10 Must-Haves for a Chic Modern Nursery
These days, we’re enthralled in all things minimalist and modern when it comes to our home décor. And while a common misconception might be that the trend can easily turn too stoic and cold, we’re setting out to prove that it’s actually quite the opposite. In fact, we’ve found ourselves dying for all things modern when it comes to our baby nurseries as well. Cuddling up with our little one on a sheepskin rug, surrounded by an acrylic lamp, artistic mobile, and rounded rocking chair? Yes please.
Drawing inspiration from the OG modern-day, modern-style nursery maven, Kim Kardashian, we’re jumping off with her Vetro Lucite crib that we kind of wish we could sleep in ourselves—if they made them in kind mattress size, of course. The crib, debuting in Vogue’s April 2014 issue, is one we still dream about and can’t wait to design a whole room with this modern bed as the centerpiece. Starting now.
When it comes to modern décor, it’s important to look for clean lines, using bright white hues as your base. From there, mix in bold blacks and light pastels, as well as seeking out metallic detailing and clear acrylic shapes. Keep the décor to a minimum, but make sure to mix in some graphic shapes and abstract works of art when you can. With a modern-inspired nursery, choose each item with care, as every single piece will be a statement-maker in and of itself. We’re particularly drawn to pieces that truly look like works of art, ranging from the smallest whimsical animal sculptures to the largest dressers and beyond.
