Neutral Grey and Yellow Nursery


Grey and yellow nursery, cozy and inviting.  Elephants started to become a little bit of a theme after I found grey and yellow elephant artwork.

Design Inspiration

I wanted this space to be cozy, clean and well organized.  I like soft, plush things and wanted that for my baby. I started the nursery knowing I wanted to do grey and yellow for the colors since it was gender neutral and didn't know what we were having.

Decorating Style

Pottery Barn-ish, Crate and Barrel, modern - comfortable, clean, not too cluttered.  I wouldn't say I am very creative, but I will see something in a magazine, website or Pinterest and try to create something similar. Oh yeah, I love Etsy as you will see it is where I found many unique things!

Favorite Items

Elephant Hamper, it fits so perfectly in the room and adds a little bit of whimsy.  I also love how all of the art turned out, it was all inexpensive but with frames and matting it looks great.  The rug also adds a bit of "fun" to the room.


Start working on your nursery EARLY! I do believe you have to invest in certain things to come out with a "high-end" look, for me that was the furniture.  The accessories were where I saved.. I would shop at Marshalls, and Target frequently just to see what they had, and as you can see I came away with some pretty good finds.  I purchased things when I found them over a span of months rather than buying everything at one time.  Go with your "gut" it will often be right and look great when it all comes together.

    Very simple, clean, crisp, and elegant room. I think pompoms are overused decorative items, but your pompom mobile is really cute.
