If you haven’t heard of Jenna Kutcher, you should run, not walk, to her Instagram feed. Jenna is a photographer, entrepreneur, podcaster and advocate for women, body positivity, and inner truth. She has shared her pregnancy journey with the world, including fertility struggles and two devastating miscarriages. She is brave and honest, and this is why I was so excited to design her nursery.
Jenna and her husband decided not to find out the sex of the baby, so they knew they wanted a gender neutral space. Their home is eclectic and has vibes of both farmhouse and mid-century modern. She was also considering buying a crib with acrylic panels for a little extra modern touch. I had recently seen the launch of the new Pottery Barn Kid’s line, Pottery Barn Modern Baby, and they had just the perfect style for what we were going for. With PB Modern on board, the nursery came together easily and quickly! I worked with Jenna on the floor plan first, and then created a design board so she could visualize the space.

Jenna really wanted wallpaper but loved the idea of framing it inside of wall molding to give it a little extra interest. We used a great geometric wallpaper with a fun pattern and neutral tones. She also already had electrical boxes for two ceiling fixtures, which gave us the ability to really show off that wall with two flanking globe pendants.
On the other side of the room, we created a glider nook with a side table and some wall ledges to display books and art. I chose an ottoman with a contrasting pattern and a fun hexagonal shape to mirror the geometric shapes in the wallpaper on the opposite wall.
We also chose some cute stuffed animals and pillows for the room, which are hanging out in the crib (but don’t worry, they will be removed when baby comes).
We made sure to add blackout curtains in this space because it has a large window with direct sunlight. We kept the crib bedding and rug super simple, and added a few little accents around like the sheep rocker.
I always love to add plants in any nursery I design, because they add so much color and life. This one is a faux fiddle leaf fig tree in a woven basket. It really helps to finish off the space!
You can see all the photos of the space in my portfolio! Thanks again to Pottery Barn Modern Baby for all your help and to Jenna Kutcher for being such an inspiration!
