Hugh’s Modern Nursery

Creating a nursery for our first child made for an exciting DIY project in our newly adopted city of Charlotte, North Carolina. As architecture and art enthusiasts (Mom is an architectural historian), we favor clean lines, abstract forms, and neutral hues with pops of color. Using many items we already owned, including artwork and textiles by family and friends, and a few newly-purchased “baby” items, like a crib and changing table accessories, we created a cool, modern space that any child (or adult) would love. The best part of the room? We managed to stay within our $1000 budget!
