Gorgeous, Modern Nurseries

Before you lay the plan for your mod space, take a peek at these minimalistic nurseries — full of clean lines, subtle colors, funky-cool accents, and not a Winnie-the-Pooh in sight.

Tons of textures

Add texture to baby’s space with a shag carpet, a multi-dimensional shelf of artwork and a smooth floor (easy for clean up!). A leather-backed chair looks funky and cool in this space, plus it adds tons of function for middle-of-the-night feedings.

Colorful carpet

Your nursery will be filled with all the baby basics, but a chic, stylish rug is one place you don’t need to stick with a baby-friendly buy. Choose a rich, colorful carpet to anchor the room and introduce personality into the space. Contrast a modern, white wall and accessories with an ikat, paisley, patterned or vintage find.

Natural wood

Not all wood needs to be painted. Add a natural wood dresser or crib to your nursery mix to keep the room grounded. It’s an effortless way to introduce warmth and color into the room.

Mixing centuries

If your house is a melting pot of designs from different eras, why should baby’s room be any different? Choose a modern, sleek crib and accessorize the rest of the room with furniture from other decades, like a mid-century rocker and a 60s-inspired pouf.

Shades of grey

Forget traditional blue, pink, yellow or green in baby’s nursery, and instead use a neutral, earthy grey (in the rug, lighting fixture and accessories here). Using several shades of gray adds interest to baby’s room without being overwhelming.

Mod accents

In place of a free-standing stuffed animal like you’ll see in many traditional nurseries, try shopping for functional room décor, like a white elephant that doubles as a décor piece and a cute seat.

Splashes of white

In this room, the white walls, white furnishings and cozy white rug do all the talking — and the colorful accessories only add to the room’s fresh design. If you’re worried about projectile vomit, spit ups and stains, opt for a dark cream.

Traditional touches

Two-toned walls are making huge debut (and we’re loving it!). Mix-and-match white and something bold, like this dark gray to add a bit of traditional style to a modern crib and rocking horse.
