Grayson’s Nursery


I started planning the nursery before my husband and I knew the baby's gender so I wanted sophisticated pieces that worked for either a boy or girl.  My mom was a huge help and we spent countless hours on the phone discussing ideas and traded numerous emails of pictures we liked. Once we learned the baby was a BOY, I returned the pink bedding I purchased "just in case" and started looking for the perfect blue fabrics for the ottoman and bed skirt.  I am so happy with the end result.  Grayson's nursery makes me is the perfect room for our little boy!

Design Inspiration

My goal was to create a nursery that didn't look too "babyish."  Early in the process, my mom sent me a picture from an old Veranda magazine.  On the cover was a blue ottoman which we both loved.  I knew that I wanted that to be the focal point of the baby's room.

Decorating Style

Classic, traditional and timeless.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in Grayson's nursery is the custom-made ottoman from Lee Industries.  My mom found the fabric for me and I absolutely love it.  I plan to reupholster it once Grayson gets older so it can be used in another room.  It is definitely a forever piece and it makes me happy every time I walk in the nursery.


Always be on the "hunt" for a special item to make the room unique.  Try not to furnish the entire room from one store and purchase items that aren't all baby specific so they can be moved elsewhere in the home.

Lovely room. I am intrigued by that book (Mom's One Line a Day).
