Ashley Williams Clears Up the Inspiration Behind Her Son’s Name

10/22/2015 at 10:00 AM ET

The challenge of picking a moniker for her first child wasn’t lost on Ashley Williams.

“Naming is hard; that name is forever,” the actress, 36, tells Mini magazine.

Luckily, after months of scrolling through a growing list of options on her phone, Williams and husband Neal Dodson were able to settle on the perfect designation for their baby boy: Gus.

“It’s not short for anything and it’s not a family name. It’s not for the fat mouse in Cinderella, though he’s amazing,” she jokes. “We just loved it from the start.”

Inside Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown’s Rustic Nursery: We Wanted to Honor Our Southern Roots

09/23/2015 at 03:55 PM ET

Jenn Brown has brought that Southern charm to California.

The TV personality teamed up with Oilo to create a rustic nursery for John Nash, her 10-month-old son with her husband, actor Wes Chatham.

Working with designers Annalisa Thomas and Dorte Anderson, Brown and Chatham — who will next appear as Castor in the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and on SYFY’s new show, The Expanse  — stuck with neutral tones that complemented the tree branch-printed wallpaper.

From there, the group added the necessities like a crib and furniture from Newport Cottages, a glider, a cozy rug from Lulu & Georgia and a cradle from BabyHome.

And to bring it all together, the couple brought in plenty of personal touches including wooden letters from The Shop on Kelly Avenue to spell out Nash’s name, a Tnees Teepee, triangle shelves from Elm Avenue Shop, a feather mobile from Whitehall Farm, and shoes from Stride Rite with Mabel’s Labels inside.

Now that the nursery is complete, Brown chatted with PEOPLE about the finished product, her favorite items and Nash’s latest milestones (including sleeping in his crib!).

Inside Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s Nursery for Daughter Poppy

09/08/2015 at 05:25 PM ET

Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent have unveiled their biggest labor of love to date.

In the October issue of Architectural Digest, the couple share the nursery they designed for their 5-month-old daughter, Poppy, in the family’s new apartment in New York City. Even cuter: Poppy joined her proud dads for the cover shoot, showing the world just how much she’s grown since making her debut in PEOPLE in May.

“We knew we wanted to have a family and that we wanted to raise our child in New York,” Berkus, 43, tells the magazine. Adds Brent, “The day we closed on the apartment, we were walking through Washington Square, and I told Nate, ‘We have to treasure this.’ For two kids from Minnesota and California to be living in this apartment on lower Fifth? It’s insane. I always wanted to live beautifully, and the idea of Nate and Poppy and me creating a life here together…”

Inside CaCee Cobb’s Boho Chic Nursery: ‘I Didn’t Want the Stereotypical Pink’

09/04/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

When CaCee Cobb found out she was having a daughter, she didn’t immediately start dreaming of decorating a pink nursery.

In fact, Cobb wanted something completely different for Wilder Frances, whom she and husband Donald Faison welcomed in April.

“I didn’t want it to be the stereotypical pink many people envision when they think of a girl’s nursery,” she explains.

In addition to spending time scouting ideas on Pinterest, Cobb enlisted the help of interior designer, Vanessa Antonelli, who managed to bring the mom-to-be’s ideas to life.

“I really had no vision other than I didn’t want a pink room. That’s what was so great about Vanessa because she really helped me understand what my style was and what it wasn’t,” Cobb says of her second child’s sleep space.

“I chose a peachish pink and we accented with navy, mint and gold. It’s feminine in a boho chic way.”

Inside Savannah Guthrie’s ‘Neutral’ Nursery for Daughter Vale: ‘It’s the Happiest Room’

08/19/2015 at 11:30 AM ET

The first thing Savannah Guthrie does after co-anchoring NBC’s Today show is run home to her daughter Vale.

“On an average day, I can be home by lunch time and then it’s Vale and me all afternoon,” the journalist, 43, tells PEOPLE of her first child with husband Michael Feldman. “We play for a couple of hours and then we take our naps together!”

Playtime (and naptime) take place in the 1-year-old’s animal-themed nursery, which Guthrie calls “the happiest room in the house.”

“We were going for the neutral look because I didn’t know if I was having a boy or a girl,” she says. “And since she’s come along, we’ve added the color.”

Inside Jessie James Decker’s Nursery: ‘I Always Wanted a Sports Theme’

07/29/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

With her second child — a son! — due in September, Jessie James Decker has finally put the finishing touches on her baby boy’s nursery.

And the soon-to-be mom of two has scored a major touchdown with the vintage sleep space, designed by Decker with the help of Joss & Main‘s style director.

“I knew I always wanted a sports-theme room. As soon as I got pregnant with him and knew it was a boy, I just felt like it fit his personality!” Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE.

“I think when people do the animal themes, they are cute and all, but it just didn’t feel like this little guy. He feels like a cool sports dude already.”

Inside Naya Rivera’s Neutral-Toned Nursery — Inspired by a Teepee!

06/30/2015 at 09:55 PM ET

Naya Rivera‘s nursery is something to cheer about.

The former Glee star shows off her baby’s sleep space in a series of photos for My Domaine, in which she shares that the inspiration behind the neutral-toned nursery was a black-and-white teepee she and husband Ryan Dorsey purchased before the pregnancy.

Once the couple — who wed in July 2014 — discovered they were expecting their first child in late summer, Rivera, 28, and designer Angelo Surmelis went to work creating a room centered on her fun find from The Land of Nod.

“I actually was really inspired by the teepee and sort of built the room around that,” she says. “Then I stayed within the color palette of black, white, cream, and gray.”
