A soothing nursery in yellow and grays fit for playtime and naptime.

Design Inspiration

The yellow walls. They were painted yellow before we began and the goal was to make the space as calm as possible! So we brought in a beautiful mix of grays and whites in different patterns.

Decorating Style

The space was meant to be calm and happy -- and a place for maximum play time. So the white shag rug was key as he was beginning to walk and play with toys. The style was contemporary clean.

Favorite Items

The giant giraffe! He is so fun and such a whimsical surprise in the space. David's older sister is definitely jealous!


Focus on your one bright color (in this case, yellow) and then have fun with different patterns in grays. Just make sure you look at the undertones of your grays to make sure there isn't too much green or purple underneath that might not work with other grays in the space.

    Stunning nursery! We haven’t seen golden yellow walls like these in awhile and it really is beautiful. Love those affordable finds too like the window panels and lamp!

    So glad to see that you painted the walls yellow and not gray! Yellow is such a cheery color and looks great with gray.
