PHOTOS: Inside J.R. Martinez’s Daughter’s Nursery
J.R. Martinez recently moved into a new property with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones and his preferred space isn’t a man cave with a huge flat screen tv — it is daughter Lauryn Anabelle‘s nursery.
The couple welcomed their tiny girl, whom they nicknamed Belle, on Might two.
While nevertheless in the throes of unpacking and organizing their new Los Angeles location home, Martinez — who was burned more than far more than 40 percent of his body although serving in Iraq — says one particular room is just best. Belle’s nursery “is the very best space in the house,” the proud new dad tells Individuals.
Custom created by Southern California-based Tiny Crown Interiors, Belle’s nursery combines essential style elements and sentimental individual touches.
The two-toned mix stationary crib and mix single dresser and altering table, from Young America By Stanley Furnishings Company, and the whitewashed hardwood floors by Shaw Floors provide the lamb-themed nursery with eye-catching contrast and opulent appeal.
Whilst there are stuffed animal lambs and a mini plush lamb chair in the corner where Belle can sit and look at one of the many books she received as gifts from close friends and household at the child shower, there’s also a contemporary flair incorporated into the space thanks to the taupe wallpaper on the room’s far wall, and the geranium globe pendant light in the center of the room by Posh Tots.
Slide open the mirrored closet door and it’s clear Martinez’s little lady currently has a flair for style with far more than two dozen pairs of shoes and a selection of colorful dresses to put on for any occasion.
“I have no closet space,” the Dancing with the Stars champ says, playfully groaning about the downside of sharing a home with two girls.
An additional standout of the room — and Gonzalez-Jones’s preferred spot to nurse little Belle — is the cranberry-colored Cohen glider chair and footrest, accessible at Oilo Studio.
“I really like that color,” Gonzales-Jones says, admitting “before Belle was born I’d come in right here and sit in that chair. It is so comfortable.”
At night when the couple get Belle prepared for bed, they get pleasure from the soft lighting the two wall sconces give. As they lay her down to sleep, Martinez and Gonzalez-Jones are comforted by the sight of the wall mural above Belle’s crib.

Although Belle was named right after her two aunts, the couple agreed they would spell her 1st and middle names differently so that “she’d have her own identity,” the actor, 29, explains. “It’s a way to honor our sisters and give her the names of angels.”
Now, each time the couple enters Belle’s space, they feel connected to their pasts and their future. “It’s some thing that each and every time we walk in right here, we fall in really like with it,” notes Martinez. “It’s a gorgeous space.”
