Planning a Neutral Nursery

Preparing for life with a baby is one of the most special experiences of my life. While it’s tempting to become overwhelmed by the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and even social changes that accompany pregnancy and life with a baby, I am striving to be fully present during this season and enjoy every moment. Life is full of unknowns and many things we cannot control, so I’m learning greater trust and finding satisfaction in planning where I can.

I can hardly believe that October is 2 days away! With only about 12 weeks remaining before baby Sheffield makes his arrival, I am starting to feel the urgency to prepare a place for him. I want his room to be inviting and uplifting, especially during those 3 AM feedings.  One note of importance: I want to create a neutral nursery, no matter the gender. My ideal space is bright and airy with natural wood, textured rugs or wall hangings, baskets, and plants. Creating a mood board for the nursey helps me stick to my vision. Here you can see the items that are providing the inspiration for my nursery makeover.Neutral Nursery Mood Board - Discovering Grace

Can you tell I’m obsessed with all things ‘W’? Wood, woven [textures], and white! I’m so excited to start making this vision a reality. My favorite part of interior decorating is the transformation of a “blank canvas” room. Plus, I have extra motivation since this space will be where our little bundle of joy learns, plays, & grows over the years. We highly anticipate his introduction into our lives and my heart is overflowing with gratitude during this season of preparation.



  1. Hey Lady!
    So, I just found your blog and I love it! You’re inspiring me to write one of my own–maybe. =) I love you and miss you and sooo wish I could be there with you experiencing the joys of pregnancy and planning and the likes. I’m sooo excited for you and Brett and who knows, maybe I’ll move back up there one day. I don’t know. All I know is I miss Greenville and I miss you so much too.


    1. Leisha,
      Thank you! I miss you, too! I hope you can at least come up & visit once our little guy arrives. I want him to meet one of my favorite people 🙂
