Cute Nesting Ideas
When Ashley Teague learned she was pregnant, the outdoorsy Georgian (shown here) was stoked to put together a room that revolved around nature, so she tapped her sister Joni Lay, creator of nursery design blog Lay Baby Lay. "We introduced a few safari elements, but we made sure it had a calm, neutral feel," Lay says. Is jungle chic a thing? We think so! Read on for Lay's secrets.
Create The Look
Here's how Lay created her baby's safari-esque haven:
1. Lay went a little safari by hanging a wildlife illustration and a wee bit country with prints of the great outdoors. Touches from different themes can totally cohabit.
2. Lay rolled out a fluffy rug over the wall-to-wall carpet to add texture and anchor the room.
3. When there wasn't enough fabric for these custom curtains, Lay added a contrasting band of chevron at the bottom to achieve the desired length—and unexpected flair.
