Mid Century Modern Nursery
Adelaide’s nursery was the most fun room to put together! I took my time piecing things together over the last couple of months and I really love how it turned out. Early on, even when it was just the bright rug, the large mirror, and the mid century dresser, this room was my favorite. It felt so open, so happy, so bright (although, let me tell you, those black out curtains work magic).
When we purchased this house a few years ago this room was a lavender color and our first step was repainting everything in a bright and open white. We picked Extra White from Sherwin Williams and it left me wanting to repaint the whole house in this fresh color.
For the nursery we went with a midcentury modern theme focusing on pinks and navy with gold accents. I wanted something that was feminine and fun but would grow with her, or transition to other rooms in the house if we decided to put Lincoln and Adelaide in the same room eventually. We love having dance parties in front of the mirror and just playing together on the soft rug
Mid Century Modern Nursery Details
Keep scrolling for lots more pictures and all furniture + decor details:
^This huge abstract print from Minted.com was one of the very first pieces I picked out for the room. I coordinated picking the print and the rug and love how they’re both fun, bright, and girly…but don’t scream baby or nursery. How fun would this print be in an office? Or living room? ^These hexagon floating shelves are actually unfinished wood (Target craft section ) and you could stain them any color you’d like
^I had these favorite images from our big Europe trip when I was 7 months pregnant with Adelaide framed by Frambridge shortly after she was born. I tell her that these are the people who love her the very most, instead of thinking it’s weird to have frame pictures of her brother in her nursery 😉
^The engineering print portraits are the big DIY project for this room that I LOVE. Total they cost less than $30 to print (including the frames!) and those two pictures always make me smile.
^I LOVE the tufted back of this glider from Delta Children (we have another of their gliders in Lincoln’s nursery and they are such lifesavers during those early months of constant feeding and just s useful now for reading endless piles of stories)
^the little quotes on the pinboards say “This too shall pass” and “Adelaide Noele”
^Here’s a pretty good view of the room from the crib. You can see the other small print from Minted.com that tie in the navy and the pinks of the room.
^don’t mind me 🙂
^The most beautiful midcentury lamp from LampsPlus
^so much attitude already
^another view of the engineering prints with two pictures I shot over the last few months. Are you interested in a tutorial on how to make these? Let me know and I’ll put one together if you’d find that useful!
^For Lincoln we have a fold out changing table that I really love but this worked really well for when Adelaide was smaller and now this will transition easily from a changing table to a dresser and grow with her (or I’ll put it in the living room because this is my absolute favorite piece of furniture we own right now)
