The perfect gender neutral and modern boho nursery
I was able to build almost everything in this nursery myself for our rainbow baby boy. My inspiration came from living in the southwest while also being fascinated with the moon.
As soon as I started thinking about my nursery, I knew that I’d want a natural, warm & earthy colour palette (which has to include some of my favourite colour, Mustard!) in a modern boho style, with a hint of a desert theme. We found out we were having another baby girl, so I wanted to incorporate a hint of dusty rose colour through the room also. I love the softness of rainbow/arch shapes, so you’ll see I’ve incorporated hints of this shape throughout. I also knew I needed to include special pieces from one of my favourite brands, Boho Baby Heaven; a very small family business, run by a mother-daughter duo based in Hungary. Mariann & Inez specialize in bohemian style home/nursery decor & toys, all made completely by hand. I shared my ideas about the theme of the nursery them, and I knew they would create the perfect pieces to suit. They exceeded my expectations. These pieces are all so special to me, they evoke such joy & have tied together my nursery space so perfectly. Inez did a guest blog post previously featuring the creative & design process of these pieces. I’ve tried to keep a repetition of elements throughout this room; using light wood & natural elements such as rattan & cane, with the warm earthy colours, and pops of mustard & dusty rose. Before Maisie arrived, I would spent quiet moments in here sitting in the papasan chair whilst sipping on a tea. The golden afternoon sun diffusing softly through the curtains; to me, the room feels warm, happy & completely calm. It’s my little nursery oasis! Our two cats seem to agree as I catch them both sleeping happily in here every day.
We named our son’s middle name after my father’s middle name “Sol,” is the reason why we chose a sunshine theme. We wanted something boho but masculine. Natural wood colors with rust, mustard, blue and orange colors to represent sunsets in AZ where we currently live! I love the simplicity of the metallic gold sun wall decals, and using mustard colors in the details of his room really allowed the sun decals to pop out more. We love it!
When I was pregnant with my first child, I dreamed of a neutral baby’s room that would stay beautiful through the years. So I went for this boho-style nursery by adding soft colors such as: white, black, beige and a slight touch of green as seen in the plants, handmade knitted blanket and teddy bear. It is therefore easy to create a room using second-hand and DIY accessories.
To make it work, you only need to add a few plants here and there such as this beautiful artificial bird of paradise, also called the strelitzia plant. It will really create a nice tropical vibe in the room. You could as well go for a small houseplant just like I did on top of a dresser or the baby’s changing table.
I must say another good purchase was that black and white playrug from Clement. It allows your baby to stretch and play while being comfortable at the same time. Make sure you get comfy pajamas as well like these ones from Aubainerie.
I’m in love with the final result ! Yes, it is absolutely possible to make an affordable yet beautiful nursery, here is the proof !!!
A modern Spanish twist on a sweet playroom. This space has seating for seven, storage for tons of toys, an art station with supply storage built-in, and a lot of color!

We were converting the room from our soon to be two year old son’s into a new baby girl’s nursery! We didn’t want to paint and this wallpaper was the perfect match for the color on the other three walls. We added a few other accents like the pink rug, mint pillow and Llama stuffed animal to tie into the wallpaper.
