Naturi Naughton's Nursery

I’m sure you all know actress Naturi Naughton from her role as Tasha St. Patrick on the hit crime drama Power on Starz. She recently gave birth to her beautiful baby girl Zuri in July and I had a blast working with her to design her nursery! Pottery Barn Kids collaborated with us to help create a dream nursery space for Naturi and Zuri to enjoy and I’m excited to share a peek inside the room plus the scoop on how it all came together!

When Naturi and I first chatted about designing a nursery for her baby girl …

When it comes to decorating I believe in being fearless with your choices and I’m excited to share this first look at a bedroom I designed where I was absolutely fearless in my choices. It’s no secret that I love color and pattern and in this space I went BOLD!!! Bold colors + a bold mix of patterns and it all works together beautifully. This isn’t always easy to pull off but I wanted to share a few tips on how to confidently mix and match bold patterns and colors in a space.

One Kings Lane Connecticut Farmhouse

I’ve been lusting after a country house in upstate New York for ages and these days the idea is actually a realistic prospect. I spend ridiculous amounts of time looking at real estate listings and while I have yet to find my dream house, I already have ideas for how I’d like to design it.

Beachy Living Room Get the Look-4

Now that the weather is finally warming up I’m already thinking about sunny days at the beach. There’s nothing like the relaxed feel of a warm breeze, salty air and endless ocean views. I decided to bring a bit of that easy, breezy beach vibe to this model apartment I designed here in New York. NYC can be a cold, gray place so I wanted to channel that feeling of an endless summer at home. This space has a relaxed, California coastal feeling which makes it so warm and inviting! If you’re looking to update your decor, here’s some inspiration …

Coastal Beachy Bedroom Get the Look_8

Fresh and clean. Like a sunny day in May when you can smell the flowers blooming and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. That’s the vibe I was going for when designing this bedroom for a model apartment project I finished a while back. This model unit was in a rental building and like a typical NYC apartment, it’s tiny! The overall apartment inspiration was a beachy, relaxed ambiance so for this bedroom I chose a palette of cool blues for a fresh, clean look. Designing a model home is a bit different than designing a home for a …

I always believe that when executed well, the use of color can be the single most transformative design element in a room.  Case in point: this cheery, boho-modern bedroom I designed for a model apartment project that debuted last year. I can’t believe I haven’t shared this one with you yet but I’m excited to finally show you this lovely space! Let’s start the reveal by taking a look at what the room looked like before…

Since this was a model apartment, I began the design planning before there were even walls up which is really tough to do because …
