A nursery fit for a king...a very stylish little king...

Our good friends Kevin and Jill just welcomed into the world their gorgeous son Liam. Jill has an interior design background and is currently a custom specialist at Scandia Down in Kansas City. She has phenomenal taste and when she was telling me her nursery plans I knew it was going to be great. When she sent me the photos, I nearly fell is perfect. It's modern and warm and unique and it totally reflects Jill and Kevin's style. Jill was inventive in her ideas and they used their own touches to make it personal. I am so excited to share with you Liam's stylish Pad:

Custom Missoni Crib Bedding

Ahhh, Rachel Zoe would die for a crib like this! Jill ordered fabric yardage from Scandia Down to make the bumper pad and pleated crib skirt. Scandia Down has a wide range of Missoni fabrics to choose from. She had a seamstress make both pieces using a kit from She ordered the "modern" bumper which is a slip cover, that can be removed and washed if needed! It's a great way to keep your baby crib bedding clean and in great condition. I love the colors in the classic zig zag pattern, it could go boy or girl if needed!

Custom Made Storage Blocks

I love a fellow DIY'er...Kevin and Jill made this fabulous block letter storage unit. I think it MAKES the nursery. It is SO cute and it's personal, which really adds to the room. Jill and Kevin are taking custom orders if you are interested, you can contact Jill via email at If your child's name is too long, you could always do initials! I will be purchasing one for our next child's room, for sure.

Other design info:

They custom covered the glider and ottoman at Nebraska Furniture Mart, but the same glider is also available at USA Baby. We actually got our furniture at USA Baby, I thought they had a great selection! And the service was wonderful...

The crib is by Oeuf-it is the sparrow

The mobile is a photohanger comprised of personal photos for Liam to look up at! So cute!

The Sheepskin rug can be special ordered from Scandia Down

On the windows she used a mirrored window panel from West Elm

Jill and Kevin each wrote a personal letter to Liam that they framed using these from Pottery Barn
