My Modern Nursery #97: Ballerina Pink Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

This month on Facebook, I took an informal poll asking you which rug to choose to go with our color of the month, Ballerina Pink. I often like to use a rug as the color palette for a space (including in my own home), so rug choice was really going to influence the feel of the space.

Help me decide… which rug would you choose?

Posted by Buy Modern Baby on Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Well, the results were a TIE, with half of you preferring the “Soft and Muted” option, and half preferring “Bold and Bright”. As a result, I took it both ways for you! First, the one I prefer is “Bold and Bright”. I like how the pink walls aren’t what stands out in the space.

10- Flavia Flamingo- $24

Then so many of you really liked the Shapes Dhurrie Rug, so while I kept all the bones the same, the different colors of the accessories make the design completely different.

Nursery Nook Number 1

Do full nursery boards overwhelm you? Don’t have a separate room that can be entirely devoted to baby? Or are you really practical and don’t want to devote a lot of space and money on an elaborate nursery plan? I hear you, I feel you and I’ve got you covered. I call it the “nursery nook.” This can be a bedroom shared with a sibling, a corner of mom and dad’s room, half the home office or even a well-ventilated closet.

The nursery nook should cover three main functions– sleeping, sitting (snuggling/reading/feeding), and changing– but you need to do it with at most 2 pieces of furniture. Tricky? Only a tiny bit. So here’s how you might handle these three functions… Sleep in a crib, sit propped up in bed and use a small changing table. Or you could use a compact crib, sit in a rocker and change baby on a blanket on the floor. You may like co-sleeping, change baby on a dresser top and add a comfy glider to the room. See how this work?

For our first sample nursery nook (I imagine this one is incorporated into a master or guest bedroom), we used a full sized crib, a small rocker and you can change baby on a blanket or towel on the floor or bed.  As you can see, using just a pair of key pieces and a handful of accessories (starting with two that we’ve already blogged about this week), your nursery nook can be picture perfect in no time.

My Modern Nursery #97: Hidden Path Green Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I always like using green for a nursery. It’s one of the most popular gender neutral choices and there are so many beautiful shades to choose from. Shades of green can be paired with any color, but unless you’re decorating for Christmas, you might want to avoid red. Hidden Path is a medium shade of green with plenty of gray in it. It’s a relaxing, modern shade that’s welcome for spring and will stay cool and fresh all summer long.

Starting with Ferm Living’s Robot Bedding, we repeated the robotic theme without going overboard with it. If you like the robots, we have lots more options in the Hidden Path Nursery Inspiration board on Pinterest.

My Modern Nursery #96: Plum Berry Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

Lullaby Paints served up a real challenge this month– using a shade of red for our March inspiration board. Fortunately, there were several to choose from, and this purply, brown shade that’s actually called Fresh Grape Juice, was the one I thought was cozy enough for a nursery. It actually reminds me of the color my parents use in their bedroom and it really is a warm and comfortable bedroom color. It’s even pretty close to Marsala, the 2015 Pantone color of the year, so it’s totally on trend.

The design really took off when I found the “Brooklyn” print by Anna See, and the rest of the ideas developed on our Plum Berry Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board. If you like the look we’ve put together, you can find lots more products to complete your Plum Berry nursery there!

My Modern Nursery #95: French Blue Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

For our latest nursery board with Lullaby Paints, I selected French Blue. It’s a beautiful, versatile blue that can be used with many decor styles. French Blue is bright enough to make an impact but not so bold that it’s dark or overwhelming. Obviously, I ignored the “French” part of the name and not surprisingly steered far away from toile patterns. Instead, I used bold, bright, modern colors and shapes.

If you enjoy this scheme, please visit the French Blue Nursery Inspiration Pinterest board for more items to consider. You can complete your own space with additional options from the board.

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!
