My Daughter’s Nursery is 50 Shades of Gray, But I Love It

After posting previous pictures of my daughter and I in her nursery I received a few comments and messages about the shades of gray and for a deeper look into her nursery.

I was joking with a friend that her nursery was “50 shades of gray” because of all the gray we had in one picture. Although her walls are gray along with a few other items in the room, we also added a clean white look as well. Here is a better look into her bright nursery, and links to some of the products we’ve purchased for it.

I love my daughter’s room. It is probably my favorite room in the house. It is freshly painted, and super bright. We love spending time in there playing and reading. I’m so happy with all of the products that we’ve chosen to create this perfect little space for her.

Walls: Sherwin Williams– Colonial Revival Gray. The paint came out lighter than I expected, which actually made me like it even more than I originally did.

Crib: Target– I love my daughters crib. It’s bright, pretty and perfect for her room. We knew with gray walls we wanted white furniture to brighten it up, and it did just that. This particular crib that we purchased is a four in one convertible crib that we will transition her with as she gets older.

Crib Sheet: Walmart– this is just one of the few crib sheets we have for her. I also love the look of this pink crib sheet with the gray and white walls and trim. It brings a fun pop of pink color to the room.

Rug: IKEA

Sweater: ROMWE

Leggings: ModCloth

Rocker: Ikea– This rocker has been the perfect little rocker for late nights or before nap feedings. It’s comfortable and it’s easy to set a bottle down on the arm without having to set it on the ground.

Baby Rocker: Homegoods– she loves this thing, and it’s adorable!


Butterfly Art: Pottery Barn Kids

Before having Margot I was told it’s easier to use a changing pad on top of the dresser instead of getting an entire changing table for the nursery. This was some of the best advice we received because I have no idea where on earth we would have put the changing table.

When I change my daughter I set her right on top of her changing pad on this dresser. The dresser is at the perfect height to change her so I don’t have to worry about reaching up too high or bending down and hurting my back. The top left drawer is completely filled with diapers and wipes since she doesn’t have enough clothes to fill all the drawers anyway. The diaper changing process has been so easy for us because of this set up.

Dresser: Walmart

Changing Pad: Target

Changing Pad Cover: Target– this is not the exact one I have, but it’s very close and I love the plush feeling.

Sound Machine: Target

Lamp: Walmart

Frame: Homegoods– someone gave this to us as a gift, and they did say they got the frame from Homegoods. I find myself always looking at this because I just think it is so adorable!


This mini shelf from Homegoods has been so helpful. We sometimes keep the baby monitor on this shelf and point it at the crib, which is convenient. Most days I hang her outfit for the following day on a little hook, and it’s a great place to store different headbands as well.

We were originally going to get a bookshelf that could store some bins in it, but never ended up actually buying it. Although we still plan to purchase it in the future I’m glad we didn’t jump the gun and get one right away. Having these storage bins full of toys on the ground has been an easy access for her to grab a toy and play. She’s got stuffed animals, books and other toys such as blocks and toy balls that we keep in these bins. When we play in her nursery she digs out all sorts of stuff, and when we’re finished it’s a quick and easy cleanup.

Mermaid: Target

Bins: Babies R’ Us- Bin 1, Bin 2 (I can no longer find links for Bin’s 3 and 4, but we also have Bin 5 in her closet)

Elephant: TJMaxx

Toys: I’ve linked some of Margot’s favorite toys that are shoved inside of those bins

My favorite thing about her nursery is that everything has a purpose. I’m glad we kept it simple, even if it is 50 shades of gray.
