Sesame Street has Gone Couture!

I honestly, truly fear the day my daughter asks me buy an Elmo, Zoe, or Cookie Monster shirt. Thanks to Morf, this fearful day will be much easier to face with their recycled, modern, and artistic approach to our favorite characters. You will, however, pay the couture price of $68. Well worth it is my opinion! :)

Pink or Purple?

This is beautiful, modern crib bedding from Land of Nod at a fabulous price! The different damask, polka dot, and basket weave patterns give interest and style while keeping the room clean and elegant. You could pair either the pink or purple color way with you choice of furniture finish- white, dark, medium, or light wood, and even black!

Small Space, Small Baby

The challenge of this project was space. As families grow, space can be quite an issue. This one bedroom condo needed to be re-designed to fit a small baby into this small space.

My client loves black and white. With their bedroom textiles in black and white, they wanted their baby girls "wall" to tie into the bedroom yet still be full of color. I accomplished this look by painting the baby's "wall" green and a very light pink with black furniture. The crib bedding is in a modern flower pattern in white, pink, and green. To tie the entire room together, I added green pillows and a throw to the queen size bed. It turned out beautiful!

Black, White, & Yellow Nursery

A modern approach to a new baby's nursery. A little paint can go a long way. The black and white stripped ceiling creates a dramatic impact on a very affordable budget. By keeping the furniture a neutral color, the walls can be bright and bold colors.

Mason Gray's Children's Furniture

WOW! It was love at first sight. I love, love, love New York based DucDuc, but their new line, Mason Gray, is absolutely modern chic. These traditional pieces have elements from different eras, yet the pops of color screams modern. Gray's furniture is available in a variety of unique, fun colors- navy, chili, kelly green, purple, pink, and mink to name a few.

About the Owner of Modern Chic Tots

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Morgann Perry and I am thrilled to share my design inspirations and services with you. Since the young age of eleven, I have fostered a passion for design. When selecting a college, having a quality Interior Design program was my most important criteria. I attended San Diego State University and graduated with a BA in Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Interior Design.

After graduating in 2004, I was employed by two award winning model home companies located in Orange County, CA. I was provided with opportunities to design creative, fresh, and aesthetic interiors for home builders throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado.

After five years in the model home industry, it was time to follow my dream of forming my own company. Thus, Modern Chic Tots was born.

Modern Chic Tots Home

Modern Chic Tots believes every child deserves a special space to call their own. It is my passion to create fashionable, functional, and fun rooms for children of all ages. Whether you are expecting a new baby, transitioning from a baby to child's room, or creating a chic space for your teenager, the room will be custom designed for you and your child!

Modern Chic Tots offers a new, alternative interior design service, e-design. MCT's creative e-designs inspire clients nationwide in designing their dream room. Through a storyboard and direct website links, all the materials are at your finger tips to accomplish your room on an affordable budget.

Modern Chic Tots looks forward to creating a modern, chic room for your little one!
