What's on the floor......

As we wind down our retail footprint, it has been bittersweet. I am saddened to leave this space, but I am actually so excited about this new phase in my life. I have been overwhelmed by all the wonderful words from clients who have supported my business throughout the years. It’s been amazing and I hope to continue to work with all of you as I expand into other areas of the home. YESSSS!

We have sold so many floor model pieces already.  But I’ve got some really great pieces left. So I’ve updated the website & shot some videos featuring the best of the rest.

Watch Dana show off the best pieces.......

Great pieces, still remain!

From Newborns to Tweens - Redpath Reveals

As I expand my interior design practice beyond baby, this reveal could not have come at a better time. The Redpath family has been with me since 2006, the beginning of Daisy Baby!  3 kids & 4 Rooms later we are still designing together.  It's been so wonderful working with Renee all these years & watching the kids grow.

Retail No More........

After 12 years in business & 7 years on my own, I want to announce I am closing our retail store at the end of the year.  I will be migrating and moving my office to my home in Bethesda. I realize that I do not need a retail footprint in today’s market to do what I love doing. I will be maintaining relationships with many of my furniture vendors & taking new orders. I hope to really build my interior design business for the whole home. My email & number will remain the same. Wish me luck. 

Come Raise a Glass with me..........

I will be keeping the Prosecco on Ice!

Design Studio Dreaming

The place where I design is the most important part of our studio. So it’s gotta allow for a conducive work environment & great design space. These days, when someone enters the studio, I want them to see right away that we are a hybrid of a design firm & a children's furniture showroom. I want the design area to make a STATEMENT!

Hanging in the Hamptons

Hanging in the Hamptons

They say keep your friends close, but keep your friends with houses in the Hamptons closer. I wish I could say that is the basis for my flourishing friendship with Caren Karpik of Bebe Chic Bedding. Honestly, it really developed naturally from hours spent on the phone reviewing orders and collaborating on designs. And now she is one of my closest friends & deepest confidant. #phonebuddies

Yet, I would have never thought an invitation for me & my hubby with our cute little baby girl would turn into a Mother in law, Sister in law & 2 more babies. But Caren & Henry welcomed us all with open arms. Their son Adam, claims, "It's tradition now." For the last 5 years, my family packs up the SUV with Thule on top & drives up to Quogue, NY to the "Hamptons." My eldest, Ever, will say "Summers are spent at Adam's house." It's become something we look forward to every year. It's so great to see the kids grow up together.

If you didn't know, I am a little Nerdy. And my current obsession is learning about American Architectural Styles.  So while swimming & beaching in the Hamptons, I was drooling over & studying all the beautiful Quogue homes. I just want to share a small sampling of a few houses I loved! Or could get out & take non-stalking pictures of:) 

Seriously, my bedside Reading:)

Seriously, my bedside Reading:)

Dutch Colonial & Shingle Style Homes

Dutch Colonial is a style of domestic architecture, primarily characterized by gambrel roofs having curved eaves along the length of the house, many resembling a barn in construction.

The Shingle style is an American architectural style made popular in Newport, Rhode Island and the village of East Hampton on the southeastern tip of Long Island. Shingle-style houses often are colonial with use of shingles with single, large roofs, such as a gambrel or hip roof..

Seamless Shopping

This year I have been laser focused on developing and sharing with you my passion for design. Behind the scenes, I've also been hard at work improving my website to create a seamless shopping experience for my clients. I love it when clients come into the studio and we get a chance to show them all that what we have to offer. However, in our digital age, I wanted to give our clients the flexibility to leave our studio, visit our website, and continue their design process at home, including finalizing their purchase. To that end, I want to introduce you to our new integrated shopping experience!


Shop Directly Online 


Shop how you want.....When you want!

Our website now includes most of the products that we offer in our studio, including custom selections. A client recently shared her shopping experience, "I came into the studio to try out the Babyletto Kiwi Glider. Then, once we made up our minds, we went to your website and put it in our cart. Easy!"

This is the seamless shopping we now offer our clients -- and, we will even email you the items you looked at in our studio so that you can complete your purchase at your convenience.

Here's a sample email:

Best Baby Stores in DC

OK, I know in this online world, who doesn't like to have boxes delivered right to them next day or even same day.  So many people want to support small local businesses.  I do realize it may be a little out of your way or cost $2 more but there are so many independent business owners out there working hard to provide customers with an amazing shopping experience.  So if you want to get out & shop in person, here is a list of the best independent baby stores in the tri-state area:

Hi Beckett, Hi Langford, Hi Darlington

I love it when we get new floor models in the studio. It's like Christmas every time!  It just brings me so much joy,  especially when I see that the new collections from Franklin & Ben and Million Dollar Baby are super cute.  I think they have done a really nice job at such a great price. The styles & looks are exactly what's  HOT & on trend right now.  Brass pulls, upholstered headboards & wood grain textures are all on point.           


We welcome the newest collections from:

Got Diapers???

Has your baby outgrown those newborn diapers? What about size 1's, 2's, 3's? Any Pull-Ups hiding about? You may not know but Everly and Monet is a DC Diaper Bank drop off spot. I never realized how many families are in need of diapers.

24 Hours in Baltimore

So I'm a California Girl.  Although I've been in DC for 15 years now, there are still so many local places I haven't been to & so much I haven’t seen. Thus, when my girlfriend came to town, we escaped to B-more for a quick 24 hours

What's on your Walls???

I am so thrilled to be out doing more installations in client’s homes of their furniture, bedding & window treatments.  It is so pretty to see it all come together. However, I am also realizing I want to leave them with beautiful art on their walls.

The Everly & Monet Experience

I was finishing up a consult with a new client the other day & as she was getting ready to leave she turned around & said that she was amazed at the large variety of vendors that we carried. She also never realized that there was someone who could help her navigate through this overwhelming baby process.

How much does it all cost?

How much does it all cost?

How much does all this actually cost? I get asked this question every day. And honestly the 1st question in design should be what is your budget?  Well you can't build a budget if you don't know how much nursery furniture costs.

I can't believe it is the 4th year that Big City Moms will be hosting the "BIGGEST BABY SHOWER" here is DC. I will look for any reason to get down to Georgetown. If you just had a baby or getting ready to have one, this is the hottest ticket in town.

Nursery Reveal- Not Finding Out

So earlier this year I made that final move with Everly & Monet and decided to implement my design services with the fee attached. I'll be honest in that it was pretty freaking scary. Of course I’ve have been doing design all these years, but charging was taking it to the next level. And I’ve always had a lot of fear around that. Would peopIe actually want to hire me for those services.

4 Hot Trends in Desks

When I sit down with parents to design a big kids room, I often ask them if they've thought about a desk. They often look at me like I'm crazy --this is a 2 year old we are talking about. But "if kindergarten is the new 1st grade" your little one may be doing homework before you know it. If you gotta buy a desk, it better be cute.

The Story Behind The Name

It all started when Ever arrived. I have been helping moms & moms-to-be since 2005, way before I became a mother.  I already loved being a designer with little ones in mind, but I didn’t know what it actually took to bring a new life into the world.
