There was something in the water at Modern Nest this year, as a few of our very loved team members are currently expecting babies, all within one month of each other. As nursery spaces were being dreamed up, we discovered a need for kid friendly decor to be more accessible to shop not just locally, but beyond. We searched high and low for items we believe would lend themselves well to a space that was kid friendly, but still had that Modern Nest touch. In this limited release Market by Modern Nest Kids Capsule, you will discover playful decor pieces interwoven with everyday Market finds, to create a space that will grow with you and your little one throughout the years. Continue reading to learn more about the collection, along with our top tips for designing your nursery, bedroom or playspace. You can also shop the Kids Capsule on marketbymodernnest.com. Hurry, because these pieces are limited!
TIPS FOR DESIGNING YOUR NURSERY OR KID’S BEDROOM SPACE
NO. 1 – DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOR!
There are many beautiful tones that lend themselves well to a neutral palette. Select a tone such as olive green or powder blue to create a soft base layer for the rest of the room to play off of.
NO. 2 – PLAY WITH PATTERN.
Mixing patterns is a fun way to enhance your little one’s nursery or bedroom. We adore the combination of these playful leaf and floral print pillows. Create a cozy corner reading nook, or enhance a favorite chair or bed with these charming additions.
NO. 3 – BRING IN TEXTURE TO ADD INTEREST.
Rattan baskets, wood, leather, felt or wool…all of these varying elements when paired together create a rich environment for your little one to touch and explore. The Rattan Hot Air Balloon adds a whimsical charm to any room, as well as our hand-crafted felt dogs and bunnies. Discover more beautifully textured pieces here.
NO. 4 – MAKE A STATEMENT WITH A GALLERY WALL.
Art serves as a great versatility piece. We love to mix new and vintage pieces to blend a room and make it feel collected over time. Modern Nest Designer and Market Curator Misha states, “You don’t have to be married to art. It really enhances a space. When you get tired of something, you can swap out one piece of art for something else.” The “Hunter in a Painting” and “Farm Animals” are two pieces we are loving and make a great addition to any space.
NO. 5 – A KID’S ROOM SHOULD BE FUNCTIONAL AND PLAYFUL.
You’ll want an area to display books and to hang things on the wall. This Kids Capsule has several functional pieces such as our wall hooks. We absolutely love the Peggy Hooks and Peggy Coat Rack, which incorporates wood and leather all in one.
NO. 6 – DON’T BE TOO LITERAL.
Create a space that will grow with your little one throughout the years. Aim for versatile pieces that can be used in any room of your house if needed. So many of our every day Market finds serve as the perfect items to blend within your nursery or kid’s bedroom decor for a stylish space both mom and kid will love!
