As a second children’s boutique choice for my new San Francisco local series, Aldea seemed like the perfect choice. “Aldea”, which means village, is full of unique, one of a kind toys, unique fabrics and eco-friendly products. It also has a homey and warm feel, with playful decor and a feeling of endless possibilities.
My favourite part of Aldea are their staged designer nursery and toddler bedrooms. Their 7000 sqft Aldea Home showroom is located just a block and a half away from the Baby store at 890 Valencia between 19th and 20th Streets. Here are some picks from the boutique- I really love their variety of wooden mobiles, their modern furniture and their whimsical toy selection.
Visit them at 1017 Valencia Street, SF, Ca

2014 Design Trend via the Bump: Seriously Stylish Nurseries
Trends like chevron and accent walls are being left behind in the dust by more sophisticated and grown up trends for 2014. The nursery is no longer a separate entity from the rest of your home, but an extension of it. Abstract art, big prints, bright colors and bold shapes will be popping up across the nation, in addition to contrasting textures. There is so much room to experiment with faux fur, felt plush toys, velvet and even tufted cribs. It seems that these daring risks are a result of parents wanting the room to be enjoyable for the rest of the family and a room that won’t quickly go out of style as the baby grows older.
Below are some inspiration photos to create your own “seriously stylish” nurseries for 2014!
