Safari Nursery Design Board

I love decals. They allow an instant makeover to a room with the addition of color and interest. I recently came across a delightful safari decal on Etsy. I loved the effect of the decal with the particular color scheme chosen against a deeper color wall. I decided to create a nursery design board around the decal. I found some artwork which I thought to be perfect. I love how the colors pop (soothingly but with enough interest) against the Benjamin Moore historic color I picked. Again, I find this to be a warm, calm color. This is what I came up with.

Linking up today:

Thank you for stopping by; please do check back often.


  1. LOVE the makes a great foundation for a kid's room, especially with the pops of color you have added. Well done!


  2. It's very cute, but not cutesy. I love the decal and prints from etsy. Such a great source for art.

  3. So adorable! I love the idea of using decals. Simply peel them off when the child outgrows them.

  4. I really love the trendypeas prints from Etsy - I've had a few of those saved in my favorites for some time. This palette is a bit muted for my taste, but overall I like the mix of prints and pattern - and I also like that this could be for a little boy or girl. Nice work!

  5. That decal is gorgeous and I love the fact the wall colour is interesting but is neutral enough to work with other colours when they grow up!

  6. Love this design board! Love the decal as well!

  7. I love the wall color. I am all about painting the walls a neutral color (since painting is such a chore!) and adding color in accessories, bedding, etc. I did the same thing in my son's nursery.

  8. Super cute color scheme! I love a jungle nursery!

  9. Adorable nursery board. Decals are a great way to add interest to a nursery. I like the color, I think it works well with everything you have used to make the room pop.

  10. Adore the decal and the Etsy prints! I love neutral nurseries with a modern touch! Adorable room!
