21 SAFARI NURSERY IDEAS

Safari-themed wall murals.

When decorating a safari-themed nursery, murals can add a sense of adventure and wonder. From lush jungle scenes to playful animal prints, there are a variety of safari-themed mural options to choose from. A safari mural can be a great way to create a focal point in the room and set the tone for the rest of the decor. Whether you choose a colorful mural or a more subtle and naturalistic one, a safari mural can inspire your little one's imagination and sense of adventure. And the best part? A mural can be a relatively easy and affordable idea to transform a nursery into a wild and wonderful oasis.

Safari Nursery Wallpaper 

Decorating a playful and beautiful safari-inspired nursery can be made easy with safari wallpaper designs. You can opt for all-over safari wallpaper or use it as an accent wall to create a unique and dynamic space. The key is to select a wallpaper design that complements the baby's room.

Animal Prints  

Animal prints bring playfulness and whimsy to a safari-themed nursery. From leopard spots to zebra stripes, there are a variety of animal prints to choose from, each with its unique character and charm. Animal print accents can be incorporated into nursery decor in countless ways, from bedding and curtains to pillows and wall art. Go bold with a statement animal print wallpaper, or keep it subtle with a few animal print accents scattered throughout the room.

Jungle-Inspired Wall Hangings

Jungle-inspired wall hangings can be a great way to bring the lush greenery and exotic beauty of the jungle into a safari-themed nursery. Jungle-inspired wall hangings such as woven tapestries add texture, color, and visual interest to the nursery decor while creating a sense of depth and dimensionality.

Bold and Colorful Accent Walls

An accent wall is an easy and affordable way to add personality to a safari nursery. Painting in bold, adventurous colors such as greens, oranges, and browns can inject energy and style into a safari-themed nursery. Take a more classic route with a simple solid color, painting a bold accent wall to create a focal point in the room and set the stage for the rest of the decor.

Natural Wood and Earthy Tones

Incorporating natural wood and earthy tones can be a great way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in a safari-themed nursery. From wooden cribs and dressers to woven baskets and rugs made from natural fibers, there are many ways to incorporate these elements into the decor. Natural wood furniture can add warmth and texture to the space, while earthy tones like greens, browns, and beiges can create a sense of calm and tranquility.

Tribal-Inspired Decorative Elements

Incorporating tribal-inspired decorative elements can add a sense of cultural richness and depth to a safari-themed nursery. From woven baskets and textiles to carved wooden figurines and masks, tribal-inspired decor items can work well in a nursery design.

Safari-Inspired Lighting and Lamps

Adding safari-inspired lighting and lamps can add a sense of adventure and whimsy to a safari-themed nursery. You can also incorporate lighting that mimics the warm glow of a sunset or the soft light of a campfire to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Adding dimmer switches can also be a great way to adjust the lighting to fit your little one's needs, whether for quiet-time or playtime.

Safari-Themed Storage 

Safari-themed storage solutions come in many shapes and sizes and can help elevate your nursery. From wall-mounted shelves to cute animal-shaped cubbies and animal-inspired storage bins, they provide practical storage solutions to help keep everything organized and tidy.

Safari-Inspired accessories and accents

Safari-inspired nursery accessories and accent pieces can give a playful and adventurous vibe. Add a touch of whimsy by incorporating animal-shaped pillows, plush toys, or safari-themed mobiles above the crib. Using natural materials like bamboo or rattan can add a sense of authenticity to the decor while also feeling playful. Adding a vintage safari trunk or suitcase as a decorative piece can also be a great way to add a sense of history and adventure to the room. Whether it's a roaring lion, a gentle giraffe, or a majestic elephant, safari-inspired elements can add a touch of magic to your baby's nursery, making it a space that both you and your little one will cherish.

Animals take center stage when you’re designing a safari-themed nursery. Set baby up to take a sunny adventure through the jungle with some lovable furry friends every day.

When looking for safari nursery décor, you can get really cute and playful here with silly accents (like a swinging monkey clock) and bright colors (oranges, greens, and yellows). But blacks, whites, and grays also add nice touches to a neutral room, too. 

Don’t be shy about taking the jungle look as far as you want to. Simply add a few accents, like a rug or wall art, or go all the way with lively wall decals, window treatments, and attention-grabbing stuffed animals . Here’s what will take your safari nursery over the top.

