Warm Bohemian

Modern Boho Terracotta Small Space Nursery Inspiration

A snug space posed no obstacle to Jacqueline Sarah’s (@jacquelinesarah) colorful decorating style. Working with only a 35 sq. foot pocket in her 100 sq. foot RV, she created a boho nursery with our Gelato Mini Crib that feels warm and nostalgic, reminiscent of groovy 1960s interiors but refined. To make a statement in a small space, pick décor that is thematically consistent, that maybe even tells a story. Here, the combination of bright terracotta and the exposed wooden floorboards evokes the outdoors. As if in response, the setting sun motif on the wallpaper and the rattan sunburst mirror bring to mind the sky and stars. A board and batten accent wall is an elegant way to add texture, and can make a space feel larger and deeper than it actually is. Unlike parallel board and batten siding which was characteristic of the Victorian era, the irregular branching pattern of the panels here brings a bit of modern whimsy to a time-honored architectural tradition.

Earthy and Modern

Incorporating earth tones in our homes is a way to bring the outside in and to recreate the soothing effect of lush landscapes. If you want to design a nursery that is nature-inspired but minimal, take a cue from @modern_bohem’s contemporary yet inviting space. When working with a cool-toned green like Sherwin Williams’ Rosemary here, warm up your space with wooden furniture that has a sun-bleached look, like our Hudson Crib in Washed Natural. To elevate your nursery and add dramatic flair, consider glamorous accents like the brass nursery mobile and sleek black end table. Beachy boho pieces like our cozy cream Cali Glider, the open-weave lampshade, linen pouf, and textured ivory rug balance the richness of the pewter green wall and soften the modern shapes in the space.

Neutral Boho

We love how Adri Delgado’s (@adridelgado__) bright and airy nursery combines warm pops of color and soft textures of Scandinavian minimalism. The boho rainbow decal incorporates a whole range of muted earth tones, from light salmon to russet, and forms the perfect contrasting backdrop for the white Hudson Crib. After making a colorful centerpiece for your nursery, choose versatile, neutral furniture that makes a statement in a different way. Here, our Hudson Crib and cream Toco Glider and Ottoman stand out for their brightness and create space for more texture and embellishment in the room. The macramé wall hanging, classic plushies, and wooden accents in pale tones all complement each other and contribute to the nursery’s effortless beauty.

Botanical and Playful

Botanical, fruit-themed farmhouse nursery with green board and batten. Featuring babyletto's Scoot Crib

DIY maven Courtney Lawrence’s (@courtneylawrencestudio) clementine-themed nursery featuring our white Scoot Crib practically sprouts with life. This nursery is a wonderful example of how you can balance artistic whimsy and functionality. When using a playful pattern like the bright fruit and leafy sprigs on this hand-painted wallpaper, remember to ground the busyness with solid colors. Courtney used a warm olive tone (Sherwin Williams’ Secret Garden) for her board and batten wall and her shelves and organizers, which makes the space feel orderly and stylistically cohesive. When repeating a motif throughout a room, mix and match accessories for character. Lush nursery-safe plants, framed artwork, and antique knickknacks enhance this nursery’s charm and make it feel lived-in despite its tidiness.
