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.