Why trust us?

He’s cute and he’s here to hang! This monkey clock is the perfect addition to dress up a wall of the nursery. Shaped like a monkey swinging on a tree branch, he looks as if he’s ready for some serious playtime. The clock is lightweight and easy to hang up, plus requires just one battery to operate.  

  • Weight: 1.76 pounds
  • Dimensions: 16 x 11.5 x 1.76 inches

Let's Make Baby Crib Mobile

The minimalist wind chime-style mobile will add a lot of charm to baby’s room. Secure the wooden top to a mobile hanger or ceiling and watch the handmade stars, pom poms, and cutest knitted elephant you ever did see dance around above the crib. Neutral gray and white go with any color scheme. Parents love the little bells in the mobile that give off a gentle, pleasing jingle sound that little ones love.

  • Weight: 6.7 ounces
  • Dimensions: 6.18 x 6.18 x 1.93 inches

The changing pad cover says it all — your baby is your heart. The gray cover features a white elephant blowing little floating hearts all the way up to the top. A 100 percent polyester material is surprisingly soft, and you can toss it in the wash for easy cleanup. Parents love how the plush fabric seems to soothe baby during diaper changes.

  • Dimensions: 16 x 32 inches

Handcrafted in India, this 100 percent wool rug will feel good under little one’s toes — and it’ll look great, too. All playfully jumping around, the lion, leopard, tiger, and cheetah add a colorful, dynamic pop to any nursery. Plus, you’ve got the cool circular rug — 5-feet in diameter — that’s big enough to make a focal point in the room.  

  • Dimensions: 5-foot diameter

Melissa & Doug Lifelike 3-Foot Plush Standing Baby Giraffe Stuffed Animal

Talk about a showstopper. The giant giraffe has been a classic gift for babies (yes, really) for years. And for good reason: He’s cute, he’s cuddly, and he’s pretty big. Three feet tall to be exact. But with those big eyes, long eyelashes, and little tufts on his head, baby will be happy he’s in her corner.

  • Weight: 3.6 pounds
  • Dimensions: 33.05 x 22.45 x 11.8 inches
  • Age/weight limit: Recommended for ages 4 and up. Make sure to supervise babies during play. 

Sammy & Lou Crib Bedding Set – Jungle Pals

This bedding set comes with four pieces: a quit, crib skirt, fitted crib sheet, and stuffed toy elephant. Both the crib skirt and quilt are designed with cute and colorful baby jungle animals, including a giraffe, lion, elephant, and alligator. The gender-neutral pastels give a safari themed nursery a softer look. Parents love how nice the quilt feels, noting that it’s something baby will love for a long time. 

  • Dimensions: 28 x 52 inches (crib sheet), 35 x 45 inches (quilt), crib skirt has 14-inch drop
  • Age/weight limit: Infants should not sleep with quilts or toys   

Oopsy Daisy Eric Carle's Elephant Mother Canvas Wall Art

An Eric Carle illustration of a mama and baby elephant is sure to tug at your heart strings. The greens, blues, and grays in this picture add a touch of color to any room. It’s also produced with your little one in mind — the ink used is GREENGUARD Gold certified, too. Available in two sizes that are perfectly fitting above a crib, changing station, or bookshelf. 

  • Weight: 1 or 1.75 lbs
  • Dimensions: 18 x 14 x 1.5 inches or 24 x 18 x 1.5 inches

Just peel and stick and you’re good to go. These safari-themed decals are bright and colorful and feature a flock of fun animals, from monkeys to lions, birds, monkeys, and zebras. Easily place them around the top or middle of any room as a border, or make a silly scene on a wall. The package comes with 47 decals that can be removed and stuck again, no problem. 

  • Decals arrange in size from 1.3 x 1.4 to 9.3 x 12.5 inches

Lambs & Ivy Me & Mama White/Gray Elephant Nursery Lamp

Mommy and me. A gray mom and baby elephant lovingly look at each other at the base of this small lamp. Complementing the base is a shade that’s white with a black zig-zag design. Parents point out that though this is small, it emits just the right amount of light you want for middle-of-the-night wake-ups. Bonus: It comes with an energy-efficient light bulb, too.

