Home Made Simple Preview: Nursing the Nursery to Life!

Expecting designer Julie Khuu puts her baby-fever style to work on the Robles family’s bare nursery.

Sam and Karina struggled for years to conceive, until their friend Lori stepped in as a surrogate to give them the gift of parenthood. After their baby, Mila, was born, Sam and Karina moved into a bigger home. Fueled by their passion for midcentury style, they’ve finished all the rooms in their home — except for Mila’s nursery.


The Robles need a designer’s touch to transform the storage-less, dim nursery into a trendy, organized haven for their milagro, or “miracle” in Spanish. Laila Ali leads the Home Made Simple team with the help of designer Julie Khuu and carpenter James Worsham to create an ideal nursery for the growing family.
