"After brainstorming with Ashley I learned that she likes both rustic and modern decor. I spent some time at the drawing board to have the two work together in a way that makes sense," Antonelli says. "Adding in acrylic [in the crib] makes a nursery instantly feel modern. The nature-inspired colors and wood elements gave it the rustic feel she wanted and softened it up for a baby."
The wall behind his crib is perhaps the most dramatic touch; it was an ordinary wall at the start of the project and Antonelli used Stikwood, which is made of reclaimed wood and adheres permanently to a wall surface, to transform it to look like a deep-woods lodge. (The cost of the entire wall was roughly $1,200.)
Ford sleeps in BabyLetto's Harlow convertible crib ($600); Antonelli refinished the base to change it from gray to a warm brown. Inside is Nook's organic Pebble Pure mattress ($395), so pretty it doesn't even need a sheet; the cover it comes with can easily be thrown in the wash.
The glider and ottoman both came from Little Castle, where everything is customizable and chairs start at approximately $700. The Cobblestone Pillow ($59), from OiloStudio, sits on the glider. Ford's bouncer seat, beside his crib, is Nuna's Leaf ($220). And of course he's got his name on the wall in big, bold letters! That's a sign of parents who are super-excited to welcome their baby to the world. —Jessica Hartshorn
