Bright and playful, inviting, and whimsical, celebrity mom Christy Carlson’s creative, cat-themed nursery for her daughter Isabella gives us all sorts of nursery goals! Set against a primarily white palette, adorable feline artwork is woven with natural, green elements to create an eclectic cat-goes-on-a-tropical-vacation space. With its sharp silhouette and clean lines, the Evolur Maddox Nursery Collection, 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, and Double Dresser lend the nursery a distinctly modern vibe. Sprinkled across the room are golden-hued accents that take the decor to a whole new level.

Take a tour of this totally fun and fabulous cat-themed nursery and let us know what you think about it!

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?

My daughter loves kitties! So much so that she got a beautiful Bengal cat for Christmas! We wanted to make sure that we embraced her passions while also giving her a chic big girl nursery.

What drew you to Evolur over other nursery brands?

I love Evolur because the options make it so that you can’t go wrong in your design. Everything listed on their website is stylish and so adaptable to any room design that you might have. The color choices are also fantastic.

Did the room pose any design challenges?

Yes, the room has a window that I thought might be able to house the bookshelf but we ended up using the bookshelf in the hallway adjoining so that both girls can use it as a learning center.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?

Brendan and I were both on the same page with having fun with her nursery but he does like things a little bit more on the modern side. He won this round!

What does this color scheme mean to you?

I’m really happy with the color scheme! I chose to go with Dark green, pink and gold accents on fresh white walls with fun decals. The crib and dresser being white help accentuate any colors I put in the room.

What accessories did you choose and why?

I really like the decals on the ceiling and crib wall because I feel like they add production value to the theme of the room.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?

It’s hard to pick between the crib and the dresser because I so heavily depend on each of them every day. I love the way we organized her clothes in the dresser there was more than enough room for her whole wardrobe!

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?

I love the pieces because I feel like she can grow with them!

Something interesting that happened before, during, or after the pregnancy?

It took a very long time to decorate this room because I got sick during the move and went into labor a week early. So both of my girl’s nurseries were not designed. It was a really upsetting time because I just wanted to nest. I’m so happy with my Evolur pieces because they literally made the room come together super fast!

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
