Featured Room: A Modern Lavender Nursery

Pin It

This modern lavender nursery comes from CCN reader Stacie M. of Encinitas, CA. She wanted to create a unique space for her new baby girl in her new modern home that was simple and sweet, but not too girly. This bird-themed nursery is fresh and modern — without feeling too “themey.” This new mama managed to find a few bird-themed decor pieces that fit perfectly into the room, and she also created some custom prints to hang above the changing area (and in the adjacent bathroom) to decorate her little girl’s walls. They’ve got a retro vibe going on — and we dig it!

Child’s Name: “Baby B” since she is named with a B initial after my mom.
Child’s Age: 3 months
Location: Encinitas, CA

What was your inspiration for the room?
Boon makes a bird mobile called the “peep” and I just loved the simplicity of it. This started the whole bird theme. I wanted something cute and girly, but not TOO cute and girly!

Describe your decorating style.
I love all things modern, clean and simple. We recently built our new house so I started with a completely clean slate for the nursery. While this was intimidating at first, once I settled on the bird theme with the lavender & grey colors and logged onto etsy.com, the rest was easy!

Favorite items in the room.
Lavender bird theme hat stand: this was originally my little brothers when he was a baby – he is now 21! It was red and blue and covered in trucks. My sister painted this and stenciled the birds on it. Best baby shower gift ever!

Any advice for other mamas and mamas-to-be designing their nurseries?
Stay away from the big chain baby stores because all of their stuff looks the same. Websites and blogs like Chic & Cheap Nursery are such a great resource for finding fresh ideas and inspiration. No need to limit yourself to “baby theme” stuff either… weddings, showers, and general home decor resources can be just as great!

Room Resources.
Etsy.com was my definite go-to resource for this room. I had so much fun exploring all of the creative handmade items and working with so many great people. A special thank you goes out to to Katie, Sarah and Collen from One World Baby who made the gorgeous custom crib bedding and changing pad cover. They were so fun to work with and their products are just amazing!
