It's fun to flip through magazines and blogs and check out lavish nurseries put together by big name designers or professionals, but it's easy to feel a disconnect in the face of their polished perfection. (What? Your nursery doesn't have two vases of fresh flowers?). But don't let that stop you from taking inspiration from them for your own more humble home.

This room was designed by Lucas Studio in West Hollywood and was part of the Stately Homes by the Sea Designer Show House this past spring. The room is sophisticated and extravagant (not to mention huge) and may feel unattainable. But if you feel drawn to it, try to suss out what it is you are attracted to. The shapes, the mood, the color palette, the mix of textures, the giant pelican painting? Pull these ideas from it and think about how they can work in your home and budget.
