Gray & Yellow Elephant Nursery

With our second child on the way, I needed to create room that I felt wasn't too commercial and slightly creative. I also wanted a room that I could add my own twist to as I know with two boys it will be nothing but cars, trains, and sports gear just a few years from now.  A nuetral pallette with a punch of color was exactly what I was looking for. After searching for a few ideas, yellow, gray and elephants was the way to go.

  1. Hey, this is Vicki Gross from Pine Designs. I love the Nursery and the Scrabble Letters look great. I just posted your blog on my facebook page. Thanks for including us in your blog.

  2. Love what you have done!

  3. Love this nursery! What paint colors did you use for the walls and for the dresser? Thanks :)

  4. Did you add the closet doors? I really like the way they open. Great room:)

  5. Looks great! Where did you find the old crib spring above the changing table?

  6. I was wondering the same where the wall hanging above the crib is from! I love the idea!

  7. Is the rh wire shelf tippy on carpet?

    Thanks! Love the nursery so much! Very inspiring!

  8. Love this room! I was also wondering what colors you used for the walls and dresser? Thanks!

  9. May I inquire about the wall paint color? I am on the hunt for the perfect gray.

  10. Me too! I would love it if you could list what color it was - we are struggling to find something that doesn't look purple in our nursery. (Your picture of the dresser/chair/collage has been our inspiration :)

  11. Can you please share the dimensions of the "You are my sunshine" art work? Thanks!

  12. I would also love to know the paint color. Beautiful room!

    1. I know this exactly same color as Georgica mist of Martha Stewart

  13. Would love to know the wall color :]
