Lions, leopards, and zebras….and elephants… oh, my! Oh wait, that’s not how it goes. Oh well - the jungle themed nursery has been around, well, as long as there’s been little boys and jungle animals! But, this time, it’s with a modern and simple twist. We’ve taken the popular boy jungle nursery design theme (hint: it’s great for a gender neutral room too) and cleaned it up a little. We can’t wait to see what you think…
Design Rule: Not everything has to match! When you are picking out your furniture, mix and match those colors. I love how this crib’s vintage gray tones coordinate with the dark contrast of the black dresser. The dresser’s brass accents ties in with the colors of the animals (keeping our zebras and cheetahs neutral in black and white against those cool green palms and trees) and the clean white walls let all the decor shine.
All about the accents: More jute rugs, please! Rugs don’t always have to cover large areas, sometimes a perfectly placed accent rug add’s dimension to the room, and helps bring the design away from the walls. And crib sheets are a great way to add in a certain theme or color. We love how the safari jungle crib sheet coordinates with the jungle themed changing pad cover in black, white, and green. And the zebra wall decor coordinates with the zebra crib bedding! Sourcing all these cute ideas doesn't have to be a safari adventure! Just bring in a few jungle nursery themed decor pieces and you're done!
And don’t pretend like you didn’t see those tassels. I mean, I want that blanket in MY room! It’s the perfect size to throw over a glider, or use to play on the floor. Or to put in my own house… hmmmmm…. where was that link again…. (oh, here it is).
What are your favorite jungle animals? I think this theme allows so many options for personalization. You can pick a few of your favorite furry (or feathery) friends and just run with it. With all these great options to download digital files (like our baby zebra printable) or these adorable hand painted friends from LandofNod.com, a quick frame - or clip - is a great way to decorate a collage wall, or add any size art to your room design. There are just so many jungle nursery decorating ideas to take this theme in a direction that suits your style!
All great nursery designs start with a blank slate. Make this jungle themed room your own! You'll be spending a lot of time in there, we promise. We love the faux animal heads in this adorable jungle nursery, and how cute would it be if it had our safari jungle crib bedding in it too! Adding just the right pop of color!
