Sweet and Serene Safari Nursery

A few weeks ago one of my favorite clients told me that “surprise!” she was adopting a baby and that he would be here in less than two months. We kicked it into high gear designing a beautiful nursery for her baby-to-be. She wanted it to be “animal” themed so this is the board I came up with. 
One thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to use a print from the Animal Print Shop
I LOVE all of their cute animals and I am excited to use the Elephant one above the changing table. I also loved the idea of using a couple of these bla bla mobiles
Here is a look at the room so far! I’ll post pictures as soon as it’s all done. 
Don’t you just love the starry ceiling!

    That ceiling is amazing. And I love the rug–I like the "imperfect chevron" look with the the different widths. Can't wait to see it finished!

    So great. I love it all! My client just welcomed a baby girl and he wanted to honor she and her husband's honeymoon on safari in Africa so we did a really fun, girly take on safari and I specified that same rug in aqua because I love that its modern but the uneven chevrons are almost zebra like. Can't wait to see the rest of the room. Adoption is so special. Congrats to your clients!

    I have been on a pinning kick this week with those animal prints. I can't pick a favorite! Adorable room!

    Wow wow wow!! I cannot wait to see the finished room. I love the drama that the rug adds, especially against the sweet starry sky. How very exciting for your client!!

    I LOVE this room! I am currently working on designing my 3rd daughters room…and I would LOVE to do that to the ceiling, but I am renting:( However, I am thinking some removeable decals! I cannot wait to see the rest of this room! Great work!

      You totally should! We used vinyl decals too!

    Love it! We have a basset hound print from the Animal Print Shop – my daughter loves it. 😀 Where did you find the rug? I would love to put it in our living room.

    Love that! It looks like it's going to be super-cute! What an exciting time for your client! My SIL and her husband just adopted their son from India, and we are all so smitten with him! Thanks for sharing your design, Kirsten! Have a great weekend!
