Sneak Peek: Molly Sims’s Nursery

05/18/2012 at 10:00 AM ET

After celebrating her firstborn’s upcoming arrival at a fun, festive baby shower on Saturday, Molly Sims has turned her attention to nesting, by planning her son’s sweetly modern bedroom.

Due next month, the actress/model/mama-to-be talks about her nursery inspiration in a video for Valspar Paint’s new Valspar Color Project.

“The way to go is definitely more of a pastel color on the wall,” the star, who aims for a light, contemporary look, says about her chosen soft green hue (Valspar’s Zen Garden, a non-VOC paint). “It changes the whole mood, it changes the atmosphere; I walk in and it feels light.”

Sims worked with interior designer Kishani Perera to incorporate vintage and eclectic elements into the baby boy’s room, including Nurseryworks’ Loom Crib, bedding by Dwell Studio, Jonathan Adler’s chevron throw, a mix of vintage and John Robshaw pillows from Hollywood at Home, and a Moroccan pouf from Zouk.

Love that color, wouldn’t mind using that as my living room/dining room/hallway color!

Just used that color on the walls of our master bedroom and en-suite bath; LOVE it!! I use a rich eggplant purple as an accent color and it is gorgeous with our furniture. It’s a color you don’t get tired of right away, and lots of colors go with it. Love the idea of it in a nursery; it’s great with a sort of contemporary, ‘modern from the 50’s” type look, and it’s also really nice with almost any wood. Great choice!!
