Nolan’s Grey, White and Navy Baby Boy Nursery


Having 2 girls already...I was very excited to make a baby boy nursery.  I started sewing after my second daughter was born, so this was my first pregnancy with the knowledge of sewing.  I knew from the beginning I wanted to attempt to sew and create most of the decor myself.  You can see all the details on my blog here.

Design Inspiration

I knew very early on that I wanted to have 3 grey walls, and an accent grey and white striped wall.  I also knew I wanted to use navy blue with a(n) accent color.  I finally came across Riley Blake's chevron fabric in BOY and ran with that.  Navy, grey, orange, and red.

Decorating Style

Clean, bright, & functional.
