Mid century style can get very pricey, but a modern style nursery doesn’t have to empty out your savings account. Here is a mid-century style nursery for under $1000–with nods to Spage-age and the Atomic Era.
Here’s how to get the look: Use 50′s style pattern reproductions to make pillows, curtains and bedding for your little one–or if you’ve got a little extra cash to spend, scour Etsy for ready-made versions. Add some practical furniture with clean lines–Ikea is always a good place to start. Include some original 50′s style artwork and an iconic piece (like the Eames-style rocker) and include a modern mobile and some sheepskin or flokati throws/rugs to warm up the place.
As for paint color, keep it nice n’ white–or opt for very light shades of aqua.
