  • JeanM1211

    beautiful! We aren’t finding out the sex of our baby either so gray was also one of our options too..i think it looks great with a bright color..Wonderful job, I LOVE IT!!!

  • Pam

    Dad, you rock! I just love when both parents are involved in the design of baby’s first room. The color combo and modern details are fabulous. Well done!

  • bluebirdkisses

    I love your nursery!!!  So beautiful and chic :) great job daddy!  I think we have the same crib for our son.

  • artsy_eyez

    I’m working on a gender neutral nursery right now!  I love grey as a neutral base!!  Where did you get that fabulous chair?? I love it!

  • nickscarpino

    Hi, Artsy_eyez. We got the chair at a Land of Nod outlet store in Naperville, IL. 

  • Recreate

    Really pretty. And the fact that it was the dad-to-be who designed the room adds extra cool points. I really love the wall decal with the integrated shelves.

  • cjfnursery

    I LOVE this room!!!!! Wonderful job!!! I wanted to know if you remembered the name of those curtains from Ikea, I really like that style and color??? Thanks!

  • nickscarpino

    I’m sorry, cjfnursery, I don’t remember the name of the Ikea panels and I don’t see them on their website now. The panels cost $20 for two panels and they are fairly heavy fabric. Sorry I can’t be of more help. When I bought them in the store, they were definitely marked down, so maybe they are no longer being sold? I’m not sure. 

  • Jen

    This is amazing. i love every last detail. Thank you for including the information on where you purchased items. I am going to attempt to replicate this.

  • Sara Tamburrino

    Thanks so much for putting a Safe Crib in the layout. Nothing in the crib except a fitted sheet. Bumper pads, pillows, toys, etc are not safe have caused suffocation in infants.

  • Mary Jo Novak

    This is a wonderful, versatile room. Brady can enjoy this decor for years to come. Nice job, Nick!

  • Annette

    This is outstanding … I love the bright accent colors, how well the room is put together and especially the tree with pictures on the free-standing shelves out of the tree. What an incredible positive atmosphere for Brady and parents! Well done!

  • Orleen Newotn

    Beautiful room design. Love the family tree on the wall, very versatile room for either a boy or girl. Sure Brady is going to love his room as he grows up. Well done!

  • MominW8ting

    Gorgeous! Simply Gorgeous! Do you remember the name of the paint used? Love the whole look. So nice!

  • becca hirst

    awesome nursery! good job!

  • Connie Turner

    Wow, am so impressed with this room, It is so serene and so NOT like your ordinary nursery,babies do not need to be surrounded in “baby” stuff and I truly believe that that babies are more comfortble in rooms that they are familiar with. I have 6 kids and not one of them had a special “baby” type Nursery…This nursery gets a “20” out of 10!!!

  • Mom

    The paint color was called Anonymous by Behr paint. How fitting for our anonymous child until birth. :-)


  • Kari

    Love the nursery, where did you find that pendant light. It is awesome!

  • Mom

    Hi Kari. The pendent light came from the Land of Nod.

  • Jess

    Fantastic room!! Where did you find the Alphabet artwork? Thanks!

  • Patchi (Trendy Peas)

    Lovely room. I love the color of the gray wall with the details in white and orange. And that pendant light is adorable.

  • Marlyn

    Beautiful room! Can you tell me the name of the shop on etsy for the family tree decal? Thanks!

  • Simple Shapes

    Beautiful room! Can you tell me the name of the shop on etsy for the family tree decal? Thanks!

    Looks like our Original Shelving Tree from Simple Shapes! The whole nursery looks so wonderful! Congrats!

  • darlene

    Love it! Gray is such a “HOT” color right now and it looks so great with orange! I immediately thought how awesome our custom gray & orange initial rug would look in that room!

  • originalblackbe

    Great article, I just given this onto a co-worker who was doing a little research on that. And he in fact purchased me lunch because I discovered it for him

  • Deblyn

    Love the room!!! Fantastic use of color. My daughter is having her first and was looking for something modern, fresh and unique. I am now the best grandma tobe since finding site.
    We are using your design as inspiration. Thanks for all the info on where to purchase and the paint
    Color. We are in Canada so no chance anyone will know that we copied you.
    Hope you are enjoying your new baby.

  • alicia funk

    Do you feel like the Nod ceiling light gives off enough light in the room or is it dim? I can’t tell if there is more than one light bulb in there from their website. Love the room – great job!

  • alicia funk
  • Kacie

    Did you choose orange accent bird decals or citrus yellow?? Thanks!!

  • Tonya

    Love this nursery and we already have a room painted gray:) My husband is deployed right now so I am trying to get everything ready for baby before her returns. I would love to know where you purchased your alphabet print? Thanks so much…..

  • Nicholas Scarpino

    It gives a great amount of light. We added a dimmer switch to the wall switch, too, to make it darker in the room at night.

  • Nicholas Scarpino

    Thank you. I’m flattered. :-)

  • Nicholas Scarpino

    That’s the one. Thanks, Simple Shapes!
