Real Room Tour: Modern Lime Green from Little Crown Interiors

From the design duo at Little Crown Interiors, this modern lime green nursery is simple, but super stylish.  Bright pops of lime green, a patterned rug and fun wallpaper are the perfect accessories for the sculptural furniture pieces that include the Maclaren (Netto Collection) Louis Crib and Dresser (now discontinued), a mid-century side table and a beautiful Eames Lounge with Ottoman.

With a patterned wallpaper, Little Crown Interiors’ Wood Wall Heart is a simple graphic art piece on the statement wall.

I love how the room has neutral, natural feel with a distinctly feminine flair.

The room is equally comfortable for both mom and dad… and apparently the dog as well!

Real Room Tour: Sebastian’s Special Space

I’m so happy that Laura chose to share the photos of her baby Sebastian’s nursery with me!  Just scroll through these photos are you’ll see why I’m so excited.

Inspired by Animals wallpaper from Minkani Lab, this bright, creative room was a labor of love.  Unfortunately, Minikani wallpaper is all but impossible to acquire in the US, so this resourceful mama scaled the design in Photoshop and painted it as a mural on the wall.  While the project took 40 hours (!), I think you’ll agree that it was worth her efforts.

The furniture in the room is the Baby Mod Olivia collection and storage is thanks to Ikea’s Expedit, which is customized with legs to match the crib and dresser.  I also love seeing the Modern Geometric Crib Quilt from Barbara Perrino in this space.


The window treatments feature Holli Zollinger’s Arrows fabric, which matches the Charcoal Arrow Changing Pad cover from Iviebaby.


The cozy reading area includes a Serenity Star from Aden and Anais and a beautiful Kartell Componibili side table.

Reading Corner

Opposite the mural, this wall with the colorful bunting and library is almost as fun.


Sebastian is a lucky little boy with all the fun toys and accessories his mom has collected for him.



He’ll also really enjoy selecting books on his front facing wall bookshelf.

This room would simply not be the same without the colorful display of books.

Thank you Laura for sending these amazing photos.  This is a room filled with love and awaiting all the adventures that come with a new baby boy!

Real Room Tour: Daniel’s Room by SISSY + MARLEY

SISSY + MARLEY‘s nursery designs are usually aspirational, but with a view like that, this one it truly at the top… literally!

While the design of this elegant modern nursery is subtle and sophisticated, the room is actually overrun with a menagerie.  It’s hard to count up just how many animals decorate the space, especially if you include the elephants in the Baby Elephant Walk wallpaper.

Another reason I find this nursery exciting is it’s use of ducduc furnishings.  It’s hard to find photos of these pieces used very often, but this nursery features an Austin Bookshelf

a Campaign Crib

and a Morgan 4 Drawer Dresser.

Of course, no top-of-the-line modern nursery would be complete without seating from Monte Design and they’ve selected a Joya Rocker in white for Daniel.

SISSY + MARLEY really know how to find all the most beautiful and luxurious pieces and bring them all together.  Congratulations on another phenomenal job.  Daniel is a lucky little man who seems to be starting life with the best of everything.

Real Room Tour: Dylan’s Room by SISSY + MARLEY

Dylan’s nursery is another spectacular space designed by SISSY + MARLEY in their signature modern style.

This room features a subtle safari theme highlighting the Giraffe Wallpaper from SISSY + MARLEY for Jill Malek.


With wild animal accents, a Monte glider and Oeuf furniture in Walnut, this modern nursery is clean and bright but still has a warm and cozy feel.


No place is cozier than this sunny window seat.


The room is personalized and accessorized to perfection.


A Binth Alphabet Poster hangs above the changing area with an Oilo cover.


And what safari nursery would be complete without a faux taxidermy head?  This one is a sweet gazelle by Tamar Mogendorff.


Dylan is really starting off in style!  Thanks to SISSY + MARLEY for sharing the photos of this special space.  You have extraordinary taste and I’m blown away by all the special details.

Real Room Tour: West Hollywood Nursery from Amy Sklar Design

I really should take more time to browse interior design portfolios, but thankfully I was able to discover this unique gem of a nursery via a pin from Monte Design.


With darker tones and a masculine flavor, I wasn’t surprised that this baby boy’s nursery was created for a first time, single dad.  With dark wood floors and trim throughout the house, Amy Sklar had her work cut out for her when looking for a way to add some fun and light to the space.

Amy explains, “If we had started painting out the trim to make it lighter to work with the majority of the nursery bedding on the market, it would have really impacted the continuity with the trim and floors in the rest of the house, so we set out to find a bedding that would have the sweetness that the client wanted, but also work with the fixed dark elements of the house.”

The bedding she found, Ferm Living’s Mountain Friends, achieved the perfect tone and tied black and brown in with light blue.  Amy used Farrow & Ball’s “Parma Gray” on the walls and the amazing wispy clouds were done by decorative painter Olivia Raeburn.

With some beautiful classic modern nursery pieces like Monte’s Luca Glider and the Moda Crib and Dresser from Room & Board, this space is modern nursery perfection.


