Unearthing "Organic Modern" Elements in Children's Rooms

Efforts to round up entire "Organic Modern" children's rooms have not been fruitful. Has the trend not yet caught on in children's spaces? Is it just so expensive and/or time consuming, as to be prohibitive? Or are parents who are fans of this style going for more whimsy in the nursery? We did, however, catch glimpses of the notion. Click through to see moments in (mostly) real rooms.

All of this of course begs the question, "what is Organic Modern, anyway?" It could be a hand-crocheted crib, a simple branch as clothing or curtain, a beautiful rounded natural shape cast in a sleek white resin. Our favorite might be a combination of stark modern and raw, reclaimed wood.

Perhaps the jury's still out on the definition. What does "Organic Modern" mean to you?
