"Every purchase is a special one because it is for a child." That's the motto of Firefly Furnishings. Firefly Furnishings is an absolute haven for parents looking for design inspiration. The Denver-based shop branched out to e-commerce making it easier for parents to decorate in style from coast to coast. When I shop here I love to check out the Get Inspired Section first. It offers amazing pictures of completed rooms and finishing accents. They recently featured a piece on plums and deep purples--I adore these rich, sophisticate hues.
If you are decorating the nursery, your task will be made easy thanks to the Baby Room section. Simply click on one of the choices and a custom designed nursery can be delivered to your door. For example, I love the Animal Dreams ($5,643). Before you faint. Consider this is the price FOR EVERYTHING! An heirloom quality crib, A changing dresser with removable changing table top, a slipped-covered glider, a appliqued 3 piece crib bedding with a parade of whimsical pastel animals, a light blue cotton shaggy raggy rug, a whimsical stretched canvas and a framed board with words sleep tight and dream and additional accessories such as frames, toys and bookends. Perfect for the busy executive mom.

Where do you find design inspiration?
Decorating a child'??s room is usually linked to an important milestone in a mother'??s or the child'??s life and it creates a lot of excitement. I just build on that excitement and from the creative ideas of parents.
I love bright colors and my favorite color right now is orange. It is a fun neutral color that brightens up a room and goes so well with so many other colors and works great for both boys and girls. It definitely makes a statement.
What is your pet peeve about decorating?
I love working with my clients! I spend lots of time getting to know them and their likes and dislikes - what colors, style and the look they want to create. My clients and I spend a lot of time finding just the perfect furniture, bedding, art, and accessories to complete a room and when we are done they are so excited about the space we have designed together. Then a client will bring in a well-meaning relative or friend to share in that excitement and we end up starting from scratch because the friend or family member has convinced my client that what they have chosen is not the perfect space for their child.
Personal style icon?
My personal style icon is Sarah Jessica Parker. She is not afraid to express herself and can be daring at times. You can just tell she has fun with fashion and style.
My brand philosophy is all about client service, quality and having fun. That'??s why I chose to open a children'??s furnishings store. I think a child'??s room is one place where you can be super creative and think out-side of the box. It'??s a room that doesn'??t need to '??flow'? with the rest of the house but deserves to be decorated using the same high quality standards used to decorate other rooms in a home.
What brand/item are you crazy about?
I love a new bedding line we recently started to carry called Whistle & Wink. It is so whimsical and fun! The quality and the details are incredible. The fabrics are beautiful and all the pieces have hand quilting or appliquÃ©s. It is amazing when a line of such quality is affordably priced!
Favorite bedtime book at your house?
Currently our favorite is Diary of a Wimpy Kid. My 7 year old loves this series of books. With all the negatives going on in the world right now, it is great to just take the time to laugh with your children. My all time favorite bedtime story is the classic Goodnight Moon--I have read it over and over to all four of my children!
