Navy & White Modern Nursery


I knew I didn't want a super themed, matchy-matchy nursery, so I picked out a color scheme and tried to create a clean cut, comfortable room.

Design Inspiration

I found Project Nursery, Etsy, and Pinterest to be great sources of inspiration.  I think our nursery is a mix of ideas found on those sites, pieced together!

Favorite Items

I love the pop of color and fun the giraffes bring as well as the navy knobs on the dresser. I adore the non-cutesy name letters above the crib as well!


*As my space for our nursery was small, making sure I had the right measurements and dimensions before buying and assembling the furniture was a must.  I knew that if my husband spent hours putting the crib and dresser together, it better fit (as disassembling it and returning it would be a HUGE pain!)

*In trying to stay on somewhat of a budget, I bought big ticket items (furniture, bedding, etc.) on sale and/or with extra percentage off coupons (Babies R Us, Ikea, Pottery Barn,etc.) and splurged on items I just HAD to have (the specific font name letters for example).

*If I couldn't find what I wanted (or the desired item was out of my price range), I made it myself.  It took more time, but I created and printed the framed prints, ribbon lamp/lampshade,  and also recovered the storage ottoman with the navy striped fabric.

*Register for items you want to use in your nursery - I found my registry to be the best for this (as friends bought me my beloved tall and rocking giraffes from well as my changing pad, covers, etc.).

*As both my husband and I are tall, I put a little extra thought into having a taller crib and higher dresser/changing area so we couldn't have to be bending down all the time!

I love the prints above the dresser. What sizes are they and/or what size are the frames?
