Designing space for a child is an enjoyable process, but parents often struggle with the constantly evolving trends. Functionality and longevity – an area that grows with your baby – are also key concerns. These were just some of the issues that mom-to-be, Iva, had to deal with when choosing a theme and elements for her baby boy’s nursery.
We were excited to share one of our two new black-and-white nursery collections, Midnight and Groovy Giraffe, with Iva and her husband. Simple, modern, and minimalistic, the “monochromatic mod” theme is a timeless collection with a gender-neutral feel. The black and white contrasts are also perfect for their baby’s development. Best of all, the theme gives Iva and her husband the power to mix and match colors and patterns as their son grows.
To stay in line with the modern theme, the couple chose complementing furniture – Babyletto’s Harlow 3-in-1 Crib, the Hudson Changer Dresser, and Monte’s Joya Rocker. Together, the three pieces create a calming, sophisticated, and modern oasis for parents and baby.
Individually, the crib stands out as the centerpiece of the room. The acrylic rails combine functionality and fashion by letting the linens show through while giving mom and dad the ability to see baby resting or sleeping inside. The Hudson Changer Dresser combo ensures there is plenty of space for baby’s essentials now, and as he grows. The Monte Joya Rocker will make for tons of wonderful memories in the form of feedings, lullabies, and reading to baby.
Further adding to the functionality to the room are the Midnight Soft Nursery Hamper, which will keep baby’s clothing separate for special washing, the lumbar pillow for mom, and the Groovy Giraffe Soft Nursery Basket for storage. The playmat will also come in handy as baby grows and starts to go on playdates, days at the park, and starts enjoying tummy time at home. It’ll also transition with their son as he moves on to a toddler bed.
As if the room wasn’t perfect enough already, the crisp white walls and single black accent wall further pull the nursery together. Simple, modern, but whimsical nursery art adorn the walls and shelving of the room. It truly is a haven for the entire family.
