Simple Chic Secret Passage


We had so much fun designing a simple, modern, gender neutral nursery. With a gray foundation to work  from, we knew it would look great with any blue or pink accents that might come our way after baby was born.  Today, we have a beautiful two-month old girl who loves the bright and cheerful room whether she is getting her diaper changed or sitting in the rocking chair listening to her favorite stories.

Design Inspiration

Our inspiration was chevron patterns and giraffes.

Decorating Style

Contemporary, neutral

Favorite Items

I love the DIY items and the tree wall decal.


We used a bulletin board and pinned our favorite items to it as we came across them (from patterns to paint colors to furniture to inspirational sayings, frames, stuffed animals, etc.).  When we felt we had enough we went though and selected the main inspiration and all the items that would accent and incorporate the main inspiration (in our case the chevron bedding and giraffes).  I think this is a great way to bring your dream nursery to life.

I loooove these closet dividers and am trying to make some myself, but am having a hard time finding the animals for them. Where did you get yours from? The website listed doesn't have the animals on them.
