Picking your perfect Petunia print can be quite the challenge. With all the different materials, patterns, and color schemes, it may be hard to narrow it down to your number one choice. One thing to decide is whether you want a trendy bright print to stand out perfectly during Spring and Summer or if a classy neutral print is best to pair with every outfit and stand the test of time. You really can’t go wrong with any style of Petunia prints.

Oh My Deer: Designing a Neutral Nursery

So you’re designing a nursery for your baby-to-be, but plan to keep their gender a surprise. Or maybe you want to have kids close in age and need the nursery to work for either a boy or girl. Whatever the reason, don’t feel the need to go bland when designing a gender-neutral nursery; it can be beautiful and exciting!

Don’t be afraid that your baby’s nursery won’t feel personalized because of its neutrality. All it takes is the right inspiration! Since your little one will be a combination of you and your partner, you may want to use some of your common interests to influence your design direction. Whether you are nature lovers, athletes, world travelers, techies, or have a favorite animal, don’t hesitate to incorporate your own love into this oh-so special space.

*These are currently only available to order by phone.

Our “Oh My Deer” design was inspired by a couple who built a house out in the woods with lots of large windows because they loved to watch the animals as they were meant to be in nature. The nursery focuses on the serenity of deer in their natural habitat, which is enhanced by a calming color scheme. Pulling the design inspiration from something the couple enjoys together gives the room a very personal feel. What interests would you and your partner incorporate?

Many people think they should stray from using too much color if the nursery is gender neutral. We’re here to tell you to find that perfect color and run with it! Going with a very specific and interesting hue helps to keep it unisex. While blue is usually thought to be boy-specific, we went with an elegant lighter shade to keep it in the middle. Grays are a great neutral that work well with an array of colors.

Making His Nursery Masculine

We can all agree that babies are cute as can be, but does that automatically mean a nursery must be cutesy and playful as well? When designing a nursery for a baby boy, many parents struggle between going all out cute or making it masculine.

The cute stuff is easy to find, but getting the perfect masculine look isn’t always as easy. Here are a few tips to help you pick out manly pieces for Mr. Baby-on-the-way:

Choose your wood wisely

If you want to go sleek and sophisticated with your masculine design, darker wood finishes are the way to go. Mahogany, espresso, and even black furniture pieces are the equivalent to a man’s classic suit.

Picturing your little man as more of a rugged outdoorsy type? Rustic unfinished woods and natural, glossless pieces will bring the feel of nature into your nursery. Try this incredible DIY to create the paneled accent wall pictured above!

Get rich with color, but play down the patterns

poshtots rugs

Fill your nursery with a sense of strength and power by incorporating deep, richer colors such as brick red, royal blue, emerald green, burgundy, navy blue, forest green, or charcoal gray. Lighter and brighter hues tend to give a cutesy vibe and can often appear feminine.

While fun prints enhance the design of children’s spaces, try to stick with simple patterns. Busy designs can be overpowering in a masculine design. Think of using different patterns the way a shirt and tie go together. Two strong colors and simple patterns can make for interesting design, but too much pattern can clash. Stripes, polka dots, and geometric patterns are easiest and often the best choice. Beware of prints that mix patterns, colors, and throw in random animals/symbols.

Create a strong sense of identity

So much thought goes into creating the name your son will embrace for the rest of his life. Celebrate his moniker to give him a strong identity from the very start. Whether you paint his name on the wall, hang wooden letters, or personalize his gear, the display will give a sense of strength and character. Avoid script fonts to maintain the masculine vibe.

We hope these little tips help you create the masculine nursery you have always dreamt of for your little man! Need some more tips or design help? Give our design consultants a call 1-866-767-4868

Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Start the New Year with its new favorite color!

Radiant Orchid is popping up left and right to take over 2014. Whether it is interior design, fashion, makeup, or art, the color of the year will be HOT! Why do we love Radiant Orchid? This hue is perfect for creating a warming space that sparks imagination. With its vibrant personality, Radiant Orchid has certainly sparked ours.

