Cuddly jungle animals are one way to go for a toddler's room. A subtle plaid pattern painted on the lower half of the walls leads to a soft green "field" where a menagerie of painted animals roam beneath a canopy of leafy branches.
A daybed stands in the corner, reminding parents and child that the days of crib-sleeping are coming to an end. But the play area in the center of the room will be useful long after the crib is gone. A chunky rug anchors the space and is soft on the hands, knees, feet, and eyes.
Canvas-lined baskets are just the right fit for holding out-of-season clothes, extra blankets, or toys. Just slide them under the bed.
Choose bedding that will grow with your little one. This basic blue bedding is stylish and timeless. Colorful pillows are an easy and inexpensive way to create a personalized look. Plus, no jungle room would be complete without a herd of cuddly stuffed animals.
The window treatments here are simple and light: a sheer, short curtain near the crib and a simple valance over the changing table, letting the sun shine in on all the creatures resting in the room, both human and otherwise.
Friendly-faced animals create a gentle jungle animal theme.
More animals parade around the patterned rug that includes all of the room's colors.
Bright orangey-red details keep the color scheme from being too pastel and washed out, and will help transition the room to toddlerhood and beyond.
Cute baskets and labeled boxes rest on white shelves, safely holding keepsakes out of toddler's reach. A custom-fit cabinet is the perfect height for a baby's changing table or for displaying favorite pictures and mementos.
Tidy shoes and folded clothes are kept neat in this dresser cabinet.
Hand-painted elephant knobs spruce up plain, white closet doors and add a playful touch of whimsy.
Use a coloring book as inspiration for easy, custom artwork. A handwritten lyric or message is a personal touch.
