Lately, I’ve been seeing some gorgeous, modern ideas for baby rooms. The first time I was exposed to beautiful nursery design was when I worked in residential interior design in Lexington, Kentucky. Since I realized the possibilities of creating tasteful spaces for the little ones in my family I have kept a special watch out for modern nursery designs. Here are 7 inspiring, modern ways to decorate a baby nursery if you are expecting or just want to revamp the baby room!
Sophisticated Artwork: I’m pretty sure elephants are my spirit animal. That being said, I would never put one on my walls unless it was a tasteful, sophisticated photograph like this one of a rhino. There’s something to be said for mature artwork in children’s rooms. The best part is that it’s age and gender neutral—keep this art in the family for as long as you like!
Moroccan Rugs: Implement a simple Moroccan rug in your nursery for a soft, cozy aesthetic. This white and grey rug is neutral enough to complement any color scheme, and to keep the focus on what’s most important—the crib that holds your beautiful baby!
Mobiles: One of my favorite childhood memories is the mobile that my dad bought to hang over my crib when I was born. It was made of really simple, plane shapes that balanced each other and twirled around when there was a slight breeze from my window. This mobile is perfect for a space themed nursery—they completed the look with a star patterned rug and galaxy patterned crib bedding.
Wall Decals: These perfectly imperfect-placed triangle decals are great for creating a playful aesthetic in your nursery room. I enjoy them paired with a mid-century modern rocker and in multiple shades of neutral colors.
Swings: As much as I love the traditional rocker, and the mid-century rocker shown in the previous photo, the idea of having a hung swing seat in a nursery room is very appealing! It takes the “playful” aesthetic to a whole new level and is something that kids and adults can both enjoy! This is another piece of the nursery room that could be utilized well after the baby has outgrown their crib.
Themes: One of my favorite things in the world are themes. Themed parties, themed dessert decorations, and especially themed kids rooms! This woods-themed baby room is not necessarily a nursery, but it is comforting and inviting, like a baby room should be. I would love to have this to the side and implement a crib around the area where the photo was taken. What a fun and playful way for the baby to grow! What are some ways that you encourage healthy and playful growth in your baby room?
