Modern Boho Nursery
It took us up until, well, now, to decide on a direction for baby girl’s nursery. We finally settled on a modern boho nursery vibe after we found our jumping off point. Then like everything else, it all came together pretty quickly! We aren’t much into decorating really theme-y or babyish, more decorating a room that they will grow into.
Our house has been a whole lot of hurry up and wait thanks to the time of year we moved in (winter!), priorities shifting, and supply chain craziness. We knew we wanted the kids’ bedrooms to be a focus so they have a comfortable place in our new home. We had started with E2 shared room, only to be held up with the reality of how much work the room would be, and waiting on things like time (ha!). A curtain went out of stock, so I stalked Anthropologie for weeks and ordered the only available too big size, and my mother in law hemmed it for me (which hysterically, now they are back in stock in all sizes)… and then delays in getting our carpet. But fingers crossed, that room should be completed in early June, so stay tuned!
Anyway, while I wait (im)patiently for the carpet for that room, I have been full steam ahead on baby girl’s nursery. And as of today, we are less than 100 days until her arrival! Like the rest of our house, it needed to be completely refreshed. I am talking filling in the one million holes in the wall, pulling up carpet, repairing and caulking trim, and spraying it.
This is how we purchased the house. The sellers left a lot of things, so we threw this bed frame in this extra room and called it good until I sold it (bless you, Facebook marketplace!). What you can’t really see here is the fact that something was locked/died in here. The carpet was destroyed, even torn up at the doorways. The window frames were scratched and chewed. And also one million nail holes in the wall… we certainly have our work cut out for us!
We sold the bed and cleared it all out. This is using a wide angle lens so it is a little hard to get a proper feel for the size, but it really is a huge room. Tons of potential! These gorgeous bay windows highlight the best view of the house. And you bet I planned the crib and glider placement around capturing those views!
We pulled the carpet up at the end of March so I could get the trim cleaned up and painted, only to be told the next day that the carpet was delayed another month. Which only meant more time and less stressed timeline for me!
Turning around there is a good size closet that Dustin will add some built ins. To the left of this frame is the bathroom.
So that’s where we are at now! It all is coming together pretty quickly, I just need to get my rear I gear and finish painting while everything begins to arrive.

Crib– (another option here!) So funny story, I changed my mind last minute on this one. Before we found out we were having a girl, we had ordered a bedroom suite with the crib, dresser, and nightstands, planning ahead to the bedroom post the baby stage. Well, as time crept on and projected delivery dates kept getting pushed out, I was getting the urge to do something a little different. This crib is a little on the girlier side, a tad more boho, and matches well with the other dresser I chose! (If you want to see our original choices, check out the crib, dresser, and nightstands. I still love them!).
Crib Sheets– I mean… can you even! So sweet, not crazy girly, and just the right amount of pattern. We are getting a couple less expensive crib sheets too for you know, the inevitable blow out and a necessary quick sheet change.
Artwork– This isn’t our exact art, but is has a very similar vibe! Watercolor style florals in a muted blush and green accents with a sleek metal frame is exactly the vibe we were going for.
Dresser– Again, an item that will be used beyond baby years, so we were fine with spending a little more to get something that was good quality to last years. This one is such a classic! And will work great as a changing table with the changing pad on top.
Curtains– these were actually the first thing I knew I wanted for the room. The nursery has an amazing bay window, so these luxurious velvet curtains would be a dramatic way to frame them in and accentuate the incredible view! We are using two short bars on each side versus the traditional bar (we can’t really because of the angle of the wall). These are the rods I traditionally use.
Hanging Chair– because the room is on the larger size, we needed some things to fill it so it didn’t feel too sparse. A little reading nook is the perfect solution! While the baby won’t be able to use it for quite a while, it will serve as a sweet reading nook, even for the other kids.
Leather Ottoman– I had a very similar one for Scarlett’s nursery (8 years ago!!) and it lasted until this past year, when it felt its demise to a child sumo jumping on it. It will be a sweet reminder of the first nursery I designed, this time in a rich brown leather. And this is very usable even after the nursery stage!
Floating Bookshelves– I have seen these in a few places and I love how they are so visually light, and they let the books be the art!
Throw Blanket– we grabbed one from our Home Goods, but this one is very similar. This will live on the glider for the impending long nights of feeding and possible naps.
Glider– we ordered our glider from a local design company, but this has a very similar vibe! We wanted to make sure there was enough visual interest in the room, so getting a glider in a neutral but in a subtle pattern was the perfect was to do that. This would work really well for any gender, and can be used anywhere in the house after the baby stage! Here is another option without a pattern.
Wall color will be Accessible Beige by Sherwin Williams.

So that’s where we are at today! Next week we enter the two month countdown until baby arrives. So that is my cue to get back to painting…
Tell me what you think? Are you a theme nursery person, or do you err more towards decorating the room beyond the baby stage like me?
