The interior design of this room started with choosing the wallpaper that matches the mid-century modern theme. For the nursery accent wall, we decided on the Retro Design Geometric Removable Wallpaper in olive color from our Mid-century Modern Wallpaper Collection. Since this pattern is quite busy, it looks best on accent walls or smaller areas. An olive color combination with the geometric pattern immediately sets the retro mood to the room – just what we needed for this one!
Let's continue with the statement pieces of this retro-inspired nursery design. The first one is the walnut color Peggy 3-in-1 Convertible Crib that encapsulates timeless mid-century modern design with its modern, clean silhouette and classic rounded spindles, while the flared tapered legs add a playful touch.
The next bold and fierce statement piece is the bright green lounge chair. Featuring embroidered art designed by Marcello Velho, this elegant and fun chair adds color and personality to the room. Its form, sleek pin-style legs, and color combination fit right in the mid-century-themed interior.
Mid-century interiors call for iconic statement pieces, and the star of this room is Poul Henningsen’s PH 5 pendant in green. Designed by Henningsen in 1958, this pendant is a Danish design icon that has gained immense global popularity. The pendant’s structure is both elegant and innovative: the beautiful, layered shades prevent glare and provide a pleasant lighting in any room.
One of the charachteristic elements of retro inspired interiors are simple geometric shapes – we chose hand-tufted Lunar Eclipse Rug in black and white for this nursery. The minimal rug will tone down the brighter colored elements.
We will complete this mid-century modern inspired nursery interior with some accent pieces that match the rooms color scheme. Let's add two fun animal posters for the walls and a faux fur fuzzy, super-cosy throw pillow. Accompanied by the the bright green lounge chair, accent elements add a cute animal theme to this retro style nursery.

It was interesting to create a mid-century modern inspired nursery design because – it is not the most common style for babies or kid's rooms. But who said that babies room always have to be only pink and blue? This retro inspired and gender neutral nursary design is also practical and can grow togather with your kid because nor the wallpaper design nor room color scheme look childish. It is always fun to explore how we can apply same patterns and color shemes to different rooms. Be bold and creative, and the magic will happen!
