A Mid-Century Modern Inspired Nursery

Pin It

You’re so glamorous, baby! Glamor is not one of the first things that comes to mind when you think ‘nursery’ — especially if you’re thinking about a baby boy’s room. But new mom Maria Fe of Hello Jack is sharing her nursery with us to prove that you can design a cozy and warm nursery with a modern glam touch for a boy — and on a budget!

Child’s Name: Jack
Child’s age: 9 months
Location: Georgia
What was your inspiration for the room?
The inspiration for this room was the FermLiving Wilderness wallpaper I always knew I wanted to use. When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately thought the nursery would be the perfect room for it. The entire room palette was developed with this wallpaper in mind.

Describe your decorating style:
The design throughout my house is modern with a pop of color. I wanted to keep the nursery modern as well but add soft touches and textures. The goal was to created a warm, cozy room that would be able to grow with my son Jack.

Favorite Items: My favorite items in Jack’s nursery are those small details that tie room together. My husband has always been a fan of dinosaurs so when we found out we were having a little boy we knew we wanted to incorporate them in his room. We found them at Target for less than a dollar a piece, bought some gold and black spray paint and my husband sprayed them. It was a simple, inexpensive project that has a lot of meaning behind it.
Advice for other moms-to-be in the process of decorating their nursery: Stay true to your style. Don’t worry about trends as the always change. You style and   taste will remain even when something new comes along.
