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.

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.

2. A Bright Idea

A lampshade is a great way to add a pop of color to the room. Create a cozy reading nook with a side table and lamp you can easily reach from a rocking chair. You’ll be using this spot for daily story time and snuggles before bed.

6. Ready, Set, Play!

A big, soft rug makes a perfect playscape for baby. Consider a monochromatic rug for a room with lots of color, but you can still pick a bright color and textured pattern to create a whimsical feel. For a perfect color pairing, we recommend purchasing the bedding and rug from the same collection.
