Ryder’s Modern Rustic Outdoor Inspired Nursery


A modern rustic outdoor inspired nursery with a reclaimed wood wall and woodland wall mural.  I wanted the room to be soothing and fun but still be something that he could grow with over time.

Design Inspiration

My husband and I both love the outdoors and finding adventures.  I tried to bring the outdoors in for our little, looking to our local wildlife for inspiration. I hope the room inspires him to want to be outside and explore as he grows up.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is a mixture of modern and rustic.  I like to keep major parts of the room, paint and large furniture neutral, and then add lots of texture and fun accessories.  I like to layer things and mix different elements of wood, metal, and softer items.

Project Details

White Feather Garland: DIY

Mural: DIY

Minnow Bucket/ Lantern: Antique/belonged to Grandfather

Favorite Items

The wood wall and mural are my favorites, but I also love the ceiling light.  I think lighting is often overlooked and it can make such a big impact on the feel of a room.


I think that you should only decorate with things you love.  Especially in a nursery, you will be spending lots of time rocking, feeding and playing with your little one and want to enjoy and feel relaxed in this space.  I think it's great to try to incorporate everyday items into the decor.  Things like books and toys can be decorative and functional.

Lindsay- Thank you! I designed and hand painted the mural. I just used various shades of grey craft paints for the mural and the wall color is silver birch by Behr. :)
