Jungle themed nursery examples with leafy background

The clock is ticking - your baby is arriving in just a few weeks and how to decorate the nursery is still only an idea in your head. We’ve all been there, and we know that designing a nursery can be daunting. As fun as it sounds and as rewarding as the final result can be, deciding on the colours of the walls, or the type of furniture you want can be tricky.

Themed nurseries are a great way to add a playful touch to a room, and a jungle theme is one at the top of our list. Apart from being able to include a range of animal-themed decorations and toys that little ones adore, a jungle theme also allows you to keep the room gender-neutral.
