The hippest crib on the block
By Sandra Barrera, Staff Writer

Article Last Updated: 04/06/2007 04:48:17 PM PDT


When Tori Spelling began planning her baby boy's nursery, she went straight for the hip online boutique Nursery Couture.

"Because Tori and Dean (McDermott, her husband) are ultra-modern, funky people, they wanted to stick with the same theme for their nursery," Spelling's designer Katy Mimari says.

Photos of little Liam Aaron McDermott's streamlined, modern digs were recently splashed all over In Touch, Us Weekly and Life & Style magazines. You can't open a weekly these days without seeing which celebrity has the hot "new" baby trend.

And one of the biggest trends right now is a parent-friendly, design-conscious nursery, according to Target maternity clothing designer Liz Lange, who recently judged the baby nursery episode of Bravo's "Top Design."

Be a 'cool parent'

"It's not just buying designer furniture — but hiring a professional decorator to design the room," Lange says. "It's become another room in the home that you want to reflect your taste as a cool parent. You're not checking your good taste at the nursery door."

Among the tastiest additions to the modern nursery is midcentury furniture from Ducduc, David Netto and Nurseryworks.

And the high-end nursery



also transforms as a baby grows. Cribs become beds. Changing tables become chests of drawers.

"It's the mini-me thing, not baby rooms that are so babyish," Lange says. "It's another very tasteful room in the house."

Modern wasn't Northridge mom Jodi Groff's thing.

She had more of a "Zen nursery" in mind for her now-3-month-old daughter, Marlie. So she hired Shalena Smith of Ga Ga Designs.

Smith has designed nurseries for rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs, tennis star Pete Sampras and actress Charlotte Ross. She also designed one for Groff's now-20-month-old daughter, Estee.

"I wanted the girls' rooms to be consistent with the rest of the house, and it would be out of place to do big graphic circles and Swedish furniture," Groff, 34, says.

How much? That much

In Groff's daughters' nurseries, less is more.

More than $16,000 went into Estee's elegant, uncluttered room with its $100-a-gallon metallic tone-on-tone striped wall, lilac shag rug and custom pieces, including Bella Notte crib bedding and a chunky, white changing table by Ga Ga Designs that converts into a dresser.

"No one is ever going to know that she used this as a changing table," Smith says, lifting the changing-pad frame off the top of the dresser. "What's nice is it grows up with the child."

The same espresso brown dresser with pink, rose-shaped glass knobs was used in the $12,000 room for Marlie.

The walls are embellished in subtle curls hand-painted in the same metallic paint. On the espresso brown Bratt Decor sleigh crib is custom Maddie Boo bedding with a plain ecru Koala Kids sheet.

"I did spend a lot to make it what I wanted it to be, but I didn't spend a lot because I thought I had to," Groff says. "When we were picking out furniture, I told Shalena that my husband wanted espresso brown ... and she said Bratt Decor was coming out with what's supposed to be the new hot crib."

She found out just how "hot" it was on a recent shopping trip to Little Red Barn in Calabasas, where she learned the crib had a 20-week waiting list.

Rocking that rug

Spelling envisioned a brown, blue and lime color scheme, modern pieces, dark wood, bubble motifs and a zebra rug by Jonathan Adler for her L.A. home.

A zebra rug?

"She previously purchased it," Mimari says. "She said, 'I know I want a modern nursery. I know I want to use Caden Lane bedding. But I'm in love with this rug, and I don't know how it's going to work.'"

And yet it fit perfectly with the ultra-modern Aerial Crib by Nurseryworks and matching changing table with the white-on-white circle designs, as well as the mini library by Oeuf.

"The library has all these cubbies, so it was a fun place to put little accents like picture frames and stacks of blankets," Mimari says. "It made it a little more eclectic, which is cool, because it opens the door to more mommies who maybe aren't in the mix of things in New York or L.A. to go, 'Well, maybe I can be more modern and not have it stand out from the rest of my home.' "

B&B and baby

Spelling's home nursery was echoed in a nook in the master bedroom at Chateau La Rue, home of the top-rated Oxygen reality series "Tori & Dean: Inn Love."

Mimari says the star wanted her newborn to feel at home.

For the B&B, Spelling chose the Platform Crib by Oeuf.

"The reason we ended up picking it to go in the bed and breakfast was because she only had a 6-foot wall to work with in the master bedroom, but she wanted it to function like a nursery," Mimari says. "A nursery typically has a crib, a changing table and then a rocker in it.

