What happens when mid-century modernites find out their having a baby? They start planning the ultimate modern nursery, of course! Stefanie and Reed Smith are self-proclaimed modern thrifters - always looking for the deal of the mid-century! With a budget of $1,500 they set out to create a bright, airy nursery. Enjoy!
I was initially attracted to owls and based them loosely on the inspiration for the room. We had recently just moved to a new house when we found out we were having a baby. Even though we knew she was going to be a girl, I decided to use the faded seafoam as an hommage to the old house (the home she was conceived in) to give the room lightness.
Mid-century modern, minimal with a vintage twist. I tend to lean towards a bright, clean and airy element with a touch of grounded sophistication and texture. I like modern design that is classic and timeless - and never fussy. When mid-century modern is done right it can be paired with any style. Try it, you'll see!

The image with the tee-pee is a glimpse at the room "in use" now. Don't worry if over time you decide to move things around a bit as you get to know the lay of the land. The room will grow with your baby - that's the test of a real nursery! As long as you have all of the pieces and seperately they look good - together they'll be fantastic!
