Go Inside Coco Rocha's Beautiful Nursery
In February, when supermodel Coco Rocha was still expecting her first child, she told PEOPLE she was "all about showing off [her] bump," as evidenced in this photo. Another thing she's all about showing off? Her daughter's funky nursery, which she designed with Alex Reid from One Kings Lane.
Rocha's husband, James Conran, is an interior designer, so we wouldn't have expected anything less fabulous for Ioni, who was born on March 28. "I never wanted a nursery to look too babyish," Rocha told Vogue two weeks after Ioni's birth. "A baby doesn't know that it's in a room just for them. I wanted it to be interesting."a
Bold patterns and clean designs dominate Ioni's space, balancing a youthful and sophisticated aesthetic. And, as the plush gray pillow suggests, there's a lot of love happening.
"We wanted everything we owned to be on display and still look beautiful," Rocha told Vogue. "We love that everything isn't picture, picture, picture." (Though clearly she couldn't resist placing a Twiggy portrait on top of the minimalist shelving unit.)
Reid set out to fashion a nursery that reflected Coco's style and incorporated an eclectic variety of patterns. The room's small touches are colorful, funky and playful (as exhibited by the frog), while managing to avoid feeling cluttered.
"Having a mirror across from the window gives the room more light, and the gold in the mirror and the chandelier really gives the room a good ambiance," Rocha said. (We agree, but all our attention is on the sweet photo of an Ioni ultrasound!)
Topping the nursery's funky art collage is a portrait of Rocha herself, sketched by artist David Downton while they were out for coffee.a
