Hudson’s Industrial Modern Nursery


Being a graphic designer I knew I wasn't going to design a typical baby nursery. I wanted a bright color pallet to start with and to use things that were personal to me yet still very eclectic and modern at the same time.

Design Inspiration

I found inspiration in whimsical decor and used London accents, a fun mix of patterns and textures, and some vintage airplanes to create this colorful room. His room also has some sweet, personal touches, like the framed painting of a bomber plane which my grandfather flew during WWII. The nursery has a very eclectic feel and was pieced together from a variety of sources.

Favorite Items

It's hard to pick one thing, but I really love the crib bedding and the airplane painting.


My advice when it comes to design is don't try to fit into a mold. Start with a color pallet and then use personal items and things you like. Try not to be so "matchy matchy" but use items that compliment each other both in color and style. And remember to have fun.
