A Girl's Nursery Design For Pregnant Natalie Portman

A Nursery For Natalie: A Girl's Room

With so many celebrity pregnancies in the news, I've got nursery design on the brain. One of the mommies-in-waiting that I'm most excited about is Natalie Portman; she has flawless style, and there's no doubt her first child will be a beautiful one. So she's a perfect candidate for my first nursery design project! The word's not out yet on the gender of her baby, so I'll simply have to design rooms for both! First up: a girl's room.

To get a feel for Natalie's style, I took a look back at photos of her former West Village, NYC apartment. It's clear that Natalie is a traditionalist at heart, although she did integrate a few trend pieces here and there. Like her personality, her aesthetic is also quite reserved; there aren't any bold focal points or bright colors. She's also keen on button tufting, stripes, cool colors, wallpaper, and Madeline Weinrib rugs. She integrated a little glitz with chandeliers but didn't go overboard on "glam" furnishings.

Natalie clearly has a soft spot for classic furniture, so I began with the Williams-Sonoma Home Fontaine Inlay Chest ($1,950); it'll last a lifetime for her little one, and it's gender-neutral. Next, I chose the Nursery Works Empire Rocker ($1,100) which feeds her love of tufted upholstery and cool colors and is also very high-end and sophisticated. To create a soft pink and gray palette, I went with Graham & Brown's pink Countess Wallpaper ($75), from the brand's new Elixir collection. To coordinate, I selected the Madeline Weinrib Pink Westley Rug. And as a nod to the way Natalie and fiancé Benjamin met, I found a painting of A Pair of Ballerina Shoes ($215), by artist Liat Sterling. Click the product images to shop the rest of this nursery!
