7 Awesome Nursery Room Ideas to Get You Inspired – With all the options and nursery design trends available, a baby’s nursery no longer has to be a traditional, pastel-coloured affair. If you love modern design, we’ve compiled a collection of baby nursery ideas that are cool enough for baby to love and design-conscious adults to appreciate, too. Which one is your favourite?
When selecting a crib, there are many new and modern designs to choose from. Try something modern or different, like an oval crib. Consider using a crib that converts into baby’s first bed when a crib is outgrown. And because the crib is the most used item in a nursery, order it ahead of time. Delays happen, cribs get damaged during the delivery process and you want to allow yourself the time required for any unexpected delays.
If the sex of your baby is a surprise, go with timeless and modern grey as your nursery’s main colour. Grey works with any bold accent shade making it modern but classic. And for the most visual bang, try layering different grey shades and patterns.
Good news for modern design lovers, soft pastels are not the best nursery choice. And black and white are not the only colours that babies are attracted to. Any bold, contrasting colours in graphic patterns will work.
A good ceiling lamp can do wonders to the decor. Handmade in brass and steel by Portuguese artisans, Atomic ceiling light boasts an exquisite gold-plated finish on the body, while the shades are lacquered a glossy black on the outside and a gold powder paint on the inside. It can be used in a modern entryway, and it also works beautifully as a bedroom ceiling lamp, especially in kids’ bedrooms.
Select modular furniture that can be used beyond the first year. Many crib styles nowadays convert into children’s beds, while changing tables are often a regular dresser with a detachable dressing table top. And don’t forget to add fun elements to a nursery like a tent or animal rocking horse that baby can use as he/she grows into a toddler.
When deciding on your baby’s nursery theme, be bold and fully commit to your theme. Use elements of the theme on the walls, in the accessories and the rest of the decor. That’s what makes so many of the featured nursery ideas in the featured gallery so appealing
Adding the kid’s name to the decor may be a creative idea to give a personal touch to the decor. From customized duvets to pillowcases, or, like the example above, wall lamps, adding the child’s name to the nursery decor might be a very creative way to make it unique.
