Pyper’s Pretty Little Pink and Gray Nursery


A small and happy pink and gray nursery for my first child.

Design Inspiration

I browsed Project Nursery for months while I was pregnant. Once we found out we were having a girl, I knew I wanted the nursery to be pink and feminine (with some modern elements that my husband would approve of as well). Instead of a particular theme, I chose a classic color scheme I knew I would enjoy over time, and found lots of cute animal-inspired accessories and wall-art to add   fun and whimsy to her room.

Decorating Style

Eclectic. I like a mix of modern, shabby-chic, and traditional.

Favorite Items

I have many favorites, but I especially love the comfortable gray rocking chair (it reclines too, which my husband likes), the ruffle curtains, and the princess chandelier. I am also particularly fond of the two black-and-white newborn photos hanging above her changer table.


Make the nursery a place you want to spend time in! Choose a comfy chair to nurse, rock, and read to your little one, and make sure the nursery makes you happy. Choose items and arrange furniture so it will be functional. My daughter's room is really small (10X10 feet), so we needed to be strategic about the size and placement of furniture. Use the walls to your advantage and hang a variety of wall-storage items to free up ground space.

Those baby animal photographs are just cute and they really make one smile.
