It’s fun to imagine what the inside of celebrity homes look like, but it’s often not quite what we think it would be. Sterile furniture and minimalistic decor sometimes make for a space that is always camera ready but, let’s face it, never looks like anyone actually lives there. However, when Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins offered a glimpse into the rooms their baby girls occupy, the words that spring to mind aren’t sterile or minimalistic, but instead welcoming and cozy.
T-Rhett and Lauren took People into both toddler Willa Gray and infant Ada James’ bedrooms, and they each look like good places to curl up with your baby for afternoon snuggles.
Neither room is filled with an abundance of pink or ruffles, but instead crisp whites and neutrals. The decor includes a mobile that Lauren picked up on a mission trip in Haiti, lots and lots of books and a special photo.
In a frame in Ada’s room is a photo of Willa with a t-shirt that reads “Big Sister.” The couple took the photo while in Willa’s native Uganda as a way to tell their families that they were expecting while in the midst of adopting Willa. Thomas says the shirt was roughly made with colored pencils purchased at a gas station.
Lauren explains, “We had limited resources on how we were going to tell our family, so we had this picture framed for everybody and that’s how we told everybody that [Ada] was coming into the world. That’s probably the sweetest thing in here, especially to us, because that was such a fun memory – trying to get that picture and then getting to tell everybody.”
We might have to disagree with her on the sweetest thing in Ada’s room, though. Lauren also says that big sister Willa often tries to climb into her baby sister’s crib to nap with her. That sounds pretty sweet.
