Jessica Simpson is 'not neurotic'

Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson are the "most un-neurotic people," according to their nursery designer Rachel Ashwell.

The interior decorator was asked to help put together baby Maxwell's room months before her arrival on May 1.

And Rachel tells People magazine that Jessica had a very clear vision about how she wanted the room to look.

"Jessica is very pretty and feminine, but she didn't want this to be over-the-top frilly," Rachel told the publication. "The words she used were 'gypsy' and 'bohemian,' so we brought in lavenders and mauves with a bit of pink and aqua."

The nursery is a mixture of luxury furniture from boutiques as well as items picked up from flea markets and vintage stores.

"They were probably the most un-neurotic people I've ever known," Rachel said. "Jessica wanted [the nursery] to be cosy and cute, and she was very respectful of Eric, asking, 'Do you like this?' And he was nicely opinionated."

"I found being around them very inspiring to think, 'Wow, [this is] a real collaborative vision.' I even wrote them a little note saying, 'It's been such a privilege to be part of making your home for you, because I know it's going to be a house of substance.'"
