Baby’s Nursery Design and Décor

Designing and decorating baby’s first sacred space outside the womb can feel daunting…but can be so much fun for the expectant or new mom! If ever there was a reason to pour love, joy, and hope into a room, it’s in anticipation of the arrival of a beautiful new being into this world! As nursery designer Richard Alvor notes, “Time in the nursery is a different kind of time. This is a gentle time, a quiet time, a one-on-one time; this is the beginning of connecting with your child.”



Think of the purpose of a nursery. It is a place for function, like sleeping and changing diapers. But it is also a special space in which to bond – to feed, to cuddle, to play.

Homeworks Etc. is pleased to offer two introductory DIY Nursery sessions – two opportunities to create some magic for baby’s first room:

What inspired you to start your biz?

Our darling beaver of a son was an awful teether and we wanted to find safe and stylish solution to help babies through the difficult teething stages.

What’s the best part about owning your own business?

Being able to be so incredibly passionate about what I do is the best part of owning a business.

Parent feedback about your Modern Teething Jewelry.

Teething is one of those things parents desperately find a solution for so we get a lot of fantastic feedback. I've had a few parents claim that we sprinkle our products with magical fairy dust.

Why is your product a must have?

Every baby goes through a teething phase and it affects so many things. I can't count the amount of times a mom has blamed teething because their baby was crying, grumpy, or wasn't eating or sleeping. Our products gives a physical comfort to those sore teething gums and provides visual and tactile stimulations for babies.

What ways are you creative with your kids?

I think sometimes we try and take control over too many things. When it comes to being creative, I let the kids take over. Their imagination will surprise you! Sometimes we can learn a thing or two from them. Our favourite activity is pretend play! Who doesn't love a world where anything can happen! :)

Coconut and Oat Milk Bath Review by Nursery and Kids Design

Amanda was inspired to start Bébé de Luxe after making the first batch of our signature Coconut & Oat Milk Bath as a DIY Christmas gift for my friends and their babies for Christmas 2014.

There has been fantastic feedback from both parents using Bébé de Luxe on their littles and adults using the product themselves. People keep telling Amanda that they love it for soothing eczema too.

It is very gentle for sensitive baby's skin and also doubles as a luxury soak when mama needs some "me" time!  coconut milk bath by Bebe de Luxe

My Review

I totally agree.  My kids and I have used this product and not only is a bath a nice getaway, Bebe de luxe leaves you feeling soothed, relaxed, and skin silky smooth.

We had the change to interview Amanda and ask a few questions about family and biz:

What’s the best part about owning your own business?

I love connecting with customers and other entrepreneurs. Networking is my favourite part!

What is your favorite family activity?

Anything that involves getting outside and playing.  Rian, my son,  is a very active little guy and a boy through and through. Although he does love to cook and bake with mama and always has to be on a chair at the counter or on my hip.

Interview with Baby Jack & Co.


About Kelley, Owner of Baby Jack & Company

Baby Jack creates modern sensory tag blankets and toys for kids of all ages. Kids develop cognitively, socially and emotionally through sensory play and the ribbons along the products appeal for tactile play, stimulation and comfort.  All products are designed with entertaining educational prints to appeal to a younger audience but to also grow with the child.

What inspired you to start your biz?

My son Jack is very sensory focused. He was playing with a ribbon loop tag blanket and got his finger intertwined. We now design our products with sewn shut ribbons.

What’s the best part about owning your own business?

Being able to create and show my children how you can think of anything and make it come to life.

Parent feedback about  Baby Jack Blankets:

It's the go-to baby shower gift and baby's favorite security blanket.

Why is your product a must have?

All kids need a sense of comfort and children develop cognitively, socially and emotionally through sensory play.

Do you have a  Parenting tip or idea to encourage creative learning with kids?

I love how artistic my children have become. Drawing and coloring is a past time that we love. Sometimes I show them how to design textiles on my computer.Baby Jack and Co educational and sensory blanketsBaby Jack and Co sensory blankets
