This 1,250-square-foot bungalow-turned-boutique sits along the row of popular West Lovers decor and clothing shops. (Look for the brightly painted coral door.) Owners—and moms—Mia Brous, Kerri Goldfarb, and Louise Marsh have backgrounds in interior design and specialize in traditional nurseries and kids’ rooms with a Palm Beach-inspired twist. The trio offers full-service design, utilizing their selection of designer fabrics, custom headboards, cribs, and rugs. Or you can shop the store for furniture, art, and accessories from lines such as Legacy Linens, Sweet William, and Pehr. Don’t miss the Little Bean shop-in-shop, where you can score cute kids wares, birthday gifts, and nap mats. 4715 W. Lovers Ln., 214-577-4077.

Night & Day
Do you think of your little prince or princess as the American answer to George and Charlotte? If so, look to Jennifer Howell, who offers a nursery-design service through her children’s clothing store, Hip Hip Hooray! Much like the bubbles and Jon Jons that hang on the racks, Jennifer’s interior-design mindset is timeless. Schedule an at-home or in-store appointment to talk about your design dreams. Jennifer will help you choose everything from rockers and Moses baskets to bedding and curtains. Though the store carries AFK and Duk Duk cribs as well as Lulu Smith bedding, most of Jennifer’s designs are custom. 6816 Snider Plaza. 214-369-2788.
