Soft, Gray Nursery with a Mix of Old and New

Levi is the first child of photographer Britney Smith, who designed a gorgeous soft white and gray nursery just for him. As a childhood photographer, Britney has seen quite a few nurseries over the years, so she knew exactly what she wanted to do to make Levi’s room particularly special. By using a blend of antique finds, family heirlooms, and a few new pieces, she created the perfect, unique space for their little one. We are smitten with the airy palette and warm sophistication of this beautiful nursery, plus the addition of a few thoughtful DIY pieces, like the yarn letters and lovely crane mobile. To see all of the beautiful photos of this darling nursery, stop by the full gallery.
