Animal Safari Nursery Makeover

What a treat to work with this beautiful family in El Cid!

The styling in this animal safari themed nursery was right on point with bright pops of yellow and green and lots of exotic animals making an appearance. But one thing it didn’t have… a functional closet. Leave that to US!

First thing first, we measured and planned for the closet design using the elfa closet system from The Container Store. It’s a go-to for children’s closets, not just for the accessible price point. The closet’s drawers, shelving and clothing rods can be easily adjusted as the child grows.

We helped this Mom with the overwhelming task of getting all the clothing and baby gear sorted, and then we came up with a functional plan to keep the closet streamlined and organized. Simple white matching hangers are used for the baby’s “fancy” clothes, and cube bins store back stock diapers and less used bedding. We finished off the closet with bright yellow labels that match the nursery’s fun décor!

Next, we moved on to the changing table, which is always a source of clutter for new moms. We set-up a system so she can quickly see, grab and replenish supplies – no matter how sleep deprived.

Thanks to our friends at IDesign for all the fantastic products used in this nursery makeover. These products along with the elfa closet system (30 percent off now!) can be found at The Container Store.
