Jackson’s Nursery


Jackson's nursery. Doubles as a guest room for out of town guests. Currently we're renting a two bedroom apartment while we shop for a house. Since we're renting, I didn't want to paint the walls just to paint it back in a year. I compensated with a few removable decals. Also,  because of the rental blinds, we were unable to add window treatments. Those two things I think would have really finished the room. But, I'm happy with it considering the limitations. 

Design Inspiration

We didn't know the sex of the baby when we began putting the nursery together (it was a surprise!), so much of everything was gender neutral. We stuck to gray (it's the new green), a tiffany blue that could go either way and black with some accents of purple. After he was born we added more boy like accessories.

Favorite Items

The Jonathan Adler elephant bank. I love it. I think it's a timeless keepsake. 


I didn't plan very well. I sort of piece mailed it together. If I had to do it over again, I'd have more of a vision.

I'm having the same issue, but I am not sure if everything would fit in the room if I keep the futon in there (from IKEA). Do you mind telling me how big was your room?, thank you.

Frauline Melfi,

I wanted a blue giant giraffe, but couldn't find one. Someone should make one :)

Cool nursery with the gray, black, white and touches of turquoise. But with this color scheme, I feel like the giraffe is out of place.
