Tamera Mowry-Housley’s Sweet Baby Shower!

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago, I celebrated the upcoming arrival of Tamera and Adam Housley’s daughter at their “Pretty in Pink” baby shower, held at the Casa del Mar Hotel in Malibu. It was beautiful! I was greeted with such love and warmth, as all her closest friends and family gathered to celebrate such a special occasion. They hired the talented Mindy Weiss to create the sweetest girly environment. Everything was perfect, from the flowers to the favors, and of course the glowing mommy couldn’t have been more radiant.

Be sure to pick up this weeks US Weekly magazine for the entire scoop and visit Tamera’s website for more pinterest worthy photos. I was able to capture a few images of my own and I thought I would share.

Enjoy, Shalena

Lighting for your Nursery or Child’s Room

I hope everyone had an amazing Easter!

The one single item that I would say you need to make your nursery, child’s room or playroom fabulous is a chandelier!! As you’ll see from my photos below, chandeliers are available in many different shapes and sizes. These range from $338 to $2250, but the price all depends on how custom you want your lighting to be. Whatever you do, promise to keep it fun and whimsical!

Three of the four chandeliers below are in the homes of my celebrity clients. Can you guess which ones?

Oh and before I sign off, don’t forget to checkout the 3 Arm Pear Chandelier that’s under $200.

Enjoy the Spring season!




Tamera Napa Nursery Chandelier

I love designing custom nursery and kids bedding!


Oohhh lala…


I got an updated bedding book today from Bella Notte! I love working with their unique fabrics in my nursery and kids rooms. My clients love this line so much that we also order it for their master bedrooms. Velvets, satins, laces, linens, and silks… Putting all the different textures together and designing something special for my clients is the best part of my job! Adding buttons, bows, quilting, ruffles, layers, embroidery… sky is the limit for what you can create for your dream room!





I selected the Bella Notte Chesapeake crib bedding in my latest celebrity nursery for Tamera Mowry-Housely. 

Contact us for an in-home design consultation so you can touch and feel the latest and greatest fabrics for your home! I must end this blog with more comfy bedding pics for you to fall in love with!

Tamera Mowry’s Angels in the Outfield Nursery- Get the Look!

Visit Gaga Designs to see products featured in both Tamera’s Napa Valley and Los Angeles Nursery!

Yours truly was on the Tia & Tamera show last night designing my latest celebrity nursery that I titled, Angels in the Outfield! If you missed it check your TV guide listing for the episode titled, “Tussle and Flow” on Style Network.

Also check out the article on Mystyle.com, Design Home Run! Shalena Smith on Tamera’s Vintage Baseball Nursery to get all the scoop on the vintage baseball-themed nursery in the L.A. condo.

The look and feel of this nursery was accomplished by using one of the best bedding companies in the business, Bella Notte Linens! I wanted the room to be soft and angelic so I worked with David to create a sky mural and the baseball chandelier gave it the finishing touch! This room was created with LOVE, as all my nurseries are because I truly love what I do! The nursery wouldn’t be completed without the comfy Angel Song glider and custom American-made furniture that is built to grow up with baby Aden.

I’ll post more pictures of the room in the near future. I just didn’t want to keep you waiting on the product details.

God bless you!!

Get the Look: Tamera Mowry-Housley & Adam Housley’s Designer Nursery

First I want to say congratulations to Tamera and Adam on their first born son Aden! The minute Tamera texted me a picture of Aden I was so thankful that he finally arrived safely into our world. A few days later I saw him smiling and laying in his crib that we installed and I felt so blessed to have been the designer that Adam and Tamera chose to create their dream nursery. All the hard work really pays off when it’s reward is a healthy baby and happy family!!

Many of you have been calling and e-mailing us about how to get the look of Tamera’s Napa Valley nursery, so I decided to write this blog. Be sure to tune into The Tia & Tamera show Tuesday, Dec. 4 to see myself, Shalena Smith, reveal the never before seen Los Angeles Celebrity Baby Nursery.

When Tamera hired me, her wish was for her sons nursery to look comfortable and personalized. I had an amazing interview with sweet Danielle Datu over at MyStyle about the fun personal details of designing the Napa Valley Nursery. Check it out when you can!

I love the star sconces and the chandelier on this side of the room. The other side of the room is just as beautiful with the striped wallpaper we installed and unique wall plaques. And of course the room wouldn’t be complete without this custom built-to-last changing table. We’re offering 20% off all the pieces Tamera used in her nursery to help you get the nursery of your dreams too! Use coupon code: BABY20 to receive your discount.

The sweet antique pieces that made this room come together are the items that the couple already had. I did, however, find a few cute additions to add.

I love how you can personalize these blocks to say anything that you want for only $8 a piece. And how this mobile ties in our whimsical star theme.




The most comfy spot in the room is this yummy chair and ottoman by Angel Song. The lovely and soft throw blanket is by one of my favorite brands Barefoot Dreams. As I write this blog I’m snuggled up in one of their amazing throw blankets 🙂

Watch Tia and Tamera’s show to see the reveal of her Napa Valley and Los Angeles nurseries that I had a blast designing! Tune in to The Style Network every Tuesday evening at 9 /8C to watch Tia & Tamera. I’ll be having a Tia & Tamera viewing party over the next few weeks! Any excuse for me to get together with my friends and family, it’s going to be so much fun! xo

HAPPY MOM-TO-BE by Moms&Babies at People.com

“To give her Napa Valley, Calif., nursery an intimate feel, PEOPLE blogger Tamera Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley enlisted celebrity designer Shalena Smith. And the decorator to the stars didn’t disappoint. Smith expertly blended the couple’s personal items with a vintage, Americana style to create a chic kids room the new family will enjoy forever.”

August was Tamera Mowry-Housley’s Month of Going Gaga!

The month of August was a really busy and exciting month for me. Where do I start?

It was jammed packed filled with new clients, production meetings, family vacation, our girls starting school, celebrated my youngest 9th birthday, two trips to Napa, Tamera Mowry-Housley’s baby shower, her completed Napa nursery, the exciting task of finishing her nursery in Los Angeles in 9 days and last by not least, taping on her number one show on Style Network, Tia and Tamera.

Tamera hired me as her interior designer for both her nurseries and as her baby concierge. I can’t share much because I don’t want to blow the reveal on the TV show but I must say that she’s been an absolute blessing to work with!

I hope you all had an amazing summer. Although it’s been busy for me, it’s been a time of reflection and change. What about you?

Please subscribe to my blog for more updates about my life of going gaga!

God bless you & enjoy these last days of summer!
