After welcoming her first child, Kassem, The Power of Sprinkles author and chef for the 2022 Met Gala, opened up to PEOPLE about creating the perfect space at home for Coco.

She detailed how she brought her go-to colorful sensibilities to designing a room for her then newborn.

"As I approached the nursery design, I thought about the joy and happiness that my bakery Flour Shop brings to kids and the creativity my own childhood in Mexico inspired in me, and I wanted to create a similar environment for Coco," Kassem told PEOPLE.

"Rainbow is my favorite color, so it was an easy choice to pull in bright colors and balance it with white and a little metallic touch here and there," she added at the time.

The proud mom said "a happy environment for children is key" and the nursery has become a "pocket of sunshine" in their home.

"I love to walk in there and find Coco in the happiest possible space," said Kassem. "I also wanted to make sure all the pieces of furniture served their full functionality in addition to being colorful and cheery. I found it to be a lot like designing a kitchen where functionally is the top priority and making it look good is the fun cherry on top!"
