Esther of Buy Modern Baby has put together yet another inspired nursery design board for us – this time combining a cozy cream with dark woods and touches of dusty pink.

Esther says, "it’s white, but it’s a beautiful creamy warm white that goes really well with dark woods. I stayed away from white for a long time, but the last two rooms I’ve painted have been white. If you need any convincing that white is a great nursery option, we’ve got a Pinterest board that will prove it." Check it out and see what you think!
