For her newborn son Finn’s posh nursery in her LA-area home, Tori Spelling called on BFFs Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (a.k.a. The Guncles), who run a success baby and kid products PR firm (Marque Communications), for help with a giraffe-themed room.
The mom-of-four, a home decor designer herself, oversaw every detail of the room from her LA-area hospital bed while on bedrest with her fourth child.
“I’ve always loved vintage pieces in my home,” Tori tells Celebrity Baby Scoop about the inspiration behind Finn’s giraffe-themed nursery.
She adds: “Vintage pieces add character and story to a room. I love that I’ll be able to tell Finn the stories behind his vintage pieces. And, mixed with new baby items makes for an amazing and eclectic nursery.”
And she got the whole family involved in the decorating fun.
“I think it’s such a fun family experience adding vintage pieces to a nursery,” Tori says. “Once I had a theme, the kids and I would look online and at flea markets, and it made them a part of the process of decorating Finn’s nursery. So once you have a vision of the nursery check out local flea markets and etsy online.”
Tori says that planning during bedrest with placenta previa gave her hope.
“In the early stages of my pregnancy I was shopping at a flea market and found an adorable vintage giraffe figurine,” she says. “That was when I came up for the vision of Finn’s nursery. I wanted to do a blend of vintage touches and modern regency.”
“Dean and I have always known since Stella was born that we would have another baby boy one day and we would name him Finn,” she reveals. “Although we didn’t find out the sex of the baby I committed whole heatedly to a baby boy giraffe nursery for Finn. That very first vintage giraffe figurine I found also stayed on my bedside table in my hospital room for the 2 1/2 months I was there. It gave me hope.”
And she wanted to make a bold and retro statement with Finn’s posh room.
“I wanted his nursery to be bright and bold pop colors so I went with turquoise and orange,” Tori says. “Then to add the vintage touch I added in a retro yellow.”
The Guncles were thrilled to help their BFF create such a fun space for Finn.
“We were thrilled when Tori asked us to help her decorate Finn’s nursery,” says the reality TV dads. “When we started the project we didn’t know that Finn’s journey into this world would be such a dangerous and emotional one. We hope that the room’s decor is a chic and calming space for our little nephew, and a reminder to Tori and Dean of what an amazing gift little Finn is.”
And the designers were sure to share some of their favorite pieces in the luxurious space. To begin, the duc duc Regency crib and Savannah changer.
“I’m obsessed with the crib and changer by ducduc,” Tori says. “I had never seen anything like their designs. Their pieces exude style and glamour. And I knew the Regency crib would be the perfect pinnacle of Finn’s nursery.”
And the “genius” Tempaper wallpaper really gives the room that chic vintage look. These self-adhesive “peel-and-stick” temporary designs were hung with love by hubby Dean McDermott while Tori lived in the hospital for 2 1/2 months.
“The idea of chic yet temporary wallpaper is genius!” Tori shares. “When I learned that I would potentially be spending my entire pregnancy in a hospital room I wanted to decorate to make it feel like home and to give myself a DIY project. Nothing permanent can be on the hospital walls so the Guncles found Tempaper. Dean hung it and every day that wallpaper made me happy. It was a bright spot for me during tough times. I knew it had to be a part of Finn’s nursery as it had been such a huge part of our journey together. Plus I wanted him to finally get to see it and love it as much as I had.”
The orange SPI Baby Beckett dresser is the same as a pink version that sits in big sis Hattie’s nursery.
“I love their dressers,” Tori says. “They are so chic and the orange gives that amazing color pop in the room.”
Other chic items in the room include the 4moms mamaRoo chair that Tori says “has been a constant in my babies’ lives,” and the Nook Sleep Systems Pebble mattress and matching, custom orange ChangePad. And we loved the orange diaper pail by Ubbi.
Sweet dreams in your beautiful room, baby Finn!View Slideshow »»
