It's been a long time since my boys were babies... and this is the first time I've been asked to do a babies nursery.  What fun!

Originally the request was for gray and yellow. The twins are a boy and a girl - so it makes the room unisex.  However, I see it as a 'sweet' room for them both. 

You can shop some items on line.

GRAY AND YELLOW Color Pallette

 The dining room rug came into the room which helped ground the color palette.

I found these posters on Esty 
Make a glossy photo and frame it. 


Curtains should be window sill length with this arrangement so items can be placed under the window. 


GRAYSON BEDDING on Baby Super Mall . com

Gray and yellow was very difficult to find - in the right tone and the right design - and in enough fabric available for the pair of crib sets. I searched  Wan Chai - Shenzhen - Ap Lei Chau and the USA. I gave up and went on line and found this. 

Blanket, bumper, skirt and 1 sheet - $307.69 each set/ $2418 hk
plus 20 % my commission. 
change pad cover:  $38.46

The customers crib sets are in a light camel wood color. So pairing it with a crib set with camel and gray made sense.  Everything is working together with the additional color. 

Sticking on the Curtain Valance and same gray stripe ticking on the pillows with yellow buttons. 

Remember your walls are white - not gray like the photo.  I think the dresser gray is too much in the room - It needs a pop - and repeat the carpet.

Add a antique dresser - to bring in the yellow.  Add glass knobs for some bling. 


The valance is in the same camel color and accented with a yellow ribbon to match the rug and the dresser. 
The gray linen curtains are lined and gathered 2.5 times to give them volume.  They would stop at the bottom of the window so you can house something underneath it like the bookcase.  


From Layla Grace I got the inspiration for the bedding.  The client likes contemporary - but has many items that are already Country French. 
I like the white mattress cover - easy to clean and bleach. 

I have the source for the white embroidered accent  (similar) - and then just an inexpensive cotton gray linen on the bottom.  What I have to know - is there enough room below the current bed designs to actually achieve this?

 The original thought of the 2 seater sofa will not fit. It's 55" wide. 

42" wide x 20" deep x 36 - 40" high.  
The changing table is removable so it can be used as a dresser later on. 

I'm getting 2 quotes - to make out of plywood and veneer (it will probably be white) - and to make it out of solid wood for long term use - and paint it yellow with white Chinese artwork. 

This dresser sells for $3600 USA!  I think I can beat that.... omg. 

Whatever fabric we can find with the yellow and gray - repeat it on the bumper pillows, accent pillow and lamp shade.  This is on the gray cabinet between the beds. 

Do the curtains to the floor in a ribbed satin material. There is a very light shine.  Since all the other fabric is matte - this will bring whimsy, sophistication and interest.  To hide the hardware - we place a simple valance on top in a gray and white stripe piped in yellow.
