The Elephant in the Room

Just for kicks, I wanted to design a nursery that reminds me of one of my favorite [lazy] weekend activities: watching BBC’s “Animal Planet”.  My husband is incredibly fascinated by animals, so for his birthday a few years back, I bought him the complete DVD series of “Animal Planet” and “Blue Planet”.  When we’re having a lazy weekend, we can sit for hours and watch cheetahs chasing down a gazelle or a pack of hungry lions attack a full grown elephant.  We’ve both watched each DVD many times (him, more than me), but never cease to be amazed by our amazing planet, and the animal kingdom!

I decided to do [somewhat of] an African themed room with a modern twist.  This is a nursery that can grow with baby.  It can make an easy transition from nursery to kid’s room.  Here are the results:
