My Modern Nursery #82: Jessica’s Nursery for Baby #2!

As a second-time mom expecting baby boy number two in early June, I knew that I wanted to come up with a beautiful nursery design again. But this time, the focus was on simple, modern design with strong organization and a very comfortable chair.

I now know how quickly children grow and realize that I’ll be transitioning baby into a big boy bed sooner than I can imagine. I chose a color palette of a soft teal/aqua paired with all sorts of neutrals. Black, white and grey make up most of our accent colors, but I’m adding a bit of yellow as well. I think I’ll be able to easily create a big-boy room in a year or two with this base. After changing the room design multiple times, I went back to my roots. I love clean modern design with just a touch of whimsy. Fun throw pillows and a great mobile add just the right amount of sweetness to an otherwise industrial modern style room.

The DwellStudio Myles glider was a steal at $350 on Craigslist including the ottoman. I found it new from a local boutique children’s shop called Creative Kid Stuff. I made this room a budget friendly room by repurposing our crib with a fresh coat of paint on the bottom, using a lot of standout IKEA pieces and finding fun inexpensive wall art.

My Modern Nursery #81: Kenzie Sponsored by Modified Tot

When designing your nursery, you’ve got to pick a piece or two to serve as inspiration and the spring board from which to start making choices.  I usually like to use the most colorful pieces as my spring board.  This is often art, a rug, or as in the case of my own child’s nursery, the bedding.

If you’re looking for colorful combinations of modern patterns for your nursery bedding, I recommend browsing the set offered by our sponsor, Modified Tot.  One of my favorite Mod Tot Exclusive designs is the Kenzie collection.  I love the coral, aqua and pink combination and I particularly like the Triangles fabric pattern.  I think Kenzie was a great inspiration for this modern feminine nursery board.

Soneca Pendant Lamp from CB2- $150
2- Abstract Muted 3 Gold Multicolor by Kelly Nasuta- $ based on size and framing

My Modern Nursery #76: Shared Times Three Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I designed this space for grandma’s house.  She requested taupe, silver and aqua and so that’s where I started.  With five grandchildren in three different families (and I’m sure more eventually), this design maximizes the sleeping combinations for boys and girls of different age ranges in each family and includes a comfy spot for Grandma’s favorite activity– reading bedtime stories.  While that was my aim, this also makes a perfect shared room for three kids.

Oeuf’s Perch Bunk Bed is the most beautiful bunk bed ever, and we already have a Classic Oeuf Crib that they can use.  The paint color is Sheep’s Wool from our sponsor Lullaby Paints.   It’s a warm and cozy neutral that is comfortable for adult guests as well.  The house is in Florida so it needs a ceiling fan, and I added a little sense of place with the Florida map.

1- Sheep’s Wool Wall Paint from Lullaby Paints- $59 a gallon
2- Mali Bedding from John Robshaw
Seaglass Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw- $250
Hammock Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw- $140
Oeuf Perch Bunk Bed in Birch- $1540
Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus – Plush Stuffed Animals (with Voice)- $28
3- Minka Aire F517-WH Concept I 52 in. Indoor Ceiling Fan – White- $275
4- Florida Custom State Map Art Print from TR Prints- $18
Block Printed Art Prints by Katharine Watson- price depends on size
Blue Moon Over Mountains- $109
The Dorm from Ferm Living- $140
5- Oeuf Crib Classic Birch- $940
6- Dream Girl Sheet Set (Aqua)- $59
7- Shala Rug in Marine from Restoration Hardware 8′x10′- $3435
Custom Name Pillow from Feather Hen- $22
Personalized Name Pillow from Feather Hen- $28
8- Rope Hamper from Serena & Lily- $98
Thompson Glider from DwellStudio in Linen Ice Blue- $1165
9- Night Owl Porcelain Lamp from RH baby & child- $60
10- Oeuf Mini Library in Birch- $680
Elephant 7″ & Piggie 5″ Soft Toys- $29

In my Pinterest Board for this space, I included several furniture and art options that could be considered as alternatives.  For example, a twin sleeper chair could add one more bed to the room without taking up too much additional space when it’s not needed.

Thanks to Lullaby Paints for sponsoring this post.  I’m excited to be working with them on this series of nursery inspiration boards featuring their premium paints.  Lullaby Paints are are safe for both newborns and pregnant moms so they’re perfect for your eco-friendly modern nursery.
