The Jungle Theme Nursery

Nursery by  @lust_life_designs

When it comes to decorating a baby room we often think what will my baby enjoy living in? What will make him/her smile every morning? What decor will be relaxing for good sleep and entertaining at the same time? And maybe will have learning elements.

Jungle theme is the best for this! 

Plenty of wall decor  with Jungle trees, leaves and animals that live in the jungle.
Cactuses, palm trees, elephants, zebras, lions.

The colour scheme for the nursery has its own pallet and it has to have green, beige, and brown.  Of course, white as a background and the basic colour. Only white background can highlight any decor.

What can we do if we build the nursery from scratch?

 First of all, the floor. The wooden floor preferably darker colours will be great. Not light as we use in Nordic nurseries.

And the hand woven jute rug of natural beige or white colour. Durable jute fibers can work really well for kids’ rooms and they are allergy-free. Cotton woven rugs are also great and easy to clean and no allergy as well as compared to wool.

Wall decor depends on the budget. Wall paper can be a big investment but it will look fantastic. Even if you use it only partially just on one wall. Cactus wallpaper and jungle forest leaves are great background. Check if the wallpaper is suitable for kids rooms (no allergy components) and get enough with 30% extra for all the cutouts. You can use the left overs to decorate inside the wardrobe or a book shelf.


Even inside the drawers of the baby chest of drawers will look really nice. Use your imagination and decorate the room!

Wall stickers can be cute. Place them above the cot and the changing table to highlight the area.

Even cartoon animals stickers can make the difference.


Such a tiny detail as a light switcher cactus decor can change the mood of any crying baby. You know how they like to press the buttons and here is the cactus! No more tears!

Apart from wall paper there is hanging decor. Now it is really trendy to have Animal Felt Heads in the nursery even if you have a Nordic style and for Jungle Nursery design they are essential. Giraffes, elephants, lions on one wall grouped together make a great decor. Also your child will learn the names of animals from the first days. If they can reach the decor from their cot bed it is beneficial to use tactile senses for learning.

If you have very little budget you can have 2-3 posters with safari animals. Today we have plenty of choice from watercolour to realistic photos on the posters and you can choose what best goes with your theme. We will write a separate post about choosing the poster for the nursery theme. Subscribe for updates. The posters would look better in the wooden frame on the white wall. Remember that Jungle theme is wood and green and make the best of it by adding plants in Handwoven Seagrass Baskets. Eco friendly and natural look makes it a great part of the jungle:)

Big leaves plants like Ficus Lyrata or Sansevieria Laurentii can add the Jungle real feeling and are easy to take care of and clean the dust from leaves what is really important for baby first days in your home.

The cot is up to you. It can be Babyletto white and wooden or even the simple wooden like you can buy from IKEA. It has to be simple and practical. Cot canopy can be brown or green. Adding cushions with Jungle theme prints will make the cot a part of the Jungle:)

We are so happy to find such a beautiful nursery design and share with you! It is absolutely gorgeous in terms of colour and accents! 

You see? It is never enough for rainbows and unicorns! And a small vintage decor can change everything.

This nursery is designed by a mom Kelly Telfeyan. She is sharing her tips with us and where she bought the items to decorate the space for her daughter.

In fact, Kelly Telfeyan is an attorney and interior design is her passionate hobby. Let’s see what she tells about the nursery and how she created it.




Kelly Telfeyan

 I designed the nursery for our adopted daughter, Abigail Piper (seen in the photo above).  My intent was to create a nursery space that was happy, cheerful, and unique.  I did that by applying gold wall decals to create a feature wall, using modern art pieces from local artists, carefully selecting bookshelves and wall decor, and infusing a lot of unicorns and rainbows.  I also love the Jenny Lind coral crib and the coordinating area rug!!  

The teal piece under the mirror is vintage 1960s.  I painted it because the wood varnish was damaged…otherwise I would never paint good, solid wood!!  

 I think the space should grow with my daughter for years to come!!  It is one of the happiest spaces in our house!!  I think people have started to move too much toward neutrals in nurseries, but no one should be afraid to use color!!  I also went off the beaten path by placing the crib in the middle of the room under a chandelier!!

We are happy to share a great idea for Girl’s Nursery from Vanessa Antonelli

Before I begin a client’s design, I have an internal meeting with my team. To get a good visual, picture it like a game show. We’re all excited. Ideas are flowing. Some of us stand. Some sit.

You have an idea? Shout it out! It’s a bit of chaos, but in a really creative and fun environment. Most of the time you can hear me shouting things out like “I want a neon basketball hoop or how about a surf board shelf”.

Each time they stop and look at me and say, “Vanessa, that’s not a thing.” Ok fun police, but how about we make it a thing? And that’s exactly how most of this nursery came to be.

When my client purchased the home, they moved the walls to create one L shaped room. The shape of the space made it feel like two separate rooms, so it was my job to make it flow well and look like one beautifully designed space.

The walls were inspired by a graphic design image I found on a notebook that belonged to my own toddler daughter in the exact color. I went back and forth between hand painting it and having a custom wallpaper created.

In the end a painter was hired to re-create it on-site using the inspo image.There are so many special and sweet spots in the space too. The custom pink feather sconces that match the room’s overhead light are a spectacular standout, as well as the custom pink tree-like bookcase.

The beautiful crib has linen upholstered side panels with modern lines. There are several spaces throughout the nursery where acrylic elements appear. In order to add just a touch more, I changed the included crib legs to acrylic ones. I love making small changes to things in order to customize it for the client.

The mix of textures like the gorgeous wood finish on the custom Romina Furniture dresser, the fur ottoman and nook cushion, the crystal beaded wallpaper and the patterns utilized throughout all work so well together.

While designing I instantly realized that there was going to be a lot of pink! I knew I needed to tone that down a little and I wanted to do it with the artwork. When I was traveling with my family, I saw a painting in a restaurant that had an acrylic frame on it and a neon light.

 I was so inspired by it. I knew that something in that vein with a different design and bright colors would best balance the pink sweetness of the room and give it a little sass. After all, every princess can also be a rockstar?
