If your baby is boy or girl, go with timeless and modern grey as your nursery’s main color. Grey works with any bold accent shade making it modern but classic. And for the most visual bang, try layering different grey shades and patterns.
Good news for modern design lovers, soft pastels are not the best nursery choice. According to parenting guru Dr. Sears: “The best way you as a parent can stimulate baby’s vision is using black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colors. So what about those nice soft pastels that used to be so popular in baby toys and nurseries? While these may look pretty to you, they do nothing visually for your baby. Research has proven that black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development.”
When selecting a crib, there are many new and modern designs to choose from. Try something modern or different, like an oval crib. Consider using a crib that converts into baby’s first bed when a crib is outgrown. And because the crib is the most used item in a nursery, order it ahead of time. Delays happen, cribs get damaged during the delivery process and you want to allow yourself the time required for any unexpected delays.
Adults tend to spend time in baby’s nursery getting baby to sleep or watching over baby. Incorporate comfortable seating like a sofa or a daybed that encourages nap time for mom and dad, too. It’s incredible how many things a small baby needs. Create a combination of easy storage, like cabinets, baskets and drawers where clutter can be easily stored, with beautiful, modern open storage like a bookcase wall to display your baby’s favorite keepsakes.
