ElephanTito – nursery for a boy


Baby Boy Nursery

Design Inspiration

Since I learned I was pregnant, the nursery became my little obsession. I spent hours surfing the web, looking at different designs and baby items and enjoyed every minute of it. We where looking for a modern, fresh and clean look, with a hint of vintage and some meaningful details. And a bunch of elephants on top.

Decorating Style

We combined some DIY projects (walls, musical mobile, oversized wooden blocks) with vintage (books, wooden chest) and budget items (second hand, Ikea) and mixed it all into a modern, clean and sleek elephant kingdom for our baby boy.

Project Details

-Striped wall was a big task for me. I really wanted it and there are loads of good tutorials on how to do it online, so I managed to paint it myself. It turned out exactly as planned and I was so happy about it.

- Bed and changing table by Lip Poljcane - we bought those used/second hand

- Bookshelves, rug, lights, shelf, storage boxes, curtains and nursing chair by Ikea

- Pillow and blanket set by Zoeppritz

- Elephant prints by BlackBaroque

- Bedding by Little Charlie May

- Crochet elephant by Sebra

-Musical mobile and oversized decoupage wooden blocks where my DIY projects. I first found the mobile in a store on Etsy, but they where closed for a long time, so I decided to make it myself and it turned out great!

- Baby books on the shelves mainly belonged to my fiancee from when he was a kid and we got a few as gifts. The brown leather baby shoes where his as well.

- The white wooden chest is over 30 years old too, it was a part of my nursery when I was a baby.

Favorite Items

- Elephant prints by BlackBaroque . Printed on gorgeous antique musical pages from the 1800's, I fell in love with them the second I saw them.

- Bedding by Little Charlie May. I wanted a bumper style bedding for the crib but it is not really common to have that over here in Europe. So I asked Annie at LCM to make it for me and ship it over here and we managed to do that. I was super excited about that and I just love it.


I don't know much about interior design, so making a clear decision about what I want and sticking to the color scheme worked for me.

I super love those elephant-on-music-sheet prints! Even more so because these are real old music sheets, right?
