How to Decorate a Modern Safari Nursery
Nursery inspiration ideas are endless and traditional nursery designs are everywhere. Today we’re putting a spin on the typical zoo animal inspired room and we’re sharing a modern safari nursery with a muted color palette and plenty of animals for your little one.
A Neutral Palette
The loveliest colors come together for this modern safari nursery. If you’re finding out your baby’s gender or you want to keep the nursery neutral, then this mix of peach, taupe and teal are perfect for your little one’s room.
Pull colors from the soft patterns and prints you put into the room. This sweet crib bedding printed with animals on it is the perfect print to pull colors from. And once you have your palette decided on, you can find window coverings, wall hangings and rugs to match.
Bring a little bit of modern glam into the room with a touch of gold here and there – gold foil animal prints on the walls will mix well with the touch of gold in a chandelier and the tiny trinkets on the shelves.
A Modern Twist on a Classic
The furniture makes the room when it comes to a nursery, and we’re giving it a modern twist. Start midcentury modern-inspired furniture. With sleek lines and simple design, a midcentury crib and dresser will look wonderful in this space.
Choose a warm colored wood or go with painted white to match your color palette for this room. They act as neutrals in your nursery design and will fit seamlessly into the space.
When your furniture is paired with the gold touches and some other great textures like a sheepskin throw or ottoman, you’ll love spending time in this modern safari nursery.
Modern Animal Prints
Baby animals are a common theme in a nursery, but we’re giving it a modern twist. Find a large print of an animal and use it as a focal point for the space – a big giraffe framed in a white frame would look wonderful hanging on the wall behind a reading nook or glider area. Then, sprinkle in a few other animal pictures above the crib or changing table.
Printed and framed animals don’t have to be the only way to incorporate baby animals into this modern safari nursery. Plush animal heads on the wall are the perfect way to make a statement, and with their soft and whimsical design, your child will love looking at them.
Add animals to the floor coverings or throws too! Roxy Marj has a great line of modern looking animals that are great either on the floor or thrown over the side of the crib or rocker.
