Given Erica Johnston spent over a decade working on the business side of companies such as Frog Design and One Kings Lane, it’s no wonder this Princeton graduate is behind chic children’s décor brand Pemberley Rose. Johnston launched her elegant brand after the birth of her second child and has since had her whimsical creations featured in magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair. The collection features beautifully illustrated bedding, wall décor, wallpaper and more, all in chic muted colours. Johnston says the pieces are designed to be mixed, matched, and layered — from the nursery to the playroom and beyond. You’ll love Pemberley Rose’s gorgeous pieces as much as your child will.

de Buci Baby
Created by Maya Nairn, de Buci Baby is possibly the most divine baby brand we’ve ever discovered (check out the sleep sack in a blue teacup printed cotton – heaven). Named after Rue de Buci, the street in Paris where Nairn lived when she met her husband, she’s inspired by classic prints such as toile, gingham and stripes and focuses on making a baby’s everyday essentials beautiful. Her sweet blankets, burp cloths, nursing pillows and teddy bears are just too charming for words.
With the vision of creating baby products that were 100 percent non-toxic, New York-based Alexis Spadaro Thalhauser created LexyPexy: an eco-chic collection of wooden teethers handcrafted out of sustainable Vermont Maplewood. It was while she was searching for a baby gift online for a fashionable friend that the idea came to her. “I began trying to think outside the box and I realized I was looking for something which didn’t exist… yet. And so I decided to explore the trendier side of eco baby products,” she says. “After researching safe alternatives to plastic I discovered that wood – yes, wood – is the best choice since it is non-toxic, non-allergenic, naturally antibacterial, and non-splintering!”. She launched with baby toys and teethers based on her favourite chic accessories. “These days, instead of dreaming about which next pair of shoes I have to have, I’m thinking about how I can make them into a cute wood teether or toy,” she says. It’s official, these are the chicest teethers we’ve ever seen.
