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.

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.

Kerry Washington’s Wondrous Woodland Nursery

As soon as rumors began circling that the beautiful Kerry Washington was pregnant, our designers were inspired to create the perfect nursery for her little one on the way. Washington secretly married NFL corner back Nnamdi Asomugha back in June and pregnancy rumors surfaced in October. Since she finally debuted her baby bump Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards, we figured it was time to debut our design.

So how do you create a design for 2013’s Best Dressed Woman (as named by PEOPLE)? We started with an inspiration board based on trends in her impeccable fashion style. Some of our favorite looks are light neutrals with metallic accents and touches of nature, such as floral and leaf prints.

Since the nursery design needed to be gender neutral, these dresses became the perfect inspiration! We decided on a woodland nursery to embrace the beauty of nature and its neutral hues. Adding metallic accents gave the design some sparkly and fun dimension.

Kerry’s taste in home design was also very important in our nursery design as we wanted it to match her style of décor. The pictures above reflect the earth-friendly makeover done on her West Hollywood apartment by Danny Seo in 2009. He catered to her love for eco-friendly design.

From our glimpse inside her home, we learned that she has modern taste and a love for nature. The designs incorporate very neutral basics (furniture, cabinets, and bedspread) with exciting pops of color and pattern throughout. This inspired our use of Poppy as an accent color in the bedding, canvas art, and wallpaper!

When designing a gender neutral nursery, nature can be a wonderful muse because of its simplistic beauty. For an accent, try to choose a color that isn’t always gender specific – orange, green, light blue, silver, gold, brown, etc.

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.

The Western Vintage Way

Whether you’re decorating a nursery, living room, or the whole house, designing with the Western Vintage way will bring a warm feeling to your space. Mix weathered and vintage looking furnishings with earthy tones, Aztec-inspired patterns, and a touch of western décor to achieve this rising style trend in interior design.

Our designers have put together Western Vintage looks for both you and baby, so you can be at home on the range no matter where you live. Are you a fan of this style or do you think it should stay in the “Old West?”

 Western Vintage Living Room from PoshLiving

Add eclectic flare to your home with these Western Vintage inspired favorites from PoshLiving. Using a geometric designed rug with bold bright colors brings visual interest to this living space.

Mixing in soft fabrics with the leather sofa softens the room, while the weathered case pieces make the room feel rustic.  Unique lighting and traditional art are the finishing touches needed to make this room complete.

 Western Vintage Nursery by PoshTots

We adopted this version of the typical kid-inspired cowboy themed room and gave it a little bit of sophistication.

Starting with a palette of neutral earthy shades, subtle hints of the Wild West adorn this nursery. Accents of vintage-inspired furnishings and accessories are just enough to create this eclectic mix.

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.

Keep Calm with Oilo Neutrals

When it comes to selecting a color palette for your nursery, going neutral may seem boring, but it’s quite the opposite. Take a look at this beautiful nursery design that was inspired by Oilo. Their beautiful baby bedding shown in taupe is simple and modern.

Start with a clean-lined contemporary crib, add a combination of soft textures, patterns and warm wood tones. The result is serene , calming and sophisticated.