  • Weight: 2.15 pounds
  • Dimensions: 7 x 7 x 13.75 inches

These little animals are ready to steal your heart with this set of four ready-to-hang prints. The adorable faces and fun colors bring a happy vibe into the room. Ready to hang, these are also lightweight, so they’re easy to get up onto a wall. 

  • Weight: 1.2 pounds
  • Dimensions: 14.06 x 2.0 x 11.13 inches (overall); 11 x 11 inches each

This window valance completes the safari theme in the nursery. Friendly monkeys, snakes, lions, hippos, and giraffes are all happily hanging out on the white fabric. The valance is super easy to push through a window rod for effortless install. It’s machine washable, so you can also keep it looking like new for a long time.  

  • Dimensions: 54 x 15 inches (requires a 0.75-inch rod pocket diameter)

Bring the outside in with this set of three large, leaf-printed storage baskets. Stash baby blankets, toys, books, or diaper supplies in these sturdy linen bins. Each bin is also outfitted with two natural rope handles for easy pick-up. Parents say that they hold up so well, you can use them through multiple kids. 

  • Weight: 1.8 pounds
  • Dimensions: 16.3 x 12.2 x 4 inches

Gang’s all here! A zebra, bunny, giraffe, and lion cartoon wall decals keep careful watch over baby. The decal comes as one large vinyl for you to position, peel, and stick. (Some parents cut these apart for alternate options for positioning and to make application easier.) Overall, happy parents say these are worth the little extra effort required to install.  

  • Dimensions: 17 x 44 inches (each decal is 8 inches to 15 inches in length)

Time for lots of snuggles on this tummy time play mat. Shaped like a giraffe, it’s the perfect size for baby to lay down on and reach for the animal’s ears or horns. You can move this around the room or into the next room. It’s soft, cuddly, and incredibly cute. Easy to wipe clean, too, which is essential.

  • Weight: 1.6 pounds
  • Dimensions: 3.5 x 24 x 35 inches

How to Create a Safari Themed Nursery for Your Little One

Sharing is caring!

NURSERY ROOM DECOR: Safari Themed Nursery Room

When it comes to designing your child’s nursery, there are endless possibilities! If you’re looking for a fun safari-themed nursery then, here are some ideas to get you started. Find some safari nursery decor to bring your nursery to life.

Are you as excited as I am?

Why Create a Safari Theme Nursery?

If you love safari animals and the idea of a safari nursery, it can be a great theme because safari animals are somewhat gender-neutral.

Just picture a room with grey elephants, monkeys, lions, and giraffes. Not to mention all of the vibrant colors that come with a safari theme. So, whether you’re having a boy or girl, safari animals can be a great choice for your nursery.

How to Create a Safari Nursery Theme

There are many different ways to create a safari nursery. You can use animal prints, safari colors, and safari décor to get the look you want.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Safari Nursery Walls

For the walls, consider using a safari wallpaper border or mural. You could also paint an animal scene on one or more of the walls. For example, you might want to have safari wallpaper on three walls and a large mural or decal as a feature wall.

Wall decals depicting safari animals and trees would create a great safari-themed room. You could also use stickers of safari animals or trees.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try a stencil of a safari animal or scene on one of the walls. That would be great. However, if you want something already designed there are plenty of  nursery room  wall stickers out there to choose from.

Safari Themed Nursery Furniture

When it comes to furniture, you can go with safari-themed pieces and safari nursery decor or simply add some safari touches to otherwise normal furniture.

Exploring nature and animal wall arts is another creative way to create a safari theme. Versatile options like colorful lion wall arts capture a lot about the animal kingdom to give a lift to the safari–theme room. They also add a bright glow and elegance to the general appearance.

Here are some great safari-themed pieces of furniture:

Safari Changing Table

If you get a changing table for your safari nursery, consider one that has animals on it or at least features safari colors. You could also look for a Safari changing mat like the one below.

The Baby Crib and Bedding

You could also add a safari-themed border to the top of a plain changing table to give it the feel you are going for. That would make a great decoration.

A safari crib is a great choice for a safari nursery. It can be as simple as having animals or trees painted on it, or you can go with an actual safari-themed crib that has fabrics and designs featuring safari animals and landscapes.

A lion or elephant blanket would look great in your little ones’ crib. Have a search online to find cute safari bed sheets and bedding.

