Vanessa Antonelli, a New Jersey-based designer with an extensive roster of celebrity clients, was tapped recently by Spy Kids alum Alexa PenaVega and her husband Carlos to design their new baby’s nursery.

Swing Into Summer with Versatile Swing-Arm Wall Sconces
With the advent of warmer weather and the outdoor activities that now beckon, I still find myself indoors tackling the spring cleaning. And not just the cleaning but the decluttering. The nightstand is one spot that tends to attract an incredible amount of clutter with books, the lamp, a tea cup, charging station, and more.
