We all know Tori Spelling is the Queen of Design when it comes to her home! We have seen it unfold on TV, that she enjoys finding every single teeny, tiny piece!
So, you know that when Tori calls upon long time friends Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (aka: The Guncles), who run a successful baby and kid products PR firm (Marque Communications), for help she (A). Really Needs It! And (B). Really, Really (Did I say Really) trusts them for this extremely special nursery in her LA-area home, Spelling called on longtime friends
Because of Tori’s medical condition with her 4th pregnancy she needed to do the room quickly because she did not know if she would deliver early a fact that they really could not share with anyone else. FACT! Tori, oversaw every detail of the room from her LA-area hospital bed.
Tori Tells us: “In the early stages of my pregnancy I was shopping at a flea market and found an adorable vintage giraffe figurine. That was when I came up for the vision of Finn’s nursery. I wanted to do a blend of vintage touches and modern regency. Dean and I have always known since Stella was born that we would have another baby boy one day and we would name him Finn. Although we didn’t find out the sex of the baby I committed whole heatedly to a baby boy giraffe nursery for Finn. That very first vintage giraffe figurine I found also stayed on my bedside table in my hospital room for the 2 1/2 months I was there. It gave me hope.”
What colors? Tori: “I wanted his nursery to be bright and bold pop colors so I went with turquoise and orange. Then to add the vintage touch I added in a retro yellow.”
Bill and Scout explain that: “”We were thrilled when Tori asked us to help her decorate Finn’s nursery. When we started the project we didn’t know that Finn’s journey into this world would be such a dangerous and emotional one. We hope that the room’s decor is a chic and calming space for our little nephew, and a reminder to Tori and Dean of what an amazing gift little Finn is.”
Here are some details on how to make a nursery happen ASAP With a little commentary from Tori herself!!
ducduc “Regency” crib and “Savannah” changer were custom finished to Spelling’s liking and shipped from the company’s East Coast headquarters. “I’m obsessed with the crib and changer by ducduc. I had never seen anything like their designs. Their pieces exude style and glamour. And I knew the Regency crib would be the perfect pinnacle of Finn’s nursery.”
Tempaper – Temporary wallpaper the walls of Finn’s nursery are covered in self-adhesive, “peel-and-stick”, temporary wallpaper. The design (“Marrakesh Honey Jade”) is the same one that the Guncles discovered and husband Dean hung in Spelling’s hospital room for her 2 1/2 months stay. “The idea of chic yet temporary wallpaper is genius! When I learned that I would potentially be spending my entire pregnancy in a hospital room I wanted to decorate to make it feel like home and to give myself a DIY project. Nothing permanent can be on the hospital walls so the Guncles found Tempaper. Dean hung it and every day that wallpaper made me happy. It was a bright spot for me during tough times. I knew it had to be a part of Finn’s nursery as it had been such a huge part of our journey together. Plus I wanted him to finally get to see it and love it as much as I had.”
SPI Baby dresser The orange “Beckett” dresser is the same as a pink version that sits in Hattie’s nursery. “I love their dressers. They are so chic and the orange gives that amazing color pop in the room.”
Other Must Have Items in the Room and more comments from Tori!
1. Nook Sleep Systems “Pebble” mattress and matching, custom orange ChangePad. And how does she really feel? “Gorgeous and so cozy for baby. Finn loves it.”
2. 4moms mamaRoo baby swing. Tori says that, “The mamaRoo has been a constant in my babies’ lives. Hattie loved hers and now Finn adores his. It’s so soothing for baby. A must have.”
3. Ubbi Diaper Pail in orange
Spelling found the vintage giraffe lamps on the dresser online, and grabbed the two side-by-side antique mirrors from her own LA-area home decor and gift boutique, InvenTORI. The two knotted rope puffs are also available at her store.
Curtains and pillows were all custom-made with fabric Spelling found from Rikshaw Design. A matching giraffe blanket from Rikshaw hangs on the side of the crib.
DIY! Loving DIY decor, Tori wanted to make a few items for the nursery…
TORI: “Finn’s orange area rug were vintage placemats I found at an estate sale and made into a rug.”
TORI: “Finn’s yellow bookshelf was an old chipped red $5 bookshelf I found at a yard sale. Liam and Stella and I sanded it and painted it yellow to match Finn’s chair. The kids loved making something for the new baby’s room.”
Manny & Simon wooden giraffe push toy sits on the dresser.
A Serena + Lily brown ” Menagerie” giraffe bookend sits on the bookshelf.
