A Persian Rug and a Mid-Century Nursery

 

A week ago, I was inspired by a little Persian runner on Chairish with colors I thought would be fantastic for a nursery: yellow, blue, and red. A few nights later I had dinner with two former coworkers (and now good friends!), one of which has two adorable, quickly growing twin toddlers, so the topic naturally turned to them. I took that as a sign to put together a nursery designed around the rug.

I love the combination of Persian or “traditional” style rugs with a MidMod aesthetic, so needless to say I went with that theme–and after finding a few cute vintage pieces, including a vintage Eames style rocker in bright yellow and an amazing new, modern crib from DwellStudio, the look came together. It ended up being a fairly modern look with bits of Mid-Century inspiration.

Now I’m not looking into having kids anytime soon, but I find nursery design so fun! It’s definitely a place to take the objects you loved as a child and create a whimsical space for your own…or simply enjoy designing with less “adult” items (notice the Nate Berkus llama–I HAD to add it!). Enjoy!
