Create a nursery in shades of grey and white with bright blue elephants to bring a cheerful, popular children’s motif to your baby’s space. A blue elephant-themed nursery is a suited for girls and boys. Here’s how you can put together this adorable theme for your nursery.
Furniture Wooden furniture in a distressed white finish is the perfect complement to this theme. Select nursery furniture like baby changing tables and baby bassinets in this finish and introduce color and pattern with the use of bedding and changing table toppers.
Baby bassinets are a wonderful way to give baby a secure sleeping space. They usually include caster wheels and are portable so you can keep a watchful eye on baby when you are doing chores around the home. Baby bassinets are also available with bedding sets which include a lovely pleated skirt, soft bumper, fitted sheet, and drape canopy. Opt for baby bedding in a fabric with elephant motifs to tie in to the theme.
Baby changing tables that have a combination of open and closed sections are ideal for the nursery. Changing tables with height adjustable shelves can make storage and organization in your nursery easy. Select convertible furniture in the form of baby changing tables that transform into dressers after the topper is removed. This will help you reuse your nursery furniture as your baby grows.
Accessories Nursery decor accessories like rugs, valances and wall decals can help reinforce the elephant motif and harmonize your decor. Look for ceramic elephant-shaped lamps or create your own using a lamp kit and an elephant-shaped vase or teapot. An elephant mobile hung over the bassinet or crib can add a playful touch.
A large plush elephant in one corner of the nursery can serve as an oversized toy as well as a cute themed accessory for hanging extra bedding. Large decorative pillows with elephant motifs can add cozy comfort to your nursing chair and to other nursery furnishings like daybeds. Line your nursery storage baskets with a mix of plaids and elephant-themed fabric in the same colors to create a balanced look.
Create a beautiful blue elephant nursery for your little one using these simple ideas.
