Soft and Elegant Gray and Pink Nursery


A feminine, romantic nursery in shades of soft pink, gray, and white with crystal accents, and vintage inspired accessories.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a nursery that was feminine and classic and that wasn't too babyish so Adalyn could grow into it.  At first all I really knew is that I definitely wanted to use gray.  I really found my inspiration when I came across the chandelier and a swatch of the gray and white damask fabric that is used in the bedding.

Decorating Style

My style is a mix of classic and romantic.  I have to have a touch of crystal in pretty much every room. :)

Project Details

Bow holder frame:  That was a pinterest project.  I bought a frame from Hobby Lobby, painted it white and stapled and hot glued the ribbon onto it.  Super easy!

Gray Paint: Sherwin Williams "Knitting Needles"


Pink Paint: Glidden Pofessional custom mix.  Color came from an ICI paint deck, as Glidden Professional used to be ICI.  The color is a mix between "Almost Pink" and "Cradle Pink."


Favorite Items

My favorite items in the room are the gallery wall above the crib, the chandelier, and the fabrics.


Come up with a plan before before you start purchasing items.  It's important to find furniture and accessories that will work in your space.  As far as style, find what inspires you and build off of that.

    Hi my name is monica,

    I am not having much luck with pink samples and we are spending too much on that and can’t get the perfect paint. You said the paint is a mix between almost pink and cradle pink. I don’t see that cradle pink anymore! Is there something something similar to it. Would you please email me at

  37. avatar Christine says:

    Hello! I absolutely love your daughter’s nursery. I am hoping to create a similar gallery wall above my daughter’s dresser. I have found a similar mirror, and the frames without photos but I am having trouble finding nice frames with mats to use. Do you suggest picking frames and matting yourself or did you buy those as is?

  38. avatar JBrennen says:

    The print is 8×10. The frame is 11×14.

  39. avatar JBrennen says:

    Yes, Valerie, just the wall behind the crib is pink.

  40. avatar alexis says:

    Is the “love” frame an 8X10?

  41. avatar valerie says:

  55. avatar Lindsay says:

    I have been looking all over for bedding and can’t find anything I like more than yours!! It is beautiful. Can you please email me how to order? Thanks so much in advance.

  56. avatar JBrennen says:

    Thank you, Steph! The carpet does show spots because it is so light, but they clean up very easily, many times with just hot water. I also have it cleaned twice a year which really helps keep it looking nice.

  57. avatar Steph says:

    Thank you so much! You don’t find it gets stained, even though it is so light? You did a great job!!

  58. avatar JBrennen says:

    Thank you, Steph! The carpet is Mohaw SmartStrand. The style is 1I50 Intelligent Style and the color is 501 Paper Moon. I really love the carpet! It is SO soft and it cleans up easily. We added an upgraded waterproof pad, which also makes it extra soft.

  59. avatar JBrennen says:

    Thank you! As far as the crib bumpers, my daughter slept in my room in a Pack N Play until she was four months old. For this reason I didn’t have to worry about them when she was really little. By the time we moved her up to her crib she was rolling over very well on her own, so I felt comfortable leaving them there. She has also always been a baby who sleeps smack dab in the middle of the mattress, so she never even gets her face close to the bumpers. She is 17 months old now and they are still in her crib. I will probably leave them there unless she starts using them to climb. I would definitely buy the crib bumpers again!

  60. avatar JBrennen says:

    Lindsey, what is your email address?

  61. avatar JBrennen says:

    Sarah, I will email you. I hope I’m not too late!

  62. avatar JBrennen says:

    Rachel, the butterflies came from Hobby Lobby.

  63. avatar JBrennen says:

    Hi Trini, I apologize; I’m just now seeing this. I will email you the bedding info. Sorry if it’s too late!

  64. avatar Steph says:

    I absolutely adore this room. I’ve been showing it to everyone as my inspiration for our baby nursery. I was just wondering if you knew what color/brand the carpet is?? We are having trouble finding something that matches nicely and it seems that in all the pictures I look at, they show wood floors.

  65. avatar 2CuteYellowLabs says:

    What a beautiful nursery. When you commented that “My style is a mix of classic and romantic. I have to have a touch of crystal in pretty much every room” you described my decorating style perfectly. I’m putting in a nursery for my first grandchild and you’ve given me some great ideas. Since there is some controversy over crib bumpers I’m wondering how long you used your crib bumpers and if you would have bought them again?

  66. avatar Lindsey says:

    Love everything about this! I went to get the mixture of the pink paint and they have discontinued the colors. Do you have any suggestions on a soft pink like the one you used because I am not having much luck picking out pretty samples! Also, could you send me your bedding info on exactly what you ordered?? Thanks so much!

  67. avatar Trini says:

    Please send to too.
    Love, love, love!

  68. avatar Sarah C says:

    I am in love with this nursery… and just like everyone else, I would love to have the ordering details on this bedding. If you don’t care could you please send me info at ? Thanks soo much!

