A Project For

Baby A

Age

Not born yet. =)

Location

Seattle, WA

Description

Gender neutral nursery with gray walls, white birch trees, white and espresso accents and splashes of red.

Design Inspiration

This season, I'm really in love with gray and wanted a gender neutral nursery for our baby boy.  I got the idea of adding the birch trees mural after feeling soothed by watching trees through a window at my prenatal yoga class and also at my husband's office.

Decorating Style

Modern, contemporary, transitional, eclectic? Actually, I enjoy looking at anything that is beautiful.

Project Details

Birch trees with red birds: wall decal from Etsy.com

Paint: Benjamin Moore Affinity paint in Storm

Rug: West Elm

Dresser:  Bello Gloss from Overstock.com

Crib:  Baby's Dream Infinity in Espresso

Rocker/Recliner: Monaco in Summit Dove (which actually turned out more beige than I anticipated) by Little Castle

Baskets & lamp from Fred Meyer

Book shelf & side table are garage sale finds that I painted in white.

DIY: origami mobile and a no-sew crib skirt that I made from old Ikea curtains

Favorite Items

The birch trees with the birds add a lot of drama to the room.  Plus, my cats love the birds and are always trying to hunt them (when I let them in the room that is).

Advice

Deciding to go with white accents really saved me a lot of money since these items are easy to find and match.

    Love all the colors!!! I love how its not screaming “BABY BOY” something a little manly is way cuter to me! You did a great job! I did gray as well for our boy room. my theme was ” Just like daddy” and took all my husbands hobbies and incorporated them into the room.

    Super job done here.  I have always stayed away from grey thinking that it is boring and too serious for kids… but you showed me that with a little touch of creativity and some decors, you could actually have a zen room with grey colors!  Thanks!
