Cribspiration: Mid-Century Abstract
Just because the nursery is for a new, adorable baby, that doesn't mean the room can't be chic. A well-designed baby room will create an inviting and soothing environment for both the parents and the child. For natural colors, sleek lines, and beautiful abstract art, go for a mid-century abstract design. Mid-century modern design draws on the low-profile furniture and decor of the middle of the 20th century. Read on for some cribspiration.
1. Light and Natural Color Palette
Steer clear of primary colors for your mid-century nursery. The room should feel bright and airy with white or cream linens and natural wood accents. If you're looking for accent colors, go for muted or pastel shades.
2. Abstract Art
Bring in touches of the abstract with wall art. Splashes of color or geometric designs will inspire the imagination of your child as they grow. Creating nursery art could even be a fun DIY project as you get closer to the due date.
3. Geometric Wallpaper
No safari or circus wallpaper for you. Instead, a simple one- or two-color geometric wallpaper will fit the mid-century abstract aesthetic. If you're nervous about covering the whole room in a geometric design, stick with one accent wall right behind of the crib.
4. Accent Rugs
Bring the abstract design into the rug as well. An accent rug will tie the whole design of the room together. Plus, it will be a favorite place to play once Baby gets a little older and can scope out colors and shapes.
5. Neutral Baby Decor
Now that the walls and floor have been given the mid-century abstract treatment, it's time to think about the little decor items that turn this room into a home. Stick with neutral colors for toys, like this white lamb lovie. A few pops of color here and there can go a long way as well.
