    A nice rug is a superb idea for a nursery as babies tend to spend a lot of time on the floor. This lovely rug is made from 100% wool and is hand-tufted for durability. Your little one will enjoy tummy time on the playmat far more when they can look at these cute animal faces.

    An original idea for a clock is this wooden monkey wallhanging – both functional and decorative. All he needs is a battery popped into his back. Though they may be a baby, an analog clock is a great teaching tool for kids as they grow – and it also helps mum and dad when bedtime seems to be dragging on.

  15. Jared The 50″ Giraffe

    Once you set eyes on Jared, it’s hard to say no. Standing at a whopping 50″, Jared the Giraffe is perfectly weighted and balanced to stand without falling over. He’s handmade with soft furry plush and features life-like details, wire-frame legs, and a long adjustable neck made for hugs.

    This handmade rattan elephant head sure beats taxidermy. A stunning piece of craft, it takes a full day’s work to finish one head, and they’re usually made to order. If you’re seeking a giraffe, rhino, or lion, they also make those!

    Plush animals make fantastic nursery room decor – especially when you’re working with a safari jungle theme! Pick up a few of these orangutans and hang them around curtains, off hooks, on teepee poles, or on any “jungle vines” you may have created. Or, here are some sweet hanging sloths.

  29. Blackout Curtains

    These curtains feature a strong print that will quickly transform your jungle room – as with the mural. Of course, you could go with cute baby animals, but these very realistic curtains will last your child for many years to come (they’d also look epic in a living room!) They’re also blackout curtains, probably the most essential feature for babies and small children.

  31. Wooden Height Chart 
  32. jungle-nursery-decor-height-chart

    This rustic wooden height chart is a simple but original idea, and it’s durable and easy to write on. It also comes with adhesive strips and directions so you can have it installed in a snap. Handcrafted in the US, it’s a lovely minimalist touch for a nursery that may already have a lot of color going on.

  33. Rope Storage Basket 
  34. jungle-nursery-decor-rope-baskets

    These cute giraffe cotton rope baskets are a wonderfully functional piece. I own similar rope baskets and use one to hold a stash of diapers and another to keep creams, ointments, and baby wipes at the changing station area.

  35. Elephant Bookcase

    This Crate&Kids elephant bookshelf is a highly creative and unique piece of furniture. It doesn’t come cheap, but it’s pretty awesome. With various cubby shapes and sizes, there’s plenty of space to hold toys, books, and decor – including down the length of the 3D trunk.

    One way you could decorate the ceiling of your baby’s nursery is with these simple but vibrant paper “animal hide” lanterns. With 12 to play with, there are multiple ways you could use them, and anything that “lowers” the ceiling creates a cozier space.

  39. Wall Decals 
  40. jungle-nursery-decor-wall-decals

    If wallpaper feels like too much work for your nursery wall decor, you can still make an impact with these cute watercolor decals. The jungle animals are sensory to the touch because of the ultra-thick polyester fabric (not vinyl), and the ink is eco-friendly and non-toxic.

  41. Lion Pillow
  42. jungle-nursery-decor-lion-pillow

    This little lion king sits at a decent 18-inches high with a sweet babyface. He’s a perfect piece of jungle nursery decor– whether on a bed, bookshelf, or chair. Try to find a few other stuffed safari animals with which you can group him.

  43. Handpainted Nursery Wall Art 
  44. jungle-nursery-decor-jungle-print-3

  45. Faux Banana Leaf Plant
  46. jungle-nursery-decor-plant

    If you seek more jungle in your “jungle,” artificial plants and ceiling vines can be of great assistance – especially if you’re dealing with a dark room, a not-so-green thumb, or just the fact that some plants can be toxic. This 5-foot banana leaf plant is made of silk and can be blocked off by furniture once your child starts walking.

  47. Giraffe Wicker Basket
  48. jungle-nursery-decor-giraffe-wicker

    Welcome to the jungle, indeed! This giant wicker boho giraffe is excellent for storing all sorts of baby room essentials – baby blankets, diapers, stuffed animals. But he’s also an essential piece of decor in his own right. 

  49. Large Crocodile Plush
  50. jungle-nursery-decor-crocodile

    Here’s another beautiful stuffed animal for home decor magic. This giant crocodile will feel right at home, lying across a rug, a bed, a chair, or your nursery crib (when the baby’s not in there). He’s a maximum impact asset for any jungle theme.
