Finally — a nice change of pace from the elephants and owls that you’ve seen in a million other nursery photos. (In addition to being cute, foxes represent cleverness and alertness — nice!)
Wall decals used to be cutesy, but now they’re modern décor elements. Pick stickies that are whimsical — and don’t be afraid to experiment with design and placement. They’re easily swapped out when baby gets older.
Gray is the “it” neutral right now, but you don’t have to pair it with a bright hue. Mix different shades and patterns of gray for a look that’s simple and gender neutral, but not bland.
Sparkle and shine is A-OK for baby’s space! Detailed frames, mirrors and chandeliers add elegant touches that (surprise!) glam up a nursery.
Grainy wood and warm browns create a rugged look. Add a modern take on taxidermy (the white faux deer-head) to keep the space looking cozy, but not too lodge-like.
Maybe we have The Hunger Games to thank for this chic trend. Arrows can serve as subtle accents or as a major focal point. Either way, they’re a brave choice you can totally pull off.
Stars are always a common nursery choice, but small fiber optic lights spread across the ceiling create a look that’s more like Grand Central Station ceiling than a typical baby’s room. (Get them in this kit.)
That flat, padded piece of furniture to the right of the crib is a bonding bench, which not only fits right into this modern minimalist nursery, but it creates a cozy nook for bedtime stories, playtime and even diaper changes.
