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!

My Modern Nursery #89: Morning Sunrise Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I cringe when people act like green and yellow are the only two gender neutral nursery options. I think that a majority of our nursery boards are gender neutral, but I’ve really found people who think that if they’re not going with pink or blue, their only wall color choices are yellow or green.

I work with shades of green from time to time, but I generally stay away from yellow. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with it, I just had an overdose of yellow a few years back. We moved into this house when I was 6 months pregnant. It was clean and move-in ready, but all the walls throughout (minus the bedrooms and bathrooms) were painted a sunny yellow. It was a bright shade that made it look like the morning sun was shining right in, even on a cloudy day, but it was impossible to decorate around. After about a year we were able to paint it all away and I’ve shied away from yellow walls since.

Despite my color overdose, yellow is a great color if you choose it. Morning Sunrise from Lullaby Paints is a nice soft, buttery shade that is a beautiful backdrop for this fresh nursery.

If you’re going to go with this scheme and need more pieces and options to fill the space, there are lots more perfect choices on our Pinterest board!

I chose Royal Blue as our wall color this month because it’s been a while since I used a dark shade and I thought it would be a great challenge.  As it turned out, this was an incredible color to work with and I love what you can do with it.  It’s so rich and regal.

My Modern Nursery: The Baby’s Big Boy Room

Before you know it, the baby has grown out of his perfect nursery and you have to move him on to a big boy room.  This was so hard for me and while I put it off as long as I could, we finally made the transition at the beginning of the year.  Even though this isn’t a nursery, you can easily turn this space back by simply changing out the bed for a crib.  I though this worth sharing to show how the design boards translate into a real space, plus I’m excited to share the photos of how his room turned out!

Nuggie's Room

1- I collected decor and pieces from some of my favorite artists and designers–
March Owl Illustration from Gingiber (similar)
Cool Cool Clock from Little Nest- $150
Lovely, Love My Family Print in Yellow from Tuesday Morning- $25
You Are My Sunshine from Petit Collage
2-  Here in Florida, fans in the bedroom are pretty much a necessity, so we forego the fancy light fixture for the most stylish fan we can find. The Minka-AireConcept II Flush Mount Ceiling Fan ($270) fit the bill.
3- I love the Magnetic World Puzzle English Edition from Janod as art as well as a toy- $45
4- Light Bulb Garlands from Oeuf- $64
5- Just because it was time to get rid of our Oeuf crib didn’t mean I wanted to quit Oeuf, so my furniture choice was a no-brainer.  I went with the Merlin Three Drawer Dresser and
6- a Sparrow Twin Bed and Nightstand.  The Tulip Lamp was a vintage find on Fab.com and I adore it.
7- I picked the Sailor Yellow Sheets as well as the Regatta Yellow Sheets from Unison. They also come in crib sizes.  I like to mix and match the narrower stripes with the wider ones.
8- Pierre the Bunny from blabla kids is a perfect companion for any child, mine included- $56
9- Herman is a sweet plush owl from Sleepy King and is a treasure.
10- We used the same rug we had in the nursery.  It was from Ikea several years ago.  Even though we’ve changed the colors of the room, the rug still works perfectly.
Finally, the Monte Como Glider is one of the most comfortable and beautiful seats ever.  Just because you don’t have a baby to rock doesn’t mean you have to give up a great spot to sit while in their room.

As I planned the space, I used Pinterest to collect all my ideas and you can see more there.  I finally put the final item in last week and so I just have to tidy up.  Soon I’ll post photos of the room all finished!

Sebastian’s Black and White Room as a Nursery

You’ve been drooling over the latest SISSY + MARLEY project all weekend, and now I’m going to let you know where to find all the cuteness to use in your own homes.  Sebastian’s big boy room is a beautifully put together black and white modern space for a growing little boy, but the design can easily be adapted for use as a nursery.

SISSY + MARLEY black and white nursery

1- The Kids poster by MiniWilla (sold out)
Don’t Grow Up art print from the birth of cool prints- $15+
2- LEGO Kids’ 9005718 Super Heroes Batman Alarm Clock- $30
Panda Bear from Colette Bream- $54
3- Lucky Star wallpaper by SISSY + MARLEY for Jill Malek
4- Large Frame Light from Iacoli & McAllister- $595
Cat Girl from burntfeather- $28
LEGO Storage Head Small, Skeleton Face- $25
5- Half Moon Basket from Ferm Living- $80
6- Campaign II Painted Crib from ducduc- $1800
Blah Blah Large Throw from Donna Wilson- $300
7- Cloud Pillow from Colette Bream- $68
Mayfair Steamer Trunk Chest from Restoration Hardware- $2600
8- Monte Joya Rocker- $995
Componibili Round Storage Modules by Kartell- $140
9- Olin Black Rug- $300
Giant Lego Brick 2×4- $35
10- Balthazar from Lucky Boy Sunday- $120
Pale Nulle from Lucky Boy Sunday- $138

The desk in Sebastian’s room is the Micke desk from Ikea, a steal for $50.  It’s paired with a stylish black Panton chair ($310) in black.  For the nursery version I used a Monte Joya rocker instead of the desk and chair combo.

The Bed in the big boy version is a Campaign Youth Bed from ducduc, so we just used the Campaign II Crib instead.

The mustache poster is from MiniWilla though I can’t find that exact one anywhere (similar), and the lightning bolt was handmade by Sebastian’s nonna.

The Don’t Grow Up print is from the birth of cool (left), but it’s very similar to this Don’t Grow Up Poster from Mini and Maximus (right).

hmmm2...

Same with the Cat Girl print from burntfeather (left).  It’s very like the Bandit Girl poster from Mini and Maximus (right).  Just an FYI.  I believe burntfeather worked with Mini and Maximus on this.

Hmmm...

I’m just getting started with this black and white stuff!

My Modern Nursery #84: Gray, Pink and Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We’re so happy to continue our nursery board series with Lullaby Paints this year, but we’re doing it a little differently this time!  While we’re still starting with ultra-safe, eco-friendly paint from Lullaby Paints, this time we’ve been using Pinterest boards to collect sources and inspiration as we work to develop the final product below.  I really hope you’ve been following along this month as this Gray, Pink & Yellow Nursery Design came together.

This month we chose a medium shade of gray called Pewter.  It’s part of the color collection created exclusively for Wayfair.com.  Gray is THE hottest color for modern nurseries and Pewter is dark enough to be a bold choice but light enough to not make the room look gloomy.  With bright pink and yellow accents and white furnishings, this room is anything but dark.
