For someone unfamiliar with the culture of Project Nursery, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Project Nursery is the ultimate children’s design resource. Our mission is to inspire kid-friendly design—from baby’s nursery and play spaces, to gender reveal parties and first birthday celebrations! We know that the nursery is the just first project of many when it comes to starting a family, and we want to make the decorating process a whole lot easier and a lot more fun. Our community of readers, both parents and designers, upload photos of their own nursery projects to share creativity, design ideas, and advice.
What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
Project Nursery started out as a simple blog back in 2008 as a way to share our design ideas for the nursery, since nursery decor resources were very limited then. Over the years, we have added many layers and are now a comprehensive design resource for parents embarking on their own nursery projects. Our team of design experts share ideas and solutions on the blog; our robust project gallery showcases thousands of images from our community; our vendor guide helps parents navigate brands, and our curated offering in our shop can help complete the nursery of your dreams.

Project Nursery’s Wi-Fi-enabled dual-mode monitor will also be available next month.
What sets Project Nursery apart from other nursery companies?
Hands down, our community! We always say that Project Nursery is a happy place, and it really is. Parents work really hard on creating safe and beautiful spaces for their children, and we love that Project Nursery is a platform to show off their hard work.
What can parents expect from Project Nursery at the New York Baby Show?
Parents at the New York Baby Show can expect a one-stop shop for all of their consumer electronics needs both personally and for the nursery. Project Nursery’s collection of baby monitors has something for everyone and are easy to customize with a variety of additional cameras that can be paired with the parent units (up to four cameras can be paired to each monitor). The new Wi-Fi-enabled monitor will speak to the more techie parents, whereas the budget-friendly 4.3” monitor is perfect for those just starting out.
Parents looking for a fitness and baby tracking solution will love the Parent + Baby SmartBand, which logs everything from fetal kicks to diaper changes, feedings and more. It also tracks moms’ weight, water intake, steps taken and more. And once mom is done having kids, simply turn off the baby-related features, and you’re left with a fully functional fitness tracker!
