A Quick Chat with Gail Sedigh, Mariah and Nick’s Nursery Decorator

Gail Sedigh of Art for KidsWe have been so fortunate over the years to work with the best artisans in the industry.  One of our long-time (and favorite) artisans is Gail Sedigh, of Art for Kids.  She does gorgeous, sophisticated French provincial-inspired pieces that lend an elegant feel to any child’s room.

Super talented, she was recently asked to decorate Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s twins’ nursery.  Here’s a peek at her designs, and some insight into this beautiful room.

Your stuff is so gorgeous, and one of our best sellers, I imagine you were a shoo-in when it came to Mariah decorating her nursery?  How did it all come to be? We received a call from Mariah’s people.  They had done a lot of research on baby furniture and designers and presented her with choices.  We’re proud she chose us!

What are some of the items you used from your collections? We used the Serafina Crib in Versailles Crème Finish for the girl and the Heirloom Crib in the same finish for the boy.  We used an AFK French Wide Chest with our Trumeau Mirror above it, the Maxwell Upholstered Daybed, matching Mayfair Swivel Gliders and our Mayfair RoundTufted Ottoman, Sandrine Table, Juliette Table & Chairs Set, and Eloise Clothes Valet as well as a custom bookcase we built to fit under the ‘faux’ arched window.

What were Mariah and Nick’s favorites? Mariah had been staying at a spa when the installation was done.  I’m told she just sat and stared in awe at everything and in the days before they were born could be found ‘nesting’ in the room.  And she loved that Eloise Clothes Valet!  Nick was involved and supportive of Mariah’s choices.  He just wanted to make sure the room wasn’t too “girlie”.

The room, for all its decadence, is still so serene and quietly elegant.  Was that Mariah’s direction, or did she look to you for the design?  How much did Mariah drive the design of the nursery?  Was there anything specific Mariah wanted? I think Mariah had definite ideas and wishes for her nursery.  She very much wanted a ceiling mural with “the colors of the clouds of a Bahamian Sunset”.   AFK’s muralist, Marnie Vollenhals, painted an amazing sky with gold leaf stars.  Mariah loved it!  Here is a picture of it.  That set the tone for the nursery – serene and restful with a bit of magic!; she left the rest of the design up to me.

Ceiling

How did you come about the creaminess of the palette?  We’re loving the green. Mariah and Nick wanted pink for Monroe but wanted to vary a bit  from the typical “blue” boy’s palette.  We settled on green – Mariah liked the tie-in to “nature.”  I had Marnie paint another mural on the wall — a-trompe l’oeil scene that I originally suggested  be of Central Park because Mariah loves New York,  her hometown!   But when Marnie was actually painting the scene, Mariah decided that instead she wanted a more “pastoral” scene — with lambs and a bubbling brook, which is what we painted.   Ultimately Mariah loved the ceiling sky so much that she decided to have the pastoral scene painted over with more sky.  Which one do you like more?  Did she make the right choice?

Mural

What’s in the room that we don’t see in the pictures? The Maxwell Day Bed, our custom designed built-in closets and changing station and the amazing sky mural!

What are your rules for decorating a nursery? Comfort and beauty – in that order!

Tell us a little about you and your business…how did you get into this?  What are your inspirations?  Why children’s furniture? I think it’s a calling.  I’ve just always loved juvenile interiors.  I do whole house décor, but especially enjoy creating nurturing, graceful spaces to enjoy the most precious time life gives us – childhood.  I really don’t understand when people say “they’ll outgrow it so soon.”  My pieces are designed to transition into grown-up rooms.  I treasured every moment of my own children’s ‘nursery’ time and I want to help others create fabulous rooms as well.

You can see more of Gail’s creations and her line here.

Purplicious

A while back on our blog, we featured Gwyneth Paltrow’s children’s room in her Nashville apartment.  It was posted on her blog, Goop, as well.  It features our Boardwalk Bunk Bed in Eggplant.  We’ve always loved how just the right amount of purple can lend a whimsical, yet sophisticated touch to any space.

And now, we’ve discovered that it is, once again, featured on this amazing site, Nursery Notations.  Which is great for three reasons:  1) because it means that other people feel the same way we do about purple, and 2) because we discovered an amazing new site.  It’s so well done, and it speaks to our very nature as nursery connoisseurs, of sorts.  We love finding new inspiration, and this site reads like a luxurious magazine.

Oh, the third reason:  they dig the purple too!
