Tiago’s room.


This is a small, simple, safari inspired, and budget friendly nursery that I made for my baby boy. I did everything myself. The nursery is almost done, it needs only a nice rug, and the ruffles under the crib. But I confess, at this point, the weight of the belly makes me easily tired. I made this with my baby boy in mind, so I tried to think about everything that a little boy would enjoy. I wanted to explore numbers, letters, colors, and animals as educational items for the nursery. I hope you enjoy.

Design Inspiration

Safari / animals inspired.

Decorating Style

Contemporary, eclectic.

Project Details

Considering we chose the smallest room of the house for the nursery, I decided to choose light/relaxing colors rather than dark paint or wall paper. Also our floor is dark, so light colors on the wall would make more sense. Since I adore white baby furniture, I chose to buy everything white. Colorful accessories makes the room happier and more vibrant.

Favorite Items

I like the little tails that I used as handles. They were wall hooks that I transformed into handles. I like the cubbies as well as the letters on the wall. The recliner is extremely comfortable.


Enjoy your babies, everyday is a unique day. Good luck for all mothers-to-be.
