What colors do you think of when we say ‘Girl Nursery’? We bet you thought of pinks and grays (the most popular color palette for girl nurseries right now!), purples and delicate creams and off whites. Now, take a look at mom Audrick Drummond’s vision for her baby girl Aubrey. Done up in a blue, peach and gray color palette, this nursery is anything but conventional. Bold and beautiful, this color scheme makes a statement while still infusing an aura of femininity to the room.
The first thing you notice is the striking blue wall with the name mural in a charming peach-pink shade. Mom Audrick picked the Aurora 5-in-1 Convertible Crib in Ivory Lace as the finish can be paired with a variety of color schemes as little Aubrey grows up and develops her own style. A cozy and comfortable gray colored rocker/glider sits rights next to the Aurora, ready for cozy snuggles and bedtime stories. Next to that is an open shelf with cube organizers in colors that match the color palette of the room. On the opposite end, the Aurora Double Dresser sits inside the closet alcove with baby Aubrey’s clothes neatly arranged in hangers. By painting the closet wall in the same peach/pink shade, Audrick makes a functional storage space into an attractive design element that adds value to the entire nursery. A pink carpet laid out in front of the Aurora crib adds the perfect finishing touch and ties the whole room together.
With its not-so-common choice of colors, baby Aubrey’s nursery is the perfect inspiration for those looking to decorate a baby girl nursery that is anything but ordinary. Read on to find out more on how mom Audrick went about creating this attractive space –
What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
I saw the Aurora crib and knew I had to have it be the focal point of the nursery. I then found the art work at a craft store and that inspired the color theme.
What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
First the look of the crib then when I researched further I noticed the sturdy construction (solid wood vs. particle board, dove tailed joints etc…) and the price point was reasonable.
What does this color scheme mean to you?
It represents a modern girl. It’s a color scheme that she won’t immediately outgrow.
What accessories did you choose and why?
I was very basic with the accessories department. Just a couple of sets of cube organizers. I didn’t want to take attention away from the Name mural.
What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
The name wall. It came out better than I expected and the dark blue accent wall was not a fan favorite at first.
Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
I hope to use the crib and dresser well through her toddler years (I’ve already purchased the conversion set). The neutral color I picked lends itself well to a lot of different color schemes.
What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Pretty and peaceful.
