How To Create A Wild And Wonderful Jungle-Inspired Nursery

Designing a jungle-inspired nursery is a fantastic way to create a captivating and adventurous space for your little one. Use vibrant colours, jungle motifs, and cuddly animal friends to set the stage for countless imaginative journeys. We’ve teamed up with ChildHome to help you create a wild and wonderful nursery for your mini explorer, a backdrop for many memorable adventures to come.

Choose a Vibrant Colour Palette

The jungle is bursting with colour, and your nursery should be too! Opt for a palette that includes shades of lush green, warm earth tones, and pops of vibrant jungle-inspired colors like deep blues, fiery oranges, and sunny yellows.

Jungle-themed Wallpaper and Wall Art

Consider using jungle-themed wallpaper or just a feature wall to create a stunning focal point. Look for designs featuring tropical plants, curious creatures, and lush vegetation. Wallpaper can instantly transport your nursery to the heart of the tropical rainforest.

Prefer to paint the walls a neutral colour and create your jungle atmosphere with wall art? Great idea. You’ll find no end of choice when it comes to animal prints or tropical leaf art online that will add personality and charm to any room. And the best bit? You can switch up themes in time when they grow older.

This beautiful rattan shelf will bring instant jungle vibes to any kids’ room. It’s perfect for storing small treasures and can be used as decoration, too.

Stuffed Jungle Friends

No jungle-themed nursery is complete without a menagerie of stuffed animals. We love this pair of giraffes, looking right at home in their new jungle-inspired kids’ room.

Choosing your bed or crib

Choosing a rattan Moses basket, a cot, or house bed can be a fantastic addition to a jungle-inspired nursery or kids’ room.

A house bed is an ideal centrepiece for a jungle-themed nursery. The perfect jungle hideaway, a house bed evokes a sense of adventure and imaginative exploration.

Jungle-inspired cushions and bedding

If you’re creating a jungle-inspired nursery, go for crib sheets, comforters, and baby blankets or duvet sets decked out with jungle animals or leafy prints to nail that jungle vibe.

If it’s older kids you’re catering for, these cute cushions will look the part at the foot of any bed or perhaps to cosy up your nursing chair.

Jungle-Themed Mobile

Hang a jungle-inspired mobile above your baby’s cot featuring swinging monkeys, colourful birds, or playful sloths. Baby mobiles are great entertainment for babies and a delightful touch to any nursery.

Functional Storage

Rattan baskets are a practical solution for storing toys so you can keep your child’s bedroom or nursery tidy and organised. Rattan’s eco-friendly nature fits the jungle theme perfectly, as it’s derived from a renewable resource. These toy baskets are both decorative and functional, making them a must-have for a jungle-inspired kids’ room.

Extra Decor for Your Jungle-themed Nursery

A soft area rug with a leaf or animal print provides a cosy play space and adds an extra layer of jungle-inspired texture to the room. Or if you’re looking for something more hardwearing, opt for a soft jute rug. They’re a great neutral option for kids’ rooms.

Last but not least, no bedroom would be complete without a mirror, and we love this rattan wall mirror for a gorgeous finishing touch.
