Aqua and Gray Chevron Nursery


  • PamGinocchio

    What a lovely nursery! I love that you were so inspired by Pinterest and project nursery during the planning process. The clouds are so cute! And the color palette is so much fun. Thank you for sharing!

  • Stella

    This room looks really cool and breezy. It’s the kind of colors that melt away your stress after a hard day’s work.

    Do you know what the name of the crib is?

  • lberkeley

    Thank you so much! It really was so much fun :)

  • lberkeley

    It is the “Babi Italia Eastside Lifestyle Crib” in white. We got ours at Babies R’ Us in Feb.

    Did you mix the two paints together for the wall color?

  • Sophie

    I love this design…and I’m looking to do something similar. I would like to know if you mixed the paints as well. I’m going this weekend to get some samples!

  • lberkeley

    Thanks so much! The four main walls were painted with the Refreshing pool and the wall areas inside the bay window were the Glacier Bay by Behr.

  • Sabrina

    Hi! I have a question, you mentioned two paint colors, which was used on the walls? Thanks :) It’s beautiful!!!

  • dmtarrant

    I love this nursery… love the colors and how detailed and crafty you are. I was wondering where did you get the vintage alarm clock… I would like to put one of those in my nursery. Thank you

    Hi Thanks so much!! The main walls were painted with Refreshing Pool by Behr.

  • Lberkeley

    Thanks for the kind words! I had so much fun with this project. I knew I wanted this type of clock but I was surprised at how hard it was to find in my colors. I looked everywhere even online and finally I found this one at Hobby Lobby. It was originally pink but I spray painted it blue. I do think it adds a nice touch ;)

    I adore this nursery. It’s done perfectly with the vintage elements and the modern design. I have been looking for inspiration that has that Anthroplogie feel. Great Job!

  • ssoulliere

    I love the bedding and have been looking at Carousel to design our gender neutral bedding. do you know what fabric colors you used for this look?

  • Niqui

    This is perfect. Lots of sweet personalized touches, and you didn’t have to break the bank to do it! Great job!

  • Amanda

    I LOVE THIS NURSERY! I too want to stick on a TIGHT budget as it is my third but I still want a special room for baby.. How much would you say it cost you to do the entire room? And, what was the hardest thing to do on your own? I LOVE the bedding which is the reason I pinned it but now I just LOVE the whole room lol!

  • Angela

    Could you please tell me what you used for the aqua tie on the curtains? I’m thinking of doing these colors and patterns for my 2 yr olds room in our new house. Thank you.

  • Rachel

    Love this room? What is the color on the walls? I see you have two listed, but I can’t tell a difference in the pictures of two colors.

  • Rachel

    I meant.. Love this room! ;)

    Hi the Dresser/Changing table was purchased at a Thrift store then
    repainted. I do believe though it was made for that purpose just not
    sure where it originated from.

  • Lberkeley

    Hi Thanks so much for your sweet words!! I loved creating this perfect place for my perfect little man.

    I did the whole room for probably close to $850 and that included the glider ($300) and the Crib ($250). So most of everything else was either made by a family friend or purchased at Goodwill/Thrift stores or clearance finds.

    The hardest part was deciding on which fabric to go with. It is hard to tell how it will look in your room based on swatches. In the end I do love what I selected although I might have gone for a brighter blue on the Crib Skirt Pattern. But Carousel Designs are fabulous they let you create a virtual bedding collection online and you can mix and match the fabrics and choose different colors. It is fun to play with and really lets you customize your set. They will also send you swatches for just a couple of bucks. Totally worth it because then you can match everything else in the room to those swatches. I always had them in my purse just in case I came across something fabulous!

    Ok course the painting was physically the hardest part. Luckily my Mom came and did most of it as I was 8 months preggo at the time :) (Thanks Mom it looks fantastic)

    But I started off with an Inspiration board, most of which came from Pinterest. The board is still on my Pinterest page if your interested in seeing it ( ). It really helped me as I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted. It came our pretty close to what I envisioned from the beginning and I couldn’t be happier!!

    I used 1 1/2 inch Satin Ribbon from Joann’s. You buy it by the spool and I think I paid like $3 or $4.

  • Lberkeley

    Thank you Thank you!! The four main walls were painted with the Refreshing
    pool by Behr and the wall areas inside the bay window were the Glacier Bay by
    Behr. They are close but the Glacier Bay is just a shade Lighter. My mom actually painted the ceiling as well with a mixture of the Glacier bay and white so it is even lighter and it just adds a nice touch :)

  • Lberkeley

    Thanks LOL

  • orly

    Hi! This is similar to the ideas I had for the nursery to be. Do you think this would go well with a grey crib and grey and white dresser?

  • orly

    And how much was the bedding?

  • dudahustle

    Honest opinion? While the layout and color choices are beautiful, chevron is SO overdone, it looks so outdated dated already and there is way too much of it in this room.

  • Lberkeley

    The bedding was actually made by a friend of the family. I purchased the fabric from Carousel Designs and –,
    I spent probably about $65 on the fabric.

  • Lberkeley

    I think a grey crib would be very nice. I would suggest maybe adding some pops of white in the bedding or in other elements to brighten things up.

  • orly

    thanks for your suggestion. Do you think the paint color refreshing pool would work on the walls? ALso, I looked on carousel designs and found bedding we like with some white in it. Do you think that the blue nursery chair has to be the same tones as the wall and bedding?

  • pam

    What thrift store did you find the change table at if you don’t mind me asking.

  • pam

    What thrift store was it purchased at?

  • Lberkeley

    Hi Pam, I purchased the Dresser from Decorating Mart in Kennesaw, GA. It is a Home Decor/Fabric store with some consignment furniture. The dresser was a consignment dresser.

    Hi Orly, I do think Refreshing Pool woudl work on the walls as that is what I used on our walls and I LOVE it!! asa for the blue chair. I think it could be lighter or darker but should be the same tones. If might be best to go with a grey or white, or another accent color, chair if you are having a hard time finding blues that match

    What a beautiful nursery – modern yet comforting! Such a nice job.

  • Jessica

    Did you mix the two paint colors together?

  • Vanessa

    I love your crib! It matches a dresser i want to get. What is the name of it?

  • sc60159

    I love this color! Did you mix the two colors together? When I was at Home Depot, the colors didn’t look the same as in your picture. I know it is hard to tell on a computer screen. Home depot wouldn’t mix the two together so I just wanted to know how you got your color. Thanks!

  • sc60159

    I am silly…just saw these posts…I got a color swatch of both those colors and they look way more blue than the aqua that it looks like in the picture….I am nervous to get the sample and have it not be the color shown! Did you notice that when you were picking out the color?

  • Nicole Kidd

    This photo (I found on Pinterest a year ago) is what I modeled my twins’ nursery around – we did grey and white accent striped wall and chevron crib sheets with an accent color of light blue! You can see how we decorated out twins’ nursery – DIY style – on my blog:
