Nurseries We Love: Metallic Touches

A little bit neutral, a whole lot of glam, nurseries are going sleek and sophisticated by way of metallic touches. From intricate wallpapers in gold and silver to giant poufs, shiny pillows and mirrored furniture, there’s something to be said for adding a dose of sparkle to your sparkling newborn’s haven.

Silver, grey and white merge together in a nursery that is serenely glam.

Nurseries We Love: Nautical

This classic theme has become a modern go-to for the nursery. Traditionally displayed in a blue and white palette, touches of red, yellow and even pink breathe new life into all things nautical for your little one’s haven.

A soothing space reflects small touches of life on the water.

Mom Style File: Jessica Alba Part II

maternity clothes

We just can’t get enough of Jessica Alba’s casual-chic style. Even when running errands, Jessica manages to look polished and sophisticated. Layering is a huge trend for fall, and we love how Jessica does it oh, so right. Jessica’s pairing of a burgundy jacket with on-trend plaid looks impeccable with cropped skinny jeans.

Try the look with our structured cascade maternity cardigan layered with our plaid maternity tunic underneath for a touch of texture. Finish it off with a pair of SOLD Design Lab cropped maternity jeans featuring our patented Secret Fit Belly®, which will keep you both comfortable and stylish during your pregnancy. For a final touch, get into the pattern mixing groove with the unexpected addition of leopard print flats.

A Q&A from The Learning Studio!

Lauren Deneroff, founder of mama{love}, a boutique consulting and baby planning firm, teaches a fabulous Baby Essentials Workshop at The Learning Studio inside of our Destination Maternity store on Madison Avenue. Here, we ask and she answers the questions you want to know.

What do you love about teaching the Baby Essentials Workshop at The Learning Studio?

I love helping new moms prepare for their baby’s arrival! The process can be very overwhelming and some first-time moms don’t know where to start. The Baby Essentials Workshop breaks it down into Baby Care Needs, Nursery Organization and a Guide to Baby Gear. I provide detailed recommendations on the must-haves: what they are and why they need them based on concerns such as budget, lifestyle and space. I love teaching new moms how to make their lives easier by being prepared, organized and informed.

How did you come to teach this type of program, what is your background?

I began teaching workshops when I started my company, mama{love}. We are a maternity consulting and baby planning service that helps expectant moms prepare for baby’s arrival, and also provide support thereafter. I have 10 years of experience as a teacher, holding a Master of Arts in Education (M.A.Ed.), as well as a background in counseling with a Master of Social Work (MSW). However, my best preparation for my work is being a mother of two to Brody, 3 ½ and Harper, 1.

What do moms and moms-to-be enjoy most about your workshop?

I think I get moms excited! Having a thorough, clear plan laid out is an invaluable service, especially for busy, working moms or women who are the first of their friends to be expecting. Walking them through the process helps alleviate anxiety, resulting in them feeling ready and less stressed!

Why do you like teaching at the Destination Maternity Learning Studio? 

Destination Maternity is the only maternity retailer that not only offers great options for pregnant women, but it also provides the chance to learn about pregnancy and parenting. Prenatal classes can be very expensive; The Learning Studio offers many affordable resources for the expectant mom. I love being a part of the team and supporting women on their journey.

Look Who’s Laughing!

What better sound exists than a baby’s laugh? Add two of them laughing together and it’s another level of adorable! YouTube user, It’s Judy’s Life, shared this heartwarming video of her daughter interacting with another baby friend. We can’t help but smile at these two and we know you will too!

Not Your Average Lullabies

No matter your age or genre preference, music speaks to all, even the tiniest of listeners! It truly is the universal language.
