Avery’s Orange & Pink Nursery


We know we wanted orange and gray, but when we found out we were having a girl, we threw in some pink as well!

Design Inspiration

We saw some great ideas on!

DIY, fun and modern


Project Details

  • Crib: Graco - Charleston
  • Dresser: I can’t remember the brand, but it was a pain to put together! I think we bought it at
  • Toy storage: ClosetMaid Cubeicals from Target. We plan to use orange drawers as well, but haven't purchased them yet.
  • Glider: Babyletto Madison Swivel Glider – Slate. We bought it at (It’s very comfy!)
  • Storage Ottoman: Target 
  • Curtains: We bought fabric at Hobby Lobby and my mom made them!
  • Crib skirt: My mom also made the crib skirt!
  • Rug: Ikea
  • Mirror: Ikea
  • Orange Lamp: Ikea
  • Tree wall decal and birds & owl above mirror: (It took my mom and me three hours to put the tree up, but it was worth the time!)
  • Wall Paint: Behr Premium Paint Color: "Porpoise" It took us about two months to finally decide on a grey shade that we liked! I had five different colors of grey samples on the wall and just couldn't commit! They all looked blue or purple to me!
  • Avery’s name: Wood letters from Hobby Lobby (I painted the sides of the letters pink & orange to give a fun effect)
  • Frame around name: We purchased crown moulding from Home Depot, and we cut it in four pieces. We glued it together and nailed it to the wall (we saved about $80 doing it ourselves!) – I then painted the orange and pink stripe inside of the frame to give it a pop of color – It surprisingly took me two days to finish those two lines. Thank goodness they came out straight!

Favorite Items

Not sure I can pick just one item as my favorite, but I love the color orange! So I guess my favorite "item" is the color choice!



Be patient! If you looking for the color orange, good luck! It wasn't as easy to find orange items within my budget as I originally thought!  Most girl nursery items are pastel pink.

Is the slate babyletto chair a grayish color in person? A lot of the photos are deceiving online :) thank you in advance!

Love your nursery!!!

Yes, it is gray. I was worried about the color as well, but I am very happy with the color!!

Very pretty nursery. I like the colors and the way you put everything together. I also like the way it doesn't look over-the-top.

I love your nursery! We had to be really patient and find pieces that weren't all pastel pink for our little girl's nursery-- you really did a wonderful job! I especially love the owl and birds above the mirror! (We also used the same ikea rug!)
