For the past 15 years I have been creating artwork for children’s rooms and nurseries.  In my experience, the number one  request I get is utilizing the motif of Safari Animals.  Check out some great and unexpected safari finds below!  Some from my studio in NYC, and some from all over the world!  Its a Jungle out there…and in here!

This to me, is Safari done wrong. It is overwhelming and busy. The curved lines and white furniture style does not jive with the look. To me, this is a big Safari Fail.

This look from ApartmentTherapy.com is well edited, and unexpected! I love the broad green stripe, it really pulls the space together. The modern rug keeps the room current and stylish.

This is a mural I created for a family in NYC. The look is dreamy, and soft, however the one wall of horizontal broad stripes, makes a modern graphic statement.

Inke Heiland from the Netherlands, makes amazing Safari Sihlouettes out of vintage wallpapers. So Cute 'n' Chic!



Inke's Wallpaper cut out animals rules this room with a very stylish hoof! This is a wonderfully eclectic room featured in the much missed Domino Magazine. The color of the floor in inspired!

Petit Collage's artworks are both adoreable and eco chic!

Petit Collage also makes very cute growth charts!

This elelove lamps from Sammy is so sweet! A stack of peanuts make up the center post, and the lamp has a built in dimmer switch.

This Elephant on a Vine artwork is classic and endearing, yet looks very stylish against the graphic dot pattern on the wall treatment. A great way to use modern style that is Cute 'n' Chic.

Dwell Studio does it again! I love this beown and creme Zebra rug! WILD!

For those of you who are partial to a classic baby feel, this embroidered bedding by Gordonsbury is sweet and buttery.

"Bring your own bananas" is one of my most popular artworks. It is 20x40, hand crafted, and made with love and style in the USA.

Hope some of these tips tap into your wild side, and remember it is a jungle out there!
