Our style philosophy is based on creating an enchanting space with timeless charm that every little girl will love from the age of two to eighteen. Our goal is to continuously try to push the boundaries of layering unique color combinations with bold patterns and original design details.
What inspired you to become a designer and start a business?
What began as a possible future in fashion design quickly changed to interior design after I completed one quarter at a fashion school in Atlanta. I toured their interior design gallery and realized instantly that my passion for design was more for interiors than clothing. I transferred back to the University of Georgia and completed classes to fulfill my portfolio for their residential design program. During my two years in their design program, I started a small drapery workroom out of my house to pay my way through school and fell in love with textiles, sewing and creating new designs.
Why did you choose to design children’s bedding and décor?
After my sweet little girl climbed out of her crib at 23 months old, I started my search for unique and whimsical “big girl” bedding. Although I found numerous options I loved for her nursery, I was surprised at how limited I felt the options were for ages two and up. I became inspired to create a magical space that matched her personality and was unique to anything I had found. After completing my first set of samples, I was overwhelmed with the positive response from family and close friends. My sketchbook was full in no time and I found myself dreaming up new designs and completed collections every free moment I had.
What is your favorite part of your daily work when you reflect on the day, what is most rewarding?
Wow, I don’t even know where to begin! I simply love to design. I love to sketch… I love to see my creations in the workroom… I love to create new color palettes and find inspirations for new collections… I love to see my ideas coming to life and of course my absolute favorite would be seeing the completed rooms for our photo shoots. I really do love it all. What makes my day most though is the wonderful feedback I receive from customers, future customers and those just inspired by my designs.
If you had to pick a favorite piece from your collection, what would it be?
One of my favorite pieces is our bolster pillows. I feel like they are a work of art on their own and add the perfect touch of whimsy to even the simplest bed linens. Some of my collections started with my vision of a precious, girlie bolster design.
What sets you apart from other designers in your industry?
I think I will step lightly on this question because there are so many amazingly talented designers in the industry and I am honored to even be considered among some of them. In my early days of design, I found that my clients seemed to all have trouble visualizing my designs. When I started my bedding company, I decided to give my clients the complete picture with fully furnished and accessorized rooms with each bedding collection. I feel like each room is unique and beautifully designed and truly represents who I am as a designer.
Do you have any advice for other working moms?
My advice would be to simply go for it. I had a vision and a couple of design ideas and just decided that the sky was the limit. I knew I was competing with children’s bedding companies that have been around for decades, but I also knew that I would be a better and more fulfilled mother if I pursued my dream.
Do you have any news that you would like to share, perhaps about upcoming designs or introductions to your line?
Our newest collection was just introduced in March. This collection combines our love for bright colors with some darker, more subdued tones that you would not necessarily associate with a little girl’s room. Overall it is enchanting, sophisticated and of course contains our signature touch of whimsy.
You may recognize this bedding from the room that was featured on The Doctors TV show last week! Isn’t it gorgeous?!
