My Modern Nursery #101: Sunshine Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We haven’t done a yellow nursery for a while, so it was about time that we revisit this popular gender-neutral option. I chose a creamy Sunshine Yellow from Lullaby Paints for Project Nursery and knew I wanted to use Babyletto’s new Bingo 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with that great Cool Mint accent color. I think the board turned out great but if you need more inspiration and ideas for this color scheme, we’ve got you covered with a lot more options on our Sunshine Yellow Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board.

Real Room Tour: Henry’s Home with a Hint of Nautical

I’m so pleased to have discovered this fresh nursery on the lovely blog You’re So Martha.  Justine, who is expecting Henry’s arrival any time now, has a spectacular space to welcome him home to.  Using just a hint of a nautical “overtone,” this room comes together perfectly.

I love the soothing gray with navy aqua and orange as color accents.  Even the small name canvas on the wall make such a great impact.  It’s so simple and so perfect.

In this wide-angle view of the room, you can see the layout of the entire nursery.

I like seeing a glider near the crib.  It makes it so much easier to rock a baby to sleep and then transfer them to the crib if you don’t have to cross the entire room.  It’s also a good place to sit when trying to comfort a baby back to sleep when you don’t want to grab them out of the crib.

The reading bench summarizes the scheme of the room perfectly.  It’s a great spot where all the colors in the room come together and it’s a great way to add storage to an awkward spot under the window.

Real Room Tour: Perfectly Not Pink Girl’s Nursery

I’ve got to admit, I’m a little jealous of those of you who get to get to decorate for a little girl.  I always imagined having a little tomboy with denim overalls. pigtails and a red hooded sweatshirt.  While I don’t hold it against anyone who goes with a pink nursery, this room is a little more like the look I’d be going for.

Kerry, of the blog First Time Fancy, put this peaceful space together for a little girl who is expected any day now!  Formerly an uninspiring master bedroom, it is now exactly the opposite.

The fabric in the curtains inspired the entire nursery design.  I’m enjoying the aqua and mustard yellow color combination.  It’s got a sort of peaceful, old fashioned, homey feeling.  Adding to that feeling is the white wicker chair that was in Kerry’s own nursery when she was a baby.  You can’t argue with that kind of history.

The dresser was given a new life with a coat of paint and is a bright accent in the room as well as great storage.

The gallery wall is just waiting to be filled with the new baby’s initial.

The perfectly coordinated mobile was a great DIY project.  Kerry posted a wonderful tutorial if you want to give it a shot.

I love a nursery full of books.  Whenever I feel like something is missing in a child’s room, inevitably there are no books around.  There’s no such problem here thanks to Kerry’s handy father.  So sweet.

Finally, how precious is the little shoe display?!  Yet another reason to be jealous of those of you with little baby girls!

You can get more information and additional photos in Kerry’s Nursery Reveal post on First Time Fancy.  She’s also got lots of posts that chronicle the progress of the entire space.  It’s worth a look as it’s fun to see all the love and thought that went into creating the perfect place to welcome the newest addition to their family.

Thanks so much Kerry for sharing the wonderful pictures of your nursery with us!  It’s absolutely precious.

My Modern Nursery #43: The American Southwest

As you may have noticed, I was gone last week.  We headed to Arizona for a family vacation and an extreme change of scenery.  This area around Sedona, know as “Red Rock Country” is one of my favorite destinations in the world for the climate and the sights.

Here’s just a little sampling of the flavor of the area…

As we drove around admiring the homes and thinking about the magnificent views they must have, I dreamt of staying in Sedona permanently.  Of course, I imagined the type of modern nursery that would suit the local architecture.  This is what I came up with.

1- Heather Levine Lamps

2- Sand Painted Disc and Turquoise Floating Disc from Red Dove Art- $185 each

3- Stuffed Obax Roadrunner 12″– $18
Spot on Square Roh Dresser – Walnut / White
– $1290

4- P’Kolino Clothes Tree, White– $90

5- White Monte Joya Rocker with Walnut Base and Paul Smith Brown Lumbar Pillow- $1030

6- Heather Levine Wall Hanging

7- Roh Crib – 1 Side Clear – Walnut / White– $1590

8- Tribal Rugs 35 Navy

9- Svan Bouncer – Chocolate / Orange– $120

10- Natural Tree-Stump Side Table from West Elm- $200

No, it’s not cheap, but neither is Sedona real estate.

Real Room Tour: Bright and Beautiful in the Heartland

Angela, from the beautiful blog, Handmade in the Heartland, put together this bright and cheerful nursery for her new baby, Max (who is due any day now!).

The yellow and aqua color scheme looks so fresh and crisp here.  That beautiful shade of aqua is Benjamin Moore’s Robins Nest, and the fabric for the curtains was from Ikea.  The simple, modern crib is the ever-popular ParkLane crib from Baby Mod.  The robot prints are from MODERNPOP and they look like they were just meant to be in this space.

The ubiquitous Expedit from Ikea provides ample display and storage space for Max’s goodies and the library he will accumulate as he grows.  Angela created some of the little art pieces on display and has generously provided the documents for you to print and use yourself!  They are simply charming.

Some of the other lovely details in the room include the Good Night Sleep Tight print from Roll & Tumble Press, the Rattan Elephant Hamper, a Flensted Penguin Mobile and an Offi My Pet Lamp Dachshund.

In addition to the fresh colors and bright feel of this room, I love the way it is ready to be filled with all the little things that come with kids.  The shelves have plenty of empty space so the room can stay clean and uncluttered even as Max gets new toys, books and games.

To read more about the nursery, visit Angela’s nursery reveal on her blog.  Angela is a fashion designer who does custom bridal gowns.  You can see her work at Angela Muir Custom Bridal.

Angela, thanks so much for sharing your space.  You did an amazing job and I know you and Max will enjoy the time you spend in this lovely room.
