vibe
Mum, LolaT, wanted to create a clean, modern look after creating a more traditional room for her first child. She used the colours orange, white and duck egg blue as her inspiration.

who lives here?
Marcelo 2, in Utah, USA.

materials
On the walls is Behr paint from Home Depot in Celtic Grey 490E-3 and Valley Mist 460E-2 mixed by LolaT to produce the shade she was after. The shelves are white Lack wall shelves from Ikea. On the ceiling are five inch downlights with dimmers to illuminate the features on the walls. The window has white blinds and plain white curtains. On the floor is wall-to-wall cream carpeting and a zebra print rug.

furniture
The cot is an Oef Classic Crib and the chair is a Nurseryworks Storytime Rocker in citrus.

baby space fave
The orange dog tail hooks and monster decals that add a funky, playful element.

top tips
"Splurge on key items and save on smaller details by shopping at discount stores or making items yourself."
"The modern look requires restraint."
Stick to the colour scheme even in the smallest details.
