This nursery is intended to be a safe and fun place for my daughter to sleep, play, and relax in. I wanted her to be able to grow with the room – so I opted for an exciting wallpaper that would be appealing to a toddler and young child as well. We love animals in our family and we’re hoping to pass that onto our daughter.
This is a nursery nook as it is shared with the master bedroom. Even still, I wanted to make sure the baby had it’s own space which was a cute as possible while still fitting the entire master bedroom vibe.
I used removable animal print decals on the wall so when the baby moves out of this space, the parents can simply remove them to have their adult space back. Because this room was going to be shared with adults, I chose a generally neutral pallet with a pop of green/turquoise color to support my safari theme.
The rug from Ruggable really completes the space. It’s bold pattern activates the room and provides a whimsy yet sophisticated design to the space.
We fell in love with the wall mural, and the room fell in place around it. I knew if we did a jungle theme the traditional rocker needed to be replace with a swing. The crib bring and dresser put a modern twist on the room while also pulling a natural element with the natural color incorporated. A few elements in the room were DIY including the ceiling light, the elephant bookcase, and the palm leaf name wall hanging.
After having infertility challenges and finally becoming pregnant with her first baby through IVF, Elyse wanted to create a nursery space that channeled her creativity while providing a calming and inviting space to welcome home the sweet baby boy that she dreamed about for years. She enjoys filling her San Francisco home with high end items sourced on a discount and took that same energy into this nursery project. Elyse enjoys being in the outdoors and loves animals, so she chose a colorful safari theme for her son’s bedroom. The way she designed it made it gender neutral for future siblings to utilize as well. She sourced the main furniture and rugs from Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Outlet, and the bookshelves and end table from Amazon. The statement wallpaper was sourced from Anewall which really brings the safari theme to life! She topped it off with some statement finds from Homegoods, Amazon, Anthropologie as well as custom paintings created by friends and family for a personalized charm.
Elyse thoroughly enjoyed this project and would love to help others create the nursery of their dreams without breaking the bank. Please contact her on instagram @elysecasey or via email [email protected]
She hopes you enjoy this project as much as she does!
I chose a gender neutral modern theme for our nursery for our first baby! I went with a Batten Board accent wall with a Herringbone Hand Stencil on top. We chose to keep the gender a surprise until delivery and loved that this design could be used for both a girl or a boy!
I wanted a peaceful and relaxing space for all of those late night feedings and stressful moments. I was inspired by monstera leaves and a jungle theme with a neutral palate. I decided to go with gray, white, blue-green and black, with gold hardware accents.
Not knowing the gender of our baby, I wanted a room that a boy or girl would love. I myself love the jungle, so I thought this would be perfect. It started out by finding the wallpaper from my husband and my’s favorite city – Amsterdam. After we hung that up on one wall, everything fell into place! I wanted to stick with white and gold as the main colors, with accents of jungle vibes. I also love dinosaurs, so I through some dinosaurs in there as well – since dinosaurs live in the jungle!
I chose a soothing color palette of blues, grays, creams and whites to incorporate the theme of jungle animals! My son’s nursery is a small space, and I wanted to make the most of it. The room is rich with texture and plain expanses of colors and neutrals with pattern mixed in. I had to repurpose a few large items (crib, glider, and ottoman) that belonged to my daughter, so that was the starting point with the furniture. As he grows older and his tastes evolve, the animal accessories and art can be swapped out for “big boy” decorations while the main colors and furniture remain!
Hi! I am Amanda Louise Campbell of Amanda Louise Interiors and I am a Decorator in Greenville, SC. I got to help my sweet client create this space for her new baby boy. She wanted the space to have Midcentury elements and an animal theme. We used an eclectic mix of new items, custom pillows and window treatments, vintage finds, and family heirlooms to create a meaningful space to welcome this boy boy home to. We also tried to make sure the space could transition well from baby, toddler, to full blown boy. We love this space and hope for it to inspire others.
We wanted a nursery that was gender neutral and projected our passion for being green. The nursery is very small (9’6″ x 9′) so we wanted a clean and uncluttered look.
