The neutral nursery trend is still one of my all-time favorites. It’s so soothing and relaxing, and there is so much you can do outside of white and ivory. In this neutral bohemian nursery, we ended up using a fair amount of color, but it still has an overall neutral look. This room has high ceilings and big windows, so we had a lot of natural light to work with. We started by using a modern wallpaper in a subtle pattern that wouldn’t overwhelm the space. After much deliberation, we landed on the Delicate Herringbone wallpaper—I love how it came out!
Next, we needed to choose the nursery furniture. My client had already seen a light wood crib that she loved, so we paired that with the coordinating changing table. The light wood has a rustic bohemian feel even though the shape of it is modern—this fit perfectly with the client’s home. The glider is a more traditional style, which helps to balance the modern crib, and the soft gray fabric works perfectly with the gray in the wallpaper.
Because of the very high ceilings, we went with custom blackout curtains to really make the room feel elegant. If you look closely, you’ll see that we used mixed metals for the hardware! The grommets on the curtains are black (to balance the small touches of black in the room), and the rods are gold to add warmth. There are also sheer roll down shades underneath for optimal flexibility.
On the opposite wall, we used the light wood changing table and tray and added a sweet little animal themed mirror above it. While the crib wall is large, there were two doors on the dresser wall so we didn’t have too much space here. My client loves dried florals, so we added some dried palm leaves and dried pampas to give the room that bohemian vibe.
One of my favorite parts of this nursery is the large neutral rug. It’s super soft and cozy and adds so much texture to the overall design. We also added a faux sheepskin in the corner for even more texture (and it’s just the softest thing ever!). And of course, there’s plenty of greenery. I’m a big believer in plants for the nursery, real or faux! These both happen to be faux since they won’t require any maintenance.
The dried floral piece above the crib was inspired by the florals that my client used at her baby shower. She had saved it, but it was too small, so she had her florist create a large piece that was similar to install above the crib. It has the same gorgeous earthy colors that coordinate with the rust color crib sheet and mustard yellow pillow. It makes such a statement!
