Ellia’s Mod Nursery


A cheerful, fun and modern baby girl's nursery, with touches of whimsy that don't necessarily scream BABY in coral, aqua, grey and white.

Design Inspiration

I saw a chevron wall on a design blog last year that I knew had to be part of the nursery.  Everything else was based around that focal wall.

Decorating Style

Fairly modern with touches of retro mod thrown in.

Hard to choose just one!  It would be the MadebyGirl alphabet name print, the custom owl clock from Etsy, and the custom abacus from etsy.


Don't be afraid to go bold!  And when you choose an "out of the box" color combo, Etsy is a lifesaver!

I as well am into chevron patterns and would like to incorporate patterns into our nursery.  I was wondering where I can find that wall paper or is that painted on the wall?
