Grey and yellow is definitely the new classic nursery palette, and Elizabeth put it to work in the most adorable way for her new baby boy's room. The walls are the perfect shade of pale grey to act as a backdrop to the sweet pieces she selected for the space. We love that the dresser was something she already owned that she painted sunshine yellow, and the small side table was an old piece she found in her grandfather's basement that she spruced up with some green and white paint. She even brought in the glider that her husband was rocked in as a baby and had it reupholstered in a lovely, deeper shade of grey. And the elephants? They subtly pop up here and there without being too "themey", and the whirlwind of graphic elephant cutouts in the mobile create a gorgeous focal point for sweet, 3-week-old baby Sam to gaze at during diaper changes.
