Seeing Gray: A Sleek and Modern Nursery for Baby Delicious


For the past two weeks, I've been in full-on nesting mode. I've been going from room to room, closet to closet, one area to the next... cleaning, organizing, throwing out unnecessary old crap stuff, and reconfiguring rooms and spaces to make room for Baby Delicious. And I'm so happy that my entire apartment is super clean and ready to go.

And... I'm so, so happy that the baby's nursery is all set up and ready to go... two weeks before my due date.

I feel like I've accomplished a huge feat, especially considering that I didn't finish setting up Aiden's nursery until I was actually in labor. Early labor with mild contractions, but labor nonetheless. As you can see, Aiden's nursery came out great, but I didn't like the feeling of rushing to get it done.

Flashback to Baby A's nursery:

Now back to Baby Delicious:

Although I really love the color of Aiden's crib and dresser set, this time around, I wanted to go with a light and airy, sleek and modern (but not too modern) look. The Zutano Tivoli 3-in-1 convertible crib and three drawer dresser in cloud and white fit my vision perfectly, and fit perfectly in the small space allotted for Baby Delicious.


I saw the set online, feel in love, and had to have it for Baby Delicious! I love that this stylish set will grow with him as the wood is super solid, sturdy, and durable. And I love, love, love that I can use pretty much any bedding set and decor to jazz up the furniture in many different ways.




Painting the walls was out of the question (because, pregnancy), but I found these classic triangle wall decals from Brit + Co that I adore. Simply peel, position, stick, and voilĂ ... the entire space is jazzed up! The bold black worked really well with the stark white and soft gray colors, adding depth and giving the space an entirely different look.





I opted to go with lighter shades of gray for the bedding set and the other decor pieces in order to make the small space feel more open and airy.

(And, yes... I stole some of the baby books and teddy bears from Aiden. No worries, though... he's totally cool with giving his little brother some of his "childhood things," as he calls it. #ThatKid #ICant)





Yes, the drawers are filled with his clothes (that have already been washed!)... and the organizer on the dresser is stocked and ready to go... as are the bins in the three-cube organizer! #TypeAMom #DontJudgeMe #OkayMaybeJudgeMe #ButJustALittleBit




Yes, that's a Columbia Lion right next to his "Oh The Places You'll Go!" poster.

this kid's gonna have some big shoes to fill.
Just Kidding. (Not really.)
I could not be more happy with the space and cannot wait until Baby Delicious makes his appearance so that he can enjoy it as much as I do!

Now excuse me while I rearrange some things in his closet, drawers, and three-cube organizer until I go into labor. (You guys... my Type-A personality can't help it! #SendHelpNow)
