Grey and yellow nursery, cozy and inviting. Elephants started to become a little bit of a theme after I found grey and yellow elephant artwork.
I wanted this space to be cozy, clean and well organized. I like soft, plush things and wanted that for my baby. I started the nursery knowing I wanted to do grey and yellow for the colors since it was gender neutral and didn't know what we were having.
Pottery Barn-ish, Crate and Barrel, modern - comfortable, clean, not too cluttered. I wouldn't say I am very creative, but I will see something in a magazine, website or Pinterest and try to create something similar. Oh yeah, I love Etsy as you will see it is where I found many unique things!

Elephant Hamper, it fits so perfectly in the room and adds a little bit of whimsy. I also love how all of the art turned out, it was all inexpensive but with frames and matting it looks great. The rug also adds a bit of "fun" to the room.
Start working on your nursery EARLY! I do believe you have to invest in certain things to come out with a "high-end" look, for me that was the furniture. The accessories were where I saved.. I would shop at Marshalls, and Target frequently just to see what they had, and as you can see I came away with some pretty good finds. I purchased things when I found them over a span of months rather than buying everything at one time. Go with your "gut" it will often be right and look great when it all comes together.
