For this room, we wanted to spark the child’s sense of wonder with a Safari themed nursery.
When tackling a room that is the most important room in the home (as expectant parents would argue),
we wanted to ensure we found the right balance of ‘baby’ but not too much ‘baby’. For us, creating an environment that could grow with the child became extremely important and was key when choosing the decor + features.
To start off, we needed to inject some life into what was the small spare bedroom. The overall vibe had an almost
schoolhouse dorm-like feel and needed some love and attention. To do this, we painted the walls using Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion grey, which is a classic mid-grey with subtle blue undertones that added a contemporary touch and sense of spaciousness.
Using gold metallic elephant decals instead of wallpaper, was an easy way for us to drive home the safari theme
without having to commit to this theme for many years to come. We then paired this with a grey and white rug
to soften up the hardwood floors and added bespoke watercolour animal prints above the bed as a focal point.
