We've caught a glimpse of The Bachelorette's Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's nursery before, but our friends at Project Nursery are sharing a full look into the travel-themed space. Thanks to designer Vanessa Antonelli of NessaLee Baby, the couple was able to seamlessly add rustic touches to a modern space, which baby Fordham will no doubt love as he grows.
"When I first met with Ashley, I asked her to show me things she likes in terms of other spaces, furniture and decor. I felt like all of the things she chose were very different from each other," Antonelli told Project Nursery. "I wanted to give her exactly what she was dreaming of, so I needed to find a way to fuse the two styles so they made sense together visually. I think the best way to do that is to not go color crazy."
The result was a neutral-colored room with a subtle travel theme, a nod to Ashley and J.P.’s memories of traveling together. Maps, sailboats and airplanes can be found throughout the space. While the couple found it difficult to choose a favorite piece, Antonelli says they ultimately love the driftwood wall the most. That wall features a special accent — a handmade set of wire Letters spelling "Fordham."
"I always like to choose some handmade products to add into every space I design. There are so many talented artisans in this world and it makes the room that much more special," says Antonelli.
