Modern Safari Nursery
September 16, 2014
Baby fever y'all! It's real. And it hits when you least expect it! Though I'm tooootally not in baby zone quite yet, it doesn't stop me from oogling tiny toes and pinning nurseries left right and center. And at the top of said nursery pin board? This little dude's modern meets safari digs. Designed by Barette Widell and photographed by Renee Dickerson, there's more where this came from right here!

From Barette at Widell Designs... When we found out we were having a baby the very first thing I thought about was how I was going to decorate the nursery. I couldn't wait to find out the sex and in fact started buying things for a baby girl since I was convinced that's what we were having. When we found our we were having a boy not only did we have a name picked out, but we also had all this baby girl stuff to return! I decided that I still wanted to go with the same theme which was a "modern" safari theme. I wanted to keep the colors calm and relaxing whether a boy or girl. I decided to use an old vintage safari themed Gucci scarf that was my moms as the inspiration for the room and pulled shades of blues, grey's, and taupe from it. I also wanted to mix patterns to make sure it wasn't all to matchy matchy and fun animal elements have a fun playful feel to the modern room.
