A Colorful Modern Nursery

Recently, Kate wrote to me about her nursery:

Hi Lauren!

I have loved your style ever since I found your blog via Making It Lovely! I am currently 5 months pregnant and am stumped on my nursery design. So far we have the crib (Classic from Oeuf) and that's it. I know that I want neutral walls, lots of color in the furniture and decor, and girly but modern. No frills - just pretty colors. I also love elephants but I don't want it to look too theme-y. Can't wait to see what you come up with!


Modern, pretty pops of color, and no frills? Sounds delectable! Here's what I came up with:

Paint - Behr Magnolia Blossom
Print - The Pajama Squid
Crib - OeufNYC
Elephant - etsy seller rabbitsmoon
Curtains - Urban Outfitters
Lamp - Crate & Barrel
Rocker - Urban Outfitters
Rug - Urban Outfitters
Dresser - Land of Nod 
Mobile - Clever Tomato 
Fabric Penant - Clever Tomato 
Crib Fabric - etsy seller RockyTopDesign


  1. hey there -- I love the rocker and am considering it for my nursery but do you think it would be comfy for nursing? I'm trying to do more research on it before I take the plunge :)

  2. I'm sure everyone is different, but for me I basically need a chair to be wide enough for my Boppy and not to deep. This chair looks like it would fit the bill, but I'd have to try it out or at least check out the measurements to be sure. If you're worried about the wooden arms, putting a pillow under your arm would easily solve that issue, as it has for me many times. It is gorgeous though, isn't it?!

  3. Yes I really like it and the price is right!

  4. Hey, I just wanted to chime in for a second. I've been seeing the rocker everywhere (well, ok, here and Making It Lovely) and I just want to say DONT DO IT! I bought it on looks alone (though slightly annoyed that it has such great colors now) and while it is comfortable enough for just sitting, it BARELY rocks. You could probably get better rocking action with a dining chair. It feels like you are rocking on several electrical cords. its a huge bummer, as its super cute. I'm lucky that my baby doesn't require much rocking...yet. Wish me luck.

  5. Yes I really like it and the price is right!