Add a little Jonathan Adler, photos from The Animal Print Shop, and giant blabla dolls, and we’ve got a master class in modern nursery design.



Apparently Amy reads BuyModernBaby too, so it’s no wonder ;)

In addition to his nursery, this lucky little boy enjoys playroom perfection as well.  With an Expedit full of Ugly Dolls, the play table that’s on my personal wish list, and some colorful art and accessories, this room will be fun and functional for years to come.




Thanks for sharing the photos of this incredibly dramatic yet super sweet nursery and the sophisticated but fun playroom, Amy!  You do amazing work.

Real Room Tour: Avery + Sebastian’s Room by SISSY + MARLEY

We talked about SISSY + MARLEY’s new wallpaper launch yesterday, and today we’ve got brand new images of a room that uses my favorite design from the collection.

This shared room for Avery and her baby brother Sebastian is a sophisticated and chic yet fun kid’s space.  The room, featuring Lucky Star wallpaper, is curated to perfection by the multi-talented ladies from SISSY + MARLEY.

The wall is adorned with some of their signature favorites, a print by Sharon Montrose and a pair of Jonathan Adler sconces.


For good measure, a few extra stars by Colette Bream adorn the Oeuf toddler bed.


The reading area is anchored by a Monte Joya rocker and the books on the wall function as art.


Sebastian’s crib is too sweet with some Lucky Boy Sunday and blabla kids pillows.

Real Room Tour: Featuring Baby Elephant from The Animal Print Shop

Dash’s Los Angeles nursery is clean, simple and beautiful– everything the perfect modern nursery should be.  Dash’s parents Max and Margaux Wanger turned creative control of their little one’s room over to their friends at The Animal Print Shop, and with results like this, I wouldn’t hesitate hesitate to turn my entire home over to them!

The room features a limited edition print of The Animal Print Shop’s latest baby, “Baby Elephant” as a striking (and adorable) focal point.

The crib is a Robin from Oeuf and the white Eames Elephant adds some sculptural fun on this side of the room.

We’re going to have to talk more about that amazing “Roxy” chair from OneFortyThree another day…

…and just stop drooling over the “fauxdenza” storage unit / changing table because if you want one you’re going to have to make it yourself!

I think this nursery illustrates that you can really create an incredible high end look in a small space by investing in just a few statement pieces.  In this case the artwork, rocker, lamp and Eames accessories prove that less is more.

Thanks to Sharon Montrose from The Animal Print shop for letting us share these amazing photos (by Joe Schmelzer) with you.  Check out their nursery post for more information about the room.

Real Room Tour: Reed’s Nursery from Honey & Fitz

Dina, from the incredible blog Honey & Fitz, has been teasing Reed’s nursery ever since she announced her pregnancy.  At least that’s how it seems to me because that’s how long I’ve been anticipating something incredible from this stylish and talented designer.  With a new baby and a new home in a new city, I just knew she was going to go all out.  Today she finally posted photos of the completed nursery and you’re going to have to take a look!

The jumping off point was the starry sky ceiling and the restful celestial theme grew from there.

You can’t go wrong with beautiful furniture pieces like Babyletto’s Hudson crib and a Nurseryworks Empire Rocker, but Dina brings it all together with her creativity and eye for detail.

The fabrics, color and textures are all layered perfectly.  I’d love to just sit in this room!

Even if I didn’t know the next photo was of Reed’s nursery, I’d recognize that dresser immediately.  This piece was repurposed from their last house and is even better here than it was in their master bedroom!

For many more photos and product and project details, go see the original post for Reed’s Nursery, and follow Honey & Fitz for more inspirational ideas from Dina. Thanks for sharing Reed’s nursery Dina– and he is so cute!!

Real Room Tour: Nursery Nook

Amber, sent me these photos of the nursery she created and designed for her little boy, Lucas.  Her nesting instincts kicked in big time with a home renovation that resulted in this cozy, chic space full of texture and special details.

A vintage dresser is topped with a DIY changing tray and cute accessories. The art includes recycled calendar posters and enlarged book illustrations.

Amber used ebay to find lots of unique details including the lamp base.

The blocks were a DIY project with glue + blank blocks + some old prints.  (I may have to do this myself- totally inspired!)

Amber re-covered an old wing back chair with some fabric she discovered and fell in love with.  The space wouldn’t have the same impact without this bold and colorful choice.

I’m super impressed with the Handmade Chandelier which Amber created using an old lamp shade and some white felt.  The rest of the details here were also custom made or re-purposed.

As you can see, this space started as completely bare bones, and with a little creativity and vision, became exactly the nursery Amber had hoped for.

See Amber’s nursery post for more photos and information about where she purchased things or how she made them! Also, be sure to visit her etsy shop Obsessivision.  Her fine art macro photography has rich and textural quality, much like the one she created in Lucas’s nursery.  Thanks for sharing your nursery and your etsy shop with us, Amber!  I’m sure you’ll inspire a few moms-to-be with their own creative decorating projects!
