Modern Baby Boy’s Nursery


Modern Blue/Brown Boy's Nursery with several diverse design elements.

Design Inspiration

After seeing all of the great contemporary children's furniture that is available, I knew I wanted a modern nursery. When I found the rug for the room at, it served as my inspiration for the colors and design for the rest of the room. I covered one wall in fabric to cover an existing mural that I wasn't fond of in our rental home.

Decorating Style

Clean, modern design that's out of the box.

Project Details

I wasn't able to add color to the walls due to the fact that we are in a rental home, so I added color through fabrics, furniture, stuffed animals and other design elements. I found the Sahara Crib and rocker/recliner at The NurseryWorks dresser was a floor model that I bought at a discount since from a retailer. The cable shelving came from Container Store.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room is the dresser that I hope will carry him beyond his baby and toddler years.

    Thank you for the comments. I had to say that our new baby boy, 3 months now, loves his big green monkey! He smiles at it when I’m changing his diaper. He’s very soft and squishy. I’m sure Grayson will love carrying him around, once the monkey isn’t bigger than him!

    I would much rather see color in fabrics and accent pieces than on the walls anyway. I think some people go way overboard with paint in a nursery. I also like the fact that you didn’t cover the windows. Even with shutters or low light levels some people still smother a window to death. It would have been too much drapery in your room with the panel behind the crib.

    I think that you should do more of those paintings that you have on the corner there, that is if you painted it.  I think those were one of the best elements of this room.

    Am not sure brown would be a good color though.  And I think this room has too much browns… but that’s just me :)

    I find this room very warm.  I like the overall feel, but the rug takes the cake!  I think that Grayson would have a whole lot of fun crawling on it :)

    But please do get rid of that hideous green monkey ;)
