Modern Nursery


A modern nursery with a slight nautical twist.

Design Inspiration

Clean lines. Simple.

Decorating Style

Keep it simple.

Project Details

The pictures above the changing table were less than $20 total. Three were plain wood for $1 each at a craft store and I painted them. Another picture was a gift bag from Target that I framed. Rocking chair was a DIY furbished project from Craigslist and I spent $25 total for the chair and fabric. Hanging light from Ikea.  Crib by Babyletto. Bookshelf from Target. Clear lamp from Home Goods. Sailboats on the mobile were handmade by my sister.

Paint colors are Coventry Gray and Polar Bear White.

Favorite Items

The striped accent wall.


You don't have to spend a fortune to get a modern room!

I like the gray and white with hints of greens. It's soothing with a hint of freshness.

Thanks, Andrea! That is what we were going for. Soothing, fresh, relaxing, simple.

Very simple yet nice and elegant room. And I just adore that Mike Wakowski lamp!

Thanks, Jillian! The lamp is actually plain and I got it at Home Goods. Then I purchased the Mike Wazowski stuffed animal at the Disney store and stuck him underneath. That way, if my baby boy doesn't like Monster's Inc when he's older we can put something else under the lamp.
