{Design Board} Hakuna Matata Mala

I’m going to be an Aunty very, very soon (Mala is the bubs nickname) and seeing that Mala would need a stylish nursery, they asked I insisted on putting together a design for them!
When they told me what style of room they liked, I have to say I was hesitant (I haven’t told them that…..yep Mr & Mrs C, I was worried) when they told me they liked a little bit of an animal/safari themed room.  I’m sure you have all seen the really garish safari nurseries complete with leopard print chairs and huge giraffe peering over the cot…..they make me gag! 
So my challenge was to make a gender neutral (I’m tipping it’s going to be a boy, but my hubby thinks it will be a girl…..I guess one of us will be right!), stylish and subtle animal nursery.  And I have to say I think I achieved it!  It is my favorite design to date!
I have spoken before of my love for blue here, regardless of boy or girl, so for the colour scheme we incorporated blue, yellow & grey.  However, if baby is a girl, I did also give Mr & Mrs C options to add in a dash of pink.

I’ve been making the bunting for them to hang over the cot and am popping it in the post today to send up to them!  Photos of it to come.
So, you tell me……what do you think?

I think they are so lucky to have a sister/in-law like you!

And I think I'm so glad I've found your blog, because honestly ... I could look at photos of nurseries!

LOVE your work!
