There’s one thing that my clients sometimes say to me that I just love. “I want my nursery to be modern but also kind of traditional—somewhere in between.” I love that this opens me up to all kinds of options; it really gets my creative juices flowing. I had a nursery e-design client who told me exactly that. Her home had a lot of mid-century modern decor and she shopped mainly at stores like West Elm, but she wanted her girl’s nursery to be softer and sweeter.

When I start a new e-design, I always begin with the floor plan. This gives me an idea of what will fit and how the room will flow. After we got the floor plan nailed down, I started choosing her furniture. She wanted something modern and fun that wouldn’t break the bank. I chose this great two-tone crib and dresser for her—both pieces are modern, but the unfinished wood adds just a touch of contrast and added interest.
She knew she wanted blush pink but didn’t want it to overwhelm the space. So instead, I suggested that we choose a different accent color (indigo blue) and then drop in just a touch of the blush pink. There are a few different neutrals going on in the space, so I pulled in a great patterned neutral rug to tie it all together.
Storage was another issue in this space, and she wanted open shelving. (She and her husband are both book lovers). I recommended a white tower bookcase and some additional wall book cubes to use both for storage and display. She didn’t want a themed nursery, but she wanted something in the space that reflected her love of music. I chose a fun metallic gold wall decal with little music notes to go above the crib. Cute and safe—a win win!
