Neutral Grey Nursery waiting for the arrival of a baby. Once we know the gender a name will be added to the wall above the crib and pink or blue accents will be added.
The inspiration for this room came partially from not knowing the gender of our baby and being in love with grey this year.
Paint Colour is part of the Benjamin Moore Affinity collection called Storm . Our glider was ordered through a baby boutique but is made by a Canadian company called Monte. We ordered the Luca in charcoal with white piping, this was one of our splurges in the room. I love the look of lower modern cribs and since I am short as well I felt this would be a great design to get baby in and out really easily so we selected the Elements crib by AP Industries. This was not my most favourite crib however it best matched what I was looking for within our budget. We painted a tree on the wall to give dimention and a photo gallery that will be filled with images of the baby once it arrives to give a personal touch. We used an old dresser that we had painted it and changed the fixtures to make it more modern looking and hung simple white drapes with seems down them from Ikea to again give texture to the room. Once Elle was born we took a trip to Pottery Barn Kids to add pink accents. We purchased a fitted crib sheet, change table cover, a toy bin, a laundry bin, and a large throw pillow. We also added her name over the crib to give a personal touch.
My favourite item is the tree we painted on the wall and the Monte glider. Worth every penny!!!
Don't be scared of grey. It took us forever to select the proper shade and it still looked really blue after the first coat. The second coat and white trim really helped take the blueness out of it. Also try to think about how you can use peices you already have to help shape the room. I like the eclectic look so even through our dresser was really old the painting and hardware changed the look completely and gave it a little more modern feel. Finally if you are thinking or painting your own mural chalk is amazing. You can sketch it on and simply wash it off if you don't like it.
