The Scoop on Tori Spelling's Modern Nursery

We've gotten a bunch of questions on Tori Spelling's nursery for her son Liam so here's the details...

Tori and husband Dean McDermott wanted to design a nursery that fits their modern tastes. To help them design the nursery, they turned to the online boutique Nursery Couture.

"Because Tori and Dean (McDermott, her husband) are ultra-modern, funky people, they wanted to stick with the same theme for their nursery," Spelling's designer Katy Mimari says.

Nursery Couture helped the couple design a parent-friendly, design-conscious nursery.

Tori had some specific requests for her nursery. She wanted a brown, blue, and lime color scheme filled with modern furniture, darkwood, and bubble motifs. The biggest request was the inclusion of a zebra rug by Jonathan Adler she already owned from her LA home.

"She previously purchased it," Mimari says. "She said, 'I know I want a modern nursery. I know I want to use Caden Lane bedding. But I'm in love with this rug, and I don't know how it's going to work.'"

The rug fits the modern styled nursery perfectly And yet it fit perfectly with the ultra-modern Aerial Crib by Nurseryworks and matching changing table with the white-on-white circle designs, as well as the mini library by Oeuf.

"The library has all these cubbies, so it was a fun place to put little accents like picture frames and stacks of blankets," Mimari says. "It made it a little more eclectic, which is cool, because it opens the door to more mommies who maybe aren't in the mix of things in New York or L.A. to go, 'Well, maybe I can be more modern and not have it stand out from the rest of my home.' "
