Description

I wanted a timeless, gender-neutral nursery that can easily transition to a toddler room and beyond.

Design Inspiration

I love the color gray and decided to make it the focus of the room, but I didn't want it to be depressing so I brightened it up with punches of bold colors and bright white.

Decorating Style

Transitional and Eclectic

Project Details

The crib, dresser, and nightstand are from the Baby’s Dream Everything Nice Collection.

My mother made the fitted sheet from a full size sheet I got at Target.

I made the crib skirt from an Orla Kiely fabric.

I built the bird sculpture using Spool Sewing's pattern.

The fabric pinwheels are made from the same fabric that was used to sew the birds. They are attached to a Kikkerland Photo Mobile that is suspended from the ceiling on monofilament wire.

I created both pieces of artwork that are above the crib; the one on the left was made in Adobe Illustrator and the one on the right is an acrylic-painted canvas with vinyl letters/crown.

My dad helped me transform the birdhouse from West Elm into a nightlight.

The duck was a gift from a friend.

The owl is from West Elm.

The shell sphere is also from West Elm.

The vase is from World Market.

The star is from Target.

The chess pieces are from Hobby Lobby.

The mirror is an old garage sale find I had laying around.

The bowl for pacifiers and teethers is a vintage Pyrex yellow "New Dot" mixing bowl.

The table lamp is from Z Gallerie.

The glider and ottoman are the Vola model from Monte Design.

The curtains are from JCPenney.The catis from Super Sock Monkeys' shop on Etsy.The wool rugis made by Alliyah Rugs.I created the growth chart in Adobe Illustrator; the design is based upon the Orla Kiely fabric that is used for the crib skirt. I had it printed on vinyl and I hung it from a metal rod that is cradled by two metal-looking adhesive hooks.

Favorite Items

I love everything, but perhaps the rug is my favorite; it was the first item I bought specifically for the nursery.

    The walls, the furniture, the bedding and the curtains are very simple and very basic. They actually set a nice backdrop for the interesting and eclectic details, like the pinwheel mobile and the bird sculpture.

    Sorry for the late response, the paint is BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Satin Enamel in Cathedral Grey (UL260-7).
