Baby Boy Safari Nursery


I wanted a nursery that my baby boy could grow into. I wanted it to have somewhat of a "theme" but did not want it to appear cheesy. I am so happy with the way this project came out and it seems that my little one is too! You can read more at

Design Inspiration

I wanted his nursery to be fun, colorful, child-like yet something could easily translate into him being a toddler.

Decorating Style

My style is modern, yet traditional, colorful, and classic.

Dresser- Old dresser from hubby's old apartment stripped and painted Behr Dark Cobalt Blue (DIY)

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room has to be the giraffe. Running a close second is my DIY painted blue dresser.


To achieve a similar look I would say have fun. I wanted to make sure the nursery was functional, yet would be a fun place for my baby to occupy.
