No signs of donkeys here: Phaedra Parks‘s nursery for her second son is all about spotlighting man’s best friend.
The cutesy sleep space — a surprise from Parks’s mom after the Real Housewives of Atlanta star welcomed now 7-month-old son Dylan — prominently features the Red Doggy Days pattern from Carousel Designs.
Once the proud grandma had chosen the pooch-worthy print, she turned to the company’s interactive nursery tool, focusing on four rich hues (dark brown, gray, red and mustard yellow) to piece together everything from cozy bedding to matching window treatments and extra ottomans that doubled as storage space.
Obviously, Parks’s mom knows her well. The room — which features plenty of personal touches including a colorful chevron wall design, family photos and a vintage gumball machine — has been a huge hit with the whole family including husband Apollo Nida.
“Both of our sons love the new nursery. The baby loves the bright colors and mirrored shapes on the ceiling,” Parks tells PEOPLE of the mounted circular mirrors.
But while Dylan has his sights set high, big brother Ayden is focused on the sweetest spots in the room: the jars of colorful confections, which were added to brighten up the space.
“Our oldest son Ayden loves the interactive features on the walls and of course the candy bar!” Parks says.
