Cribspiration: Sophisticated Safari

We love the idea of a sophisticated, yet sassy safari-themed nursery. Blending bold patterns and lots of texture with neutral grey & beige, soft pinks, and pops of red, gives a bold twist on a classic nursery theme. Here’s the inspiration(links below):

Cribspiration: Pop of Color

Today’s cribspiration comes from paper pom poms. At Baby Aspen, we use paper pom poms for nearly every celebration and shower to enhance the theme and bring a pop of color to our conference party room. Paper pom poms are a great way to add a pop of color to a nursery too! Making them is a cheap and easy DIY project that makes a big impact. You can re-purpose your party decorations from shower decor to nursery decor. They are also a great way to add a color statement to a gender-neutral room once the baby is born.

Here are the step-by-step instructions from Martha Stewart:
