2011 Totally Awesome Awards Finalist “Most Awesome Nursery and Décor Site”



In January 2010, after maintaining buymodernbaby.com for 4 years, I finally felt the need to add a companion blog to the site. I believe the product guide is a wonderful resource on its own, but there are so many items and ideas that just don’t fit into the neat categories.

buymodernbaby.com started, like so many other parent websites and blogs do, when I was expecting my first child. I had an idea about what I DIDN’T want to buy for my nursery and the type of thing I thought I was looking for. I DIDN’T want ruffles, or bears or trucks or duckies. I didn’t want licensed characters or shabby chic. I wanted simple, sophisticated and modern, but this was back in 2005 and finding what I wanted was extremely difficult– particularly since I don’t live in New York or California. After months of searching the web, I had found a few online retailers that each had a small selection of modern nursery furnishings and accessories.  From these, I was able to piece together a nursery I loved.

By the time I had picked everything out I knew just about every company, product and store that fit my taste. With this information, I created a guide where someone like me could find all the choices that were out there without having to do all the research. Over the years I have kept up with the explosion of new companies, lines and products and have continued to update the guide so it remains a comprehensive source for finding the hottest and coolest baby products, gear and furnishings.

I am a little envious of newly expecting parents.  There are SOOO many great new choices each and every year.  I know if I were shopping today I would have picked out many different things– though I don’t regret any of my choices!

I hope that my readers and followers find buymodernbaby useful in some way and I’d love to know that someone found just the right crib or bedding or shower gift because of something they discovered here and our nursery ideas.  So with that in mind, and a passion for ridding the world of nurseries with ruffles, cutesy bears, trucks themes and duckies, I will continue to discover the most modern and stylish furnishings, gear and accessories available to you in North America.


I keep the same policy for both my blog and on www.buymodernbaby.com

My goal is to share every item that might be of interest and give my readers access to buy the products when possible.  I have made affiliate connections and select relevant advertisers for my pages from a collection of trusted retailers.  If I create a link to a product or service in a review, sometimes I may get paid a commission if you purchase the product or service.  Any other compensation that might influence the content of blog posts is disclosed in the individual post.

I’m not selling anything but I do hope you find exactly the items you were hoping to buy.
