We’re so happy to continue our nursery board series with Lullaby Paints this year, but we’re doing it a little differently this time! While we’re still starting with ultra-safe, eco-friendly paint from Lullaby Paints, this time we’ve been using Pinterest boards to collect sources and inspiration as we work to develop the final product below. I really hope you’ve been following along this month as this Gray, Pink & Yellow Nursery Design came together.
This month we chose a medium shade of gray called Pewter. It’s part of the color collection created exclusively for Wayfair.com. Gray is THE hottest color for modern nurseries and Pewter is dark enough to be a bold choice but light enough to not make the room look gloomy. With bright pink and yellow accents and white furnishings, this room is anything but dark.

If you’re feeling this color scheme here but don’t love all the items we’ve chosen, one of the great things about our Pinterest board is that we’ve saved all the other options we considered there for you. There are alternate furnishings, lights, hampers, rugs, toys, art etc…
Thanks as always to Lullaby Paints for sponsoring our nursery board series. Safe for baby and the environment, Lullaby Paints are the perfect choice for your modern nursery. For more nursery color inspiration, follow Lullaby Paints on Pinterest, and keep a lookout for next month’s new board!

Thanks to Little Auggie for sponsoring this nursery design and letting me play around with the Robot March bedding collection. The robots are fun to work with but I could just as easily have ignored them completely and just used the pattern to add a hint of color in a gray nursery.
So what do you think? Does it need more robots, less robots or did we get it just right?
If 2012 was the year for chevron and zig zag patterns in modern design, then in 2013 we’re moving into harlequin patterns with triangles and diamonds. I’m partial to triangles anyway, so this is a direction I can really get behind. This nursery board was inspired by the amazing Walt Disney Signature It’s A Small World rug. It’s the most expensive thing I’ve selected in a while, but you’ve gotta start with something you really love. If your inspiration is spectacular, the room can’t turn out badly.

So I said I’d redo the bright version of My Modern Nursery #56 and just do a completely neutral version and here it is. Before you complain that it’s TOO neutral, don’t forget that kids books and toys are sure to fill the space before long, so there’s nothing wrong with a simple backdrop.
For the most part, this is a is demo of how, by picking the right neutral furnishings, you can then go in any direction just by using different accessories. Reuse the furniture for multiple children and get a completely different look. If you really like changing things up, you can even decorate seasonally– pastels in spring, warm colors in the winter etc…

…Jenna Halverson, of The Suburban Urbanist, put together this inspiration board for a nursery for her dear friends.
We’ve previously shown you Jenna’s Gender Neutral Lion’s Den and I’m so happy that she was able to put her skills to good use yet again. With some input from the parents-to-be, Jenna helped put this amazing nursery together for them. Take a look at the final results….
You can see the gray and white stripes used here to great effect and a little color added with the turquoise rug, painted furnishings and accessories.
I also like the little pops of red that show up here and there.
For more information about this space and product sources, visit the nursery reveal post from Jenna Halvorson Designs. The room looks so chic and expensive, but you’ll be surprised at how reasonably they were able to achieve this look. Thanks Jenna for allowing me to share your photos and congratulations to the Whetstine’s!
(If you would like me to feature your nursery here as well, please drop a line to email@example.com)
I have to share a new arrival from New Arrivals, Inc. (heh heh) because I know that so many of you are looking for gray bedding. Add the zig zag to the mix and this is a hot item.
Zig Zag Baby Bedding is $428 for a 3 piece set. You can also purchase the items a-la-carte, so the sheet ($68) and skirt ($100) together are $168– which isn’t too bad.
update 12/16: Nursery Notations is hosting a New Arrivals Inc. giveaway this week! Win a $100 gift certificate. The winner will be chosen this Sunday so go now!
