Ask Design Mom: Nursery Design Inspiration

August 16, 2007

Hi Gabrielle.
My name is Jill and I am also in New York. I have a 2 year old and am due with a second in October. I have decided to redo my nursery with a modern design. Do you know of any good sites that show completed modern nurseries or of someone in NY that can help me with it but not charge me a fortune. Thanks, Jill

Smart question, Jill. And congratulations on your upcoming new addition. There are lots of place I go to find excellent Nursery Decor inspiration — modern, traditional or just plain cool. Hopefully some of them will inspire you as well.

1) Apartment Therapy Nursery regularly features nursery tours of readers’ homes.

2) The Cookie Nesting blog also features nursery/home tours. Their two most recent tours of Elizabeth Dunker Gothenburgs’s home (the photo above) and Esther Veereschild’s home are both super-inspiring.

3) If you can get your hands on some now-out-of-print copies of Martha Stewart Baby or Kids, they consistently featured gorgeous nurseries. Some photos may be available on the Martha Stewart website. Or, my sister Jordan posted instructions on how to order back issues here.

4) Request catalogs or visit websites of companies that offer great home products for children. ModernSeed, Ikea and NurseryWorks have photos of fantastic nurseries.

5) Browse flickr for great ideas.

This website (factory kids from the Netherlands) has the most inspirational photos I’ve seen anywhere. The photos make you want to catch the next flight to Amsterdam!

Am I missing something obvious about how to get around the Cookie nesting website? Every time I go to their website, I just get rerouted back in circles to their homepage when I’m trying to find the house tours. (Even when I clicked on your link, I couldn’t find the tours.) Help!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if
you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
