You may have to shop around for one or two that may have gone out of stock or are no longer shipping but this look is totally possible on a budget.

What colors suit a safari nursery?

There are a few different color schemes that work well for a safari nursery. The most popular is probably a green and yellow scheme, which mimics the colors of the Serengeti.

You could also go with a more muted palette of tan, cream, and light green; or a brighter scheme of orange, red, and yellow.

Safari animals are often very colorful, so feel free to have fun with your color choices!

Just make sure that the overall effect is pleasing and calming, as nurseries should be peaceful places for babies to sleep and play.

White works as well with safari nursery decor

Plain walls like cream or white are a great starting point and saves a lot of time painting and buying new paint.

Consider purchasing murals or decals from a larger store. With a careful hand and a little time, you can create your jungle theme very inexpensively.

Decal for safari nursery

Another way to save money when decorating a safari nursery is to use items you already have. If you have any stuffed animals that look like they could be Safari animals, put them out on display! Shop the Look

You can also frame Safari art or posters or even make your own Safari mobile to hang above the crib.

Plenty of storage is a must.

A new baby needs plenty of spaces to store items like clothes, toys, and changing accessories like diapers, creams, etc.

Young families sometimes don’t have the budget to purchase new storage like wardrobes.

If you need budget storage, visit Ikea for a freestanding bookshelf and then go to your local Dollar Shop and buy storage baskets. It will give you so much room, and you can even label each basket.

Baskets for storage

Organize your basket, so the toys are at the bottom, clothes in the middle, and creams and other items are on the top shelf. Shop the Look

Curtains or blinds

Dress your windows with a little thought. Blinds are good for a nursery but be aware of any hanging loose string pulls or cords.

There have been so many accidents with these types of blinds it may be best to avoid them completely. Blinds with a wooden pull and no strings are probably your best option.

Curtains are ideal for a nursery. Not only do they soften the room, but they can help to add texture.

These safari curtains are a great choice. Shop the Look.