Safari Themed Animal Print Rug

When it comes to picking out the best furniture pieces for your safari-themed nursery, consider picking ones that are safari-like in color or theme. For example, you could use an animal print rug as a floor mat.

Having a nursery rug is a great idea because it makes the floor more comfortable for the baby. It could also help keep your child warm at night or even be used as a soft play area during the day.

Safari Animals for the Nursery

A play mat could be surrounded with cute plush toys that any baby boy or baby girl will love.

Soft safari animals like lions, elephants, and monkeys can provide hours of fun and safari-themed exploration.

You could also choose to have a few larger safari animals as part of your nursery décor. A large giraffe, lion, or elephant would look great in your safari nursery and I’m sure there are plenty of deals online to find the perfect large plush to go with your space.

Safari Bookcase

If you love safari books, why not create a safari bookcase to house them all.

For this idea, you could use safari-colored paint or stencils of safari animals to finish off the job.

You could even go all out and make it look like a real safari tree! Choose your favorite safari and jungle-themed books for toddlers and have fun choosing a collection of stories to read with your little one as they grow.

Safari Themed Curtains and Window Treatments

If you’re looking for window treatments to match your safari nursery, there are many options to choose from. You could use colored curtains with animal prints on them.

You might also want to consider using safari-themed valances, drapes, or blinds. Look at the different price ranges and choose something which is budget-friendly and good quality so it will last a long time.

Adding  themed touches to your nursery’s  window treatments is a great way to complete the safari look in your child’s room.

This could add style to the mix and different colors can add pop to give your room the charm you desire. You might even like some Giraffe tie backs to go with plain curtains.

Safari Themed Accessories

There are many accessories that you can use in your nursery to create the style and look you are going for. You can find safari lamps, saucers, wastebaskets, and more.

You can also find animal-themed wall art, mobiles, and clocks.

Be sure to choose accessories that match the specific look you’re going for in your nursery.

Do some research before you go shopping so you have a good idea of the nursery style you want to create.

Safari Themed Nursery Mobile

Consider purchasing safari animals for your nursery mobile. You could have musical, plush safari animals, or simply stuffed lions, elephants, and giraffes.

If you do purchase a musical mobile for your baby’s room, throw some safari animal sound effects on it so you can choose between hearing jungle sounds or safari noises.

Just imagine a safari mobile hanging over the crib with cute elephants, a monkey, a giraffe, and a lion. This would be so super cute for any gender baby to enjoy. It would look great in a baby boy or girl’s nursery.

Safari Table Lamp

If you want to add a lamp to your safari theme nursery, a table lamp would be a great option. You could also use a lantern or even safari-themed string lights.

A table lamp is useful for feeding times when your little one is younger and a night light can be useful for when they are older.

Safari Wall Art

There are plenty of super cute safari wall art pieces out there to use for your safari nursery. You could have safari paintings, safari animal decals, and these make adorable additions to the safari decor in your baby’s room.

You could even have safari paintings mounted on the wall in your safari nursery to create a  safari-themed focal point  in the room.

You can find reasonably priced wall art on Etsy so I’d recommend shopping on that site as it’s often budget-friendly and cheaper than a physical shop. one advantage to finding wall art on Etsy is you can buy cute digital prints and you don’t have to pay for shipping.

A Safari Name Sign

Name signs are a popular nursery item and can be personalized with your baby’s name.

You could purchase a safari-themed name sign to hang over the crib or changing table in your safari nursery.

If you want to get creative, you could even make your own safari-themed name sign. Just imagine a cute giraffe-themed sign or a wild monkey sign on the door of your safari nursery.

Enjoy Creating Your Safari Nursery

Whether it’s a wild African safari or a jungle safari theme nursery, there are so many things you can do to make it special for your little one.

Just be sure to use safari-themed decor that is age-appropriate and will grow with your child. You can also change up the safari look as they get older to keep the room interesting for them. With a little creativity, you can easily  create an adorable safari nursery  that both you and your baby will love for years to come.

Creating a Safari-themed Nursery: Bringing the Wild Into Your Baby’s Room

safari nursery ideas

Introduction: Designing a Memorable Space for Your Little Explorer

Are you an adventurous parent looking to create a one-of-a-kind nursery that reflects your love for the wild? Look no further! In this guide, we’ll take you on a journey to creating a safari-themed nursery that will ignite your baby’s imagination and transport them to the enchanting world of wildlife. With carefully curated decor, soothing colors, and playful elements, you can transform your baby’s room into a captivating safari oasis. Get ready to embark on this exciting design adventure, as we bring the wild into your baby’s room!

