I know I need to Blog of what I am designing today and believe me I am designing today , but I really want to take the time to reflect on my first and only job ever in the USA, as a “Bellini Girl” the girls , in today terms the “Bellini ladies”~ you see, I came to the USA with a dream to “make it” all the way from Israel so I can become the images of the TV shows I was watching at a time as a kid, the power of TV who says TV is bad for you? Not for me! It was great the “juice” that drove me to move to the USA, with a dream started as a sale person with a lot of pride as I was so thankful for the job at the time ~ I moved up to store manager, designing, helping with colors and shape of furniture. I then began to help with opening of more and more Bellini stores across the United States, the time was so right and what a great idea it was, and still is!

The Bedding part was such a fun part of what I was doing and I need to thank one lady, who came in with a pillow that she needed to match bedding for. I went after work to look for fabrics for her, called around to my Israeli friends, and found a lady who could sew for us. At the time the colors were gray and peach. The furniture that Bellini was featuring was gray and white. Wow!! What a set it was!! We called it “Gray Tulip” what a silly name ~smiling ~ but it was a hit and since then I have found my calling….. Nava’s Designs… My love for fabrics, trims colors and “new messages” was my drive~ The early days of Bellini ~27 years ago was about the concept to give mothers-to-be the best of the best in shopping for their baby in one stop ~ I think with all the changes that have occurred in the baby industry in the past 27 years Bellini and Nava’s Designs continue on with our heads held high since I started with them in the 1980’s. There I am so happy to have my Bellini history and to be a customer bedding designer who was “born” at Bellini. When you have good people around you, good things happen, good ideas develop and memories are forever ~ now I am going to design a Gray and white set ~yes everything come back full circle if you give it enough time~smiling

    Dear Nava,

    I am so honored to tell you I have 3 sets of your bedding all that I purchased at Bellini.
    The set that I hold closest to my heart is my 1st babies set Alexandra (I purchased in the Great Neck Store) With the help of Belinni they were able to contact you and you were kind enough to make me matching pillows and curtains to complete the look…

    I will forever cherish this set and all of my sets and will pass it down to my children that maybe they can use for ther children….

    Who know Nava I may be looking for a 4th set one day… :) Nava Bedding will be my only option… thanks for your taste in fabic and construction… theres nothing else like your bedding.

    xoxo
