Modern Hip Baby Nursery

Modern Hip Baby Nursery

Modern Hip Baby Nursery

When designing this modern hip baby nursery for our 3rd child, we were faced with the challenge of planning a unisex room since we were keeping the sex of the baby a surprise.

After being quite disappointed in the small selection of unisex bedding for nurseries, I decided to simply create a theme based on the colors that I enjoyed and already had in the rest of my house.

Since our nursery is downstairs and off the main areas of the house, I wanted it to flow with the rest of my decor, so I chose the colors of turquoise, orange, chocolate-brown and red. We also had a four poster red crib that we had used for our other 2 children so, of course, we had to include that in the design plans as well.

As an artist, I love bright colors and contrast. I especially love the way white accents pop off of bold primary colors.

After finally deciding on the fabrics, my mother and I made all of the bedding and other accents around the room.

All of the furniture in the nursery is from my previous nurseries but we gave some of it a face lift. I had the rocking arm chair reupholstered in chocolate brown suede and repainted the antique side table in white for a "baroque" look.

I painted the room a soft but bright shade of pale blue, then the window seat box chocolate brown. I knew that after the baby was born, I would be ordering a name decal in either red or pink.

I choose a white shag sheep skin rug for the floor in a circle shape to mimic the circle I painted on the wall over the crib. I found the little yellow chair at a flea market and the rest of the items were from boutiques around town.

I wanted to keep the wall decor simple and clean since the colors of the room were so bold. I left one wall open to place a large blown up canvas print of the baby after he/she arrived.

I love this room not only because it was a super fun project while anticipating the arrival of our baby, but it also reflects my personal style at this time in my life and all of the colors and elements that I have incorporated in the rest of our house.

Thanks for letting me share!
