Nursery design trend

No matter the shade, gray is a hot color in nursery design right now. These nurseries incorporate the color palette in unique and stunning ways.

Preparing for a baby is a lot of work, and designing the nursery is a key task. These gray nurseries use a simple and neutral base color to provide beautiful environments for a new bundle of joy. Gray is easily matched with a variety of color palettes and creates the perfect backdrop for your design vision to become a reality. These nurseries get it right and provide inspiration for the next mom-to-be.

Gray and teal boy nursery

Nursery design trend

I love how Mandy at House of Rose incorporated gray and white stripes as the wall color. While the base is very soft and neutral, the pops of teal add some fun to this animal-themed nursery. I absolutely love the damask glider, too. Any little boy would be happy to call this room home!

Modern girl's gray nursery

Nursery design trend

Marianne from Haven and Home seamlessly used modern elements in her little girl's room. With different gray patterns, this nursery provides a lot of visual texture. I particularly love the unique light fixture and alphabet wall.

Orange and blue nursery

Nursery design trend

Here are more gray stripes, these from Lindsay of Anyon Interior Designs. The woven rug adds a different feel to the room and the pops of orange and blue make it a lot of fun! I also love the gray ottoman matched with the white glider. The layout of the room provides for great functionality in a smaller space.

Pink and gray nursery

Nursery design trend

How amazing is the gray and pink nursery from Megan of Wades of 108? I love the crisp white monogram on the gray. This room is soft and welcoming. Plus, what little girl wouldn't love her own crystal chandelier?

Gray and coral nursery

Nursery design trend

I love this gray and coral nursery featured on Jennifer's blog, Tater Tots and Jello. The nursery was actually designed by her sister Ashley, and it's stunning. The zinc letter on the wall adds a fun texture. The birdcage decals and pom-poms make it even more fun.

Whimsical gray nursery

Nursery design trend

Apparently I am loving gray stripes for nursery design, because here they are again with Kelle from Habitat and Beyond Kids. I think the bird mobile and the birds on the wall bring the whimsy to this beautiful gender-neutral nursery. Kelle's attention to detail is apparent with all the fun elements.

Designing your baby's nursery is one of the most fun but also difficult aspects for preparing to bring them home. These nurseries make it look easy, and all use trendy gray as their base. Now go get decorating!
