Description

I have to say, coming up with a plan for a boys nursery was a challenge for me. I am very girly and for a while everything i came across while searching for inspiration was geared towards girls. One thing that helped me was the fact that my choice of color schemes for just about everything tends to be very neutral, black, grays, nudes, olive green, white, and the occasional blush tend to me my go-to's. It actually drove my boyfriend Petey, crazy because when he thinks of a boys room he wants loud colors, super heroes and all of that fun stuff. Which i am totally okay with! Well.. maybe not the loud colors part lol but super heroes yes! once he is a little older. For now we had to think baby, i knew i wanted to choose colors and patterns to really get his eyes trained and for the first three months or so i knew that they can only see black white and grey. This was my starting point.

Petey and i ended up battling between shades of grey or shades of olive green/nudes. Grey turned out to be the winner and once i found the crib and furniture i loved from Babyletto it was game on! With the paint and furniture picked out we could finally get started... the design on the wall came inspired by a Pinterest photo of course, i knew i wanted some type of geometric decal on the walls and thats where the dots came in.

For about a month all we had was a painted room with furniture because holy crap did finding decor give me anxiety. I had trouble committing to ordering so many things because they needed to flow together and it was an expensive commitment. I searched high and low finding inspiration through Instagram & Pinterest which lead me to SO many beautiful decor shops, and a camera roll full of screenshots..which quickly lead to a decrease in my bank account.. but who cares right?! this is my first baby so I was on a mission to have fun with this. I was beyond happy with the outcome of Dominic's nursery, i enjoyed every minute of creating it with Petey (probably more than him) haha.

My favorite parts of the room have got to be the accent wall for sure, Petey worked so hard on it and it was quite the challenge because our walls are not smooth so he drove himself crazy trying to make straight lines. My favorite part decor wise is the crib & the play-gym.. these play-gyms by Little Pine and Co are absolutely beautiful. They are handmade so nicely, and make the perfect little sensory toy. I will say I still have a few things that I feel need to be added to make it complete but with baby here I've been a little distracted. My best piece of advice i can give when designing a nursery is take. your. time... you've got 10 months !! Also for the sake of not being turned down by every idea... instead of talking about it to your significant other, SHOW him, trust me it makes things a whole lot easier! Start planning as soon as you find out the big news and add a little here and there on the way so that you get EXACTLY what you'd envisioned :) xo

    Do you have the names of the grey paint colors you used? The ones on the accent wall and the color of the other walls (which I kind of assume is the same as the medium grey on accent wall)

    This is beautiful! Would you mind sharing the colors your used in the room? We are look to do this so it would be a lot easier to use your colors. You did this SO well!

    Hey what are the colors of grey you used ?? Finding greys that don’t look blue is really hard!!!

    Obviously she doesn’t want to share the paint colors. SW has a couple great true grays…Portsmouth Landing and Cobblestone Arch.

    Hello all, I no longer have the paint cans which contain the name of the paint colors.

    Any products you see should be tagged at the bottom or the right of this post with the links to that store/product

    Desiree, I believe I have the 6 FT rug :)

    If anyone has any other questions.. send me a DM via Instagram @betweenthebabes that is a better way to contact me

    💕
