Ava’s Sweet Gray and Pink Nursery


Soft, sweet, feminine baby girl's nursery

Design Inspiration

We started with a very basic builder-beige guest bedroom. We decided to add board and batten and crown molding to add some interest to the space. Once I settled on a gray, pink and white color scheme, things started to fall into place from there.

Decorating Style

My overall decorating style is contemporary, traditional, with some coastal/nautical touches.

Favorite Items

My favorite items are the bedding and curtains. It was really important to me to get just the right shades of pink, so I splurged a bit on these items and they're absolutely perfect.


My advice is to take your time when looking for just the right pieces. If you rush to get everything done by the second trimester, you'll probably end up settling for some things you're not totally in love with. Take your time and the pieces will fall into place. This also applies to getting the best prices - if you're patient you can catch the rare sale from places like Serena & Lily and RH Baby & Child.

    This room is so adorable. I have a little girl on the way, due in August and using this pic for inspiration as I decorate! I am having the white wainscoting/trim/paneling whatever you’d like to call it, done this week. My only challenge is that I’d love also to get white furniture but I’m wondering if the white on white is going to look ok. Our trim color isn’t a true white. The white furniture is typically pretty white though. Did you run into this or did you match the white on the wall with the furniture? Would love your feedback on how this looks in person if the shade of white doesn’t match exactly of if you can even tell. Thanks!

    How is the Kristaller chandelier as far as lighting goes? Does it brighten the room up enough? I am thinking about purchasing it from Ikea but am not sure because our nursery is small with only one window, so there isn’t a lot of natural light coming in.

  24. avatar LynN says:

    Love this room! I have been eyeing the Serena and Lily bedding for a while! Quick question: where did you get your changing pad cover?

  25. avatar Beth says:

    The colors of the dresser and the crib look great together in the photos, but how close are they in reality? We have the Kendall simply white crib and are still trying to pick a dresser. Thanks!

    Love! I love how clean and fresh your nursery is. The grey walls work perfectly :)

  29. avatar Gracie says:

    Beautiful! So soft, feminine and clean looking. I have to admit…I don’t like gray walls for a baby’s room unless it is light…but this looks beautiful and bright with the white batten board on the bottom. Love the crib bedding also. Very sweet and simple!

    Awww, nothing more delicate and sweet and feminine like a combination of baby pink, soft grey and white. It looks so clean and pristine and so elegant. My faves are the prints and monogram.
