Baby? What Baby?


Back today with a guest post! Kaitlin Krull is a writer for Modernize a site that features contemporary home remodeling ideas and inspiration. I asked her to put together a post of her favorite solutions to avoid those typical eyesores (monstrous baby gear) that invade your hip home as soon as your baby has arrived. The Baby Bjorn Cradle featured above is a favorite of mine. When we were purchasing items for our to be born baby I thought it was too expensive, but I am still crushing on it. I love the clean aesthetic and sweet simple design. Continue reading to see Kaitlin's recommendations.

Even the cleverest tidier knows that some baby products cannot simply be hidden away in time for dinner parties. Larger items such as bouncers, beds, and high chairs are on permanent display, so if you’re worried about the aesthetic of these products, here are some of the best.

Phil&Teds Nest

The ingenious design of this ultra modern and chic travel cot is both functional and stylish. Use it in your living room as a bassinet or take it with you wherever you go for a high fashion sleeping space for baby.

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

This Scandinavian classic has been around for decades with very little change to the original design. This high chair is an essential buy for all new parents, because not only is it good looking (it comes in almost every color), it can also be used from birth until adulthood. Talk about getting more for your money.

Munchkin Loft Dark Wood Gate

Baby gates are the symbol of family houses. If you see a gate, a child lives there. Unfortunately, most of them are cheap looking, plastic, and most certainly do not match the interior of the house. This gate isn’t perfect, but it’s about as close as you are going to get with gates.

Charlie Crane Levo Baby Rocker

This baby rocker is so adorable everyone will want to have a snuggle in it. The modern design coupled with the high quality fabric disguise it in such a way that, sitting in the corner of the room, no one would guess it was a baby seat. Baby product perfection.

If you look hard enough, you will find that it is possible to keep a stylish home and a baby at the same time. That is, until you become the parent of a toddler, when all bets are off.

Thanks for sharing Kaitlin! This was a fun feature and eye opening to some of the options that exist. Most of all though, thank you for reminding me about the stokke high chair we have stored at my aunts house, a hand me down!
