Modern Nursery Inspiration

Modern Nursery Inspiration

Preparing for baby comes with a lot of mental checklists - take the vitamins, pack the hospital bag, make the appointments - but the ultimate nesting activity is always decorating the nursery! With so many beautiful furniture and decor options available now, more moms are opting to decorate the nursery in a way that reflects their style and the rest of the home rather than overtly baby-focused decor. After all, you'll be spending almost as much time in there as your little babe! We put together some of our favorite modern nursery inspiration and a few tips to help you create a space you'll love to spend time in that also reflects all your hopes for your sweet new little one. 

Start with a focal piece of decor

If you're feeling overwhelmed with all the options, try starting with one piece you love and building the design around it, like Stephanie of Parker Drive Design did with these fun framed prints from Rifle Paper Co!

Keep it Bright & Minimal

When in doubt, you can't go wrong with a bright, minimal design. And bonus - it's a great gender-neutral nursery idea if you're waiting to find out the gender!
