When designing Atticus' nursery I wanted to go beyond the usual wild animals and fire trucks and channel a casual mod look with sleek furnishings and a bright yet relaxed color palette. 

Design Inspiration

Inspiration came from the oval Stokke crib and the colors in the Robin Motif bedding

Decorating Style

Eclectic Contemporary with a hint of Mid-Century Modern

Project Details

Missoni for Target milk crates

DIY dresser and side table were sanded and painted using No VOC paint. Hardware was also painted with zebra stripes


Favorite Items

The Stokke Sleepi Crib hands down. It is on casters and can be moved out of the way for play time and fits through doorways so we move it in and out of the nursery.


Go with your gut! Just because something needs to be refinished, doesn't mean you shouldn't put it in your child's nursery. Take inspiration from your surroundings and design a room that can grow with your child. You will be spending many sleepless nights in a rocking chair so keep that in mind when designing a space that is calming for the both of you.

    I just love how grown up this room looks. Definitely an easy transition to a toddler room when time comes. Great job!

    I’m not sure if I like the colors here. I mean the room and the pieces look great, but without the right color it looks kind of old to me.
