The {Modern} Giraffe-Inspired Nursery

When Tara from StrollerTraffic asked me to create a style board and design tips for a new nursery trend she was researching, it sounded like a fun project, but I got even more excited when I found out what this new trend actually was… because it just so happened to be my favorite {wild animal} already – the giraffe!

Since there’s so much cute stuff out there, I had a hard time making decisions (nothing new!) – so I ended up with 2 boards instead of 1.  You’ll find all of the nursery design tips + product links for Board A (pictured above) – over on StrollerTraffic.com, and Board B with product links/info is pictured below.

Modern giraffes are gaining more and more popularity. I can understand, they are so cute. You selected some of my favorite accessories for nurseries.

I also got the Area bedding for my sons room and we have giant size giraffe in the room too!- love it, but have to agree with another post that it dirties up more than I’d like. Its organic bedding, which is great, but the instructions say not to use bleach. I had a tab on the bumper come off as well (but a quick stitch fixed that)

I love the giraffe design boards. The modern look and neutral color schemes with a pop of color is just my style. Thanks for sharing
