Upscale baby furniture is a hard find, especially if you are looking for quality furnishings. The sophisicated mom who has worked hard to create a home that is tastefully elegant, wants a nursury to be an extention of her home, not just a sore spot of her home which dimisses design and style because it is created for a child. Childrens rooms can be stylish and elegant while being fun, inspiring and playful at the same time. Little girls are romanced with the time old playful tea sets and crackers, dress up clothes and high heels. Lace and beautiful play gowns can capture a little girls imagination for years, as she dreams about growing up.
Petit Tresor, a upscale childrens luxury boutique located in Los Angeles caters to the specialty furnishings not often found at local department stores. Lifelong freinds, Nina Takesh and Samantha Winch met in the second grade, and happened to be pregnant at the same time.
Frustrated with the quality of baby furnishings they had been introduced to abroad, the pair decided to shop for interesting treasures in Paris, Milan and London and then opened up a small boutique in Los Angeles in the famously known area of Robertson and Melrose Place with neighbouring labels such as Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta.
Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Kate Hudson and Katie Holmes have all shoped at their beautiful boutique. When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were expecting twins, they called upon Petit to help design their fabulous nursery. People Magazine featured Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s twins Max and Emme nursury in their March 31, 2008 issue. Rumors speculated People paid $6 million for the nursery pictures. The french inspired room featured fabulous french furniture from the famous baby boutique Petit Tresor.
In their nursery they bought two Chelsea Sleigh cribs, $1390 each, while the magazine featured Bratt Decor ($847 each) The couple spent over $120,000 for the french themed room. Jennifer and Marc Anthony’s added 18-karat gilded trim and chandeliers which was very uncommon for a nursery but added such an elegant uscale look. The article caused a uproar, giving new parents the wrong idea that adding pillows, stuffed animals and blankets in the cribs were ok and safe, while they were suffocation hazards. The critism didn't end there, with the draped canopies hanging over the cribs also could cause strangulation. Although many people do know many home decor magazines stage rooms for the maximum appeal, the nursery was one of the most beautiful upscale rooms ever featured.
