Sweet, Modern Nursery Decorating Ideas

Are you getting ready to welcome a new baby into the family? Odds are, whether you’re the mom, dad, or a super-excited grandparent, you’ve already been searching for modern nursery decorating ideas to get inspired as you shop for your new little one’s room. With so many themes, trends, and colors out there, your head might be spinning a bit. Well, have no fear; we’re here to help.

Modern Nursery Decorating Ideas by Miami Designers


The Miami-based designers at DKOR have tips and tricks to ensure your nursery style can easily transition to a toddler’s room—or maybe even a space for baby No. 2!

First up, think past the newborn phase. In the blink of an eye, your new baby will be crawling, walking, and running around the room. That means you need a space that can evolve over time. Picking furniture that can do double duty or that will work in an older kids’ room is key, whether that means you’re buying a convertible crib; a changing table and dresser combo; or a pouf that can be a resting spot for mom’s weary feet one month and a safe space for baby for baby to pull herself up onto the next month.

Nursery Selections

Speaking of poufs, we love this budget-friendly shaggy pouf from Crate and Barrel! Not only is it chic, but it can be used as extra seating for when friends and family drop by to coo at your newest addition.

Next, consider a neutral color scheme of basic grays and whites for the majority of the furniture and design elements (rugs, wall coverings, etc.). This neutral scheme will allow you to change up decor without breaking the bank each time. We picked a gray upholstered swivel lounge chair to complement the light gray walls.

One of the new favorite color combos for a nursery is pink and orange cream, which creates warmth and a touch of cuteness. We’ve brought those accent colors in on the accessories, from the adorable animal heads to a plush rug (good for when baby’s learning to crawl!) to a must-have storage bin.
