25 Lovely Contemporary Nursery Decor Ideas

Contemporary decor style is actually not a style for real. Contemporary interiors are style chameleons: with streamlined silhouettes, neutral foundation pieces and careful attention to editing, they’re able to adapt on the fly to incorporate emerging trends in the design world through accessories. Contemporary spaces can embrace what feels right now — and that versatility and spontaneity is where the fun comes in. Today we are discussing nurseries in this style, which isn’t basically a style at all, so let’s see what’s new and fresh you can do in your nursery!

Colors

Contemporary nurseries can be done in a very wide choice of color palettes, from all-neutral or pastel to bold and contrasting, they can feature black accent walls, purple accent rugs and much more. As it’s a kid’s room, don’t limit yourself with restraint color palettes and add colorful touches here and there to make your space cooler or at least go for black and white for a modern feel and more eye-catchiness.

Furniture

Provide modern and contemporary furniture for your nursery. Mid-century modern furniture and style on the whole is totally back, so it’s on now, and contemporary sleek or curved furniture is what will definitely catch an eye with its sculptural shapes and lines. Pay attention to acrylic cribs and shelving units as they look super modern and bold.

Organic Accents

Organic touches are extremely important for contemporary spaces because they bring a welcoming feel to them, and these can be stained wood (furniture and accessories), potted plants and even trees, baskets for storage and various artworks. All these pieces will naturally accent your nursery making it feel more contemporary-like and making it more inviting at the same time.

Textural Textiles

Contemporary interiors can pickpocket the best elements of other styles, for example, boho or Mediterranean. Think of adding a Berber rug, a Moroccan blanket, some layered rugs including jute and faux fur, lots of textural and printed pillows – they will add more interest to the room and will make it more welcoming.

Declutter

Decluttering is very important for a contemporary space, and though kid’s rooms are always cluttered, you can still try to reduce that. Reduce the number of furniture in the room, which will make it more comfortable and look larger, and provide more storage space to keep the space in order. Feeling inspired to create your own contemporary nursery? Go ahead!
