As a mother of three, designer Shea McGee knows a thing or two about creating a nursery that will last well beyond the toddler years—and even into the teenage stage. The key: timeless storage. An Instagram post in which McGee revealed a few of her top registry picks with Babylist has a permanent place in our Saved folder because she showed how her six-drawer Huxton dresser, a piece sold through the McGee & Co. shop, could easily live in a little one’s room, too. Who said kids’ spaces can only have mini furniture?
While it’s not the most budget find out there, at $2,900, the solid oak piece with soft-close drawers can hold everything from onesies and diaper covers to soccer jerseys and sweatshirts. In other words, it’s built to last, and we think it justifies the splurge. Take a page out of McGee’s fresh farmhouse book and top it off with a two-tone ceramic vase.
For an even more sustainable route, you can go vintage like California-based designer Caitlin Murray did in her son’s whimsical nursery. The old-world chest of drawers is just at home in the Carnival-themed space as it would be in a guest room. And in Paula Rallis’s Charleston home, a streamlined design doubles as a changing station, proving that black furniture can totally be baby-friendly, too.
