Bright and Fresh Neutral Nursery

Design Inspiration

We were inspired by the color palette of gray, white and yellow to create a modern and traditional nursery for our first child.  Since we didn't find out the sex of our baby, we wanted to create a nursery that would welcome a little boy or girl.  At the same time, we also wanted a nursery that wouldn't be too childish and would outgrow the baby.

Decorating Style

We enjoy traditional and modern elements in our design.

Project Details

One of our design goals was to repurpose as many elements in the nursery to keep our budget low.  When we couldn't find something that we liked, such as bedding, we figured out how to make our own.  As a result, we created a unique and personalized nursery for our baby.

Favorite Items

I love the white tree decal against the gray accent wall.


I recommend that the PN readers think both short-term and long-term as they design and decorate their baby's nursery, so that they create a space that the baby can grow up in as he/she gets older.

    Love, Love, Love this room. it goes along the lines of what I’m planning (in my head) to do to our nursery. did you use two different colors of grey in the room. I would be interested in knowing which paint/color(s) you used. Great work!

    Looks like the sidetable and shelves are from IKEA. They are called Noresund (table) and Lack (shelves)

    Otherwise, love the room.
