I’m a sucker for quirky nursery decor, so this fresh range of handmade designer items has me agog. While shopping for decorator items for each of my sons’ nurseries, I’ll admit I was left wanting. Unless it’s the usual planes, trains and automobiles, the choice can be somewhat stunted.
Oh, how I would have gone weak at the knees for a quirky monster mobile. Empire Lane’s director Nicole Champman also noted a distinct lack of eclectic designer decorations on the market after she had her first child, so took to crafting some herself. It was the beginning of a beautiful new label.
As a freelance interior designer and beauty journalist, Nicole has honed her skills into creating a stunning range of nursery decorations. The mobiles are fun and bright, with whales, birds, elephants, and of course those friendly monsters, fashioned from a huge array of fabrics. Stripes, spots, vintage, paisley – there’s bound to be something to suit almost any nursery theme.
As much as I adore the mobiles, it’s the change mat covers that have me hooked. A clever idea to give any change station a lift, or tie it in with the rest of the room. They’re designed to suit most standard change mats and are machine washable. The mobiles cost $69.95, and the change mat covers start at $59.95 – and Empire Lane offers free shipping on everything!
