Coldplay Inspired Nursery


This space was created for our first child. We didn't know the gender of the baby, so we had to come up with a design that suited either a boy or girl and wanted something that could grow with them. It was indeed a labour of love! The feature wall was executed by my parents, and let's just say they (my husband included) thought I was crazy when I showed them the idea I had in mind. All the hard work paid off though; we couldn't be happier with the end result.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for this nursery was the band Coldplay. The album artwork for Mylo Xyloto specifically. The graffiti is vibrant and provided a broad colour pallet that is gender neutral.

Decorating Style

I like to mix bold colours and patterns with modern furnishings and neutral paint colours. Go bold in the accents so you can change them when your heart desires.

Favorite Items

My favourite item is the Babyletto crib. I had always wanted this crib for our nursery. It's clean lines and modern design are timeless. If you ask my husband, his favourite item is the glider. He chose this one because it reclines, and while I didn't think that would matter, we have both used that feature almost every night since our son was born!


Don't be afraid of colour! Every time we are in that nursery it makes us happy; whether it's 3am or 2pm. Also don't design a space that will have to be changed when the child turns 1. A few simple changes and this nursery is easily ready for a toddler!

    Great style! This’ll be good for years. I would love some of these elements (like the big chair and walls) in my room!
