A Soft, Elephant Themed Nursery

It is a parent’s dream to have a thoughtfully planned out and set up nursery to bring their newborn home to. Today we are sharing inspiration for an elephant themed nursery that will be a soft, serene and cozy place for your baby to sleep and play.

Gray Goodness

The wonderful thing about an elephant themed nursery is the gray tones you can incorporate into it. Gray is gaining in popularity in nursery design because it is gender neutral and lends itself well to so many different design styles and themes. An elephant themed nursery can start out with pale gray walls and gray floor coverings. For a fun contrast, go with a stark white trim or add some moodiness with dark gray one. Either way, you’ll love the feeling gray gives the room.

Furniture with Special Finishes

After choosing the colors for the walls and floor coverings, it’s time to add in the furniture. Choose pieces that are simple and traditional but have extra special finishes – like decorative moulding and fancy knobs. Furniture with clean lines keep the pieces feeling timeless, and the extra touches bring in a little more design and detail.

Functional and Fun Accessories

Be thoughtful when bringing the functional pieces into the room – you can easily incorporate these items to reflect the theme! Baskets for the shelves that are meant to hold blankets and toys can bring a little bit of the theme into the space with an elephant pattern. And accessories, like bookshelves and lamps, can match the theme as well. There are so many ways to execute this elephant themed nursery!

Soft Details

Last but not least, don’t forget the soft details! Elephant inspired blankets, slippers, onesies and stuffed animals bring life to the space and add in pieces that baby will actually wear, use and play with. Mix and match styles and colors so your little one has plenty of options!

No matter the gender, an elephant themed nursery is perfect if you’re looking for a soft and serene place to bring your little one home to. And it is totally customizable to match your style! You’ll love spending time with your baby in his or her little corner of your home.
