This past week I've been helping my friend, Lynn, design a calm, gray and white nursery for her baby boy. Living in New York City and converting an office/guest room into a nursery is always a challenge, but I think we were able to come up with some really great ideas using pieces of furniture she already owns and a few accents to round out the space. Her only requests were that we:
- Stick with a gray and white color scheme
- Incorporate an elephant motif throughout the room
- Use the following pieces of furniture already owned: Pottery Barn Blythe crib, Ikea Hemnes dresser, and a Monte Luca glider.
See below for two designs I put together, along with a source list for each. Which is your favorite?!
