Rihanna Is Pregnant (!) So Naturally Our Editors Went Into Nursery Design Mode
We found love in this brass-lined crib.
Published Jan 31, 2022 4:53 PM
Love isn’t the only thing on Rihanna’s brain these days—apparently so is a baby. The “Umbrella” singer and Fenty Beauty founder announced earlier today that she and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together. In true RiRi style, the pop star showed off her bump by sporting a partially unbuttoned bright pink puffer coat and body jewels.
While the rest of the world ponders what cool name the couple will give their little one, our first thought was a little different. “Can you imagine what the nursery will look like?!” our editors immediately Slacked one another after hearing the news. We have no doubt that her little one’s nest will be as fierce as Mom’s fashion choices, but should she need any help designing the room, we sourced five finds to get her started.
A Little Zebra Print to Set the Scene
Zebra Flat-Weave Rug, Cold Picnic ($636)
While you can never go wrong with an oversize giraffe stuffed animal, we have a hunch the star will gravitate toward zebra-inspired decor when it comes to wildlife nods. (The London home she rented in 2020 featured zebra-print pillows galore, plus she is known to be the proud owner of a black and white Rick Owens coat that has serious jungle vibes.)
A Crib That Shines Bright Like a Diamond
Caden Bassinet, RH ($1,100)
Glam is the name of the game here, and no material says “this space belongs to an A-list newborn” like antiqued brass. Of course, all practicality isn’t out the window: This bassinet is upholstered in performance linen because accidents happen to everyone.
A Blinged-Out Speaker
Bluetooth Mini Boombox, Maisonette ($70)
Relaxing lullabies (or if the mood calls for it, Mom and Dad’s own tunes) will sound sweeter coming out of this bejeweled Bluetooth-enabled speaker. And when their little one reaches the toddler stage, the couple can buy the matching sing-along karaoke microphone to go with it.
A Saint Laurent–Inspired Moment
I Love Me Pillow, Oeuf ($80)
In honor of Rihanna’s iconic Saint Laurent red heart-shaped fur coat (the photo she posted of herself in the jacket on Instagram garnered more than 800,000 likes), we present to you an adorable addition to any style of rocking chair.
An Homage to Home
Martinique Celebration Wallpaper, Voutsa x CW Stockwell ($1,000 per roll)
The Barbados-born singer can teach her little one about her roots right off the bat by cladding an accent wall or ceiling in this vibrant print that is reminiscent of the Caribbean island’s colorful architecture.
