My Modern Nursery #113: Golden Glow Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

After more than thirty nursery boards where I’ve used Lullaby Paints colors as the backdrop, I was starting to worry that I had chosen all my favorite shades of wall paint. Of course there were a few more colors that would be perfect for use on accent furniture pieces, but I wasn’t sure how many more colors were left to use for nursery inspiration. Of course you can always color match from other brands to create your favorite zero VOC paint, but you can imagine my delight then when Lullaby Paints updated their site, adding hundreds of new shades to their shop!

It was time to do another yellow nursery and instead of a handful of options, I found…

Lullaby Paints yellow choices

I was looking for a medium (not too light nor too dark), rich (but slightly muted) yellow that would create a cozy, modern atmosphere. I think Golden Glow is a perfect shade for anyone brave enough to go beyond the pale, so to speak, when it comes to yellow.

My Modern Nursery #108: Azure Sea Nursery Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

As tempting as it was to use the paint color name as my inspiration–Azure Sea— I resisted the obvious. Once I found the Treescape Dorrance Chair at Anthropologie, I just couldn’t help myself from including it and so I had my direction. This space is all about the beautiful feminine colors and luxurious textures. We have a lot more options for you to use in your space on our Pinterest Board, but I think we’ve struck just the right balance here, no? So, who’s having a girl?

My Modern Nursery 108 : Azure Sea

1- Azure Sea Wall Paint from Lullaby Paints- $59 a gallon
2- Chaos No. 3 Wall Art by Brenna Giessen
Up And Away by Laura Hankins (melon)- $45-$613 with metal frame
3- Tribal Antler and Floral Nursery Decor from Paige and Poppy
4- Eduard Plug-In Sconce– $234
Matte Velvet Curtain– $248- $328 each depending on length
5- Willow Metallic Velvet Pillow from Kevin O’Brien- $354
Small Moroccan Metallic Velvet Pillow from Kevin O’Brien- $289

9- Color Refor Spectrum Overdyed Rug– 8′ x 9’11”- $4900
10- Curious Squirrel Pillow– $45

I know I used some really luxe items on this board but other than the crib, the most expensive items aren’t specifically for babies or kids so they can last forever in other parts of the home. If you love really love something and want to splurge on it in the nursery, think about where else you can use it or keep it as part of the child’s space as they grow. If you love the look of the board but need more affordable options for some pieces, check out the Azure Sea Nursery Inspiration Pin Board for more ideas or send me a message and I’m sure we can find beautiful alternatives for you!

The items on the Snowy Fleece Nursery Inspiration Pinterest board are just as great as what we’ve included here, so if you enjoy this scheme, please visit the board for more items to consider. We have furniture alternatives as well as other accessories to round out the rest of the room. We really just can’t include everything in one image!

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.

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.

Little Crown Interiors modern green girl's nursery

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!

My Modern Nursery #72: Wired for Girls Sponsored by NUMI NUMI Design

I know that NUMI NUMI‘s new Wired collection is inspired by modern technology and a busy urban skyline, but what was really speaking to me this week was the beautiful natural bamboo materials and the Amber finish of the Wired Crib and Wired Changing Table.  I really did start with a more urban inspiration but scrapped it all in an effort to not distract from the design of the crib.  Instead, the coral and blue color scheme worked with the Amber color and became this fun, warm and feminine design board.

2- Astron Mid-Century Modern Pendant– $155

My Modern Guest from A Lovely Lark

Lauren, from the truly lovely blog A Lovely Lark, has a delicious summery nursery design for you this July 4th.  I hope your holiday is half as sweet as this gorgeous space.  Thanks Lauren!  And Happy 4th of July!

Yummy Summer Nursery

Hi, Lauren from A Lovely Lark here, pinch hitting for Esther while she and her family are on their summer vacation! Other than, of course, the obvious fireworks and red/white/blue, July makes me think of hot, glorious summer days filled with pools, lemonade, and popsicles. So when I came across this popsicle print on Etsy, I knew it would be the perfect jumping-off point for a summer nursery:

Clockwise from top right: popsicle print, tassel garland, gold heart print, ombre pillow, gold lamp, rug, love love print, gold pouf, crib bedding, rocker, zinc letter, narwal/whale, dresser

I also created a little boy version over on my blog – stop over and take a peek. Thanks for having me Esther! xo, Lauren
