Lovely Little Room: Gray + Yellow

I'm very excited to launch A Lovely Lark with a project that's very near and dear to my heart - my nephew's nursery! My sister is due Monday - eek! and has just finished putting the finishing touches on the space. My brother-in-law and she live in a very modern home in Queensland, Australia, so I haven't been able to see much more than glimpses of the design via Skype. Needless to say I was thrilled to receive a pile of photos in my inbox the other day. So without further ado...

She was hoping to create a soft and soothing space but with fun pops of color. The room started out with a neutral palette of yellow and gray, but she added in a few touches of blue after she discovered that she was having a boy. She ran into a few challenges in finding the modern pieces that she loves in Oz, so they ended up having the dresser custom made (for less than the inspiration piece!) and found a company willing to ship her glider all the way from Canada. They also rolled up their sleeves for a few DIY's - they made the crib skirt and cornice themselves!


I think my little nephew is going to spend a lot of happy days in his lovely little space! Thanks sis for sharing your photos with us!
