Caleb's Grey, Green & Yellow Nursery

My Room

Name: Caleb
Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada

Caleb was a delivery-day surprise, so we started with a gender-neutral paint colour in the nursery -- a soft but modern grey. We already had the furniture from our older son, and we waited until Caleb was born to add the decor and finishing touches.

I picked out a green striped fabric for the curtains and built from there, adding a mirror, framed artwork, green floating shelves, bunting, paper lanterns, and a paint chip mobile, all in shades of yellow and green. Nearly all of the decorative elements were made by me, including the mobile, bunting, and artwork -- we were on a tight budget and I'm very proud with how beautiful everything came out considering how little money we spent!

I wanted something that was clean and modern, and not overly baby-ish -- something that was fun and bright, but that could grow with him into childhood.

Mission accomplished - thanks Laura! Readers, visit Laura on her blog, How Sweet It Is.
