Ahaan’s Mint Green, Gray and White Neutral Nursery


I had created this nursery for Ahaan sometime around his first birthday and I am finally getting around to posting these pics! Phew, life does get hectic after babies!

We needed to move Ahaan from his original nursery because he was quickly outgrowing the room (so much so that with all the furnitures, my husband and I could barely fit in there at the same time). Also because his previous nursery was the hottest room in the house, it was flaring up his eczema making him stuffy at night. I also wasn't very proud of the old nursery so moving the nursery gave me an excuse to re-create that perfect room for him. In this nursery, I was able to put a lot of thought and inspiration to use. Now, I love hanging out in his new nursery :)

Design Inspiration

Project Nursery, Pinterest and Google.

Decorating Style

I decorated with mostly neutral stuff because I didn't want the nursery to scream "a boy's room". I went with mint green walls along with the white/mint green striped accent wall (my husband tried VERY hard to talk me out of the stripes but I put my foot down!). Then, I threw in gray and yellow chevron accents.

Favorite Items

The reading nook (we use it every night!), pouf pillows and his first shoes in shadow box.


Don't be afraid to recreate a perfect room for your little one if you are not satisfied with the first. And, it is perfectly OKAY to prepare a nursery after the baby is born. I think there is a lot of unnecessary pressure on having a nursery ready before the birth. Actually, I believe you will have a lot more clarity on what you want without the raging pregnancy hormones AND you are not working against a tight deadline of 9 months :)
