Before Christmas I did a newborn session for Daisy and her sweet little daughter, who had just arrived into this world. I had never met Daisy before but I had heard about her because of the recent opening of her new kids store Baby Bottega, which was on my list of places to write about for the blog.
So when I returned from Copenhagen after New Year I paid a visit to Daisy in the shop in order to take some photos and to see the place with my own eyes.
It was amazing.
Baby Bottega is the shop we have been missing for a long time in Florence (and probably in several other Italian cities). In here you can find the most beautiful and cool Nordic inspired design and toys for kids. Lots of sweet pastel colors and interiors which you would actually consider for your own room. Wallpapers, lamps, furniture, pillows, cute storage solutions (forget about the traditional Ikea stuff), blankets, children's books, bicycles in wood… Oh, and cool diaper bags which look nothing like a diaper bag but more like a designer bag, children's clothes, maternity wear… I could go on.
Baby Bottega has all the great labels, many of which you don't find in other places. These are among others Storksak, Klippan, Giokit, Bla bla, Aden+Anais and many many more.
Daisy is originally from Miami with Cuban, Spanish and Lebanese roots. She has been working within interior design for several years before opening Baby Bottega and she is a mother of three children. In other words the perfect background for providing us Florentine moms with cool design for our kids!
