Celebrity interior designers, Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco of Little Crown Interiors recently had the opportunity to design an amazing nursery for Iraq war veteran and champion of Dancing with the Stars, J.R. Martinez! J.R. and Diana Gonzalez-Jones, wanted to create a soothing and sophisticated nursery for their first child, Lauryn Anabelle, nicknamed Belle. The talented team at Little Crown achieved just this, creating an elegant and unique space for Belle that is truly stunning.
In keeping with the breezy-chic design aesthetic, Gerri and Naomi chose to paint the walls a soft ivory and install gorgeous white-washed Cape Ann Hardwood in Rockport flooring by Shaw. Then, to add a touch of elegance, they added the beautiful “Edie” Wallpaper by Tempaper in a luminous champagne and the ultra cozy Posh Area Rug in pearl also by Shaw.
Diana and J.R. wanted nursery furniture with a contemporary edge in rich, bold tones. With furniture from Young America by Stanley Furniture Company, in a two-tone wood finish and a custom upholstered glider and pouf by Oilo in a deep burgundy hue, the room immediately became a warm and inviting space, perfect for a baby girl.
To accent the rich tones of the furniture, Little Crown chose gorgeous lighting and decor with gold detailing, coordinating perfectly with the rest of the room’s color palette. Also accented in gold is the nursery’s centerpiece. Hand painted by Southern California artist Chelsea McGraw, is a stunning mural above Belle’s crib which depicts angelic images of J.R.’s sister and Diana’s sister—both of whom were taken from this world far too soon—watching over sweet baby Belle as she sleeps. The mural also integrates Little Crown’s laser-cut wall letters in metallic gold, making the room extra special for Belle.
