While the rest of the house evolves into modernity, nurseries seem to remain stuck in the past.
We've all walked into cliche nurseries that look like this...
...leaving us practically choking on pink ruffles and fluff!
People desperately want to find out the sex of their baby early to avoid the dreaded "gender-neutral" baby room. Green? Yellow? Orange? *Gasp* How awful!
Let's expand our horizons, people! It's possible to bring baby up in style without resorting to pink and blue extremes! Besides, can all that baby pink and sky blue really be good for a newborn's brain??
Let's give warmer tones a second look, shall we?
GREEN: Here are a few ideas that bring "the nursery" into the modern age...babies can be cool too! Complete with Eames Elephant and Rocking Chair, this room incorporates modern, clean-lined baby furniture that actually looks good!
ORANGE: For those mid-century fans, like myself, here's a room that features vintage finds in the style of yesteryear. There's no reason baby's furniture can't include estate sale treasures re-purposed as dressers, changing tables and toy boxes!
Lastly...during my search I discovered a slew of fabulous modern mobiles, and I just have to share a few of them with you...
Happy nesting, modern mamas!
