When my husband and I found out we were having twin boys I wanted to create an elephant nursery that was sophisticated and elegant yet charming for my sweet boys. With a green wall already in place I did a lot of research on nursery designs and then pieced Mason & Henry's room together from there incorporating many things I love: chevron, elephants, and some personal touches.
I love the colors navy, white, and grey together. I also love chevron patterns. After searching around on Pinterest I found many pictures with elephants and thought they were cute. From there I started to come up with elements to the nursery that incorporated all of these things- from the bedding to the pictures on the wall to the rug and little touches. I wanted a nursery that blended into the palate of our home- both in color and in texture.

My favorite items are the cribs. I love the way they look and they are of nice quality. I also love the curtains and the names above the cribs because both look so sweet and were designed specifically for this room and for our boys.
I like to build a room little by little. I started with the cribs and went from there- standing back each time to see which direction I wanted to go and what the room needed. I also like to re-purpose items. The "dresser" is actually my grandmother's china cabinet. I removed the top hutch from it so I could use the bottom portion and have a piece of her in my boys' room.
