Transitional Lavender Grey Nursery


I wanted the nursery to be as adult friendly as possible, yet have the potential to easily transition into a child-friendly nursery with a few simple adjustments. Everything in the nursery is budget friendly and DYI. The nursery can be cleaned very easily - all of the furniture can be wiped down, the linens/curtains washed, and the rug taken outside and beaten. Since this is a girl's room, I included lavender for a feminine touch, but avoided the fou fou of a girly princess room. The grey and the yellow, neutralizes the purple creating a balance making the room calm and relaxing.

Design Inspiration

I had many different ideas for my nursery and finally came to my pallet when I found the base material for this room. From there, the fabric company suggested other patterns that went along with the main material. Once I had my colour pallet, I began searching pictures of elements in nurseries on the net. When I discovered Project Nursery, I felt like I hit the jackpot. There were so many different colours and styles, not to mention the videos, it helped me narrow down what I wanted to include.

Decorating Style

A mix of modern and contemporary with transitional. I love the clean lines from modern design and the grey mixed with pops of colour for the contemporary influence.

Favorite Items

The valence is my favourite item in the room because it brings everything together yet it's not overpowering in stating that it is the anchoring item.


Choose furniture that can adapt and does not necessarily have to stay in the nursery in the future. Almost all my furniture (except for the crib) can transition into another room. Babies grow quickly and changing the room can be done by changing the accessories.

So neat and crisp. Love the clean, neutral colors with touches of sunny yellow.

Beautiful fabric choices! So lovely and sweet. I feel like the name gets a little swallowed by the big wall behind the crib, have you thought about maybe adding an open frame or something around it to make it more of a focal point?
