Before her blogging career, Gabrielle was designer and art director in New York. Now she gets her creative fix seeking out, writing about, or giving away all things well designed. If she's not online, you can find her dreaming of sugary treats and doing cool things with her family.
After 8 years in New York and a stopover in Colorado, she currently lives in the French countryside where she and Ben Blair are raising Ralph, Maude, Olive, Oscar, Betty & Flora June. And eating lots of cheese.

I love it when parents are able to successfully infuse their personal style into a nursery space, because why not create a room that feels like home for everyone who spends time in it? This nursery for a baby boy is living large in the busy city of Los Angeles and has so much going for it -- from the mismatched letter wall to the cool, industrial clothing rack.

This beautiful baby boy nursery features a more traditional design approach with a few fun accents artfully worked in. That daybed for one -- so unique! And we'll talk about the plaid footstool later, I'm a little bit obsessed. Click through to see more of this space below!
