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.

Project Details

Frame: DIY inspired by HGTV Magazine

Ribbon Banner: DIY from Baby Shower


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.
