Creating a Wild Animal Nursery Decor
Creating a Wild Nursery Décor
When you are looking for a nursery decor that has a life all its own, consider going wild: A wild decor complete with jungle animals and murals on the wall.
A wild animal jungle theme is perfect for the parents who do not know if their soon-to-be bundle of joy is a boy or girl.It can be as realistic or as whimsical as you wish, but make sure that it has a touch of wild attitude to make it unique.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
There is no better way to immerse your nursery in the jungle than to paint a wall mural depicting one.Choose one large wall, or do a mural on all of the walls, for a clever and creative look.You can use pictures of jungle wall murals as inspiration as a template if necessary. Try projecting the outline of the jungle creatures on the wall and then tracing them lightly with a pencil.You can also use wall stickers or decals to create the look if painting is not an option.Some parents-to-be, especially those who are renting their home or who have little faith in their artistic ability, prefer to paint the wall a soft green and add wall decals instead of painting a mural.
Realistic vs. Whimsical
You may not be scared of a realistic jaguar sitting in the tree, but as your infant grows to be a toddler, that jaguar may be the cause of many bad dreams.Consider adding colorful, yet non-threatening animals, to the room’s decor.Brilliant parrots and colorful butterflies are excellent options.Monkeys and Three-Toed Sloths are also fun, non-threatening animals that can make an appearance in the wild nursery.Whimsical animals are also an option.Instead of the realistic depictions, choose to make your jungle more cartoon-style and friendly.Cute and cuddly wild animals are just as effective in a jungle theme as are their more realistic and slightly scary counterparts.
You will find that stuffed animals tend to accumulate at an alarming rate once the announcement of baby’s impending arrival is made.Try to focus the gifts by telling everyone that the nursery theme will be one a jungle.Use the dozens of monkey stuffed animals that you get to hang from the ceiling and add character to the walls.Jungle theme animals can be placed on shelves, on bookcases, and in the soft play area in the nursery.By focusing the gifts to be more jungle animal oriented, you will have a better chance of being able to use all of the stuffed animals that come into the house.
Creating a wild nursery decor is a great, fun way to make your newborn’s nursery unique and stylish.By identifying a nursery theme early on in your pregnancy, you can ensure that you have plenty of time to decorate and by the time your baby arrives, the jungle will be ready for his or her arrival.
