It truly was love at first click. This amazing website allows you to design your own crib sets and accessories from a collection of gorgeous fabrics at really affordable prices. Their online crib configurator is like no other... I could spend hours online designing different crib sets!
So I did the normal thing I do when I find a cool website I want to remember... I add it to my "favorites" and I sign up for their email newsletters and updates. (It's for this reason that my inbox is constantly overflowing with emails from a gazillion different retailers.) Fast forward to early 2009 and I receive one of their emails, but this wasn't the usual newsletter. Javis Davis was on the hunt for design partners. When I read the description of the kind of person they were looking for, I knew it fit me completely. My heart skipped a beat...
I had always thought of getting into nursery styling and design at some point. I knew I had the talent and the desire, but where in the world would I start? Of one thing I was sure... I absolutely adored baby rooms. A nursery is truly a magical little utopia of a space that can be anything you want it to be. It's the one room where you can really feel free to deviate from the décor that consumes the rest of your home and have some real fun. And a nursery is one of the few rooms with a specific purpose... an immediate need... a must-do project. You've got to make room, so why not make it fabulous?
And the people at Javis Davis seem to really get this concept. Their take on baby and kids' bedding is so different from the cookie cutter collections you come across in the big name stores. Moms are able to put something together that expresses their own individuality and style. So, as you can imagine, this unexpected opportunity in my inbox to partner with this great company really got my wheels turning. I spent a good two hours at home on a Friday night filling out the application. A couple of weeks later, I was on the phone with the owner and creator of Javis Davis. She was thrilled with what I had to offer, and I was ecstatic to be accepted as the design partner for Atlanta!
As a design partner with Javis Davis, I'm able to bring the incredible offerings of the website to real life. I've got all the fabrics on hand, along with samples of the different products for you to touch and feel. As advanced as the company's website technology is, there's still nothing like seeing the different fabrics in person. Admittedly, a few of the collections online that I thought were just OK became some of my favorites once I got my hands on them in person! Being able to see them all up close and personal in the comfort of your own home is a great advantage. A lot of moms have a vision of what they want in a nursery, but others have no idea where to begin... either way, I'm your girl.
I'm looking forward to working with moms and moms-to-be all over the city of Atlanta and beyond. You're certainly welcome to contact me from wherever you are and we can work together over the phone! But a lot of the fun will come from getting to see people's spaces in person and helping them bring a dream nursery to life... whether it's through bedding alone or from top to bottom, wall to wall. So let's get to it, mommas! Make room!
