Fun modern nursery for our little girl.

Design Inspiration

Clean, crisp, white cribs with fun pops of color always caught my eye so I was inspired to create my own version.

Decorating Style

Modern, clean, crisp design.

Project Details

A lot of things were DIY or Etsy which is definitely up my alley.  We saved a lot of money that way and also had fun finding the perfect thing in a more creative way than just swiping the ol credit card.  I think we ended up with a fun whimsy mod look.  I loved looking at Project Nursery and Apartment Therapy's OhDeeDoh.

Favorite Items

The pouf from Etsy, the Ikea pendant light, iconic rocker, the Dwell bedding, the mobile I made for her that she loves looking at


Do your research and shop around.  Don't just settle for things in big box stores.  Be creative and have a sense of humor - it's a kid's room after all!

    I love that pink canvass with the pear negative space you have there… and those shelves are awesome.  Where did you get that lighting fixture near the window?

    I LOVEEEE that you thought of painting the bottom of the crib and the dresser… best idea ever! We have been looking at this same crib and I loved it, but wished the color was different on the bottom and we are doing a modern grey/white nursery so I’m so glad that I saw this post… and the dresser, SO CUTE! I never in a million years would have guessed walmart… I had my eye on a similar looking modern one that had a hefty price tag of over $900 and loves yours ever more… SCORE! I’ll now be getting these two pieces.. thank you for sharing!

    Question: Was it easy to paint? (The bottoms come off right?) And what type of paint did you use?

    @marls04:  The white giraffe is Jonathan Adler and the bench is from IKEA but is actually a media cabinet.  We made it into a bench ourselves by wrapping IKEA fabric around plywood.

    @MrsDuffmyster:  the bookshelf is from IKEA

    @lutis:  thanks!  It was easy to paint.  We sanded it first and primed the base.  We used Graham Ceramic paint and it worked beautifully.  I think as long as you prepare it by sanding/priming you could use almost any type of paint and it would work fine.  We did two coats to ensure good coverage.  Good luck and have fun w/ your nursery!

    I love your gray walls. I’ve been looking for the right kind of gray. Could you share the brand/color of wall paint?

    The shelf next to the crib, I know it’s from Ikea but what is it called?
    I’m having trouble finding it.
