My Modern Nursery #90: Dreamy Dark Purple Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

Lullaby Paints collaborates with so many great brands to create special color collections. When I found out they had a selection of paints for Finn + Emma, I had to have a go with one of the beautiful shades. Skipping over my obvious favorites, Light Grey and Clearly Aqua, I opted for the more daring but aptly named, Dark Purple. While it’s a deep color, there’s a lot of gray in Dark Purple, giving it a wonderful, dusty, neutral look. It’s meant, of course, to coordinate perfectly with Finn + Emma’s Flower pattern, but we only used that as a jumping off point, as you can see.

As usual, not all our finds for this color scheme made the final design. If you want to see all the amazing options that we couldn’t include, be sure to visit the Finn + Emma Dark Purple Nursery Inspiration board on Pinterest!


1- Madison Park Richmond Vertical Stripe Solid Window Panel- $40 each (2 shown)
Authentic Models Globe Mobile- $100
2- David Trubridge Floral 400 Pendant Lamp- $340
3- Dark Purple Lullaby Paint for Finn + Emma- $59 a gallon

Surreal Abstract Portrait, Minimalist Art – Peekaboo from Cassia Beck Collage- $17+
4- John Bucklin’s Wyoming Wildflowers- $650
5- Harper Dresser and Topper in Kelly Green- $1200
6- Harper Crib in Kelly Green- $1000

If you’re looking for something fun, I know you’ll be happy with these area rugs from Flor.

Real Room Tour: Hudson’s Toddler Transition

I love this example of a simple, clean nursery with sophisticated modern accessories. Designed by Melissa from WINTER*DAISY, it’s a perfect home for any little boy.


Gray stars and gray elephants (like Baby Elephant from The Animal Print Shop and the Elephant Push Toy from Manny & Simon), are combined with soothing shades of dark blue.



The driftwood mobile is a striking focal point over the Oeuf Classic Toddler Bed.



Thanks for sharing your latest project with us Melissa! Can’t wait to see what you do next!
