A Gentleman’s (Wild) Kingdom


After designing my daughter's nursery, I knew I wanted to create an equally fun and eclectic space for our son. Like before, this was a labor of love...From picking out the design elements to installing a stone wall! It's a mix of DIY and store bought. A little kingdom for our little prince :)

Design Inspiration

The theme in my head was all over the place, but I definitely had a vision. It included exploration, animals, study, royalty, travel, and plenty of whimsy. With a masculine touch. Make sense?

Decorating Style

Colorful, pattern, texture, lots of little details!

The airstone wall is a PROJECT, so just be ready to tackle it. It's easy, but time consuming.

If you don't like matchy-match crib bedding, create your own!I bought different kinds of sheets, pillows, a throw, and made the crib skirt.

Don't be afraid to mix pattern, colors, textures. Experiment even if it seems crazy! Be bold.

Add personal touches - family memorabilia, photos from travel, etc. This will make it even more special.

    The elephant in the crib was a handmade gift from a friend – otherwise I would link :( It’s super cute! The burlap animals were SUCH a good find – and only $20. Amazing!

  7. avatar Project:Baby says:

    It’s also from World Market – but it was the last one I saw in store! Maybe online?

    Love that rocking sheep! Where is it from?

  12. Love this room & I just happened to stumble across it right as I am decorating my son’s big boy room which is somewhat jungle/travel themed. Wish I had a Garden Ridge near me because I love those burlap animals and do you remember where you got the stuffed elephant in the crib? Beautiful work!

    Ohmigosh I LOVE this! I love the stone wall treatment, and the gray. I love that you have color, but it’s subtle and not too “babyish”. This is a stunning room!
