A Timeless Neutral Nursery

If ever there were a nursery destined for greatness, it would be this little spot. It’s a calming baby oasis filled with cozy rugs and fluffy stuffed animals, crafted by parents to be, Steve and Jamie of Sinclair & Moore Events. These two produce the most beautiful events but this labor of love takes the cake. Have a look at a room thoughtfully curated for baby Grey with images by Matthew Land Studios and more here.

Steve and Jamie Moore’s nursery project for their baby grey. I stopped in a few times to catch up and document the progress of their nursery! It turned out amazing.

“I was advised by multiple people not to invest the time or money into a nursery, because our baby would never know the difference. Three months into being a father, I can honestly say I’m so glad I ignored the opinions of those people, and I am so thankful we created a space that is just for our baby. Putting Grey’s nursery together was one of my ways of bonding with our baby before he was born… preparing his room helped me to prepare my heart. As I painted the walls and hung the drapes I wondered about our child growing within Jamie, day dreamed about who our child would become, and prayed I would be the kind of father our little one deserved. Before Grey ever entered the world, this room was waiting for him and it was filled with hope, peace, purpose and love.

Our nursery is one of our favorite rooms in our home. The sun streaming in makes the room light and airy, and it just feels like an oasis from the busy world where we can watch Grey roll on the floor, read to him, change those dirty diapers and once he is just a bit older, this room is where we will lay him down to sleep.

Jamie and I worked together on every detail of this room, and had so much fun spending the last part of her pregnancy collaborating together on making it special. Here is a little glimpse into the world we created for Grey.” – Steve Moore
