Nurseries have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the heaps of stuffed animals and the limited choices of pink, blue and yellow decor – thankfully!

Now, your new baby can sleep in high design in his or her own modern nursery. We found a few inspiring designs to share with you (and feel free to share them with your friends who are expecting a little one!)

A Modern Take on Noah’s Ark

This baby nursery used an age-old theme in a new, modern design. Simple cut-outs of animal shapes in a muted color cover the wall, while the rest of the room stays understated:

Grow with Me Furniture

One of the great things about choosing a modern design for your baby nursery is that you can choose furniture that will grow along with the baby. The changing table becomes the dresser and the armoire goes from holing blankets to storing toys.

The Halifax line in our PDBHomestore.com collection is great for this. The white mahogany is sturdy furniture with a look that will match a crib today, bunk beds in a few years and can go along with them to college:

The dresser is the perfect height for a changing table:

    Oh my gosh I adore this article – some of the ideas in here are so simple and beautiful! It just goes to show that you don’t need to necessarily go flamboyant and OTT to achieve the most stunning results! Articles like this get me so excited to get stuck into the actual decoration of my baby’s nursery! I feel like I’ve spent hour upon hour scouring the internet (mainly Pinterest) for inspiration and I’ve got so many ideas that I feel my head explode! I don’t know if any other mummy’s have experienced this but the room design has gone from princess palace, to secret garden, to fairy utopia, to boho chic to butterfly paradise, and that’s all in the space of the last couple of hours! There’s just so much I want to do! Gahh the internet can be such a deep hole – I genuinely even found myself considering buying a luxury cinderella carriage bed at one point and I haven’t even given birth to my little girl yet! I had to take a step back from the computer at one point because who knows what I’d have bought! In reality I know that when it comes to it a simple but beautiful bedroom is the best way forward for my unborn little princess. As much as I want to live out my childhood fantasies of carriages and princess beds and golden chandeliers – in reality this is so ridiculously impractical! I just need to stay away from Pinterest and focus on getting a beautiful nursery that will suit my baby and our house.
