Pastel Geometric Nursery

Designing nurseries presents an interesting challenge. How do you create a space that reflects your own personal style (you are, in fact, going to be spending countless hours in there at all times of the day and night) while also addressing the fact that the room will be inhabited by an infant? And if that isn't enough, you also need to think about how the room will age alongside your child... unless you want to be totally re-designing the space every three years. Actually, that doesn't sound too bad after all...


1. Artwork

Artwork for nurseries and kids rooms does NOT need to be cartoonish! I am obsessing over these precious baby animal prints by Sharon Montrose of The Animal Print Shop. OMG, there is full serious of cats. Go check it out. SRSLY.

2. Rug

This rug is the perfect blend of baby-friendly pastel and modern geometric pattern. I could absolutely see this in everything from a living or dining room to a nursery or teen's room! The pattern hides spills well, too!

3. Walnut Crib

I am def a proponent of using walnut anywhere and everywhere and a nursery is no exception! Along with being super gorgeous, this crib is totally gender neutral - so it can be passed onto the next babe. It is also refreshing to see something other than white on a crib. The richness and depth of the wood brings some sophistication to this nursery design.

4. Rocking Chair

The rocking chair is perhaps the most important thing in the room to choose for YOU, not just for baby. This one is modern and aesthetically pleasing, but it is absolutely vital to make sure you are comfortable in any chair you choose. Well designed rooms should look beautiful and function flawlessly for your needs! 

5. Accessories

Have fun with pillows, garlands, mobiles, bedding, window treatments and stuffed animals. A mix of textures, colors and patterns will stimulate your baby's growing mind and will give you something cute to look at during the 2AM shift.

Get the Look: Bohemian Modern

I am a huge proponent of the sentiment that great design should be available to anyone who seeks it out. I want everyone to know that a well-designed interior does not necessarily require a massive budget, it just requires a bit of thoughtful creativity. If you see a style you like, you do NOT have to wait until you have the budget for a complete design overhaul. You can start by simply incorporating elements of that style until you have achieved the look you want! 

In this first installment of our new "Get the Look" series, I am showing you how to achieve the Bohemian Modern look for $100, $500, or $1000!

Hope you find these tips useful! Remember that Interior Design doesn't have to be inaccessible - with a bit of research and some creative budgeting, you can achieve the look you want (even if it happens in phases)!
