Jayden’s Modern Safari Nursery


A modern safari themed room on a military spouse's budget.

Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted his room to be safari themed but I didn't want it to be the typical kind that you always see. I bought a lot of the things and painted the colors to fit what I wanted. I knew the colors would be blue, grey, white, and black so I just built the nursery off that.

Decorating Style

Modern with a personal touch.

Project Details

Giraffe and elephant statues, blue curtains, black wall shelves, & Zebra foam rug - ROSS (I took them home and painted them different colors to match the room)

Letters over crib & Canvas pictures on wall - MICHAELS (I spray painted the letters black and I hand painted the wall art myself with no stencil)

Crib, changing pad, changing pad cover, crib mattress & crib skirt -AMAZON

Crib sheet & stuffed elephant -POTTERY BARN KIDS


Stuffed animals in Crib - Giraffe (Nordstroms) Zebra (Carter's)

"Love you to the moon and Back" sign & picture frames on dresser - HOME GOODS

Animal picture frame on top of wall shelf was a DIY project from my first son's nursery 10 years ago that I repainted to match his brothers room.

Favorite Items

Canvas wall art, white and black painted giraffe, and zebra foam rug.


Start decorating early on....don't shop at just one store.... take your time and look around until you find exactly what you want. If you can't find what you want, create it yourself!

I love the warm, neutral colors. The room is very soothing without a lot going on.