  69. avatar Rachel says:

    So beautiful! Do you happen to remember where you bought the butterflies by the mirror?

  70. avatar Renchell Rhodes says:

    Can you send it to me as well please? I love it! :)

  71. avatar JBrennen says:

    I will email you…

  72. avatar JBrennen says:

    Sure, Jennifer! I just need your email address.

  73. avatar JBrennen says:

    I will email you…

  74. This nursery is absolutely beautiful! I was hoping you could email me the exact order you placed for the bedding along with a general idea on cost? Thanks so so much!!

  75. avatar Gina Marie says:

    Hi Sweetie. I am in loveeeee with this room. How did you do the custom bedding? I am on the Polka ToT designs site and looking now. Did you take the fabric to a seamstress? my email is If you dont mind just making the subject BEDDING so i know it is not spam. THANKS SO MUCHHHHH!!!

    Bed Bath & Beyond

  77. avatar Guest says:

    This one is from Bed Bath & Beyond and is similar

  78. avatar Guest says:

    I bought a similar mirror from Bed Bath and Beyond.

  79. avatar Allison says:

    I love this look, I’m thinking of doing something similar for my bedroom since I don’t have any more babies and won’t be having any more within the next year or so. :) Thanks for sharing your resources and advice!

  80. avatar Ashley Beth says:

    Love this bedding, want it for my little girl, do u mind sending me info on how to order and cost possibly, I’d really appreciate it! Thanks!

  81. avatar JBrennen says:

    I will email you…

  82. avatar JBrennen says:

    I purchased the canisters from Michael’s. They were in the seasonal section last spring.

  83. avatar JBrennen says:

    I ordered the crib and dresser, as well as the chair and ottoman, through a store in the Houston area called Baby & Kids’ 1st Furniture.

  84. avatar Guest says:

    I ordered the crib through a store in The Woodlands, TX called Baby & Kids’ 1st Furniture.

  85. avatar JBrennen says:

    I purchased the mirror from Target last spring, so I don’t know if they would still have it. It’d be worth a look though.

  86. avatar chanelle says:

    Where did you get the little mirror above the crib at? I love it!

  87. avatar Lhickox says:

    Where did u order your crib and dresser from?

    Where did u order your crib from?

  89. avatar Shelby says:

    Where did you get the love canisters?

  90. avatar Emily says:

    I am in love with this room, by far my favorite. By chance can you give me the exact name for the bedding you picked. I tried looking on Polka tots but can’t seem to find it. I’m expecting in September. Look forward to hearing from you. Or you can e-mail me. (thanks again)

  91. avatar JBrennen says:

    It actually came from Hobby Lobby. It’s metal, not mirrored. I added the pink ribbon so it could be hung.

  92. avatar Tina says:

    Gorgeous! Where did you find the Love wall hanging and is it mirrored? Thank you.

  93. avatar JBrennen says:

    Marissa, if it’s not exactly a 50/50 mix, it is very close to that.

  94. avatar JBrennen says:

    Gina, I am very pleased with the bedding and am happy with the quality. The pink fabric on the bumper is perhaps a little stiffer than I would like but I’m fine with it. I actually think it works well for a bumper, but I definitely wouldn’t have used it for something like a crib sheet. The fabic I chose for the crib sheet and blanket is very soft. You can order fabric samples from Polka Tots and I would recommend doing that before you spend the money to order your set. The fabrics I used are Large Damask Silver, Baby Pink, and Minky Dot Pale Pink.

  95. avatar JBrennen says:

    Denise, the love print came from the CreativeWildChild store on Etsy.

  96. avatar JBrennen says:

    Dawn, the love print came from the CreativeWildChild shop on Etsy.

  97. avatar Marissa says:

    I love your pink paint color. Is it a 50/50 mix of those two colors?

  98. avatar Gina says:

    Are you happy with your bedding? Do you like the quality and fabric? Is it soft? I just designed something and noticed that its not cheap so I wanted to make sure that it was worth the money.

  99. avatar Denise says:

    I absolutely love this room. Just wondering where you found the love print?

  100. avatar Dawn says:

    Hi love your nursery. i was wondering where you got the love print in the frame.

  101. avatar JBrennen says:

    Hi Ashley, I tried to respond to your question a while ago but I’m not sure it went through, so I thought I’d try again. I actually custom designed the bedding using Polka Tots’ fabrics, so it isn’t one of their named sets. I can probably get you the order details if you don’t mind sending me an email at Thanks!

  102. avatar Ashley says:

    The bedding that you got, by any chance do you remember which name it was? I love the settle pink in this room and exactly what we are looking for our little girl?

  103. avatar Frauline says:

    So soft, sweet and feminine! My fave is the changing table/dresser and the decorative accessories you placed on the shelves (especially those 3 can canisters with the white ceramic bird).
