We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with Kelly. She is an exceptional photographer, our dear friend and a fully-accredited Tuckista!

She is responsible for the gorgeous photography in the Look Book we sent out a few weeks ago. If you haven’t had a chance to peruse that ‘baby’ please take a peek below:
Here are Kelly’s Top 5 picks (with a + 1 bonus) for Christmas Giving for the Nursery!
1. Gus* Modern GT Rocker.
Because every momma deserves to look and feel good when they are rocking their babies! Amazing to look at, amazing to rock in. What you don’t know about this super sleek rocking chair is that both parents can sit in it and rock baby together. Now that rocks!
2. Themis Mobile designed by Clara von Zweigbergk
It not only amuses baby for several minutes of freedom at a time (and sometimes right to sleep!) but it is super aesthetic and offers a vibrant pop of colour and adds a bold shot of hip-ness to your nursery. Begone pastel disney characters!
3. “Bank in the Form of a Pig” – designed by Harry Allen
These are one of a kind keepsake pieces, crafted by Harry Allen and numbered accordingly on the flipside. These beautiful unique pieces of decorative art offer the added bonus of teaching the value of monetary savings. It’s never too early to start stashing the scratch for that college education. Where were these things when I was a kid!?
4. Gus* Modern Picture Rails (3′ and 5′ options) (to display storybooks!)
Stacking books on a bookshelf or in a box is no fun. Encourage literary development by making reading material the focal point in your child’s nursery by displaying your favorite books on these sleek and highly functional Gus shelves. Um, hello there uber cool parent with a flare for style.
5. Design House Stockholm Arrow Hanger designed by by Gustav Hallén.
Beautiful and colourful hooks are seriously robust and can be placed low for hanging baby stuff. We use ours like crazy, and here’s a bonus: they are their own art installation!
BONUS ITEM (On Jude’s Santa List) Areaware Alphabet Blocks designed by Pat Kim.
Another opportunity to create an aesthetic and educational environment for baby. These letter blocks will keep on giving with their versatile and decorative function. You will see these puppies proudly displayed in your home rather than on kijiji after your little one master’s the ABC’s.
