Two of our favorite superstar celebs just had babies. We thought it would be fun to imagine how Pink and Natalie Portman might decorate their nurseries if they drew inspiration from some of their latest work. Who knows? Maybe you will find some inspiration for your baby’s room here too!
To gather inspiration for baby Willow’s nursery we listened to some of her momma’s latest releases, including “Raise Your Glass.”We loved the fun, bubblegummy sound of this song and the strong positive message it sends, both of which made us think of Pink’s signature color. In coming up with this inspiration board we made sure to pick pieces that packed a punch, just like Willow’s momma. Since we knew we were going to be choosing a lot of bold accent pieces in no-nonsense hot pink, we went with a softer shade for the walls (1). The light pink allows pieces like the chandelier (3), poster (5) and picture frame (4) to really pop. Similarly, the big bow pillow (2) definitely conveyed the right kind of daring sensibilities and awesome bravado we wanted for Pink’s little girl. We chose the beautiful classic crib from Bonavita’s Peyton collection for little Willow to sleep in for its simple, clean lines (10). For the bedding and crib bumper we went with coordinating patterns that look good together but don’t match, to capture the playfulness of Pink’s songs (6,7,8). As a finishing touch we added a sassy poodle in a soft cheetah purse (9) that would look adorable hanging up when it wasn’t being cuddled.
Next we looked at Black Swan to find inspiration for a nursery for Natalie Portman’s new baby boy. Our Black Swan nursery is certainly not your traditional baby room!
The movie was darkly majestic, with intricate plot lines and an undercurrent of mystery. To replicate this in the nursery we wanted lots of detailed pieces in black and white that mixed the regal feel of classical ballet with the film’s modern and edgy aesthetic. The centerpiece of the nursery is the Sarah classic crib by Graco in a rich espresso color (5), which sets the tone for the rest of the room. The wall mirror (2) and Venetian mask (7) share scroll details. The block print pillow (1) and alphabet print poster (4) work similarly well together because of the strokes of the line work that switch from thick to thin. A tall floor lamp (10) with strong vertical lines makes a striking impression. We thought an all black room was a little too much, but we really loved the idea of a chalkboard paint accent wall where Natalie’s little boy could draw pictures and practice his letters (9). For the other three walls we chose a lively green (3) which allows the darker accents to really stand out.A small swan lamp (8) and a handmade birdie mobile (6) complete the room with little reminders of the design’s inspiration.
