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, 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. Plus, a jungle theme also has the benefit of giving a relaxing quality, with earthy browns, greens and yellows helping to create a warm aura (which is perfect for bedtime).

So, if you’re interested in creating the perfect jungle room for your little explorer, take a look at our list of the best items for a jungle-inspired nursery.
