Elephant Nursery Decor – Boys Navy Blue and Grey

A highly popular choice among parents is elephant nursery decor. This collection features a pop of color (navy blue) with a great neutral color to tie it together (grey). This would make for an exceptionally cute baby boy nursery!

Bedding and Then Some

To start, the most important part of the nursery decor is the bedding for the crib. The rest of the nursery decor is usually centered around the theme of the bedding. The Bacati Elephants 10 Piece Crib Bedding Set provides most of the bedding plus some matching bonus items.

Bacati Elephants 10 Piece Crib Bedding Set

Available at: Walmart.com ($105.99)

Color: Navy Blue / Grey

Pieces: fitted crib sheets (X2) / comforter / crib skirt / window valance / diaper stacker / mobile / wall pictures (fabric X3)

The above set does not include the matching crib bumper pads. The Bacati Elephants Bumper Pads can be purchased separately though.

Color: Navy Blue / Grey

Pieces: tie on bumper pads (X4)

If traditional bumper pads are not something you feel comfortable with for your baby’s crib there is an alternative. The BreathableBaby Mesh Crib Liner still stops your baby from sticking their arms and legs through the rails while reducing their risk with a breathable fabric.

Other Items to Consider for Your Nursery from the Bacati Elephants Collection

As part of the same collection as the bedding there is a matching decorative pillow. Since pillows shouldn’t be kept in the crib with the baby, getting this pillow allows you to tie other areas of the room together. For example, you could use this as a lumbar pillow to support your back during feeding times, and it can stay in your glider as decoration in the nursery.

A rug may be something to consider for the nursery whether you have carpet of hardwood floors. A small 2’X3′ rug that matches the collection would look great in front of the crib or changing area.

Personalized Items

While baby is small and up for late night feedings wrapping them in a blanket while you feed them can be comforting. The large crib blanket that comes with most crib sets may be too bulky and/or warm. A smaller matching blanket to keep hung over your glider would be an excellent addition. To match this theme an adorable option would be the Modern Navy Elephant Personalized Name Boy Fleece Blanket. Yes, as it says in the name the blanket is personalized with your little guys name.

Color: Navy Blue (name and color can be personalized)

Every nursery needs a light source that is not as harsh on the eyes at nighttime. There are very dim bulbs available for lamps that will give you enough light to see at night without turning on the overhead light and abruptly causing a wide awake baby. I recommend the Sleepy baby LED Nursery light. As far as a lamp goes to put that bulb in a cute match for this nursery is the Grey and Navy Blue Elephant Table Lamp.

*Note: Can be personalized (price is the same either way)

A big way to announce who the room belongs to is by decorating the wall with a Custom Elephant Name Wall Decal.

Late at night you may (or may not) want to know what time it is during your seemingly endless late night feedings. One thing I always made sure to include in my nursery was a clock. This adorable customizable wall clock would excellently match the elephant theme in your baby boy’s nursery.

One last piece you could include with your theme and customize with their name is a light switch cover (and outlet covers if you desire).

Create Your Own Light Switch Cover

Available at: Zazzle.com ($13.70)

Color: Navy Blue / Grey

*Note: I applied the same print as on the lamp above. If you have a double switch or would like outlet covers too simply select the particular one you want and hit edit. The elephants may need to be adjusted with the edit tool so they are not completely cut out by the switch or socket opening as I placed them accordingly around a single switch opening.

*Note 2: Actual product has a clearer image.

Extras to Make Your Theme Complete

A few small decorative items you may want to consider adding to your nursery to complete the look include:

Light Grey / Navy Blue Vinyl Wall Stickers (Polka Dots)

Available at: Amazon.com ($9.90)

Color: Navy Blue / Grey

Big Elephant Stuffed Animal

Available at: Amazon.com ($29.99)

Color: Grey

Child to Cherish Ceramic Elephant Piggy Bank

Available at: Amazon.com ($17.32)

Color: Light Blue / White Polka Dots

Make Your Baby’s Nursery Their Own

While all of these things are adorable and would make for an awesome nursery I want to say don’t forget the furniture if you don’t already have some. This particular theme would look amazing with white, grey, espresso or black furniture in particular. If you get the hamper form this collection please note its wood finish is the espresso color. If you haven’t gotten furniture yet check out my reviews here:

Dresser in the Nursery

I know not every nursery needs or has the space to contain everything I have put together in this navy blue and grey elephant set. I just hope that whatever you do want to put in your nursery is easy to find and doesn’t get missed while searching through endless websites. There are plenty of other things that would match this theme exceptionally, as well.

My goal was to put together at least one option for each type of element for the nursery and I hope you enjoy. If you like this theme drop a comment below letting me know what you liked best. If you use all or any part of this theme I would love it if you would share a picture of your nursery on our Facebook page to show all the other parents out there looking just how cute it can be (link is in the menu).
