Get ready for Gray. It’s a hot trend in interiors and it’s here to stay.
Gray is the new neutral. At Young America, we have two new gray finishes, a soft gray paint, Sandpiper and a deeper gray wood tone, Slate. The varying hues of gray are both rich in tone…and both serve as great neutrals for a child’s nursery, bedroom or play area.
Inspired by nature, these distinctive gray finishes mimic the layers of color and varying shades of gray found in natural elements like sand and stone.
…and here are some images of childhood memories with a gray twist…
…and now for our new colors…
Take a look at an Abigail crib in Sandpiper…
…and a Tribute crib in Slate…
Beautiful, right? We love our new grays.
…and lastly, How sweet is this?

Appealing to boys of all ages, the new Young America Boardwalk Collection in our Graphite will withstand the tests of every age and stage.
Graphite is dark grey. Look at these pencils. Pencils use graphite. Though dark and very grey, the hue of graphite may be cooler than other shades of grey… call us for a sample.

Meet Grace, a baby one day and a busy toddler the next. Beaming with happiness, she’s quick with a giggle and moves from here to there with (alarmingly) quick feet. Life speeds up when kids transition to toddlerhood. Good thing her Young America crib is a quick change artist, converting to a toddler bed faster than you can say “I’m a big girl!” View Grace Crib online

A colorful ribbon mobile will delight your little one as she drifts off to dream land. A variety of widths, patterns and textures allows you to mix and match colors to suit her nursery décor. Even the lightest breeze makes the mobile turn, spin and flutter.
Just gather ribbons you have or take a trip to a local craft, fabric or floral supply store. Use a wood or plastic embroidery or quilting hoop in the diameter of your choice; hoops can be round or square. A wreath ring is an option too. Next, tie ribbons on in a variety of lengths until it’s full and satisfying. Use 3-4 ribbons of equal length to suspend it over your baby’s crib or changing table. Vibrant, flowing ribbons are mesmerizing and artsy anywhere in a child’s living space.
New Year. New You. Clean Slate…. and all that. January seems to be a time of resolutions to get life and stuff in order. So with organization on the mind, we’ve been on a search and find mission. Seeking inspirational images from our Young America catalogs and searching online for creative and compelling organizational ideas. Here’s one of our favorite Young America secret space-spacer and organizational ideas…
This desk fits over a bed for breakfast…
and then you can roll the Dana Scooter Desk away over a Dana Nesting Media Chest. Or when you’re ready to get to work, roll up a Bailey Banker Chair. Homework, drawing, playing a game… that kind of work.
Colorful baskets, boxes and bins serve to keep the room orderly as well.
Great sources for organizational items: Container Store, Ikea and Target. Sometimes you can find great storage solutions in the attic or basement too!
