To get ready for daughter Simone Lynn‘s arrival in mid-June, Tori Spelling‘s Guncles (Bill Horn and Scout Masterson) set about converting a guest room in their L.A. home into a princess-worthy nursery.

But the new parents weren’t sure about the theme. It was after discovering an adorable owl pillow at Target that it all came together.

“An owl themed nursery just seemed so fun and unique,” Masterson tells PEOPLE Moms & Babies.

Once the theme was set, the dads added framed owl art they found on eBay. But it’s the owl painting by ‘Nana J’ — Masterson’s mom Jackie Bennett — and sketching by a fan that they cherish the most.

For three of the walls, they decided against traditional pink and opted for a deep raspberry custom blended by Masterson. To complete the theme, they added a super cute mini step stool by KT Steppers that sports a colorful owl design.

Instead of a rectangular changing table, the couple chose a round one from Time For a Change. Available for purchase in October, the uniquely shaped piece is a real space saver.


And they didn’t have to go far for Simone’s wooden crib — it’s on loan from good friends Spelling and Dean McDermott.

“Tori really wanted it to stay in the family,” says Horn. “We always loved Liam’s crib and to be able to now have baby Simone use it makes it all that much more special to us.”


To give it a more girlie vibe, they used the Punch Basics Crib Bumper, Crib Skirt and Pink Florentine sheets from Serena & Lily. They also added a mobile and blanket from Kenneth Brown‘s Sweet Stitches collection at Babies R Us.

To add some fun to the room, Masterson painted a fourth wall with chalkboard paint and drew an owl and “Simone Rocks!” And the elephant-shaped piggy bank was a gift from a family friend that the couple have dubbed “Baby’s First Adler.”


For nighttime feedings or just hanging out, Horn and Masterson chose SPI Design‘s Windward Wingback Glider and matching ottoman in a pretty blue pattern.

“We love the high back. It’s a must for two tall dads,” says Masterson. “It’s also classic and stylish enough that we’ll be able to use it in any room once Simone no longer needs it.”


So what is baby Simone up to these days?

In addition to getting used to her feeding schedule, the 2-month-old is perfecting her grip and lifting her head more and more each day.

“When I found Simone in her pack-and-play grasping onto her rattle and shaking it around, I almost cried,” laughs Horn. “Clearly, she’s in for years of embarrassing crying episodes.”
