The Glamour of Canopy Cribs

I have a serious infatuation with canopy cribs. This does not, however, translate into adult beds. Rather, I equate a baby canopy crib with an oppulance we can afford our little angels. We all have hopes and dreams for the newborns in our lives. Certainly, we all know that “giving” a child the moon is not in his or her best interest. But for me, a white canopy crib is paying tribute to baby’s innocence and purity. Life gets hard soon enough. Babyhood is time to pamper infants….and indulge in some of our favorite luxury buys, as well!  One of my favorites is from Restoration Hardware baby & child, below. The white sutton canopy crib is $999.    

Bratt Decor also has an amazing venetian white wrought iron crib for $966 that would look excellent in a Hollywood-glamour type nursery. (The company offers several additional options for finishes, including gold.) You can make this look modern with bold bedding—or keep it traditional with pastels and a ruffled skirt. I could see this being a family heirloom crib, and Bratt Decor has an excellent reputation for quality. You may recall, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony also chose Bratt Decor cribs for their twins.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Vision

The recent birth of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, reminds me of this W Magazine photo shoot in July 2005.

This concept was created by Brad and photographer Steven Klein, during the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Based on a picture-perfect suburban family with dark secrets, it is a thought-provoking look at the stereotypical American family; a mold the couple always refused to fill. Instead, the couple paved their own path.

Brad, of course, was still married to Jennifer Anniston during this shoot. Angie claims the two became “close friends” on-set. Brad later adopted Jolie’s son Maddox, whom she adopted from Cambodia. Together, they adopted Zahara and Pax, and conceived Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne. After the jump, view baby furniture that would fit in perfectly with this W photo shoot…. [Read more...]

Jolie-Pitt Twins Score Great Gifts

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s newborn twins are still under wraps at the hospital in Nice, France; but People Magazine reports mom and babies will soon depart for home.

For now, home is the family’s 880-acre estate in the south of France, called Cheateau Miraval. The twins will arrive to bundles of gifts.

 

Milkshop, a child’s boutique made popular by their celebrity clientele, sent Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline bunches of goodies.

 

BlaBla Piggy, $35, was sent to Vivienne. The hand-knit doll features modern colors, and is washable.

Milkshop also sent the babies these luxury body products from Kiehl’s. Diaper Rash Ointment and Gentle Cleansing Milk, both $18.

Diddy’s Twin Girls

 

Sean “Diddy” Comb’s twin girls, Jessie James and D’Lila Star Combs, are riding in style. This pink tricycle (above) from Posh Tots is their transportation of choice, and was a  gift from Daddy in honor of their second birthday.

Preparing the Nursery

Brad and Angelina selected their nursery furnishings with help from three designers at Petit Tresor in Hollywood, according to CelebTV. Reports say the pair purchased two $800 organza bassinets, similar to the one shown above. The employees say their color theme is pink, yellow and cream. The store is an A List favorite, with dozens of celebrity clients including Melania Trump, Jennifer Lopez and Tori Spelling.

Adding to the luxurious accomodations, the new Jolie-Pitt nursery will reportedly house two glamourous chandeliers, similar to the one shown above. The twins will be the 5th and 6th kids in the Jolie-Pitt family, joining Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2. Angelina will remain hospitalized until the birth of the twins in coming weeks, according to her physician’s update this morning.
