I’ve realized over the past month that I am obsessed with grey right now. Grey everything! In looking for paint colors for the new house, what do I pick? Grey. Looking at nursery inspiration? I pin grey. What is it about this color that is so alluring?

It’s become obvious that our new house will be peppered in shades of grey (no pun intended), including the babies‘ room. Now that we have a house (well almost), I can really start planning the nursery!

The good news is Pinterest exists. I can think of no better way to gain inspiration. From pinning and browsing on Houzz, Project Nursery, Babble and countless other blogs, I think I’ve finally got a solid idea of the design direction I want to go with the nursery.

A quick sidebar: A big factor for some is the sex of the baby. For me, this wasn’t a huge influence for some reason. I’ve never been one to dream of a pink or a blue nursery. The fact that we’re having twins makes it a little more complicated. What if we have a boy AND a girl? We’ll find out soon (stay tuned in the next few weeks!) and maybe that will alter my thinking, but for now, my mind is set.

Here’s a taste of what’s in my head:

A backdrop of grey neutrals, mostly modern mixed with a little rustic, a bold birch tree statement wall, with pops of color and pattern through bedding, curtains and forest/woodland accessories.

Oh and did I mention this needs to fit within a tight, twin-friendly budget featuring two cribs? I’m up for the challenge!
