Who says a nursery can only have one theme? “The jumping-off point was somewhere along the lines of midcentury-global-woodlands,” says designer Tyler Papp of Heather Fulkerson Interiors, who was guided by a Pinterest board from homeowner Lauren Mason on behalf of baby Parker, seen above.

Rock on
A charcoal-gray rocker from CB2 references midcentury design in an ergonomic way.

Pattern play
The area rug’s colorful pattern references all the elements in the room. It’s from, one of Papp’s favorite bargain sources.

Cuddly companions
Cheeky woodland creatures from Potter & Mason spark the imagination.

Wow walls
“I fell in love with the idea of a bold wallpaper accent wall behind the crib, so that was my initial inspiration,” Mason says. The designers found this peel-and-stick version on Etsy with just enough pattern for the Brookhaven nursery.

Budget find
A wood-topped side table fits the room’s organic theme and was a budget-friendly discovery from HomeGoods.

Nursery decor doesn’t always mean cutesy colors, says designer Tyler Papp, who combined gray and brown for a sophisticated point of view. What’s more, she adds, “this entire space was affordable, and we tried to use pieces and colors that can grow with the baby as he gets older.”
