My husband and I wanted to create a nursery that felt like an African safari for our baby boy, Elijah. We chose to focus on navy blue and tan as our color scheme.
We were inspired by African safaris.

I love the rocking chair from my grandmother's home. It reminds me of her. I also love the DIY zebra rug and light fixture. They may look very handmade, but it was so much fun to make with my husband!
