Nursery Inspiration: Eco-chic Baby

Nursery Inspiration: Eco-chic Baby

Green is in, and we’re not just talking about the color. Going green is not only good for the earth but also for baby and you! As we become more eco-conscious so does the world around us. Finding eco-friendly products to decorate your home has become easier and more stylish than ever. Say goodbye to the dull-neutrals and hello to this month’s nursery inspiration: eco-chic baby.

GREENGUARD Product Certification

Look for the GREEN....

The GREENGUARD Certification that is. All GREENGUARD certified products are made from 100% eco-friendly, organic materials and their wear emissions are low. Modern Nursery's fan favorite furniture brands, Oeuf and Babyletto are GREENGUARD Certified! They are also part of our Complete Nursery Collections.

The Brooklyn Desk has extendable legs, allowing it to grow with your child!

Make it last

Choose pieces that will grow with your baby. This will save you money in the long run and it helps reduce waste. Try getting a crib with a conversion kit that can transition your crib to a toddler or day bed. This will also help ease transitioning from crib to a big kid bed much easier on your child and you. Getting a drawing table with extendable legs so that it (literally) grows with your child, such as Oeuf's Brooklyn Desk, is another money saving and green furniture hack.

Check for Details

When shopping for organic or eco-friendly products always check the details. A low or no-volatile organic compound (VOC) painted products means that there are no harmful fumes that is linked to respiratory illness that could effect your child. Look for rugs that are made with non-toxic or polluting dyes. A celebrity favorite are the Lorena Canals Washable Rugs. They're easy to clean (just toss them in the wash), light weight (double as a playmat), and are eco-friendly!

 Lorena Canals rugs are eco-friendly, machine washable and match any aesthetic!

There's always so much excitement when creating your child's first room. Designing an eco-friendly nursery helps keep our planet green and creates a safe environment for baby. Go green, go eco-chic baby!
