8 Modern Nurseries That Will Have You Paring Back Your Baby's Space
When designing a nursery for a baby on the way, you want to create a space that serves as a snug and safe home for your little one—filled with elements that will delight them—that's also cohesive with your own aesthetic. After all, you'll be spending just as much time in there. If your style leans minimalist, nursery design can be a tricky space to navigate. You want the nursery to be equipped with all the comforts that will keep your baby happy, and yet your propensity for clean design means there's little tolerance for clutter or lots of colour. To inspire a space for parent and baby alike that balances comfort, functionality, and beautiful design, we've rounded up eight modern nurseries that fit the bill.
Grown-up décor sensibilities aren't off-limits for children's spaces. Incorporate design elements you already love—like rattan, Persian rugs, and geometric prints.
A nursery doesn't need colours to be a cosy place for your little one. Whites, creams, and light earth tones make for a gorgeous palette—especially with warm textures like sheepskin, plush, or faux fur.
Working with natural wood, white, and greenery instantly brings together any room with a modern vibe that's also bohemian. Add more touches of colour with toys displayed on a shelf.
Or keep things light with different shades of cream, which can help smaller nurseries feel more open and airy.
The furniture you choose can be enough to instill a clean, modern look. An Eames rocker and an X-shaped book caddy are two statement elements that modernise the space.
