UPDATED Yellow and Neutral Boy Nursery – classic modern


We wanted a nursery that could work for either gender in case our next child is a girl. My favorite color is yellow, so we painted unique stripes around the room. The inspiration for the stripes is an actual paint chip. We chose a gradient from dark on the bottom to light near the ceiling with small white stripes between. I think it makes the room feel larger and taller.

Since the the walls are so bright and modern, we wanted the rest of the room to feel classic and traditional in contrast. Most of pur accents are whites and neutrals to balance the bright walls.

Design Inspiration

We were inspired by a combination of modern and classic design.

Decorating Style

I love both modern design and classic style, so our whole house follows this influence. I love antiques and clean lines. I only decorate with my own photography or projects I've created specifically for the room. The arrows over the crib are a project that one of my friends created just for the space.

Project Details

The quilt and arrows are made by family and friends. The frames with beach photos came from Michaels. I wanted a grey-brown wood stain and Michaels had a good selection of these. The changing table is one I found several years ago at an antique store, but I did replace the handles and my dad worked on the drawers to make them open more smoothly.

The crib is from Target.
