Fresh & Bright: Decidedly Modern Nurseries & Kids' Rooms

Best of 2012

What makes a room "modern"? Modern style is characterized by clean, sleek lines, simplicity, graphic elements, pure colors and a disdain for clutter. Items distilled to their essence. A modern look is popular for children's bedrooms (especially for boys I've noted) and here are ten of our favorites from the past year:

Tom's Modern Unisex Nursery in the Netherlands
Axel's Clean & Cozy Nursery
Nixon's Cool, Modern Pad
Noah's Nautical Nest
K's Smile-Inducing Nursery
Asher's Modern & Clean in Aberdeen
Casimir's Modern Finnish Nursery
My Room: Ellia Marin
Ike's City Skyline
Jack's Merry Menagerie

Welcome to Apartment Therapy's Best of 2012 roundup! From December 19 through January 1 we are rounding up our favorite (and your favorite) posts from the past year.
