This modern aztec nursery is a perfect place for a sweet little girl to call her own. With a modern, aztec feel to the space and the addition of bright colors in an otherwise black and white space, we love bringing the unexpected into her room through color, texture and meaningful items.

Design Inspiration

The arrow inspired colorful crib sheet began the design of this space. With black and white being the base color scheme, we popped colors of pink, gold and turquoise through the crib sheet color scheme around the room.

Decorating Style

This space is a very modern and contemporary style with a touch of aztec.

Project Details

The vintage painted arrows from GallivantingGirls Etsy shop are mounted to the crib wall provide interest and curiosity. A homemade feather mobile made by the baby girls'  mother hangs above the changing table, bringing joy to the baby girl's eyes every time she gazes up at it. A white painted accent wall with gray arrow decals from TheLovelyWall Etsy shop is the showstopper in the room behind the crib. Our favorite collage of special items and phrases graces the wall above the West Elm glider for a constant reminder of verses and words of happiness. A homemade dreamcatcher from WhiteFarm MD Etsy Shop is one of these special items. The bold black and white aztec rug from Society 6 grounds the room for a base of black and white color scheme. We mixed in some wood tones with hand stained arrows from CustomWoodDesign75 Etsy shop. To pop a splash of color, some of our favorite patchwork poufs from World Market were added on either side of the crib. Lastly, the custom crib sheet from woolfwithme Etsy shop is what began all the design in this lovely space.

Favorite Items

Our favorite item is a tie between the handmade feather mobile above the changing table and the vintage painted arrows mounted on the crib wall.


Less is more ;) We went for a minimal, clean modern look and love how it turned out!

    I noticed your comment about the rug Ashley. I searched everywhere for the rug and ended up finding one that was almost exactly the same on cafepress.com. I think I just searched for aztec rugs. It wasn’t hard to find. I tried to copy a lot of this room, so if you need anything else in the room, I could probably tell you where to go!
