Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Townsend and His Gray and Turquoise Nursery

Gracie Blue Photography captured newborn Townsend in this sweet session, along with his playful gray and turquoise nursery. Townsend is the first child of parents Kendyl and Brendan, other than their dog Beamer. That cute furry guy actually helped calm Townsend by giving him kisses on his little toes. How adorable is that? Townsend's nursery is calming in a soft gray with white accents, while the turquoise brings in a little fun. The bicycle accents found throughout also increase the whimsy. Photographer Grace Dinwiddie was inspired by his room design and actually found a tiny bicycle for the photos to coordinate. Such a great idea! See more of this lovely family and great room in the full gallery.
