Room designed by Vanessa Antonelli, Photos by Christine Farah Photography
Before Alexa and Carlos PenaVega welcomed their adorable son, Ocean King, on Dec. 7, they called on designer Vanessa Antonelli to make a splash with their first baby’s nursery – now they are showing off the $15,000 room exclusively to Life & Style magazine.
“This nursery is unlike any space I’ve ever done,” Vanessa, who has also worked with Kendra and Hank Baskett and Kevin and Danielle Jonas, reveals. “They wanted soothing neutrals with a pop here or there.”
Those pops include a $2,400 crib-and-dresser set from the new Rio Collection by Natart and what Vanessa calls “the most fun piece in the room,” a $1,300 lighted marquee sign by Metal & Lights behind the crib.
“The nursery is everything we wanted!” says the Spy Kids actress, adding that her husband Carlos, 27, had a lot of input when it came to the room’s look.
“He’s actually pretty good when it comes to design and ideas!” Alexa, 28, says. “Vanessa took what we gave her and really made it feel fresh.”
