As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I dreamt of some sort of a safari themed nursery. The very first thing I did purchase for the nursery were a couple of little giraffes, which turned into the entire theme!
When I started designing Taylor’s nursery in our new house, I wanted to a neutral grey paint color. I loved the purplish undertones of Benjamin Moore’s Sidewalk Gray that would complement the pink and gold accents beautifully. We already had picked out the white crib from Potterybarn and dresser from Land of Nod.
Since the room is so small with one window, bringing more light in was key. What better way to do that with a huge mirror? I love how it reflects the window to maximize the natural light. With that said, blackout drapes were a must! Imagine taking a very necessary midday nap in a sun filled room? Not going to happen. The blackout drapes are from Potterybarn kids and I went with the white not only to keep the room light, but to coordinate with our existing furniture.
I created some easy DIY artwork with some gold leaf and butterflies that were leftover place cards from my wedding. So easy to do and they look beautifu! I also added gold circle decals to make the room a little more playful.
