Owen’s Grey & Yellow Room


We didn't find out our baby's gender, so wanted to find a gender neutral design that we could easily add pops of color to down the road. We started with grey and white, and then added in the yellow bedding, storage baskets and art to brighten it up.

In order to get the room ready, we built a custom radiator cover to incorporate more storage and cover up the ugly radiator. We also installed new hardwood floors. The closet previously had a very narrow door, so we widened the opening and are currently using curtains as doors: helps add some color, keeps little fingers free from pinching and is much cheaper than custom doors!

Favorite Items

The radiator cover my husband built is by far my favorite. It offers great storage, helps keep my little one safe and really adds a lot of interest to the room. Plus, its another thing that shows just how much Daddy loves him.

Very clean and calming colors. You really did stick with your yellow and grey color combination.I'm not sure if I love the fact that there are no other colors present or if I hate it. But the room is simply nice.
