Nameberry Style: Robots in the Nursery

Nameberry Style columnist Elisabeth Wilborn goes back in the nursery this week, gathering prime examples of another fresh nursery theme: Robots.

Robots are the mascot of contemporary children’s design.  You will have much to choose from if you opt for a mechanized nursery theme.  Children across the board are fascinated with robots, or “o-bot!” as my two-year-old says.   They embody the suspension of disbelief that reigns in a child’s imagination, and yet they are all too real.

Here is a modern nursery that will truly grow with the child.  Each object echoes the theme.  The lighting could break into a robo dance at any moment, and the crib hops on legs!  Is that chair a transformer?  Links in the rug help put the ‘bots back together, and its circular shape softens the room.  Unify the elements against a cool grey wall – the brights will pop.
