Ellery’s Nursery


A nursery for our little girl Ellery.  A room that I wanted to be fun, modern and a room that could grow with her.

Design Inspiration

I saw another nursery design that used the grey stripes. We went with a bold darker grey paint for the stripes and pinks that popped. We started by doing the stipes before we knew the gender of our baby because we knew it was a great modern look that you could add colors for a boy or girl and still have a fantastic looking nursery.

Decorating Style

I would describe our style as modern comfort. We like a modern look but it is also important to us that the space still feels comfortable and relaxing.

Project Details

 The floors are from menards. The crib is the Graco Lauren. Curtains are from Bed Bath and Beyond. The couch lays flat to become a full size bed and also props up on one end to become a chaise. It was from The rug is from Ikea (only 20 dollars). the changing table was a craigslist buy that we re-painted. The book sling is something I made (idea from pinterest)

Favorite Items

The couch is one of our favorite items because we can all sit together and have family time in her room. (it can also double as a guest bed). I also love the pictures we had blown up from her newborn shoot.


The stripes were the hardest part of our nursery project. I highly recommend a laser light level when doing any wall stripes. The stipes alone took about 6-7 hours to tape down ( and only about 1 hour to paint).

I love your nursery, it is beautiful. We are expecting our first grandbaby and are not sure of the sex but I think we will paint the walls like you did very creative.
