With a passion for kid-friendly style and the unexpected, interior designer and children’s clothing designer Molly Payne has channeled her creativity with daughter Ayla’s nursery. The owner of Zeal Interiors and co-owner of A.Bird, a higher-end children’s clothing collection making its debut this fall, Molly has created a relaxing sanctuary for her family.

Residing in St. Augustine, FL, Molly designed Ayla’s nursery to have an organic modern design using natural, simple materials. With a hand-carved bird mobile (Ayla’s nickname is Bird) and a 200 year-old heart peck cypress wood crib made by Molly’s husband, the minimalist nursery reflects Molly’s design aesthetic.

Together with friend Patricia Cammereri, also a mother to a young daughter, the two women created the whimsical collection A.Bird. Set to hit stores this July, the classic, quality keepsake collection features sophisticated pieces with an edgy modern twist.

Molly’s design principles are evident in the mix-and-match pleated frocks, smock tops, leggings, ruffle pants, and bloomers in muted cream, grey, and eggshell blue hues. Styles come in sizes 12 months to 6T for boys and girls, and will be available to pre-order at www.zealbaby.com.

Molly is available for expert nursery design tips, and additional images of Ayla’s nursery and the A.Bird collection are readily available.
