Reagan’s Yellow and Gray Nursery


My clients decided early on they were not going to find out if they were having a boy or girl, so we knew right away we needed to make the nursery gender neutral and add a few accents when the baby was born.

Design Inspiration

Pinterest was a huge help in understanding what the clients wanted from this nursery. They knew they wanted the stripes on the walls, and a more casual feel.

Decorating Style

The style of this nursery is casual, soft, and comfortable. They wanted to have a space where their baby could grow and have room to play, with durable furniture that would last.

Project Details

Favorite Items

We found the chair right away and it kind of guided the path for the rest of the room. It's comfortable for mom and dad, and adds a cute fun pattern in the room.


I always tell my clients to look for inspiration photos, and then try to find the common factor/s of all the pictures. It could be a paint color, a pattern of fabric... but it's always easiest to have one thing you start with that you love and build from there.

I really love this! The softness is so lovely :) Were the butterflies added after Reagan was born? Curious what you would have used for a boy as that what we're having in a few short weeks. I'm inspired by your DIY mobile, it's something we have yet to solidify in our nursery. Congratulations on your new addition and her beautiful room!

We were going to do elephants if it was a boy :) I will be posting the DIY on my blog soon for the mobile. It was actually very easy, just a little time consuming which was a good nesting project for the mommy to be :)
