Room of the Week // Modern Toile Nursery

I have a soft spot in my heart for exposed brick walls.  Having lived the “loft life” for several years, I know brick can dominate the room and may dictate your decor to some extent, but I say embrace it!  While I do like the look of white painted brick, there is something edgy, rustic, and real about plain old exposed brick.

I am also a big fan of a modern take on a traditional toile de jouy fabric. Though typically used in French decor, a toile can be absolutely darling for a baby.

And with that, I share with you one of the best nurseries I’ve seen in awhile:


Brick. Pink toile. Soft grey. Seagrass baskets. Casual fun. What a sweet nursery by NYC designer Jenny Wolf.

Though you may not have the exposed brick in your own home, you can certainly pull inspiration from the traditional toile canopy, clean-lined furniture, and overall relaxed feel of the room above.

To give you an idea, I pulled together a few sources that would be a great start for a gender-neutral nursery:



  1. Toile N Around” by Waverly, available through Tonic Living
  2. Custom pillows, also through Tonic Living
  3. Turning Pendant from West Elm
  4. Seagrass Hamper from Restoration Hardware, Baby & Child
  5. Stokke crib
