Finally, a baby elephant + a new nursery!

It may be small, but it packs a pretty-and tiny-fisted-punch. Clean, crisp, and sophisticated, baby Dash’s Los Angeles nursery is our second Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the finished room. (See our first nursery project, completed last fall, here.) But first, come on in…

Dash’s parents, photographers Max and Margaux Wanger, are dear friends of The Animal Print Shop, and we’re longtime fans of the duo’s always-inspiring work. So when the two turned over total creative control of their little one’s room (a cozy nook in the corner of their charming Los Angeles home), we knew we had a welcome challenge on our hands.

Especially exciting for us was the opportunity to design the room around the addition of our very own baby, Baby Elephant – a brand-new, much-anticipated Print Shop family member. “What’s better than a baby elephant?” says Max.

We teamed up with designer Morgan Satterfield to create a bright, modern space fit for a design-savvy little man-in-the-making. Alongside Baby Elephant, hand-blocked curtains in black and gray, a custom-built floating dresser/changing table, and a modern wooden crib were our centerpieces; a one-of-a-kind mobile, a cheerful whale pillow, and a neon yellow tassel garland made for eye-catching accents.

“We love that Dash has such a colorful and happy space of his own,” says Margaux. “He’s going to love this.” We couldn’t be happier to hear it!

Many thanks to Max and Margaux for letting us take over their house for three days and trusting in us to deliver the goods (sorry about the grass!), The MinimalistOeufOneFortyThree, and especially Morgan Satterfield (we know, she’s a badass.)
