Graham's Nursery Reveal


*Bumpers are in place for pictures, as baby boy does not yet sleep in it. However, we will not be using them once he does transition to nursery and will put them back on when he is older.

I have only talked about this day for 6+ months. Yes? Yes. Actually, it's been finished for about that long except for the fact that we were waiting for his canvases {which he obviously had to be born to put up} and also his wall-art {which came from overseas and the UPS actually shipped the product back to the seller, so the lady had to resend them to me... two+ months of waiting, and a lot of phone calls later}. But alas, all is here, hung up, and pictures have been taken.

Our theme? Initially we didn't have one. But then somehow stuffed animals began appearing in his room, and the next thing I knew, I was purchasing wall art that consisted of monkeys, elephants, giraffes, and lions. And so the animal theme sort of took over. However, I didn't want it to be too "baby" like so we stuck with a lot of neutral grays for the majority of the area and threw in the pops of green to bring some color into the room.

Why the canvases? Well, if you remember Elliana's big girl room reveal, we had decided to put canvases above her bed, so we really wanted to stick with the same concept with G's room. Mainly? Because I always want to see my babies as babies every time I walk into their room.

There are still some tiny little touches that are missing. We've talked about putting crown molding in the room. As we have with every other room. But that just hasn't happened yet. I also want to hang something in the top right hand corner that has a pop of green in it. Not sure what? Hanging monkeys, gorillas from the ceiling? Ha. Anyone want to point me to a creative direction, that would be appreciated.

Overall, I am madly in love with how it turned out, and always feel at peace and cozy when I walk into his room. Which is exactly what I was looking for as my inspiration when I began the planning.

Peace and quiet.

  6. I love the colors! We looked at Glider and ended up getting a recliner - best decision ever! We have both slept with Mason in the recliner a few times in the last 7 months.
    I love the canvases. I really want to try one of those in our house, maybe Mason's room is a good place to start.

  20. SOOOOO CUTE! I love how it could be 'gender neutral', because you have those few other splashes of color. I also LOVE that it isn't too "baby". I did that for my son's nursery (mostly because we didn't know the gender!). Great job!

    Check-out Landon's nursery!

  26. I LOVE this! I wanted to go with grey and bright green for the Bambinos' room but everyone kept trying to talk me out of it and I couldn't find the right bedding. Finally I gave in to everyone else and I don't love their room. I love this one though, you did great.

  27. I love the gray and green together. Very nice!!

  28. Wow! That room is beautiful! Definitely not too baby-ish but still uber cute and boy-ish :)

    Here's one suggestion: you could use the embroidery hoop(s) and hang up some green solid/patterned prints. Cheap and totally customizable.

  29. So beautiful! I love it and is a great balance between baby and masculine!

  30. what if you did like a tree decal in the corner? that stretched to the ceiling? that would be cute; as if it isn't cute already

  31. This is a perfect nursery! I dislike when rooms are too babified, this is just perfect. Love!

  32. It looks lovely! It's modern and stylish, yet sweet and cozy for your new baby :)

  33. I love looking at nurseries. :) It may have taken you six months to post, but mine has taken me over six months to finish! I'm still working on the nursery for my 4.5 month old. I just couldnt' decide exactly what I wanted. I'm having fun taking my time though. I've been looking for a big G for my little Gray. I'll have to check Hobby Lobby. If you want to add a pop of green to that corner, what about painting the G?

  34. Beautiful. The pops of green are the perfect touch.
