When Stephanie Avey set out to design the nursery, she didn't have much of a plan, but she knew that she wanted white furniture to go with her gray nursery. She added yellow and teal to the color palette and came up with this eclectic room for her baby son.

Friendly Flyers

The owl wall decals were a gift from baby Alexis's great-aunt and work well with the yellow clock. The bee costume on the door goes with the sunny outdoor theme.

Nursing Nook

The light gray tree and yellow birds on the wall have a perfect home in this nursery. Flowers Rader was a little hesitant to get the recliner in the beginning, but now she loves how it looks and feels.
