Jensen's Safari Themed Nursery

Safari Themed Nursery

Baby Jensen will be coming home to a light and airy nursery with some wonderfully unique and special details. His mom Jenna Alexander was inspired by her time living in Tanzania and thought a safari theme would be perfect. Jensen also got his name from his grandfather, who founded a hospital in East Africa. With this in mind, Jenna brought in items from her travels, like the mosquito netting curtains and leather ottoman. There are also personal pieces in the room, from the vintage crib that Jensen's dad used as a baby to the fantastic giraffe and monkey drawings illustrated by Jenna and then DIY framed by his dad. The walls were painted in the softest mint fizz color, which adds to the soothing feeling in the room. We know Jensen is going to love this space!
