Hi.

Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

Beach Pretty House Style: Light and Airy Designer Nurseries

 Light and Airy Designer Nurseries


Today, Beach Pretty features the delightful baby rooms designed by Mandarina Studio.  Amanda Reid founded Boston-based Mandarina Studio to create an interior design business built on creativity and collaboration. Amanda says "one of her favorite projects to take on is the design of a nursery. It’s such a delight and an exciting challenge to envision and create a fun, yet cozy space for an infant that a child can also grow into to the toddler years and beyond."

When Amanda designs a nursery, she says, "it’s not a about a theme, but about a child and his or her family. Often that takes the shape of focusing on a favorite color or an inspiration piece like a quilt made by a family member or, if I’m designing a room for a child who’s a bit older, I’ll take inspiration from a favorite hobby."

A key for Amanda's designs is that Nurseries also have to be functional and parent-friendly places, too.  Mandarina Studio always make storage a key element in children’s rooms. Keeping clutter under control and making organization easy drive a lot of elements when it comes to spaces for children.
