As interior designers, we felt it was our civic duty to design a nursery for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s future child. Between Rihanna’s pregnancy looks and general icon status and A$AP’s impeccable high-fashion sense (let us not forget their 2013 debut in the rapper’s Fashion Killa music video), we simply couldn’t resist. We’re only human.

Whether or not they’ll actually take our design advice remains to be seen, but we were far too excited to share our take on what will undoubtedly be the most edgy, badass infant’s chamber the world will ever lay eyes on (if we’re lucky).

Ahead, see three different designer takes on Rihanna’s future nursery, courtesy of team Havenly. From colorful and graphic to retro and edgy, each look takes inspiration from Bad Gal’s inimitable, rule-bending, straight-up iconic style and persona.

“Rihanna’s Vogue cover last month inspired this design — I wanted to contrast that iconic Rihanna edge with classic accents, like the crystal light fixtures and brass pedestal table. Eclectic touches, like the checkerboard cabinet as a changing table, speak to the unconventional, out-of-the box fashion sense that Rihanna is so famous for.” – Havenly designer Melissa Wagner

Nursery Concept 3: Moody & Dramatic

“I also took inspiration from Rihanna’s recent Vogue cover, specifically the rich, blue-toned photos with brass accents — so regal! With the palette nailed down, I then incorporated a few tropical accents, including the brass fixture and floral wallpaper, to reflect her Barbados heritage.” – Havenly designer Kasee Smith
