Nursery Safari Decor

A tried and true favourite, the safari theme nursery is a great gender neutral option that inspires adventure and wonder. A room can be transformed from basic beginnings with a few pieces of carefully selected nursery safari decor. 

This interior design theme can be styled a couple of different ways. It can be neutral; inspired by sun bleached dessert safari vibes or richly decadent with deep greens and pops of vibrant colour representing the colours of the jungle. Whichever you choose, I hope this article helps you get your safari nursery sorted!

Nuetral Nursery Safari Decor

If you’re going the more subtle safari nursery with neutral colours here are a few decor ideas: 

Safari Animal Drawer Handles

I love an Ikea hack or re-purposing furniture! By buying a second-hand set of drawers, giving it a coat of paint and adding some gorgeous little safari animal handles you have created a one-of-a-kind piece perfect for adding a little bit of quirk to your nursery!

Wicker Light Shade

Mix up the textures and materials in the room by selecting a wicker or straw light shade. This particular design has a hand woven look which adds to the traditional safari interior design vibe.

Safari Animal Wall Prints

Adding art is a quick way to transform an otherwise boring and basic nursery to something really special. Go for a substantial size, if the prints are small they tend to feel cheap and go unnoticed. 

If you’re styling a nursery on a budget, check out Etsy where you can purchase digital prints. Just download the file and take it to a printing store to have it printed at the size you want and frame yourself or staple to a canvas.

Faux Leather Nursing Chair

What can be more safari than leather, hides and faux fur? Having a leather (or pleather) nursing chair is a great option as they are easy to clean…. Sorry for the reality check but we all know there will be spew and poo in our beautifully designed nurseries !

Bright/ Bold Nursery Safari Decor

If you’re thinking of a more jungle inspired safari nursery then here are some bold decor ideas; 

Safari Jungle Wall Mural

Leafy jungle inspired wall mural : high impact and easy to apply, this peel and stick wall art will instantly transform the nursery. 

Create Your Own Jungle with Plants!

Plush up the space with plants, plants add an instant sense of calm to a space and the bigger the better I think ! If the thought of ANOTHER living thing to take care of is just too much go artificial. Some easy care indoor plants are devilled ivy, fiddle leaf figs and elephant ears. These all grow great in pots and need minimal care once they are in a spot with the right amount of light. 

Palm Leaf Ceiling Fan

These palm leaf style fans bring about feeling of being in the heat, humidity and tropics. They add a real African safari vibe. The brass fan motor is sold separately with the option of choosing bamboo or palm style blades. 

Safari Crib Canopy

A crib canopy in earthy orange will make a fun indoor tent or reading nook for kiddo as they get older. To keep the feel authentic look for good quality natural fabric rather than synthetic fibres. Natural materials like a fine cotton or linen weave will drape nicer and allow better air flow than synthetics.
