Zoe’s Modern Nursery

  • wenbow

    I give you and your husband 5 stars for great design throughout this room !  My husband has been helping in any way he can as well.  Isn’t it so nice when the daddy gets in on the nursery decor?  Your colors are perfect for your goal of feminine, but not too girly.  It’s beautiful to look at!

    happy mom, I purchased the rug back in April. I checked the website and, sadly, they’re out of stock. What color are you looking for? What about this one:

  • Richelle

    Love it!  Beautiful nursery and great use of space.  You guys did an amazing job!


    Fabulous nursery!! I tried searching for the ikea rocking chair, but it didn’t come up on ikea’s website.  Did you purchase it a while ago or was it quite recent? 


    never mind! I found it!!! Congrats on your little one, by the way :)

    I LOVE your room and love the rocking chair- I’ve been looking for a cheaper but still “nice” looking option.  Where did you get the little ottoman?

  • mscott218

    Thanks, everyone! Kay8love, I bought the pouf from Tazi Designs.

    I love everything about this room it is gorgeous! I am obsessed with the print above the cot. Are you able to tell me where you got this? or is this the fabric you have framed? Also where did you get the pink wooden car on the bookshelf? Thanks :)

  • mscott218

    Gemmar, thank you so much! I bought the scarf here:

    This is where I found the car:

    Hope this helps! :)

  • gemmar

    So it’s a scarf framed? wow ! thanks so much! I love your style. I want to create a similar affect for my daughters room .Post pics of little Zoe in the room once she’s here :)

  • lawgirl

    I love this room as well!  Where did you find the drawer liners?  I’ve been looking for something like them.  Thanks!

    What a fabulous room!  I adore it all!  Question on the rug… do you think it would lay nicely on carpet?  Or better for hardwoods?  We are looking for a rug for our daughter’s room and this would be adorable, but it would be going over carpet.  Thanks!!  Again, love it all!

  • Prissa A. Putri

    love it! I wish I can get all the stuff in your nursery here in Indonesia :( … 

  • Lisa K

    Absolutely wonderful use of a small space! Love it!

  • Sara Tamburrino

    Thanks so much for putting a Safe Crib in the layout. Nothing in the crib except a fitted sheet. Bumper pads, pillows, toys, etc are not safe have caused suffocation in infants.

  • mscott218

    Thanks so much, everyone!

    This is a thin rug that should lay very nicely atop carpet. Hope it works for you!

  • Nicole-Lynn

    The rug is to die for! Super cute!

  • Molly

    Absolutely brilliant! I love your space utilization. The color is fabulous, thank you for posting all these amazing details!

  • Amanda

    Gorgeous, gorgeous! Love every inch of this room. Awesome work!

  • Michelle

    I love the book display! Can you tell me what books are shown? It looks great!

  • Molly


    Thanks, Michelle! Here they are:

    Bruno Munari’s ABCs
    The Cat At Night
    The Story Of Zachary Zween (out of print, but used copies are available)
    Seasons (by Blexbolex)
    On Top Of Spaghetti
    Pippi Longstocking
    Whistle For Willie

  • Michelle


    Thanks Molly!

  • Blair

    The room looks gorgeous and has given us so much inspiration! Can you tell me where you got the shelf piece for above the radiator? We have a radiator very similar to that next to our crib and absolutely love the idea!

  • Molly


    Thank you so much, Blair! I found a local stone showroom called Stone Surfaces in Burlington, MA that sells marble remnants. I was able to get a great deal on the marble since I only needed a smaller piece. I’m remembering walking around their stone yard, looking at remnants in the summer heat while 9 months pregnant. It was the very last element to get for Zoe’s nursery and it felt so good to finally have it all done. :)
    Best of luck to you!

  • Sarah

    This is the most beautiful room! You have done an amazing job! I LOVE it all and will be using some of your gorgeous ideas.

    Well done!

  • Molly

    Thank you so much, Sarah. You just made my night! :)

  • jojo

    Wow! Love this room! I am drooling over the orange patterned table lamp and use of the UO rug.

  • holly

    wondering if the baskets inside the expedit shelf are also from Ikea? the pjas basket?

  • Molly


    They are indeed! My 11-month-old loves pulling them out and going through the toys inside. We were doing that just this evening before bed. :)

  • Lindsay

    Now that you’ve used it a while, did you end up liking the Poang rocker?

    I never would of thought to use it but now that I’m pregnant we went to IKEA today to look and actually liked it. We may go with the regular Poang chair rather than the rocker because in store it seemed slightly challenging to get in and out. (maybe it was just the floor sample they had?).

  • Molly


    I actually don’t care for it and rarely used it. I’ve found it to be too deep/reclined for nursing comfortably (for me and my baby). Also, when she was fussy and just wanted to be held, rocked, etc. I couldn’t use my rocker – when I sit back in it her position became too much like “tummy time” and she’d get upset. However, now that she’s older (almost a year) I’ve started using it more. If I had to do it over I’d totally get the classic Poang chair because it’s more comfortable, upright, and has enough “bounce” when necessary. Just my opinion. :)

  • Ali

    Hi! I really love this nursery and you’ve inspired many ideas! Just curious – the scarf – how did you have it framed? Do you show the edges of the scarf or are they tucked under the mat/frame? Is there a mat? And if so, how many inches wide is it?

    Thanks so much – great look and great colors! Great style!!

  • Molly

    Thanks so much, Ali! The top of the scarf was stitched to a mat board. I’ll try to take measurements soon!