PoshTots Radiant Orchid

{Shop Radiant Orchid} – 1234 – 567

Since the release of the Pantone Color of the Year, we have found ourselves drawn to any and every piece that resembles the unique shade. Our imaginations run wild with bold design ideas after coming across an orchid rug, pillow, lamp, or simply a fabric.

They are calling it radiant for a reason. Whether it’s an accent wall, beautiful bedding, or simply a throw pillow, any touch of Radiant Orchid will liven up your space. Don’t be afraid to go bold! Start your space with a neutral palette of grays or beiges, then introduce a few exciting accents. That way, it will be fun and easy to switch things out if you find yourself a new favorite (2015 color of the Year?).

Pantone's Radiant Orchid

Radiant Orchid for Interiors – Pantone’s Vision

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.

A Modern Punk Nursery for Gwen Stefani

What kind of nursery would Rock Queen Gwen Stefani want for her baby on the way?  A rockin’ one of course! All of the items chosen for the nursery are inspired by Gwen Stefani’s awesome sense of style and punk personality.  From the days when she was “just a girl” singing in No Doubt to her more sophisticated style represented in her fashion line, L.A.M.B. each piece screams, “GWEN!”

gwen stefani nursery design

I always think of Gwen’s bright red lipstick in the 90’s which is why there are so many red accents seen throughout the nursery—specifically in the seat belt chair, dresser with brass handles, and the fabrics for the crib bumper and blanket. Although I have to say, my favorite red accent is the one in the black and white wallpaper which is cleverly called “Pucker Up, Butter Cup.”

The silver chain chandelier acts as a piece of “jewelry” in the room—it’s the finishing touch, just like a necklace can complete an outfit, so can a chandelier.  The houndstooth rug was a no brainer, since Gwen has been seen wearing houndstooth multiple times throughout her career.  As a designer, I knew this nursery had to be bold and edgy for such a modern mommy.

The Princess Palace Guide

Is your little girl a perfect princess? Then it’s time to make her feel like one! We’ve put together a guide to help you design the ultimate princess room.

How to Create the Perfect Palace for your Little Princess:

  1. Make it Pink! Little girls love pink and they’ll look so adorable surrounded by such a soft, feminine color.
  2. Personalize It.  This is her space, so add her name and initials wherever you can, this room is all about HER!
  3. Sparkle and Shine.  What princess doesn’t love a little glamour in her space? Use unique lighting or a gold leaf finish to add sparkle.
  4. Soften the room.  A princess is delicate and needs a soft place to rest her head. Choose luxurious linens for the bed with a soft shaggy raggy area rug to complete the room.
  5. Go Custom.  When everything just seems too “been there, done that” create a truly one-of-a-kind bedroom for your princess with a hand-painted mural and custom built furniture to match.

Posh Pantone Pick: Koi Designs

Fall is here and we’re feeling inspired! The Pantone Color Report for Fall 2013 has some beautiful selections that have every interior designer and fashion stylist buzzing with ideas. Our favorite Fall color is currently Koi!

Koi, “a decorative orange with dazzling and shimmering qualities, is a statement color that serves as a pick-me-up.” We’ve taken it in both directions: a brighter pop for an exciting gender neutral nursery and a soft serene bedroom for you.

In this gender neutral nursery, Koi takes center stage in bold dots and stripes, while accents with pale aqua and a hint of chocolate make for a chic color story. We selected Benjamin Moore’s Tamarind to be used as an accent color in this room with our hot air balloon wall covering.

As fall approaches, inspiration for the home can be found all around us, especially in nature.  Koi is the focal color for this sophisticated autumn-inspired bedroom. It’s then paired with leaf green and neutral beiges are used as coordinating accent colors to tie the whole room together.  Dark wood pieces and gold light fixtures add elegant contrast to this neutral palette.
