Gray It Is

We've decided on gray walls for the nursery.  After going through so many samples of blues and grays, it was hard for me to find the perfect blue gray that I wanted.  I saw several examples of colors I liked but once I saw them in person, they weren't quite right.  They were either too blue,  too purple, or too green.  So I went with my second choice of gray.  I chose to go with Silver Sateen from Behr.  It's a light gray that will be the perfect backdrop for the bright colors I want to use in the room.

With that said, here's how the plan has changed from previous versions.  I was able to find an orange chevron rug from Urban Outfitters that I love.  Since it was on sale, I decided to grab a few more colors just to have a few options to play around with.  Sometimes I can't resist a sale.  If they don't work for the nursery, they may end up somewhere else in the house.  After making a list of all the things I want in the room, the large Hemnes dresser is no longer an option.  It was just more money than I was willing to pay.  I have now decided on the smaller, three drawer option.

Paint - Behr Silver Sateen
Rug - Urban Outfitters
Chair - Ikea
Pouf - Target
Bedding - Target
Crib - Target
Dresser - Ikea
Shelf - Ikea
Art - will be DIY
Chandelier - will be DIY
Here is the same setup but with a gray rug and orange pouf.  I like the rug, but it may be too much gray and fall flat into the floor.

Now that I have a plan, let's get to work.
