Nurseries are one of my favorite rooms to design. There is just something so magically about getting together with new mom and dad’s to be that are excited and eager to put together a room that will make them feel at home, cozy and happy.
Here is a recent e-decorating colorful safari nursery design that I did for a little boy a couple of months ago. He was born a couple of weeks ago so, I felt it was fitting to share this happy space!
No.2 Citron roman shades are clean lined and classic and can be lined in black out fabric, which is perfect for a nursery.
No.3 The remaining walls are to be painted in Dolphin Fin by Behr and the ceiling will need to get a striped paint job in orange and white.
No.4 Since bumpers aren’t recommend I just like to dress up the crib with a crib sheet and crib skirt. My favorite source for crib sheets is Land of Nod. This striped crib sheet would work perfectly in this space.
No.5 Let’s face it a pretty mobile is not really for the baby, but mainly for the parents. I always source a pretty one, but at the end of the day your baby is going to want something bold that plays loud music.
No.6 Love the the added visual interest of these stacked cubes. The provide nice vertical space, don’t have a huge footprint and would be a great home for books and toys. I would get a pair and flank crib with them.
No.7 Adorable elephant hamper that comes in a couple different shades that work in the room.
No.8 Industrial sconce to go on the wall with the glider and provide a little light for story time.
No.9 Cute wooden zebra cut out that I would actually mount on a wall by the baseboard of the floor as a cute little peek a boo.
No.10 Classic crib skirt. Love the banding detailing.
No.11 I love, love, love this rug. It has a great diamond graphic on it and the frayed detailing on it make it super cozy for little feet.
No.12 The space has an awkward section of wall where it’s not large enough for furniture, but needs a little something to make it speak. A set of these zebra prints in the largest size will fill it nicely.
No.13 More artwork picks for the space like this charming lion print. So many more adorable animals in the shop! For something a little more graphic I love this print that is an instant download and features one of my favorite Cat Stevens lyrics. Ok, so it’s my only favorite Cat Stevens lyric, but it’s a good one. I would group the two prints with this cute and colorful garland.
No.14 A minimalist round mirror for above the dresser.
No.15 Tribal and geometric storage baskets to go in the open shelving changing table that is already in the room. Can be filled with diapers, wipes, etc.
No.16 Stuffed animal busts to flank the main windows in the space. Animal busts are from Target’s Pillowfort line, but are no longer available online.
No.17 Elephant knobs to swap out existing knobs on dresser.
No.18 Josef Franks Citrus Garden fabric is perfect for a throw pillow.
No.19 A chic glider at an affordable price point is hard to find. I love this one, because it’s so pretty that after it’s been used in a nursery it can easily go into a living room or family room.
No.20 A geometric stool works perfectly in this sitting nook. It adds a modern element to the nursery and mimics some of the existing graphic pattern in the space.
No.21 Striped John Robshaw throw with tassels. Nice little blanket for while you are using glider and it adds texture and pattern to this area.
Can’t wait to see photos of the space from the new mom and dad!
