Real Room Tour: Marcus’ Soothing Safari

Yean, aka Mrs. Julius, of the blog “My Sunrise, Sunshine & Sunset“, was so kind to send me a message sharing photos of her gorgeous son Marcus’ nursery.  I am so flattered that she was able to use this blog to find some inspiration for this chic and soothing space.

The focal point of the room is the crib wall, where a Gulliver crib from Ikea sits against the Birch Trees Vinyl Wall Decal from wallwordz.  This is a very popular nursery motif and I love the pops of yellow from the birds in this particular version.  I also love the bedding choice from babydarling on etsy, which Yean discovered in my post from last February.  Awesome!

The shelf above the crib features a Fisher Price Teaching Clock that belonged to Marcus’ father as a child.  I love when people use their own treasured toys in their children’s rooms.  In case your parents threw yours out decades ago, you can pick up a remake of the clock (or lots of other Fisher Price classics).

The  Ikea Expedit features some closed storage (which is great for reducing visual clutter) as well as some wild stuffed occupants.

Yean made the crib mobile herself and so it’s super customized to match the nursery perfectly.

The reading and changing area includes some personal mementos as well as some Ikea staples like the dresser and the chair.

Yean discovered the animal alphabet print from inktree press in one of my posts and had it customized to go with the colors in this room.  Love it!

Spread throughout the room are some additional elephants.

Congratulations Yean on the incredible job you did decorating this nursery and on your adorable little guy!  Thank you so much for sharing it with me and for supporting Buy Modern Baby!

To read more about this nursery, please visit the nursery post on Yean’s blog.  She was able to put all this together for less than her $1500 budget!  You also don’t want to miss the sweetest video of a 4 day old Marcus peacefully enjoying his cozy little spot.
