We’ve Got the Look: Nate Berkus’s Nursery

Celebrity design couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent recently opened the doors of their Manhattan home to Architectural Digest, and it’s every bit as beautiful as you might imagine. One of the most enchanting rooms is the nursery of their daughter, Poppy. Done in soft grays and whites with metallic accents, the small space is chic and playful. If you like their style, we’ve got the look.

Start with a classic white crib. Nate and Jeremiah chose a Victorian-style spindle crib in timeless white, and our Linden Crib is a great match. Curved details give the bed some personality, but the simple style makes it a clean slate for choosing the rest of the room’s décor.

Adding texture as well as glamour is a white faux fur stool. In a small room, each piece stands out, and this soft furnishing provides a place for Poppy to sit or a place for the dads to put up their feet. For your room, our Dutchess White Faux Fur Stool would provide the same great benefits.

Tucked beneath a changing table is a mirrored storage piece. Not only does it provide space to organize Poppy’s clothing and gear; the mirrored sides make the room feel larger. Our Hudson Mirrored Chest would have the same result, and this glamorous piece will grow with your baby or blend into another room when no longer needed.

Finally, Nate and Jeremiah use a mixture of gold-leaf mirrors and framed artwork to dress up the nursery. Our Albany Gold Wall Mirror would be a good start. Then frame your favorite black and white prints, and create a gallery wall.

Six Nursery Trends for 2018

One of the most magical rooms in a home is a nursery. It’s where babies dream and grow, and imaginations are set free. Designing a nursery gives parents a chance to tap into their own dreams, too, and each year trends emerge to get you started. Project Nursery recently shared a list for 2018, and we’ve chosen some of our favorites.

The Color Purple.  Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year Ultra Violet has everyone reaching for purple, and lavender is its softer side. This royal color will make a statement. Use the color on walls, bedding or accents, like this mirror.

Spread Your Wings.Birds are a hot theme for nurseries, and the bigger the better. Look for flamingos, swans and peacocks, which bring color and whimsy.

Baby Boho.While Bohemian style has been a big trend in home design for a while, it’s going subtle in the nursery. Look for hanging plants and swings that add fun and texture to a space.

Pure and Simple.  Scandinavian-style furniture, like this crib, offers simple and sleek lines, which bring a sense of calm to a nursery—who doesn’t want that?

 

Just Keep Swimming.Feel like you’re in the tropics by inviting a school of fish into your nursery. Use them in wall décor, bedding and accents, like these wall decals.

Dot Your Eyes. Polka dots are always popular, but this year they’re popping up in every size. Look for dots that are hand drawn, watercolor and mini-sized, and use them on walls, bedding or rugs.
