This little nursery is such a perfect blend of modern and rustic elements. Things like reclaimed wood and unique worn metal details are mixed with bold color and a faux taxidermy too. We designed this room the grow with the baby boy so we choose some more mature items that could be used later on.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration from this nursery started with the bicycle print that I found at Homegoods. I knew right away that this print would set the theme for the room -- modern and rustic.

Don't be afraid to go bold with the wall color just make sure to always have the white trim and ceiling to brighten the space. Bring in natural elements such as reclaimed wood through out the space to add the rustic feel. to achieve the modern feel add some industrial elements and metal materials.

    Can you tell me the paint color you used here? I love the fact that is doesn’t look black at low light even though it is a Navy.

    Thanks so much for your time in responding.
