Blaire’s California Modern Nursery


We didn't learn our baby girl's gender before hand so it took me a while to complete her nursery. I chose gray for the color scheme knowing we could add pops of pink or green depending on if we were blessed with a girl or a boy. Pink it is! We live in Southern California so I wanted a nursery that reflected our relaxed modern California style.

Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted gray for our nursery.  We purchased the Oeuf Sparrow crib before she was born, but it wasn't until after her birth that I really started adding to the design of the room.

Decorating Style

Modern, yet minimalist with clean lines.  I like decorating with neutrals so I can mix things up with different colors when I need a change.

Project Details

The dresser was our bargain find.  We found it at our local Goodwill store for $20 and then daddy sanded and painted it. I also had a friend make all our pillow covers.  Our window coverings are basic white roller shades that I covered with fabric.

Favorite Items

We love the day bed.  We cuddle and read books on it every night and it's great for Nanny to stay when she visits.  I also love our rocker.  It's not as bulky as some of the rockers/gliders out there and we can take it from room to room.


We invested in a few nice pieces with some bargain items mixed in.  I'm not a crafty person, so I asked for help from friends who are!

Thanks for the comments!  I was nervous to tackle the shades but it really was pretty easy.  I simply cut the fabric and glued it on with a spray adhesive from 3M (specifically for fabric and plastic).  I only glued enough fabric to cover the shade when they are down, probably about half the length of the shade.

Love the room!  If I have a daughter next her room will also be gray!  She will be in our current room which is gray right now and I thought I would just leave it since pink and yellow look good with gray.  AWESOME Idea with the roller shades!  I think I may have to do that in my sons bedroom!  What kind of adhesive did you use?!
