And, we were happy to help with our elephant wall decals. She tells us, “Your elephant wall decals are so cute!  I loved how I was able to mix and match to create the look I was going for. And, I love that your wall decals are made of eco-friendly fabric. The texture is great!” We couldn’t resist asking her to share her decorating inspiration and are so glad she was willing. She tells weeDECOR, “I love to travel and I love elephants. When I go places, I always look for elephant knickknacks. When I found out I was expecting, I thought it would be fun to create an elephant themed nursery bringing into the baby’s room much of the elephant décor I had purchased over the years.” She adds, “I also can’t resist Restoration Hardware Baby&Child bedding for their simple and modern style. And, since we didn’t want to find out the gender of our baby ahead of time, it made sense to stick with baby bedding in a neutral green.” Mom purchased Restoration Hardware Baby & Child’s modern polka dot crib sheeting featuring silver sage and chocolate brown dots. She paired it with their 240-thread-count percale gathered crib skirt in silver sage and chocolate piping. Her chair and ottoman is from Daisy Baby in Bethesda, a fabulous baby boutique (she tells us) for moms in the area. Mom finished off baby’s room with elephant themed wall décor. Above the top of her crib, she aligned four of our small elephant wall decals in mocha and brown and added a touch of green with two green wall decal shrubs on either side.  She also accented the nursing corner above her glider with another elephant, a tall palm tree (in small) and a few more shrubs.  And, she hung an elephant print right above her changing table. One of the things that makes her elephant themed nursery so crisp and modern is she used lots of light colors and white in the room that make her chocolate brown décor choices – her glider, her brown crib bumper ties, and her chocolate brown rug border – visually “pop”. Just darling!

An Unforgettable Elephant Themed Nursery September 09 2009

[caption id="attachment_606" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Elephant Theme Baby Nursery Decor"]Elephant Theme Baby Nursery Decor[/caption] We immediately fell in love with this adorable elephant themed nursery - perfect for baby boys.  Elephants are a classic nursery theme in baby nursery decoration and this room’s green and brown color scheme is a refreshing twist on the popular theme.  While this cozy nursery has espresso baby furniture, we could see the elephant accessories working beautifully with white baby furniture as well.  All you need is a splash of gorgeous sage wall paint to create a custom look that ties the room together. This seemingly endless set of elephant-themed baby room decorations is from Carters.  Approach the baby room theme with a light touch with just the 4-piece baby crib bedding set.  Or, accessorize to your heart’s content with elephant wall art, window valances, mobiles and more.  Be sure to look at the elephant lamp.  We think it’s perfect for adding a note of whimsy to any baby nursery.

[caption id="attachment_559" align="aligncenter" width="280" caption="Blue Elephant Wall Decal for a Safari Baby Nursery"]Elephant wall decal for a safari baby nursery[/caption] We love this collection of wall decals (or wall stickers) from Giggle, the NYC-based modern baby store.  The first of which is an elephant and mouse combo - perfect for a jungle or safari theme baby room.  It is a neutral enough color and style that would work well when decorating a boy or girl nursery.  You can buy the rest of the collection which includes a pink hippopotamus, orange lion, and brown monkey. As we've noted before, safari theme nurseries are very popular these days and wall decor is a great way to create the jungle look in a way that adds interest and playfulness.  And, because wall decals are easily removable, they are a great option should you want to switch themes oh, every few months or so because there are so many great ones out there :) This wall decal is $36 and is 26" high by 18" wide. Don't be shy about browsing around if you are looking for other baby nursery decals and decorating ideas.

The safari theme is very popular in nursery decorating these days and it's easy to see why!  There are so many great animal motifs from which to choose.  These baby nursery decals for the wall from Fawn&Forest are just one of many designs from which to find inspiration. 

The collection comes with 34 animals including elephants, giraffes, birds, lions, tigers, bears, camels, ducks, and more.  Use all or mix-and-match to your liking.  These wall stickers come in other colors but they are not the standard nursery colors.  So, if you are looking for something a bit different, this may be right for you.  The brown pictured here will likely match most of the existing nursery decor palettes if you are looking for a safer bet. 

The wall graphics can be used to decorate a playroom or another area of your home where you are looking to add a playful touch.  The decals are removable and reusable and sell for a very reasonable $40.

[caption id="attachment_454" align="aligncenter" width="430" caption="Baby Nursery Decals in Jungle Scene"]Baby Nursery Decals in Jungle Theme[/caption] Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!  How precious are these baby nursery decals in this jungle nursery theme?  Found on etsy (another one of our favorite sites), seller ChickadeeVinyl has some awfully cute home decor designs.  This decal may be missing the bear but, hey, bears don't live in the jungle. And, this isn't Oz. This is your own personal baby safari. The nursery decal does have a giraffe, monkey, palm tree, and a super cute elephant.  It is just perfect if you are decorating a baby's room or are looking for unique wall decor for a kid's room. We love the chocolate brown and mint green color combo.  This is a great color scheme for decorating boys' rooms.  And, wall decals are a great DIY wall mural option. The decal measures 12"x50", is made of adhesive vinyl safe for walls, and comes in other nursery appropriate colors.  Best of all, ChickadeeVinyl says they have a total satisfaction guarantee.  This baby nursery decal for your wall sells for $35.  Be sure to browse more of our other nursery wall decal finds.
