Home (from $45), the clean-lined rockers by Manny & Simon, and Sugar Paper’s California print ($50), pressed on archival quality 4-ply paper. So darn cute. And if you’re not willing to fork over the $1,390 for PetitNest’s gorgeous Odette glider, consider their sweet bird wall decals, which run $23 for a pack of 10 (and nary an owl in sight).
