Gray may not be the first color one thinks of for a nursery, but more and more parents are choosing it for their little ones. Gray's versatility allows for serious creativity in furniture and decor choices - it coordinates with virtually ever other color. Not to mention that its soothing nature is perfect for a sleeping space. But it can be tricky when it comes time to choose the perfect shade. Too light and the space will look washed out; choose the wrong undertone and it can quickly clash with your decor. To help with this difficult decision, I've chosen some spaces and swatches that get it just right. Rooms:
  • Gus's Modern Nursery on a Budget
  • Henry & Adela's Playful but Peaceful Shared Room
  • Osianna's Modern Baby Nursery
  • Aiden's 'Modern Preppy' Nursery
  • Luna's Nursery via The New Domestic
