Modern Navy and Grey Rustic Nursery


This modern and rustic nursery was a total DIY with touches and accents from bargain stores - done completely on a budget!

Design Inspiration

We are obsessed with the color grey and when we found out we were having a boy, we gravitated to navy as a great pairing color.  We also found inspiration through a nursery seen on  Once a part of a nursery was completed, the drive to gather things to complement the nursery grew more and more and it simply came together seamlessly.

Decorating Style

For the nursery, we wanted clean, straight lines, simple and practical.  We also wanted to design something that he could grow into as a toddler and a teenager.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in his room is his name and the lettering.  Love the simple and chic look.


The outcome of our nursery was due to my extremely handy and talented husband since a lot of it was DIY.  But what makes the room are the small details and we were able to get them at discount stores.  So be patient and willing to go to several stores to look for the items that will make your room unique and special.  It was a lot of fun gathering all the items for his nursery and now we can't wait for him to arrive so he can enjoy it!

My dad this wall for my son's nursery and we used shiplap and stained it with different shades of blue and grey. He mixed the navy and darker grey with white stains to get different colors. Everyone loves this accent wall when they see it. He also made the shelves and curtain rod with galvanized pipes and 2x4s. You can email me for pictures.
