Real Room: Conrad’s Modern Nursery

I am so excited to show you the fabulous nursery Allison Ballenger designed for her son.  It is modern, elegant and a perfectly fantastic space to care for and play with her newborn, Conrad!

The inspiration for this room was the orange, chocolate brown and cream bedding from Urban Crawl.

The crib and dresser are part of Babyletto’s Modo collection, and to the right of the crib is one of my favorite decorative accessories, the P’Kolino Clothes Tree.

I love how the area next to the window was decorated with the little bookshelf, framed photo and the adorable dog tail hooks from Ikea (if you want to find these now you’ll have to try ebay).  The saying above the doggies reads, “snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of…”! So cute and so perfect.  The rocker in the reading nook is from Carolina Cottage and the nook was personalized with the simple monogram wall decal and chocolate brown cushion.

The Uglydoll display is a fun way to decorate this wall space. I love the little orange dangling giraffe and notice the Ekorre Rocking Moose from Ikea.  This moose comes in natural and red  but they custom painted it to match!  The moose is no longer coming up on Ikea’s website, but we saw a few there last weekend so maybe if you hurry you can still pick one up!

The light fixture is very cool– the Hangin’ Around Lamp from The Land of Nod, and you can take your pick of round zebra rugs like the one in this room at

The canvases over the changing table are hand painted and a believe I spy an Oeuf bouncer on the ground to the left of that.  Talk about coordination!

Allison, you did an amazing job decorating this room for you sweet little guy!  The room is personal, creative and relaxing with a dash of color and fun.  Thank you so much for allowing us to “tour” this gorgeous space and congratulations on your beautiful baby boy 🙂

  1. I love the colour combination along with the little areas all decorated to create different areas within the same room. I love that some of the accents are hung low for little ones. I think we sometimes forget to look at it from their prospective.

  2. That’s a really great point Bevin. It’s great to think about what interesting things are at a low level. After all the room is for little ones!
