Turquoise and Grey Modern Nursery


Love this? Share it!

When it comes to decorating a nursery the design options are truly endless! If you’re looking for a sweet modern nursery in gender neutral colors, we’ve got one to share! 

When I found out I was pregnant, the nesting phase started early. As someone who has barely decorated the home I’ve lived in for 7+ years, I was consumed with creating a gorgeous bedroom for my soon-to-be baby.

Since my husband and I opted out of discovering the sex of the baby, I wanted to plan for something that would work as a base design for a boy or girl. One I could easily change up or add to if/when I felt like it!

Once my son was born (it was a boy!), I added an initial sign and a blue dinosaur to the design, but that’s about it! Check out the full nursery design below.

The paint colors we used were Valspar Mermaid’s Song for the large turquoise triangle, Valspar Sea Lily for the smaller turquoise triangle, and Valspar Polar Star for the grey. And that gold line? Washi tape! You can also see how we got those perfectly straight lines here. (It’s super easy!!)

Considering I already had the rug, curtains and dresser/changing table, the entire room setup was pretty cheap! (Even those curtain ties are just pieces of cut ribbon!)

I absolutely love this modern nursery in gender neutral colors, and it will work with any design or accent colors you’d like to use!
