This super glam nursery was designed by Casey Winchell Napolitano. She is a real estate agent and designer working in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters. The Hollywood Regency style nursery we’re touring today is for her second baby girl Gemma Star, and everything about it is super chic but with a playful twist. Thank you, Casey, for sharing your space with us!
Where did you pull inspiration for your nursery design?
I am obsessed with black and white, and so I immediately started brainstorming black and white themes—zebras and greek keys came to mind. I wanted to take the whole chic mod Hollywood Regency vibe to a whole new level, nursery style.
I dreamed about her name one night in a pink neon sign and woke up and found it on Etsy and thought it would look fantastic on top of wallpaper. I found the greek key wallpaper by Jill Sorensen and HAD to have it. From there, the room just sort of evolved.

Which part of the design process did you enjoy the most?
I love designing rooms, and homes in general, because they are so personal and should reflect love as well as personality. I enjoyed imagining what my baby girl Gemma might be like, and most of all, what kind of life I wanted to give her. I imagined that she would be the type of girl who was daring, who would want to stand out in her own way, and I think her nursery exudes that.
What is your favorite part or detail in your nursery?
My favorite detail in the nursery is the sign that I designed because it is one of a kind. It is almost like Gemma Star’s own personal logo, and I think she will love it forever—as a little girl, teenager, college student and 20-something. She can bring it with her through all of life’s adventures.

What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project?
My advice to other parents is pick a color scheme (for me, black and white with pops of pink) or theme (like zebras) that you just have to have and then work around that and let the creative process just flow!

Where did they get the neon sign? My daughters name is Gemma as well but when I click on the link it doesn’t work.
Hi Hannah, I think it’s just the busy wallpaper that makes your eye not focus on the wire. If you look at all the photos you can sometimes spot it coming out of the right side.
How did they hide the cord to the neon sign so well?!
