Drew’s Nursery


A fairly simple nursery using some of my favorite colors.

Design Inspiration

I love looking at decorating blogs, magazines, and watching decorating shows. So, when we found out we were expecting, I slowly began to add nursery decorating blogs to my list. I fell in love with a nursery I found on this website as well as several others found on websites such as,,, and a few others. 

Decorating Style

I like traditional with a slight modern flair and fun pops of color.

Favorite Items

I love the picture collage and the "d" pillow!


Look at a lot of different things, make note of why you like them, and then just start working on the project you have in your head. It will all come together with your own style and personality.

Sorry mwatters, I don't have the number for the paint color. It's at Lowes if there is one near you...and it's called Going Gray. I hope you can find it. Next time I will definitely hold on to the number, that would be much more helpful.

love the room!  the color is perfect, however, I can't seem to find that paint color on valspar's website.  Do you have the number for that paint color?

As they say, you don't have to inject bright colors and glittery or attention-grabbing items to make a room look lovely and interesting. You certainly proved that very true.

This room's very easy on the eyes. It's not cluttered and it looks really nice and neat. Your white frames are very pretty, too.
