Mason & Henry’s Navy & Elephant Nursery


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.

Design Inspiration

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.

Decorating Style

Traditional with personal touches

Favorite Items

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.
