Animals are great themes for nurseries and kid’s rooms. It can be gender neutral without ever being “boring”, and at the end of the day, what child doesn’t at one point go through the whole “animal craze”? My one year old is currently obsessed with farm animals and cuddling the neighbour’s dog and cat every chance that she gets.
The best thing about the updated, modern wildlife themed rooms is that they are playful, yet still maintain an overall sophisticated look. No cheesy caricatures here. Take a look below at a few of our favourite rooms from around the web that seamlessly incorporate wildlife motifs.
The Prints- It may be cute as seen on Project Nursery, but not up for painting a giant juggle mural up on that wall? We love the idea of grouping a set of prints together, or even having one blown up and framed for maximum impact.
-The Fur Babies- Most parents will tell you that they cannot, and will not fit, another stuffed animal into their home, but a few, well placed plushies can make for wonderful children’s room decor.
^Project Nursery- That hippo in the corner, and the zebra rug? <3
-Taxidermy- Not everyone appreciates hunting as a hobbie. But when it comes to what we think of the faux taxidermy in nursery trend, you’ll find no resistance here!
^Design Sponge- Those two taxidermy heads and elephant woven basket are just the right touches to incorporate that safari theme without going overboard.
^Vogue France- That’s right. Even Vogue, the iconic magazine, approves of the animal head accessory in a kid’s bedroom.
^The Boo and the Boy- We love that this room incorporates wild animals with all things girly, like the princess dress and doll house.
^Donmino- Safari animal heads, oversized bear, tassel garland and that colourful rug? An unexpected combination that makes for an eclectic and adorable room!
