We admit that crocheted afghans aren't the first accessory that comes to mind when designing a modern nursery. They're pretty much as traditional as it gets. But that's why they can be such a warm contrast in a modern space and provide scrunchy texture that uber-sleek furniture needs for balance. And color? Forget about it. Remember this room and this room? Pictorial proof that afghans can be awesome. We rounded up a few on etsy to help inspire you.
