William’s Safari


Baby boy nursery inspired by a giraffe cowhide rug.  We started off using neutral colors with pops of blue and ended up with a cozy safari nursery that is peaceful yet playful.

Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted a cowhide rug and iron crib for our baby boy's room.   Everything came together once I found the giraffe rug. 

Decorating Style

Traditional.  I picked furniture that will grow with him for many years to come!

Love it! This is a classic nursery and very calm and soothing! Did you make your crib bedding? I love the pleated bed skirt. Good luck with your new little boy!
