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.

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.

Butterfly Home Beauty

This trend just in: butterfly designs are all around us!

From our gardens to Nature Centers, they have invaded our homes in the form of dishes, fabrics, and other accessories. What a beautiful way to make spring linger longer and have summer stay…

I for one could not resist and added two silk embroidered butterfly pillows to my dining room banquette.

Christian Lacroix, the former designer for Dior, directed his talent to creating whimsical designs for the home and showered plates and fabrics with butterflies.

I marveled at the beautiful butterfly kissing my hydrangea trees and vowed to visit the garden center and pick some more butterfly loving plants.

Botanical gardens all over the country are celebrating butterflies by showering visitors with them at their greenhouses.  The beauty and lightness of butterflies bring grace and color into our homes.

During the colder months when grey is all around us, a splash of color can do wonders to uplift our moods. Think of the whimsical patterns of the butterfly fabrics in a throw pillow, a chair or cool art work on the wall.

(Coming Soon to PoshLiving)

Run to your craft store and stock up on decorative butterflies.  Have them make a surprise appearance on your tablescape. They make a great place card!
