Mason’s Modern Safari


We painted this large room a darker color to make it feel smaller and then used bright teal accents to add some excitement. A different approach to a common safari theme.

Design Inspiration

I can't get away from teal. It is just such a pretty color. The moment I found out we were having a boy I had to find a way to incorporate it into his nursery.

Decorating Style

Minimalist meets soft modern.

Project Details

The trees on the wall are vinyl removable decals from Etsy- perfect for a growing, changing child. The curtains were DIY from a dwell studio fabric I found. The bedding is from Etsy. The mobile was a DIY experiment. The ABC art was DIY with the unfinished wood frames & chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby and fabric hot glued on.

Favorite Items

I absolutely love how the bedding turned out. Great mix of colors in my opinion.


We just threw together a bunch of different ideas that we liked, tackled each one at a time and love the end result. A subtle neutral color with bright accents really helped anchor this large room.

    The chair is made by Best Chairs, and we bought it at Baby’s 1st Furniture.

    thanks for the info! and who is the designer of the chair?

    For the Etsy purchases we made, the giraffe is from GoatGrinStudio, the bedding is custom made by RockyTopDesign, and the tree/birds are from NouWall. Oh, and yes the giraffe is also removable. I agree it isn’t quite “safari” themed, but I was trying not to take it so literally. Hope that helps.

    Really nice!  I love the giraffe (is that removable also?) as well as the trees.  I think that this is more of a forest at night theme than a pseudo safari theme :)  I think that the teal you have here really makes this nursery look and feel special.  Great work!
