Whitney Port Shows Off Her New Nursery and Master Bedroom: 'It Fills Your Heart So Much'
Whitney Port's Family Retreat
When Whitney Port and her husband Tim Rosenman, 36, picked up their 3-bed, 2-bath abode in Studio City, California, they were on a serious time crunch. “We moved in a week before Sonny was born,” the former Hills star tells PEOPLE (she welcomed their baby boy on July 27). Designing the nursery was the first priority, in hopes that “I didn’t feel like so misplaced and disorganized,” after bringing her new son home.
Because the baby’s gender was unknown, Port was tasked with designing a space that could appeal to both boys and girls. She joined forces with Joss & Main style director Donna Garlough and together they created the 32-year-old’s ideal combination of “enough cutsieness mixed with classic sophistication.”
“I absolutely love the daybed,” Port says of the cream-colored centerpiece. “In the middle of the night when we do the feeding routine, one of us can lay on the daybed and the other can be sitting in the chair with him. It’s really comfortable.”
Her glider chair is the super hero piece. “It’s really where we spend most of our time in the room with the baby,” she says “It’s just a necessity for any nursery.”
The statement wallpaper was a last minute addition. “It was really whimsical and happy,” she says. “It can really last into when he’s a little kid.”
Whitney's Sweet Suite
The master bedroom was next on her list of decorating to-dos. “In my old home, we kind of lived in our closet,” she says. “I wanted to make sure our bedroom felt like a sanctuary.”
A neutral color palette with pops of soft blue achieve the “bohemian but also classic” look she was aiming for — and she wasn’t the only one with a few design requirements. “[Tim] was very particular about the bedside tables,” Port says. “It’s important for him to have enough space to put his stuff.”
Smart and Chic
“I have a good amount of clothes,” Port admits, laughing. “The dressers in our bedroom are good storage spaces while also being really cool-looking.”
The standout of the suite is a cozy side seating area. “I can do some work, sit with the baby while I breastfeed or pump, or look outside and read a magazine or have my morning coffee,” she says. “It’s just a great private space for me to have my time.”
Room to Grow
With the nursery and master bedroom checked off her to-do list, Port can now focus on what’s important: life as a new mom. “Motherhood is wonderful,” she says. “It fills your heart so much.” And although she admits “we’d love Sonny to have a brother or sister,” they aren’t in any rush to expand just yet. “We want to continue to grow our family,” she says. “But definitely not any time soon!”
