Today Show Feature: Dream Nursery, on a Baby Budget

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

We were recently honored to work with our friend and new father, Frank Fontana, host of HGTV’s Design on a Dime. When asked by The Today Show to design a stylish nursery for budget-savvy parents, he called upon PoshTots to help pick the perfect products. While we are known for our celebrity clientele and luxury lines, we happen to have hundreds of baby goods that won’t break the bank. After all, just because it’s “posh,” doesn’t mean it has to have a posh price tag!

Here are Frank’s picks for designing your dream nursery on a baby budget:


Savvy Stencils:
We have several stencil styles available on our site, priced from just $10. Create walls that wow with these gorgeous graphics.

Modern Owls in Summer & Fall:
Our extensive selection of amazing artwork begins at just $30 – and there are pieces for every style and season.

Cat’s Paw Blue Rug
The perfect rug will add a design anchor to any space. Adore your floor with our selection of color, shapes and sizes beginning at just $23.

Treetop Friends Baby Bedding
Baby bedding often sets the theme for the entire nursery setting and our complete sets start at just $200.

MTV Feature, Posh Picks for Baby Blue

Babies are on the brain with the recent arrival of a major A-list duo’s darling, Miss Blue Ivy. She is no doubt already the apple of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eye. As the go-to source for celebrity baby décor, PoshTots has had the honor of working with such stars as Heidi Klum, Gwyneth Paltrow and Tori Spelling. When MTV requested a sneak peek at the must-have nursery products of the elite, we put our best foot forward with these fabulous finds.

Dynasty Cradle
This cradle is truly timeless and destined to be a family heirloom with its elegant design. A celebrity favorite and a great way to keep baby close by, it retails for $1,580.

Nava Linens
The cradle’s beauty is enhanced by its bedding by Nava, a go-to designer for stylish, affluent parents for over 25 years. Because her bedding creations are made using fine dupioni silks they are both soft and stunning. Nava has even worked with the first family!

Angora Booties
These ultra-soft slippers are the Jimmy Choos of baby booties and are hand knit from fluffy angora. Rachel Zoe had a pair in baby Skyler’s closet and George Clooney is a fan of gifting this fabulous footwear.

Kumi Kookoon Blanket
Makers of the finest silk charmeuse, Kumi Kookoon is the ultimate in posh baby blankets. They are simply decadent and make a great baby gift. This fabulous Charmeuse Silk Baby Blanket retails for $363.

Limited Edition Baby Carter Canvas Reproduction Wall Hanging
Designed by PoshTots’ exclusive mural artist, Colleen Phelon Hall, this detailed wall hanging is personalized and delicately trimmed with beading. Each hanging can be as customized exactly as you wish. The elaborate hanging featured for Blue is embellished with mini pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Honoring the best products, services and websites for babies and tots, the Cribsie Awards want to hear from you! After you nominate your picks, a panel of industry experts narrow down to the crème de la crème of baby products and allow informed mommies to make the final vote.

Many Posh artisans, including Bugaboo, Oeuf & DucDuc, have been nominated and claimed victory in the past. To sing the praises of your favorite products, follow this link. Of course, we’d be tickled pink if you picked PoshTots!