"But there wasn't enough to put all three and so what was really cool about the Oeuf crib is that the changer is on top — and it can be removed," she says. "And because it's a platform crib, it can float in the center of the room. It doesn't have to be pushed up against the wall."

You don't have to trade your newborn baby to get the high-end designer looks favored by the rich and famous. Check out these swanky nursery staples and shrewd look-alikes that cost a fraction of the price:

Posh: ducduc Morgan crib is $2,395 (toddler conversion kit is $1,500 extra)

Prudent: Argington Sahara crib is $685 (toddler conversion kit is $198 extra)

Posh: Nurseryworks Two Wide Changing Table is $1,200

Prudent: Offi Bebe Changing Table is $599

GQ to tennis studs: Stay single!


The New York Post's Page Six informs us that the latest issue of GQ features what is no doubt a well-researched article about male tennis stars losing their game shortly after saying their wedding vows. Andrew Corsello, writing for the magazine, calls this decline "the curse of the succubus," and as an example cites Pete Sampras' fall from the top after his marriage to actress Bridgette Wilson. (That bitch!) According to Page Six, Corsello also notes that Jimmy Connors, Björn Borg and John McEnroe saw their careers slump as a result of she-devil wives. What seems to be taking place is not merely a loss of game but a frightening overall emasculation. In fact, it may be worth putting a moratorium on marriage for all athletes until we get more solid results.

But unfortunately, Corsello doesn't probe this dilemma any further, leaving us to guess whether female players too lose their stuff after matrimony. Or if gay players experience a fallout once committed. Who knows what kind of disastrous results he might have discovered.

You never know where you're going to find a Diamond Rio aficionado. At the recent wedding of Tennis champion Pete Sampras and actress Bridgette Wilson, the newlyweds danced their first dance to Rio's "I Know How The River Feels," a highlight of the ceremony spotlighted in the recent issue of In Style Magazine. The group has forwarded their best wishes to the bride and groom on their recent nuptials.:angel: :angel: :angel: :D

The girl at Pete's tennis elbow; Hollywood hopeful Bridgette is still looking for big movie break.(News)

From: Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland) | Date: July 1, 2000 | Author: Mcgivern, Mark | More results for: pete & bridgette sampras

THIS is the All-American girl who has stolen tennis star Pete Sampras's heart.

Actress Bridgette Wilson and Pistol Pete say they are set to tie the knot early next year.

But while the reigning Wimbledon champion is a household name, stunning Bridgette is usually found way down on a made-for-TV movie's credits.

However, there's no doubt marrying ...

BTW: When talking to Pete Sampras a couple weeks back and listening to him discuss his 2002 down period, he mentioned how upset he was that critics were blaming his relationship with his soon-to-be-bride Bridgette Wilson. Pete over-dramatizes how many critics took a swipe at Bridgette's Wimbledon love notes, but be that as it may, when do we start blaming Mirka Vavrinec for Roger's slump (smile, smile)?

Sampras home enjoys its pasta
Steven J. Austin

What do you get when a Hollywood actress marries one of the greatest athletes in history? Well, it results in a busy household with two active young sons!

You know Bridgette Wilson-Sampras from her roles in movie hits like "Billy Madison" and "The Wedding Planner." She's co-starring with Ving Rhames in the upcoming movie "Phantom Punch," about the life of boxer Sonny Liston.

Married to tennis legend Pete Sampras, she is no stranger to balancing hectic home and work schedules. Here, she shares tips for cooking with kids.

For more easy recipes and ideas for the entire family, visit www.scholastic.com/barilla.

Q . All children seem to love pasta. And what sauces do your children enjoy best?

A . I am really fortunate in that my boys are both great eaters! They will eat pasta with vegetables, fish, chicken -- you name it. My boys enjoy simple sauces like butter and parmesan cheese, or Alfredo.

Q . And the top tips for cooking with children?

A . Take them shopping and let them pick out a few ingredients and look for kid-friendly options. Assign them small tasks when you're preparing the meal. My boys help me measure ingredients. And stick to a schedule. Try to serve dinner at the same time a few days a week or create a family dinner night for the same day each week

Q . You were raised in Oregon. Was cooking a tradition in the family?

A . My family loves to cook. In fact, I learned just about everything from my mother, grandmother, and my great-grandmother. To this day, I call them in the middle of cooking to ask advice when I'm not sure what to do. We always ate together as a family. A staple for us growing up was pasta with the family's Bolognese sauce, and my grandma's famous desserts like apple pie. Of course, I plan to continue to pass these recipes on to my children.
