Subtle Safari Nursery for Baby Aiden


We started to decorate the nursery before we knew the sex of the baby, so we knew we needed to do something gender-neutral. We decided on yellow and gray paint colors. I wanted texture in the room, so we built a stone wall and I painted a stencil on one wall. We found little stuffed animals that we couldn't live without, and they helped us decide to do a safari theme. I'm not a professional designer and haven't really had a good reason fully decorate a room before, so I had a ton of fun with Aiden's nursery! Most nursery photos taken by Shades of Gray Photography.

Design Inspiration

Project Nursery played a huge part in my inspiration for this safari nursery. I found most of the items for my nursery off a previous project, and either bought the item or found a way to DIY.
