New Colors from Spot on Square

I liked the original patterned panels on the Alto Crib from Spot on Square, but these colorful translucent panels really get my brain buzzing. So pretty. This is a great way to add a modern pop of color to your nursery!

In addition, you can now get the Eicho Collection in gray in addition to white.

Now don’t mind me, I’ll just be putting an Eicho Twin Bed on my new home wish list. I have an almost 10 year old who could use an upgrade!

My Modern Nursery #103: Frosted Veil, Black and Gold Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

I’ve been playing around with ideas for decorating the house we’re moving into next month. We’re starting off with light warm gray walls throughout, so I loved working with this shade. Frosted Veil from Lullaby Paints is really close to the color in our new home and it’s a perfect neutral that’s really easy to use. In this glamorous modern nursery, the paint color is a background for black and gold.

We assembled an exciting combination of fun accessories for this space, but there are SO MANY MORE items on the Frosted Veil Nursery Inspiration Pinterest Board including additional rug options, different lighting ideas and more art pieces to make this black and gold scheme work for you.

Roh Crib Now in White and Alto Collection

Spot on Square‘s popular Roh crib is now available in white with acrylic.  Previously it was a two tone piece with walnut and acrylic on the front, walnut or walnut and acrylic on the back and white on the sides.  Now you can choose a simpler, cleaner look with just white and acrylic.  Shall we call it the fish tank of cribs?  Seriously, it’s gorgeous though. ($1700-$2100 and expected to ship October 2014)

I MAY be using this crib in our next nursery board.  Follow along on Pinterest as that inspiration develops.

Then, we’ve been waiting for the Alto Collection since ABC Kids Expo 2013.  The Alto Crib ($1790) is a beautiful, modern white crib with chrome legs and your choice of translucent end panels.

The matching bookshelf is a work of art as well.  Keep it up, Spot on Square!

Bloom Retro Nursery Collection

They call it retro, but it’s really a unique new modern crib with a fresh style for 2014.  These are the kind of curves I like on a crib.  No sleighs, no arches, just a slightly rounded shape that softens the modern style just a smidgen.

From Bloom, the Retro Crib is a solid wood crib “inspired by mid-century design.”  It is available in Coconut White as well as Oak.

The matching Retro Dresser comes with a white frame and your choice of Coconut White, Frost Grey or Oak drawer fronts.  The crib can be converted to a toddler bed with the Retro Bed Rail.

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

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.

BM Plural & Singular

Usually the ultra modern European kid spaces aren’t anything more than eye candy, but sometimes you can find a retailer out there ready to bring these to those of you who must have something really different.

BM Plural and Singular is a Spanish company that designs and creates practical space-saving collections with that distinctly European modern style.  These collections are all about customizing your color combinations and being really bold with your child’s space.  The collections aren’t for everyone, but I could see these for parents who live in Miami high rises for example.

Composition Baby 01 includes the convertible crib / platform bed, handrail, crib mattress, changer, 2 drawer facebox, toy box, armoire and knobs for $4450.  The main colors you can choose from are artic, coral, aqua and sun and then there are 16 accent color options.  The stool and giraffe decal are available as optional accessories.

Real Room Tour: Elliot’s Eclectic Attic

I’m so excited to share this gorgeous boy’s nursery with you.  It has such a unique eclectic feel where there’s history and personality, yet it’s completely clean and modern at the same time.

Starting with Oeuf’s Sparrow crib in Espresso finish, you can see a modern heirloom in the making.  The rag style rug is country and casual, but in this space it adds warmth and texture.  The felted wool mobile from Sqrl & Bee Studio on etsy is adorable with the little hedgehogs!

I’m loving using antique or traditional storage furniture painted in bright, unexpected colors, and this dresser is topped perfectly with the polka dotted changing cover.  The artwork in the room, the Notre Dame Football posters, and the Chicago poster obviously have a personal connection.

The caned bentwood rocker is a stunning focal point in the room.  It is made totally modern with the red side table and Tord Boontje Garland Pendant (which looks ultra-expensive, but isn’t!).

Thank you Kari for allowing me to share your photos of this space.  You did an absolutely incredible job with the nursery and it’s a room I’m sure that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.

(If you would like me to feature your nursery here as well, please drop a line to

Real Room Tour: Pink and Gray is New Again

When I was in the fourth grade, I got a new 10 speed bicycle for my birthday.  It was pink and gray and it was the coolest bike I had ever seen.  After a couple of years I decided I didn’t like pink and the bike was passed on, but I might be coming full circle.  Pink and gray is new again in this beautiful nursery!

I usually shy away from pink, even in my girls’ nursery designs, but I may be coming around.  The gray makes a clean backdrop and the modern shades of pink in this nursery are used as an accent color without being overused.  Designed by baboo Design, the room features the Classic Oeuf Crib, custom painted walls and a gorgeous flower rug from Zara Home.

The dresser is a Malm from Ikea, the crib bedding is from Jacadi and the lamp was made by the designer’s sister.

The Rocking Elephant and mobile are from Pottery Barn Kids but are no longer available (unfortunately, since they are nicer than anything PBK has right now).

Thanks to baboo Design for sharing these gorgeous photos.  To see more of their work, visit their website.
