50 Shades of Gray (In the Nursery)

I just can’t get enough of the gray trend in nursery design, from bedding to decor—and now even furniture! Just scroll the pages of the Project Nursery Gallery, and you’ll find all the shades of gray in every shape, shade, and form!

From simple gray stripes…

To solid gray walls…

It’s the perfect color for girls or boys!

If the color on all four walls seem like a big commitment, some of the most popular furniture companies are now offering their cribs in the popular shade too.

    These are really beautiful cribs! I especially like the second and the third ones because they look so elegant and classic.

  • Florence Amber

    Indeed, gray is in! Even the book “Fifty Shades of Gray” is so popular now.

  • Frauline Melfi

    That’s one book I am really curious about and I would really love to read it and see why that much hype.

  • Tasha Cune

    I just read a fun review of the book. The reviewer said it was written by someone who loved the Twilight series but was annoyed it didn’t have enough sex in it. So for mommies who have read it, is it true that it really is “mom porn?”

    I’m doing gray in my baby girl’s room, it’s really on trend, and it’s a great way to make things versatile so you can change it up whenever you want, and are not locked into just one colorway theme!

  • Misty

    I like the grey. It’s a great refreshing feeling that just seeing pink or blue plastered everywhere.

  • Zen

    Gray is a very flexible color. I think you can pair it with any of a lot of other colors and it would still look great and soothing to the eyes.

  • Diane Mathias

    Zen:Except maybe gray and purple. Somehow I can’t picture them good together. Not even green and gray.

  • Braedyn

    Does any one know where the bedding, blanket, and lamp are from?

  • Heather

    I LOVE my grey nursery. We left 3 walls white and our crib wall is a lovely grey and our crib bedding is grey and white damask print with beige ties and accents. My glider is also beige to tie it all together and we opted for a few pink/girly accents.

    Are there more pictures from the second nursery? I absolutely love the white and yellow curtains!
