Grayson’s Modern Grey, Navy and White Nursery


When we found out we were pregnant I already knew regardless of having a boy or girl we would have a modern and neutral nursery filled mostly with greys and white with elephants. If it was a girl, we would have added coral for a pop of color, but when we found out we were having a boy, it was all about adding navy.  I loved every minute of planning the nursery for my sweet boy and it ended up being perfect!

Design Inspiration

Keeping the nursery clean and modern was my main focus. I knew I had to add the elephants when I saw the elephant nightlight from Land of Nod. Then the elephant obsession followed directly after!

Decorating Style

Neutral, modern and clean lines.

Favorite Items

The heartbeat canvas is by far my favorite part of the nursery. It is such a sweet, personal and meaningful piece.


Don't pressure yourself. Take your time and be sure that its something that you will like for at least two years. I also focused on décor that he could grow into, so there isn't too much of a theme, but the elephants can easily be changed out for something else later.

Sooo beautiful! What brand is the rug from HomeGoods? I can’t find the size that I need at my local HomeGoods. I was wondering if I could find it online.
