If you've got a new baby on the way, chances are you've given a lot of thought to nursery décor. Both you and your baby will be spending a lot of time there, so invest some time and money into making it the perfect sanctuary.
While cartoon-themed nurseries can be cute-it doesn't scream “modern design!" I'm not saying that your nursery has to be filled with modern design classics; I'm just saying that the nursery can be stylish and chic without being tacky. Here are a few ways to modernize your nursery!
- Modern Cribs: Stylish crib options abound from popular brands like Oeuf, Stokke and Argington. Clean lines, subtle patterns and bright colors come together to create the perfect modern crib. Coordinate with the rest of your modern nursery furniture, or choose a piece that stands out on its own. Round or rectangular, convertible or canopy-there are so many styles to choose from!
- Modern Crib Bedding: Go all matchy-matchy and select your modern crib bedding based on the color scheme of your nursery-or-do the reverse! Design your nursery's color scheme around a brightly colored crib bedding set from DwellStudio! Choose from brightly colored prints to neutral solids-all with coordinating accessories that are sure to make a style statement.
- Modern Changing Tables: Find a modern changing table that complements the rest of your modern nursery furniture! Choose a gorgeous changing table in solid oak from Bratt Decor or a brightly colored two-toned changing table from ducduc. Looking for extra storage space? Choose between shelves and drawers-whatever works best in your space!
- Modern Dressers: Fall in love with the fun and funky Tetra dresser from notNeutral and be the envy of every mother on your block! With so many styles to choose from, you'll have no trouble finding the perfect match. First, decide how much storage space you need then pick the style that would best work in your nursery. Keep in mind that some dressers can double as a changing table if they are low enough-just throw on a changing pad and you're all set! Maximize your space if you don't have much of it.
Now that we've covered the basics, it's time to fill in the blanks with accessory furniture. Choose from modern kids’ table and chair sets, rocking chairs, funky lamps, wall decorations or fun area rugs to add some color. When it comes to modern nursery furniture, your options are endless!
