Inside editor’s adorable mid-century modern nursery home
Decorating your first nursery is no easy task. Are you constantly guessing what you actually need (glider? Recliner? Combo !?) When designing our baby Isla’s nursery, I wanted to create a bright, beachy space that was mostly neutral in terms of genre with mid-century modern and bohemian vibes mixed together. With the help of natural textures, ocean-inspired decor, and just the right amount of teal and gold accents, Isla’s bedroom quickly became my favorite in the house. Check out all the details and must-haves below!
My favorite piece of the room is definitely the glider from AllModern. Its mint hue matches the bright colors of the jute rug, and the retro-inspired lines pair perfectly with a Mid-Century dresser and modern cradle.
To bring some art and beach style into the nursery, we created a gallery wall above the mid century mod cradle. And believe it or not, most of the pieces were from Target’s sale section – hello, framed prints and $ 2 wall hangings! The wall really helps tie the room together and brings in the surfer vibes I was hoping for.
The changing table area has been made so much softer with this world market rattan mirror. To add a more playful and personal look to the area, I took a parrot sketch from a local artist Daniel Garzi and a tricolor teal surfboard crafted by a good friend of ours.
And since no nursery is complete without a load of books, I stored the IKEA KALLAX shelving unit with baby readings, soft toys, woven baskets for storage and plenty of plants to brighten it up.
It’s safe to say that our little addition is quite comfortable (and cute!) In her new room. She’ll be adopting this beach-loving attitude before we even know it.
