Hip Hop Nursery
No matter what I do in this life, one of my claim to fames will be the successful, happy union of my friends Melissa and Keller. I met Melissa day one freshmen year of college (we bonded over hysterically crying that our parents left… cause that’s normal). Zach and Keller grew up together. And the future spouses met at our wedding. Of course, I can’t really take credit for it as they made it happen. But is that going to stop me? No.
Seven months ago, they had twin girls. And, not surprisingly, given my seriously stylish friend, their nursery is beyond. But it’s not the quality pieces that set it apart, it’s the personality perfectly reflecting the couple, which is what every great room and home should do. They’re such fun, relaxed people (and parents!) with a love for some lyrics and hip hop music. And why shouldn’t that be reflected in a nursery? Who says it has to be all baby? I can tell you one thing: These are going to be some seriously cool kids.
Speaking of, the only thing cooler than their nursery is the names of the babes that inhabit it: Carlin Tate and Camden Ray. And don’t get me started on how adorable they are. The most ridiculously attractive children ever. They put the Gerber baby to shame. And there’s two of them. Double the cuteness. Below, a look at their lovely room…
