How to create a Safari themed kids bedroom or baby nursery

When you have a little adventurer on your hands, it's only natural they want to explore and bring the outside into their little space. If you're looking for ideas on how to create a safari-themed bedroom or nursery for your child, you're in the right place!

Here are some tips on how to bring the wild into your little one's space.


Bringing in the right colours
When it comes to creating a safari-themed room, it's all about earthy tones, such as browns, greens, and oranges. These colors will help create a natural and calming environment for your little one. Consider incorporating prints of animals or jungle landscapes, such as a wallpaper with a jungle scene or bedding with animal prints. These can add pops of color and texture to the room, while also contributing to the overall theme.


Use Animal Prints
A lot of people freak and think animal print is too bold and loud for a kid's bedroom, but let me tell you... animal prints are a must-have in any safari-themed room.
They can be incorporated in a variety of ways, such as on bedding, curtains, or rugs. The trick is to use the prints sparingly, without going too overboard. Consider using zebra or leopard prints to add a touch of wildness to the space. 

Bring the outside in 
Bringing the outdoors inside is key to creating a safari-themed space. Adding natural materials, such as bamboo, rattan, and jute, will add a touch of nature to the room. Using a bamboo or rattan crib, or adding a jute rug to the floor is a super modern and on trend way to add a natural feel to the room. These materials will add texture and warmth to the space while making it homely.

Get your cuddle on!
Soft furnishings are important in any bedroom or nursery, but they are especially important in a safari-themed space. Using soft toys in the form of animals, animal print blankets, or even a soft animal print pillow will give your little one plenty of spaces to cuddle up and feel cozy. This not only adds to the theme, but ensures the space creates a calming environment for sleep times.

Wall decor
Wall decor is a great way to add some personality to the room and really give it your little one's personal touch. Consider using wall decals of animals or jungle landscapes to add a touch of wildness to the walls.

You can hang pictures of your little one's favourite animals on the walls. If your child is old enough, letting them choose the artwork will make them feel like they have more of a connection to the space.


Adding these special touches to the walls also gives them something to look at when playing in their room, and even a comfort at night when going to sleep.

    I hope these tips have given you inspiration for your little adventurer's Safari themed bedroom or nursery.
