8 modern nursery design ideas you’ll want to steal
Modern nursery design doesn’t necessarily mean pink and frilly, or blue and sporty, or covered in Elmo’s furry red likeness. Some of the best nursery spaces are clean, cool, and fully functional.
To get the modern look yourself, think of a nursery as a multi-purpose room. that should be fine your style (because really, what does baby know ?!), be comfortable and safe for baby, and give your little one a place to play and stimulate their creativity.
Need a spark for your own creativity? We’ve researched some of the coolest modern nursery design ideas.
1. The great explorer
The charcoal furniture in this nursery is the perfect neutral canvas, but we love the mural. A simple mountain design that anyone can make makes a big statement in this flying above the clouds nursery.
2. Hollywood glitter
Still want pink? Look for updated shades like this modern, understated shade. A few easy touches, like a beaded chandelier and bed canopy, add a ton of Hollywood glitz and glamor to this nursery without feeling like the small space suffers from “theme overload.”
3. Rustic retreat
A simple wood-paneled wall and neutral furniture are all it takes to make this nursery feel like its own little cabin in the woods. Bonus: once baby grows up, you have the perfect one caveman.
4. Funky and modern nursery
This nursery is funky and cool with some mid-century modern furniture and some adorable pops of color. But the best part could be this awesome cactus wallpaper. Who Said Babies Can’t Be Plugged In?
5. Dance in layers
This nursery takes mobiles to the next level with tons of brightly colored paper lanterns and, yes, you see right, a disco ball. We bet baby will never be bored in this crib. To finish off the look, refresh an old crib with a touch of shiny coral.
6. Modern modular
Don’t have a lot of space for toys? This narrow nursery uses a lot of space with hanging cubicles that can store books, stuffed animals and toys. To keep the lockers from being boring, thin honey-colored wood panels complement the accent wall.
7. Industrial baby
There is nothing funky about this nursery. The beamed ceiling gives the space an industrial and avant-garde atmosphere. The modern wood chandelier gives the room a funky focal point, while the simple fresco of trees and owls and the delicate white cradle keep the space soft.
8. Royal and bold
A nursery doesn’t have to be soft to be soft. This lavish space stands out from the crowd with matte black furniture, a beaded black chandelier, and a pop of rich color on a red accent wall.
