Baby Room Ideas:  A Simple yet Classic Nursery

baby room ideas and inspiration

A soft color palette and elegant nursery furniture creates a warm and sophisticated baby's room for newborn Tripp Pecaitis!   

When designing the nursery, Tripp's mom, Emily, wanted the look to be consistent with the rest of their home. Her vision was a combination of traditional pieces, a timeless feel, and a tranquil color palette. 

She achieved this with a mixture of gray tones and blue accents. The wall paint color is Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.  Emily chose New Arrivals' custom bedding for this sweet nursery.  The crib bedding inspiration came from our Sea Salt Crib Collection, which is made of washed, relaxed gray linen fabric.  

Emily made a few changes to the collection and monogrammed the crib rail cover for personalization.  All of our crib collections can be tweaked to get a unique, personal look.

The tailored look of linen crib bedding gives the nursery a classic, timeless appeal.  This gender neutral baby bedding includes a tailored, pleated linen crib skirt, cotton muslin crib sheet and gray linen crib rail cover.  Many of our products are easily monogrammed for a personal touch.  The classic dark iron crib from Wayfair makes the soft gray baby bedding pop.

The custom painting above the crib was painted by an artist from Emily's home town in Mississippi—Catherine Ann Davis from “Hi Y’all! Made In The South”.  Emily says "It was so fitting because we prayed for this gift from God for many years." 



There is nothing sweeter than a soundly sleeping baby!

The crib rail cover adds style to the bedding, but will also protect your crib and your baby's teeth!  Check out all of our monogram options which include a variety of fonts and thread colors to choose from.

antique nursery furniture

An ornate antique dresser adds a vintage touch to the nursery, and was a gift from a friend.

nursery wall decor

Sweet framed baby animal prints over the changing station add a playful feel to the space.  We love the sweetness of the water color prints, which are by the artist Susan Windsor (Etsy). Baby animals are almost as irresistible as a newborn baby!  Simple gold frames add a touch of glamour! 

nursery rocker

The adorable rocking horse was a gift from a friend.  

The patterned gray and blue area rug from Wayfair brings together the room and is the perfect mix of pattern and color.  A serene color palette puts a sophisticated spin on the nursery.  The long, dramatic flowing curtains are from Ikea and super affordable. 


Emily knew they would have lots of family visiting baby Tripp. Since they were limited on guest space, it was necessary to put a twin bed in the nursery for frequent visitors. They selected white Pottery Barn bedding with gray trim, which goes great with the New Arrivals bedding. The long, dramatic flowing curtains are from Ikea and are super affordable.

"The nursery is so peaceful and cozy. We spent many hours sitting, rocking, and anticipating Tripp’s arrival. We wouldn’t have changed a thing!" - Emily.

Thank you Emily for sharing this stunning nursery with us!
