Jaxon’s Baby Animal Nursery


I wanted to create a fun and whimsical space for Jaxon.

Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted to incorporate images of adorable animals in Jaxon's room.  My inspiration for the nursery came from the colors of the jungle.  I wanted to create a warm and welcoming space without spending a fortune.

Decorating Style

As our home is decorated in neutral colors, I wanted to introduce bolder colors into Jaxon's nursery.  I incorporated many pieces we already owned  including a dresser, side table and lamp along with some new pieces like a glider and the artwork.

Project Details

For additional details on the room, check out my blog, The Lovely Bits.

Favorite Items

I fell in love with the fabric from Calico Corners I used for the curtains and the baby animal prints from The Animal Print Shop.  My mom and I made the mobile from branches given to us by a local florist and added the rain drops which were decorations from a brunch thrown by my mom and sister.


I wanted to create a space Jaxon could live in for years to come.  I also wanted to equally enjoy the space myself as I knew I would be spending endless hours in the room the first few months of his life.

I really like the rug - can you tell me where you got yours? I located one similar but was reading the comments from other buyers and they said theirs shed a lot - did you find that your rug shed?

Hello. I purchased the rug from Rug USA. I vacuum quite a lot so I have not noticed a problem with shedding. Since I have a smaller rug, it may also reduce the shedding. I love it and you can't beat the price!!
