Who

Babies/Parents/Grandparents that need cute toys

Baby accessories and toys that won't make your space look like a rainbow exploded over your nice stuff.

Babies: cute, cuddly and notorious for filling their parents’ homes with with gaudy toys and unsightly apparatuses. But you don’t have resign yourself to this hard plastic future! To prove it, our San Francisco Head of Expansion (and cool mom) Janette Crawford took some of our favorite projects and found some amazing baby stuff that let the spaces keep their great Homepolish style. Here’s part three!

I love my home. So when I had a baby on the way, I was afraid of it becoming an obstacle course of bright plastic toys that sing. With my heart set on avoiding this fate, I bought only baby goods that fit my existing well-curated design. And guess what? No plastic obstacle course! All my friends commented on how you could hardly tell that a baby had moved in…and that all my toys looked like they were made by elves.

To avoid baby-gear domination in the home of you or someone you love, keep two things in mind: A consistent color palette, and passing the test of “Would it look good in the living room?” Because everything eventually ends up in the living room. These filters will keep everything cohesive, as well as keep your baby motif from being too cutesy. Click through the slideshow to see how these baby furnishings came together for a hypothetical baby in one of our favorite LA homes.
