Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott opened their doors to Growing Your baby to show off their 10-month-old son Finn‘s Giraffe themed nursery.
The proud mom of four reveals that she called on longtime friends Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (aka: The Guncles), who run the popular baby and child products PR firm Marque Communications, for help when creating Finn’s nursery.
A home decor designer herself, Spelling oversaw every detail of the room from her LA-area hospital bed where spent over 2½ months suffering from placenta previa (when the placenta forms too low in the uterus, causing cramping and bleeding).
“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.”
“I wanted his nursery to be bright and bold pop colors so I went with turquoise and orange, ” she added. “Then to add the vintage touch I added in a retro yellow.”
The room is a mix of old and new. Spelling used different design styles including re-finished yard and estate sale finds. To give the room a modern feel DucDuc’s “Regency” crib and “Savannah” 4 drawer changer were custom finished to suit Tori’s style.
“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.”
For Finn’s dresser Tori chose SPI Baby’s “Beckett” dresser, 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.”
The 4Moms mamaRoo has also been one of Tori’s favorite pieces of gear for her little ones.
“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.”
Aside from the many pieces she purchased, Tori wanted to add a few personal touches to the room.
“Finn’s orange area rug were vintage placemats I found at an estate sale and made into a rug. 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.”
“The macramé mobile with hanging paper mâché giraffes was made with a friend who taught me how to macramé. I love making things for a room. Makes it so personal.”
