Modern Nursery Trend Watch: Gray & Teal

Gray and teal offer a versatile basic palette suitable for boy, girl, or even gender neutral nurseries. From vintage-inspired looks to bright, bold pops of color, it’s amazing the variety of nursery looks you can get with gray and teal as your starting points.

Click through and get inspired by these boy, girl, and gender neutral nurseries using gray and teal as their base color palettes!
This “French country” themed nursery for a baby boy is just sumptuous. We especially love the soft gray and teal above and below the white chair-rail in the room: a smart way to evenly display the basis of this color palette.
The gray and white striped wall adds an airy, breezy feel to this boy’s nursery. Just a few touches of orange help contrast against the bright teal accents, like the clever globe on the dresser!
Gray and teal aren’t just for the boys: they can make a stylish, feminine palette for your baby girls’ nursery! We love the bright, feminine vintage-style dresser paired with bright accents like fuchsia, yellow and orange.
Modern Vintage: Boy
This boy’s nursery uses yellow to tie the teal and gray palette together. We love everything about this vintage-inspired nursery, especially the fabric embroidery hoop wall decorations!

Teal serves as the background for this perfectly sweet vintage girl’s nursery. Tied together with a gray dresser, this warm-toned gray plays off beautifully with the ballerina pink accents throughout the space.

Patterned Pops of Color
From the teal chevron curtains to the orange doodle rug, using patterns to bring out your pops of color against a gray background is a smart, fashionable move in this swanky baby boy’s nursery.
Subtle Touches of Teal
This gender neutral nursery is just lovely with its sweet touches of teal in the lamp base, mobile and picture frame – playing off the mama-to-be’s pretty teal dress in her maternity photo. Even baby’s Bumbo seat matches! Smart. Hip. We love it.
Coral: Gray & Teal's Best Friend
We are absolutely head over heels for this girl’s nursery. The gray and teal take a slight backseat to the gorgeous coral accents, including this lattice wall – but it just goes to show you that even when gray and teal aren’t the stars of the show, they can be stunning accents when paired smartly with complementary colors.

Warm and Cozy

This lovely girl’s nursery makes both baby and guests feel welcome in this combo nursery-guest room. A neutral wall color lets all three colors: gray, teal and pink – feature prominently without overwhelming each other.
We love this modern take on a traditional woodland-inspired gender neutral nursery idea: the bright lime green ties in with the teal and darker grey perfectly. We especially love the grid utilizing all the colors of the nursery palette.
Stormy Gray and Teal Leaves
The teal takes a backseat to the gray in this boy’s nursery. From the dark gray ottoman to the lighter gray walls and mid-tone gray curtains, the teal really stands out against the variety of gray shades here.

A Touch of Lavender
This girl’s nursery adds a color that you don’t often see with gray and teal: lavender. It’s a truly sweet palette that conveys such softness for a girl’s nursery. The misty teal walls only add to the lightness of the space.
This baby boy’s nursery takes a classic theme like elephants and turns it into something modern and trendy with clean lines in a striped accent wall behind baby’s crib. The baby initial and elephant print are the perfect finishing touch.
