Having just moved in to our new home when we found out we were pregnant, the "someday nursery" needed a plan right away. I knew regardless of gender that I would stick to the same basics as big brother's room - gray and white. I saw an emerald dresser on Pinterest and couldn't shake the accent color. If we had a girl I would have added another pop of color/florals to add femininity to the nursery; however I'm blessed to be a "boy mom" so no need to add in another color!
I found the angular animals accidentally while in At Home for some Christmas decor, and that sparked the modern take on a safari nursery. I used the crib and dresser from Grayson's room and he got an upgrade to a big boy bed.
It was important to me too keep the nursery clean and modern, yet classic. I hope I accomplished combining these opposites.
My dad and husband framed the back wall, inspired also by a master bedroom I saw on Pinterest, although the weekend before Carter's arrival I almost changed that wall to a faux whitewashed brick wall... someday this could still happen but for now I will keep the classic framing.
