Elephant Nursery for Levi


We wanted to provide Levi a nursery that he could grow into as toddler by avoiding the typical baby elephant theme. Instead we used the elephant painting to inspire an artsy elephant nursery.

Design Inspiration

My husband I fell in love with elephants when visiting Thailand and purchased the painting for a future baby room.

Decorating Style

Neutral kind of girl that likes texture with some pops of color and incorporating family created pieces in the space.  Might have a slight obsession with pillows.
