I love the opportunity to create a one-stop-shopping experience. If you can place an order for your entire nursery from one shop in one online shopping cart, what could be easier or more convenient?!

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.

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.

I’m so excited about Kalon Studios‘ new Caravan Crib that I had to try out a nursery design using the crib with such beautiful, brightly colored rails. Ikea has some colorful new cribs this year as well, so I made two versions of this room. One retails for $4744 and the other is only $1557. Which do you like best?
2- DwellStudio Chevron Extra Fitted Crib Sheet- $36 (both)
4- Amenity Woodland Squirrel Blanket- $45 (both)
10- Amenity Woodland Squirrel Floor Pillow- $115 (both)

I think you’ll agree that one of the best things about the nursery Tracy H. put together for her son Noah, is the subtle way she incorporated a transportation theme. She explains, “we wanted a theme, but not a room that felt “theme-y”. As the mother of two boys who are fascinated by all things car, truck, plane, or train, I know that a transportation theme is actually something boys can love from a very early age. Tracy added transportation accents throughout the room, but in a subtle way that adds interest to a chic and sophisticated color palette. This room is also cleverly designed to grow with its resident and will easily transition from a nursery to child’s room to teen’s room through the years without much effort!
Tracy purchased the very popular Baby Mod ParkLane Crib from Walmart, which looks great in every nursery I’ve seen it used in. The rug is a focal point in the room and one of my favorite elements. Notice that the door has been painted with magnetic and chalkboard paint– how fun is that?! The black center just looks fabulous on that style door even without the added bonus of being able to write on it.
This Dorel rocker was another Walmart find, but Tracy and her mom customized it with a green cover. The corner is topped off with the fantastic Traffic Mobile from Djeco.

I’m super excited to share this beautiful nursery with you. Cate of the craft blog See Cate Create, designed this fabulous nursery for her newest arrival. Of course, this crafty mom made most of the decor items herself!
The inspiration for the entire nursery was the vinyl wall decal from designedDESIGNER’s etsy shop. Large scale decals like this can become simple, elegant, custom wall murals, yet they are very affordable. They can also be removed rather easily when you’re ready to redecorate.
Cate made the crib quilt using a bath towel, some polar fleece and scrap fabric. The design mimics the mural on the wall. She also block printed the bird pillow that sits in the crib.
One of the most fun details in the room is the pair of white mounted antlers, which tie in beautifully to the overall design scheme.
All these fun little details were also handmade by Cate and she has tutorials for some of them on her blog.
DIY leaf lamp- made out of polar fleece and an old lamp shade
Stuffed Owl- created out of a hand towel and scrap fabric and couldn’t be cuter!
Fabric Wall Art- follow the link for a tutorial on how to make this gorgeous custom artwork.
Alphabet Pillow- follow the link for step-by-step instructions to create your own!
See the inspiration for the room and the before of the room in Cate’s “Not So Baby-ish” Nursery Plans post and be sure to visit her blog for lots of amazing craft ideas with easy to follow instructions. Thanks so much Cate for sharing the photos and creative ideas in your beautiful nursery!

I’ve shopped at Babies R Us for utilitarian items from time to time, but one of my main reasons for creating buymodernbaby is to show people all the great products that are available in the marketplace so they don’t think that the offerings at big box stores are their only choices.
Over the years, I have noticed that Babies R Us started carrying some of the brands that I enjoy so I wondered if it was finally possible to create a Modern Nursery using just the items that you could add to your Babies R Us registry. I knew that this would be a challenge. Take a look at what I came up with. Take the challenge yourself and see if you can do better.

I got scooped on this room by ohdeedoh, but in case you didn’t see it or if you want to know more, I’ve got the photos and details right here.
The nursery Krissy Purcell designed for her daughter totally rocks! From the bold orange wall to the music posters, this is not your typical owl and woodland themed nursery.
The paint colors she used are Polar White and Kumquat from Behr. The crib is the ever popular Baby Mod Olivia model from Walmart and the bookcase is the universal Ikea Expedit (I have one in my son’s room too).
The green rug and the dresser are also from Ikea. I love the way the Fisher Price Soothe N Play Bouncer – Woodland Animals really works in this room. The colors look like they are custom for the space and I’m all about spending less than $30 on a bouncer since you only use it for a couple months.
The poster above the changing table is “The Get Up Kids” show poster purchased from http://www.mbradyclark.com/. The colors work perfectly.
The Expedit can be styled an infinite number of ways and this one looks fantastic. The
storage bins are from the Land of Nod and the custom ribbon decoration was added.
How adorable are these stuffed toys waiting for baby in the crib?! You can find the fox on etsy from SleepyKing and the owl is from Lambs & Ivy. The bedding is a discontinued J.J. Cole set called Green Vines.
The rest of the nursery is filled with beautiful little details like the growth chart decal from SingleStoneStudios. The owl storage bin from 3 sprouts is a great storage solution for a child’s room, and the print from Belle and Boo is one of my very favorite items in the room! It is so sweet, and the little stuffed carrot in front makes it all just too precious! Top that off with a few more music posters and you know Krissy’s little girl is going to rock the playground in her little vans!
Krissy, thanks so much for letting me share this tour of your awesome nursery! It’s filled with so much fun and personality. I’m sure people will be using it as inspiration for their own spaces.

It’s sometimes difficult to achieve a modern aesthetic on a modest budget, but April refused to sacrifice style in this retro nursery she designed for her third son. You can’t help but be inspired by her creative solutions!
This nursery also functions as a guest space thanks to the trundle daybed from Ikea. April saved money on a rug by using a soft and shaggy bath mat from Target. I love how the little Ikea wagon adds a pop of color and accents the blue in the bedding! The robot decals over the daybed were colorful stickers that April sprayed white and arranged for contrast on the gray wall. This project only cost $5!
The bedding is DwellStudio for Target’s Space Crib Set and April picked up the dresser, mirror and end table on craigslist for just $50. With a little paint, these pieces have a fresh clean look that will function for a long time. April also painted the little robot canvas on the right using extra paint from the mural wall. Too cute!
April created the mod mural herself and the design will transition really well as the baby grows up.
This art wall located over the changing table is an inexpensive arrangement of Ikea and Walmart frames. The UFO and the orange robot are works of art by the baby’s older brothers– so sweet and personal!
Instead of a mobile, April installed this IQ lamp over the crib. Being right by the rocking chair, the lamp will also be perfect as a bedtime reading lamp. I love when things do double duty. The pillow case on the rocker was made by April’s great-grandmother and she drew the robot outline on it with a white fabric pen. It looks teriffic!
I am also super impressed with this DIY lamp reno.
Without the expense of replacing the outdated fixture, April totally achieved a spacey, retro look!
The room was finished off with lots of fun and colorful accessories that enhance the look she was going for.
April made the little red robot doll herself and a friend knit the funky little “ugly doll” for the nursery.
April, you did a fabulous job putting this room together for your upcoming new arrival. I can tell he is awaited with great love and excitement. Thank you so much for sharing his room and all your fun and creative ideas with us.
