Cribspiration: 5 Nursery Finds For Your Little Monkey

A jungle-themed nursery is a popular choice for a baby boy, but now we’ve taken this traditional motif and given it a modern spin! This monkey nursery inspiration is sophisticated enough to take your little guy into his toddler years and beyond.Safari inspired nursery decor for a baby boy | Baby Aspen

1. Safari Bedding

Every stylish nursery starts with a crib and coordinating bedding to inspire the rest of the room. This “Savanna” Collection is suited for the king of the jungle (or the king of this nursery)!

2. A Splash of Color

You can quickly transform a blank space with a bold accent wall. For this room, we’re not monkeying around! Go for the iconic banana leaf wallpaper, originally featured in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Decorating tip: If you’re not ready to commit to an accent wall, you can get this look with these great tropical curtains!

 3. A Soft Place to Play

A soft rug at the center of the nursery makes the space suitable for playtime, too. We love the subtle lines and crisp navy border of this neutral area rug.

4. A Rope Reading Light

Let your little one’s imagination go wild when you read jungle adventures under the glow of a rustic rope lamp. A cozy reading nook is a must-have for any nursery, whether you invest in an elaborate glider or pile pillows on the floor.
