About This Space

The goal in designing my son's room was that it be colorful, full of texture & three-dimensional. Each scene is made up of at least three layers of media. I tried to carry the jungle theme throughout the nursery by having branches continue through the verticle blinds & appear on the next wall. The trees were made out of foam board. Then we added contact paper, jungle themed paper & various layers of greenery. The animal photos were taken at various zoos & blown up to poster size (20 x 30). We cut them out & glued them to poster board then adhered them to the wall with liquid nails. We used various shades of grasses & cattails over a green hill for the baby zebra scene. The cheetah's rock was painted with Ralph Lauren River Rock paint to add a rough texture & completed the scene with tall grass. Finally, the orangutan & giraffe have manilla rope & netting to give them an extra layer. These will be removed once our baby boy is old enough to cause any havoc! ; ) It was a huge project that my niece, nephew & I worked on during my maternity leave. One pleasant surprise in the design was the movement in the greenery when the ceiling fan is on. The gentle rustling of the leaves & grass add a nice touch that really makes the room come alive. The nursery turned out just as I had hoped & I'm thrilled every time my newborn son curiously stares around at the jungle in his room!
