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 Wooden baby gym, Handwoven Seagrass Baskets for toys, large Giraffe toys and any accessory that can go with the theme and you are done!
