Tully’s Teal, Green & Gray Nursery


Tully's nursery is a subtle mix of stripes, plaid, dots, gingham, and paisley prints with celery green, aqua, slate blue, black, cream, and pewter.

Design Inspiration

The heirloom-quality crib is the focus and inspiration for the room: solid and classic.  I knew I wanted this piece whether I had a boy or girl.  Gender neutral colors of black and cream were also part of my vision, which would allow the room to "grow" with my baby or be used for a future child.  When I found out I was having a boy, I added celery green, aqua, and slate blue, along with some personalized finishing touches.

Decorating Style

Traditional, classic, mix and match

Don't be afraid of making a boy nursery look too girly!  Although I'm sure most boys don't have chandeliers hanging from their ceilings or in their armoires, I think it's OK.  I figured by the time he has an opinion, we'll be moving on to a big boy bed and redecorating anyway, and I'm the one who has to look at it every day until then.

If you see something you like in the store, even if you don't think it matches, buy it.  You can paint or re-purpose it so it will fit with the other items in the room.

If painting the gutter bookshelves, sand first and use primer, otherwise the paint comes off too easily!

HI! I love the entire room! It's adorable bedding. I am interested in the fabric you used for the piping in the bumpers. Do you know the name of the fabric? Thanks

Lacie, call Peek A Boo Baby Boutique at 918-298-0070. I had the bedding custom done there. It's a narrow black and cream stripe.

The side table was a one-of-a-kind piece I purchased at a local store,The Market at Walnut Creek, so I don't know the paint color. I saw it randomly, brought in my bedding to make sure it coordinated, and bought it!
