We have a three bedroom house and two kids, so we needed a multi-functional room. The room has to function as a space for my growing toddler, but it is also used as a guest room when friends and family come visit. The challenge was squeezing a queen size bed and a crib in a relatively small bedroom.
Gray and yellow is super trendy right now but I've always loved the combination. This room does not get as much light as the other rooms in the home, so the yellow really brightens things up.

I love the built-in bookshelves in the space. And the yellow just makes me feel happy when I walk into the space.
This room has evolved over the last 2 years. As a newborn, V's nursery was turquoise and lime green, which I didn't like because it made the room feel so dark, and the bold colors were just too much for me. I repainted the room a softer gray, installed beadboard and changed out all of the bedding, then decided to bring in a lighter color (yellow) to brighten up the space.

I like your use of grey and pale yellow. This shade of yellow is bright enough but not too stimulating, so you can relax your mind and just unwind in here.
