Baby Wren's parents spent a majority of their preparenting days exploring the world, so when it came time to settle down and create a permanent space for their new arrival, they wanted the room to reflect their wanderlust. "My husband and I love traveling, maps, and National Geographic," says Wren's mom, photographer Heather Cook Elliott. "We thought it would be great to design a room for our new little traveler using the magazine as the inspiration."
Heather also had to consider the unusual layout of her home: "an old warehouse with cream city brick and half-height walls." "Our baby's room is also part of the living space in a way that most nurseries aren't, so we wanted the room to be adult and modern," she says. The result is a space that highlights the couple's traveling spirit with photos Heather took while on a safari in Tanzania, an awesome and affordable globe mobile, and lots of National Geographic yellow, along with modern elements (check out the white leather rocker!) that come together to create one gorgeous, global nursery.
