Interior designer Willa Ford admits that even though she has helped bring tons of home visions to fruition, when it came time to design a nursery for her own child, she needed a good place to begin.

“When you do so many different aesthetics for so many different people, you go, ‘I love this trend and that trend’ and get it out of your system. When it comes to yours, you freeze for a minute,” the former singer, who gained fame for her 2001 hit “I Wanna Be Bad,” tells PEOPLE of the gender-neutral room she designed for her first child, a delivery surprise due at the end of August.

“It was honestly about the wallpaper [being] the starting point,” adds the mom-to-be, who married former Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Ryan Nece in October.

“With my personality, I just knew it had to look nature-y. It’s so funny — we focus so much on the baby and what the baby’s gonna love. They’re never gonna know what it looks like! I’ll pay money if you can remember what your nursery looked like,” Ford, 35, jokes. “It’s really about the mom!”

All the Details on Kerry Washington’s Nail Color Named for Her Daughter Isabelle

08/04/2016 at 04:15 PM ET

Kerry Washington has tacked on OPI Creative Ambassador to her long list of achievements.

The soon-to-be mom of two recently teamed up with the brand to collaborate on their fall/winter lacquer collection, called OPI Washington D.C. So it’s only fitting that the stylish actress, who plays Olivia Pope on the political drama Scandal, was someone whose influence OPI sought.

One person Washington herself looked to for inspiration? Her 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi, whom Washington named one of the colors for.

“There’s a phrase in D.C. where people say, ‘Inside the Beltway,’ so one of the colors is ‘Inside the ISABELLEtway,’ ” the actress, 39, tells PEOPLE. “It’s one of my favorites, actually, because it’s a beautiful nude for brown girls.

“When I was growing up, ‘nude’ didn’t always mean people that looked like me, so it’s a really beautiful neutral for darker tones, which I love,” she adds.

Loving Mom-to-Be Mila Kunis’ Recent Style? The (Non-Maternity!) Looks Will Work for You – Pregnant or Not

07/25/2016 at 11:00 AM ET

Mila Kunis has been switching up her looks over the last couple of weeks as she makes the rounds to promote her upcoming comedy Bad Moms, opening Friday nationwide. But the one thing she hasn’t changed is the designer behind her outfits: Ulla Johnson.

First, the soon-to-be mom of two, 32, wore the designer’s Isle Blouse ($322) in black at a press junket July 10. On July 18, she was seen in dark colors again, sporting the Alexi Jumpsuit ($345) in Coal at the Bad Moms premiere in New York City.

Most recently, the actress and wife of Ashton Kutcher rocked three different pieces Wednesday, including the embroidered Elena dress ($403) — which she joked on Live with Kelly was “a big, puffy” frock that hid her bump strategically when Kelly Ripa told Kunis she could barely tell she was pregnant.

Rounding out her Wednesday ensembles were the Astrid Blouse ($196), which she paired with A Pea in the Pod’s AG Jeans during a session for AOL Live, and the Jamila Blouse ($483), which she was seen in during an appearance on the Today show.

Inside Amy Davidson’s Nautical Nursery for Son Lennox: I ‘Tend to Go Overboard’ with the Anchor Theme

07/19/2016 at 05:00 PM ET

When it came time to design the nursery for Amy Davidson‘s son Lennox Sawyer, now 4 months, there was one person whose influence was front and center.

“Lennox’s room was inspired by my husband. [Kacy Lockwood] is a boat captain and has always had an affinity for the ocean,” the actress, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Adds Davidson, whose baby shower thrown by close pal and former 8 Simple Rules costar Kaley Cuoco sported a similar feel, “Because of this, the nautical theme came naturally to us.”.

“I can tend to go overboard with them,” she jokes of her love for anchors in particular. “So my husband had to set a limit!”
