5 ideas for your modern nursery


by Adriane Jungues

If you ask me what is the main element while designing a room like this, I would say it is the future user of this space. Nurseries are such a pleasure to design because you know that a tiny and fresh little baby will be admiring it from the very beginning.

But although a nursery design has an unborn baby in mind, ultimately, the parents are the one making the decisions and everything will go much smoother if they know what they want or if not, let us, designers, think for and with them.

In this particular project, the clients were myself and my husband and to be honest, my husband is quite an easy client and I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do.

Here is the main ideas for our baby #2 nursery:

  1. Work with a lot of existing furniture around the house from our my first daughter’s former nursery
  2. Gender neutral
  3. Keep it simple – clutter free
  4. Mainly modern style with contemporary accents
  5. Chosen colors – Mint and Orange/Tangerine


Here are some inspirational projects that could put you on the right track – Grey and yellow tones go a long way for gender neutral and modern nursery designs!

I’m an architect for almost 11 years now. Wow! Saying or typing it kind of scares me.

For at least half of that time I imagine keeping a place I could write about this career I chose, ideas, projects, reflections about architecture and although I manage to start a few writings in the past, nothing really came to life or became real enough.

So this is another attempt. My life has changed so much in the last few years that architecture seems to be hidden somewhere and I feel I need to pet my architect side a bit. You know, so it doesn’t freak out, get sick and die.

So welcome, hope you enjoy, feel free to stop by.



A little background, shall we?

I became an architect in Brazil, after 5 years of university. Three years later, I moved to Canada and it was when I was no longer an architect. It’s kind of sad. Only three years calling myself an architect for real.

Fast forward, it’s now been almost 8 years in Canadian soil and there are no regrets on my decision on moving here. I do feel sorry though, for having left my title behind. You see, I’ve been working with architectural field since I got here, but it’s not the same thing. I’ll always wonder what I would have built if I had stayed.

Anyway, we’ll never know, unless someone find the access door to an alternate reality. Until then, let’s focus on this reality.
