Bring some excitement to a child’s room by transforming it into a jungle theme. Jungle animals and plants are bright and colorful for an fun space. The unisex theme is appropriate for either a boy or a girl. You can even make a jungle theme nursery for your little newborn monkey. Jungle themed rooms don’t have to be expensive when you put some planning into what you want accomplished in the space.
Add jungle theme paint colors to the walls to brighten the room. Sky blue is a good all over color for the walls if you want only one color of paint. Use jungle green, or Kelly green, on the lower two-thirds of the wall at the chair rail point for a more dramatic jungle effect. Add painted palm trees and vines if you know someone with artistic painting skills. You can also buy wall decals in a jungle theme to add monkeys, trees and vines without having to paint them.
Buy custom furniture in the shape of jungle animals or palm trees to continue with the theme. A lower cost option is to purchase plain children’s furniture and paint it in the jungle colors of green, yellow and blue. Add small jungle decals to the backs and seats of the chairs and the top of a small table. Paint the bed headboard in the same jungle colors and add some decals or paint jungle images. Apply a layer of polyurethane to protect the surface and decals for years of enjoyment. Don’t forget that a jungle theme lamp and figurines on shelves pulls the room together. You can make a lampshade for an existing lamp using jungle theme fabric.
Purchase or sew a jungle print bedspread and pillow covers. Make large floor pillows with the same fabric used for the bedspread, or purchase a jungle print sheet set and use that to make the pillows. Jungle animal shaped pillows are a fun accent to add to the bed, or on a small sitting chair in the room.
Add as little or as much of a jungle theme to the room as your budget allows. This theme is fun to explore and the final decorating project will bring joy to your child.
