I tried to put together a design that wasn't overly "baby." If you're looking for a slightly more sophisticated nursery that can grow with your baby, I think it works well to substitute a mature color, like navy, for a more traditional color like baby blue. A neutral color scheme with the beige and navy allows accent colors like orange, red and turquoise to really pop.
I love that Raskog kitchen cart from Ikea. I'm not a mom yet, but I figured it might be nice to have a mobile cart with diapers, towels, whatever other essentials a new parent might need. The Baxton Studio Letterio White Cradle Chair is a nice modern touch and has a small footprint, which is great because my friend's nursery is a small room that needs to be multifunctional.
