Inside Our Safari themed nursery
It was a given that our gender-neutral nursery would be safari themed. Throughout our home, we pay homage to my husband's ancestral roots, with rustic, tribal finishes. So when brainstorming our little one's bedroom, we knew it had to be the same.
We wanted a space that suited our home ( because yes, it had to work with our home's palette and theme ), but also offer character, creativity, enjoyment and fun for our little bubba. And since we opted for keeping the gender a surprise until labour, we also needed something both a boy and girl would enjoy and suit.

We had several safari-themed pieces we wanted to incorporate into the nursery and this really helped with choosing the paint colour and style of furniture. We wanted classic furniture that will work when we re-decorate as our bubba grows. Naturally, white furniture was the best choice, as were natural wood finishes to suit the safari theme.
After a good couple of weeks of getting the nursery ready, we were over the moon for it to be complete and styled ready for bubba's due date ( although Florence didn't arrive for another 10 days! ).
I am so happy with the space, and being completely gender neutral, its just perfect, even for the next one. Since having baby Florence, we have added some splashes of pink, mainly in the way of pink blankets and soft toys.
