As a second-time mom expecting baby boy number two in early June, I knew that I wanted to come up with a beautiful nursery design again. But this time, the focus was on simple, modern design with strong organization and a very comfortable chair.
I now know how quickly children grow and realize that I’ll be transitioning baby into a big boy bed sooner than I can imagine. I chose a color palette of a soft teal/aqua paired with all sorts of neutrals. Black, white and grey make up most of our accent colors, but I’m adding a bit of yellow as well. I think I’ll be able to easily create a big-boy room in a year or two with this base. After changing the room design multiple times, I went back to my roots. I love clean modern design with just a touch of whimsy. Fun throw pillows and a great mobile add just the right amount of sweetness to an otherwise industrial modern style room.
The DwellStudio Myles glider was a steal at $350 on Craigslist including the ottoman. I found it new from a local boutique children’s shop called Creative Kid Stuff. I made this room a budget friendly room by repurposing our crib with a fresh coat of paint on the bottom, using a lot of standout IKEA pieces and finding fun inexpensive wall art.
