This nursery was designed and decorated not knowing the gender of our baby. We used various shades of grey with splashes of bright yellow to make the room lively and inviting.
We did a lot of looking online at other nurseries. From those, we took our favorite features, meshed them together and it them our own.
I feel our decorating style can be summed up as modern, yet practical and comfortable. We wanted the room to have a clean look and feel, but still fun because after all, it is a baby's room.

I love our bedding. We didn't want to go with the traditional pastel, cutesy prints that can be found in stores. The fact that my mom put a lot of time and love into these make them extra special.

Yellow and grey is a safe and classy color combination. And that Brody train is really cute.
