Desiree Hartsock, who is expecting a boy with husband Chris Siegfried in October, had no problem handing over the reins when it came to designing her baby's nursery.
The former Bachelorette and her mortgage broker husband, both 30, enlisted East Coast Creative's Monica Mangin to design the 8x10-foot space in secret.
"I just sent her my Pinterest board with a lot of neutrals," Hartsock tells Us. "No characters or cartoons. That's not us. We really wanted it to feel like us."
When the Seattle couple finally got to lay eyes on the transformed room after the two-day remodel, waterworks ensued.
"It just hit me," says the bridal stylist. "This is where our baby is going to be!"
A hand-calligraphed accent wall penned by Manayunk Calligraphy holds quotes from Winnie the Pooh and Where the Wild Things Are. Explains Mangin, "The theme is, 'You're going to be amazing, little one.'"
Rather than going the traditional route with an "overstuffed" rocking chair, Mangin chose a rattan chair and ottoman for the 8x10-foot space.
