Domino - - ON THE COVER -

When we learned that Emily Cur­rent and Meritt El­liott—the dy­namic duo be­hind Emily + Meritt—were de­sign­ing the rooms of Jes­sica Alba’s two daugh­ters with items from their new Pbteen col­lec­tion, we knew that the spa­ces’ soft tex­tures and play­ful ac­cents would form an at­mo­spheric back­drop for the cover of our win­ter is­sue. Plus, given the rare op­por­tu­nity to pho­to­graph Alba—a quin­tes­sen­tial domino woman and mul­ti­tal­ented bomb­shell—with Honor, 7, Haven, 4, and her friends Cur­rent and El­liott in her Los An­ge­les home, it be­came crys­tal clear that we would fall in love with our win­ter cover.

Want­ing to cre­ate per­sonal sur­round­ings where Alba’s daugh­ters could play, learn, and dream, Cur­rent and El­liott suc­cess­fully trans­lated their vi­sion into “big-girl rooms.” Both mother and daugh­ters feel cozy in the el­e­gant spa­ces with color pal­ettes and fur­nish­ings that are both re­fined and youth­ful—per­fect for cre­ative young women of any age. “What I love about us­ing this col­lec­tion in the girls’ rooms is that the pieces are fun and whim­si­cal but still so­phis­ti­cated,” says Alba. “It con­nects with the girls’ style and it ap­peals to my sen­si­bil­ity, too.”
