Gray & White | Design Inspiration

Gray and white — a powerful color combination. It can be crisp and contemporary or soft and delicate. This stylish duo can be used in any room in your home and never goes out of style.

Make white and gray your neutral color palate or bring them in with accessories to brighten up a dark room. Rugs, storage bins, bedding and paint are just a few ways to incorporate gray and white into your nursery decor.

What do you think of the color combo? Love it or Leave it?

Teepees add a little ‘whimsy‘ to your nursery or child’s room and they’re fun for the entire family!

With the right fabric, a teepee can look great in almost any room, not just the nursery.

Vintage, White, and Bright {Real Nursery Spotlight}

It was love at first sight for me when I saw Holly’s renovation of her daughter Wren’s nursery. I especially love the elegant contrast between dark wood floors and the white walls and furniture.

Detailing like the pom poms and chandelier give this muted room a pop, but my favorite item in the room? The armoire! Don’t you just love it?

Check out more of Holly’s renovations on her blog, Life in the Fun Lane.

And in case you want to make your own pom poms, here are some tutorials.
