Description

Modern, Funky, Sassy, Fun, Pink and Gray

Design Inspiration

I started with the flower print fabric I found at hobby lobby.  My neighbor and I sewed all of the bedding and made the window treatments.  

I know owls are very popular and I just had to incorporate them into the design when I saw some of the decals on ETSY.  So cute! 

Decorating Style

Funky, modern, bright, alive, ectectic

Project Details

Gray is a tricky color.  My husband and I had to paint the room twice.  The first time it turned out almost periwinkle...which was NOT what I wanted.  

I found all of my wall decals on Etsy as well as the changing table cover and owl alphabet picture above Grace's dresser.  The lamps and picture frames are from Hobby Lobby , the Crib and pink shag rug are from Walmart,  and all of the fabric used to make bedding, quilt, pillows, and window treatments are from Hobby Lobby.  The pink owl night light was an amazing find at Tuesday Morning.  

I found this site helpful too.  I got a lot of ideas about what I liked and what I did not like  just looking at photos.  

Favorite Items

My husband refinished the dresser for the nursery.  It was originally a piece of his grandparents first bedroom set.  Pretty cool!  

He also refinished the rocker we found on Craigslist and white side table.  

Another favorite item is the beaded lamp.  I know I'll have to move it when Gracie becomes mobile.  It just adds a lot of charm to the room and it's perfect for bedtime stories.  

Advice

I started on her nursery early and it has taken me right up untill the end to finish it.  It was nice to work slow.  The room was sort of able to create itself.  I would sit in the rocker at night and look around thinking, "I want a picture here" or "We really need a lamp in that corner".  For the most part, you can find ANYTHING you want online.  

I spent a lot of time on this project.  This was my first attempt at designing a room and I wanted to get it right.  I wanted something very special for miss Grace.  My husband and I are both so proud and happy with the room.  That's really the only thing that matters.  Now we just need our little lady to get here.

    It is so fun! I love it:) I am expecting a baby girl and I am thinking about yellow-gray design. As soon as  I saw your photos, I deciced to add a little pink! Where did you get the changing pad? Can you ask your neighbour if she wants to design my crib set too? I can supply all the materials and she can charge for her time and labor…

    Amy, Grace’s room is absolutely beautiful!! Looks like such a fun and happy room to be in :)

    Can I ask you what is the paint colour you used? I am thinking of BM’s Anchor Gray, but am scared ( thinking it may be too dark?) also I am still undecided on my crib color, but strongly leaning towards Espresso.

    Hi there!  We used Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal  for the walls.  It is really dark- but a gorgeous color and provides nice contrast with the white furniture.  

    Good luck and congrats on your little one:)!

    My neighbor’s website for the crib bedding is -www.distinctivedesignsjustforyou.com.  She really does amazing work.  I found the changing pad cover on ebay.  For some reason I’m not able to find the exact store.  I’ll keep looking. Thanks!

    Hi Amy:  I love that shelf.  I’ve been looking for something like that.  Did you guys make it yourselves?

    We got the cube shelves with pink drawers at Target.  I think Ikea has something similar.  The shelf above the dresser is a hand-me-down from my niece’s nursery.

    I love this room! I find out in 2 weeks what I am having and if it is girl, this room is my inspiration. Where did you get the owl pillow?

    I would have to commend you for being very brave with this room.  I would have never thought of having a dark wall color like what you’ve used here for a nursery!  Still it is a very lovely room.  Nice touch on the pink and all the accents!

    Amy:  Thanks for the reply.  I think I have to be on the lookout for the fabulous finds at Target!  My eyes are not as sharp as they used to be :)

    This is perhaps the best owl room I’ve seen for a long time.  And the colors here are great.  I love the drab/dark gray and all the splashes of playful color you have here!

    Love this room!  Can you tell me where you found the pink and green flowers that are hanging on the wall?  Thanks!

    LOVING the gray!!!  Very inspiring.  I think any little girl would enjoy this room.  Grace will love it!

    Thank you all!  I found the metal flowers hanging on the wall at Hobby Lobby.  The white side table is from Target.  It was originally light purple and my husband painted it white.

    Where did you find the little pink owl lamp with the holes in it for the light to shine through?   I am currently working on a owl nursery for our little girl due in May and I LOVE what you did!

    • Clarise Marzipan from Braemore Fabric

    The fabric Amy used is this (just found it): http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/apt-cosmo-meadow-floral-fabric/?F_All=Y It’s still available online!

    The Clarise Marzipan fabric is close and equally beautiful…I actually think it’ll work better for what I’m doing.

    Fantastic room, Amy!

    Thank you and again adorable!!!

    This room is amazing! Never would have thought of dark wall color for nursery but all the bright colors go great with it! My daughter is 2 1/2 and looking for inspiration for her new room. Well, I found it!!!
