Who doesn’t love a fun nursery!? Black and white is SO in right now, and I jumped at the chance to design this modern nursery for a friend of mine!
The first thing we did was find crib bedding we liked. We found the bedding at target! There were several items that matched this bedding set. Some examples are these blankets and this rug. Amazon also has these crib sheets would work perfectly as well!
We wanted something cute, but functional to be able to hold toys. On these ikea shelves we added a mix of decorative stuff, and baskets for toys, pacifiers, blankets, etc… We found these adorable book ends on amazon! We topped the shelves with an entrusted design sign! This is our 30″ circle sign to help you with size perspective.
When choosing a rug for a room, it’s a balance between choosing a rug that is big enough to be substantial but not so large that it overwhelms the room. We went with this crib and just didn’t use the wheels. Another crib option is iron. While it is more expensive, it’s beautiful! Especially for a little girl! (Not that I would know what designing a little girl’s room is like 😉 )
We actually got this ikea rocking chair however, I also found this rocking chair at target for another option. This pillow was too cute to pass up! You can put it in the crib when the baby is not in it or place it as an accent pillow in the rocker. When you want to prop your feet up a pouf ottoman is great accessory! There are several options for these! Target, Wayfair, and Ashley Furniture are good places to find these.
For the drapes we took a fun girls trip to IKEA! We love a reason for a girls trip and IKEA has very affordable but nice looking pre-made drapes! I would suggest getting as long of drapes as your room allows. The higher you can hang the rod, the taller it makes the room appear. For my own personal style I like for the drapes to “pool” at the bottom just a little bit. However, some prefer that the drapes simply “kiss” the floor.
When picking a dresser, we wanted sleek and modern. We chose black so that it would compliment the crib and stand out on the gray wall a bit more. A must have in my opinion is something personalized in a nursery! This changing pad cover from carousel designs is the perfect touch! The picture and basket about the dresser were both from Hobby Lobby, and the chandelier is from Ashley Furniture!
Lastly, with permission, I wanted to share a few pictures of the family and baby who occupy this sweet nursery! I hope you’ve enjoyed this design blog, and feel inspired to get out and design something 🙂
