I wanted to design a nursery that wasn't too cutesy so that it would grow with Adelaide through the years. I also wanted it to be comfortable and soothing.


Design Inspiration

 A friend of mine had a yellow and gray wedding which I thought was gorgeous so that inspired my color scheme. I also have a new found love for elephants so I threw some in for good measure!

Decorating Style

I am pretty practical when it comes to design. Furniture needs to be comfortable and functional not just pretty to look at!

Project Details

Wall Color: Behr, "Dolphin Fin"

Fabric: Waverly "Linen Bedazzle Silver Lining" "Sidewalk Stripe Silver Lining".

Crib: Sorelle City Lights,

 Glider: Little Castle Valentino glider in Pebble Grey with custom piping (used the Waverly fabric).

Pouf: CB2 Knitted Pouf in Graphite

Dresser: Ikea Hemnes  with yellow polka dot knobs from Cost Plus

Daybed: Ikea Hemnes,

Artwork: and Etsy shop Nebulous Kingdom


Favorite Items

The fabric is my absolute favorite. It was the first thing I picked out and it all flowed from there. My mom made all of the bedding for the daybed and the crib so that is very special to me.


Don't spend a fortune on the crib. I spent the most on fabric which made  the biggest impact. I also add touches like new knobs to help make the dresser look more custom.

    Beautiful! How did you work the changing table on the ikea dresser? It looks like a box around the changing pad. Can that be purchased? Do you recall where?

    Where did you get your bedding? I am going to do a gray & yellow nursery and this is the only bedding I have seen that I like. Did you make it? If so where did you get the fabric?

    The bedding was made by my mom and the fabric is by Waverly Silver Lining. The polka dot sheet is from Pottery Barn Kids where do have a cute yellow and gray line of bedding now. They didn’t when I was looking!

    I adore how her name is Adelaide, and you have the Guys’ and Dolls song that Miss Adelaide sings framed. It’s a subtle but an amazing detail!

    Oh Kelly how I love you! Very few people pick up on that. We named her Adelaide because I am a huge musical theater geek :)

    I’m looking for dresser knobs exactly like that. I looked on cost plus but didn’t have luck finding them. Do you have a link I could maybe go to. They are perfect for the gray and yellow nursery I’m doing! :)

    Fabulous nursery! Did your mother also make the gray coverlet on the day bed? If so, where did you find the fabric? Thanks!
