Amelia Josephine is the "Little Milk" of Jaime and Jordan Derringer of popular modern design blog Design Milk. Amelia's nursery is a modern colorful, visually-stimulating environment that at the same time oozes calm.
The entire room was built around two objects - the Eames decals and the Alexander Girard rug. They tell a funky, graphic color story that's actually not as overwhelming as I originally expected. In fact, in the end it all came together nicely.
Modern, contemporary - calm but not boring.

The crib. Hands down. It's just so cool.
Work around something like an accessory or pattern to draw inspiration for the whole room. Don't purchase the big stuff first, instead buy something you really love and build around that item. Don't be afraid to mix patterns and colors - it's good for babies!
