Mid-Century Modern


It’s been a while since we have posted a new blog here! Once we found out we were pregnant, we decided to stop full-time RVing and settle back into our house – after a full renovation!

The past year has been full of sleepless nights and baby giggles. Life looks quite different than it did!

Part of the fun of being pregnant… decorating the nursery! But, it took me a few months to decide what theme I wanted for the nursery because, really, I didn’t want a “theme.” I love mid-century design but wanted to tie in something from our travels without being too cheesy.

Mid-Century National Park Inspired Nursey

I spent too much time on Pinterest trying to find some inspiration, but I couldn’t find exactly what I was going for. When looking for artwork for our house I came across the Anderson Design Group’s National Park posters. We had seen them at the various National Park visitors centers, and I was obsessed. They were the perfect anchor-point for the mid-century, National Park- inspired nursery I had in my head.
The National Park Posters paired with these adorable Little Unicorn bison sheets and West Elm Mid-Century Modern crib – my vision was coming to life!
Life is a great adventure. Accept it in such a spirit.

National Park Decorations

With the main pieces in place, it was time to tie it together with the decorations. We kept it simple with this National Parks children book, a National Parks map, and a quote for the man himself – Theodore Roosevelt. We also received the sweetest knitted bison stuffed animal and little knitted RV rattle.

Mid-Century Modern Touches

I relied on the accessories and decorations to bring in the National Park theme. So I need a mid-century modern changing table. I loved this one from West Elm, but it was out of the budget. After lots of searching, I found this Mid-Century Modern Media Console that was the perfect height for a changing table. It’s been perfect! I use the cabinet side for diapers and diapering supplies, shoes, hats, etc., and the drawers for his clothes.
Above the changing table, we hung shelves (mostly for decoration, but it’s been helpful for diaper cream and such!), and we hung a round gold mirror from Target.
