This blue and gray nursery is for my firstborn, Zavian, who is due this Spring.
I wanted a contemporary nursery that was soothing and not overly babyish. I knew I wanted to incorporate a focal wall and started designing around the tree decals. I wanted to use a variety of cool blue shades mixed with grays and browns. I started accumulating accessories that I loved... nature inspired pieces paired with graphic geometric pieces. I am so happy with the way it turned out!
My decorating style is contemporary with an eclectic twist.

My favorite item is the tree decal wall. It really sets a tranquil mood and was my inspiration for the entire nursery. I also love the rug!
I did a ton of pinning and browsing through nurseries on projectnursery to gather ideas before planning my nursery. I would start with one or two pieces that you absolutely love (bedding, decals, rug) and design the rest of the nursery around them. The process feels less overwhelming that way. Color palette is important so think about what kind of mood you would like the nursery to have...soothing, bright, fun, modern, traditional, classic, eclectic... and make sure your colors reflect that. I think that artwork is the key to making a nursery really special, so don't be afraid to have fun in that area.
