There are many different ways you can decorate your baby’s nursery — you could go classic, you could go girly (or boy-ish) or you could do it up full of the Force with a Star Wars theme. But one of our absolute favorite nursery styles is modern. It’s clean, it’s simple and (generally) gender neutral. If you’re aspiring to go mod with your nursery staples, we’ve got 20 chic suggestions for you.

2. Nursery Works Lydian Crib ($6,900): This crib is the ultimate in modern luxury. The 24-karat gold square base raises the floating frame made of American sourced solid black walnut. It also converts to a toddler bed (which for the price, makes it far more worth it).

Modern Clock for Kids

16. Vitra Omar the Owl Clock ($185): Designed by George Nelson Associates, Omar the Owl is one of the adorable animal clocks in the Zoo Timer collection of children’s clocks. It’s a super stylish way to keep time.

19. The Land of Nod Parkside Toy Box ($299): Store all those stuffies and toys in this sleek and chic toy chest, and you’ll never know the chaos that lives inside. There will always be chaos in a child’s room, so might as well hide it.

Kid bookcase

20. Oeuf Classic Walnut Mini Library ($678): You’ll need a place to store those precious copies of Goodnight Moon, Pat the Bunny and Guess How Much I Love You. This mini library is just the thing. It also has cupboards to hide toys (and again, we love to hide clutter).
