My Modern Nursery #17: Goodnight Moon

What is more classic and familiar than the book “Goodnight Moon”?

Raise your hand if you love this book

It was my inspiration for this super colorful modern nursery.  First I searched to find if there was anything out there similar to what I was setting out to do. I didn’t find any “real” rooms based on this theme. but apparently there is a children’s museum (in California?) that has a version of the room to play in.  It looks like soo much fun…

For my modern nursery version of the room, paint the walls green (or not), get some green and yellow striped curtains and if you’re really brave, paint the trim red.  I was excited to find that using this rainbow color palette actually resulted in a fresh looking room.

My Modern Nursery #16: Rich or Reasonable

A while ago I featured Rikshaw Design‘s gorgeous crib bedding sets.  My favorite is the Udaipur set so I’ve used that as the inspiration for this nursery.  I’ve created two versions of this room and I really couldn’t tell you which one I like better.  The first version on the top retails for about $6000, but the one below is less than half the price at $2600.  Either way, the nursery is a warm, bright and gender-neutral space with a hint of exotic flavor.  (I know, I’ve got to move on from the green and orange.  I’ll try.)