Table of Contents

Unleash your inner designer and let your creativity flow as you embark on this thrilling endeavor. Creating a safari-themed nursery allows you to infuse the room with a sense of adventure, curiosity, and exploration. Here’s how you can bring the wild into your baby’s room:

1. Choosing the Perfect Color Palette

Selecting the right color palette is essential to set the safari mood in your baby’s nursery. Opt for earthy tones, such as soft browns, muted greens, warm yellows, and sandy beiges. These colors emulate the natural hues found in the African savannah and will create a calming atmosphere for your little one.

2. Adorn the Walls with Wildlife Wonders

Transform the blank canvas of your nursery walls into a gallery of wildlife wonders. Hang safari-themed wallpaper or paint a mural featuring animals like lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and monkeys. This visually engaging backdrop will captivate your baby’s attention and foster their love for animals from an early age.

3. Safari-inspired Furniture: Where Style Meets Functionality

Invest in furniture pieces that embody the spirit of the safari while providing practicality for your baby’s needs. Opt for a crib adorned with animal motifs or carved with playful safari shapes. Pair it with a cozy rocking chair , embellished with animal-themed cushions, to create the perfect spot for bedtime stories and bonding moments.

4. Wild Accessories: Finishing Touches for an Adventurous Atmosphere

Accessories are the finishing touches that bring the entire theme together. Sprinkle the room with animal-themed decorations, such as plush toys, wall decals, and mobiles. Hang a canopy adorned with palm leaves to create a cozy nook for your baby. Integrate natural elements like bamboo blinds, woven baskets, and faux fur rugs to enhance the safari vibe.

5. Illuminating the Safari Nights

Lighting plays a crucial role in creating the right ambiance for your baby’s nursery. Opt for soft, warm lighting to evoke a soothing atmosphere reminiscent of the African sunset. Install a dimmer switch to adjust the brightness as needed, ensuring a serene and comfortable environment for both you and your little one during nighttime routines.

6. Window Treatments: Blending Style and Practicality

Choose window treatments that complement the safari theme while providing practicality. Install blackout curtains or shades to create a conducive sleep environment during daylight hours. Consider incorporating animal-themed tiebacks or valances to infuse an extra touch of safari charm.

7. Storage Solutions: Taming the Jungle of Baby Supplies

Keeping the nursery tidy and organized is essential for a stress-free parenting experience. Incorporate storage solutions that are both functional and visually appealing. Woven baskets, animal-shaped bins, and wooden crates provide ample space for storing diapers, toys, and clothing, while adding a rustic safari touch to the room.

8. Safety First: A Sanctuary for Your Little Explorer

Creating a safe environment for your baby is paramount. Ensure that all furniture meets safety standards and secure any loose cords or wires. Use corner protectors on furniture and install outlet covers to prevent accidents. Place baby gates at the entrance of the nursery to keep your little explorer safe inside their safari sanctuary.

9. Engaging Wall Art: Sparking Your Baby’s Imagination

Hang captivating wall art that sparks your baby’s imagination and introduces them to the diverse wildlife of the safari. Choose artwork featuring animals in their natural habitats, or opt for educational prints that teach your little one about different species. Not only will this stimulate their curiosity, but it will also add a visually appealing element to the nursery.

10. Comfortable and Cozy Bedding: Sleep Amongst the Wildlife

Make your baby’s bed the centerpiece of the safari-themed nursery with comfortable and cozy bedding. Look for crib sheets, blankets, and pillows adorned with animal prints or safari-inspired patterns. Soft, high-quality fabrics will provide a cozy and restful sleep environment for your little explorer.

11. Nature-inspired Flooring: Bring the Outdoors In

Choose flooring options that mimic the natural elements found in the safari. Hardwood floors or bamboo flooring can add warmth and authenticity to the room. If you prefer carpet, opt for a neutral shade that complements the color palette and adds a touch of softness to the space.

12. Creating a Reading Nook: Tales from the Jungle

Foster a love for reading by creating a cozy reading nook in the safari-themed nursery. Place a comfortable chair or bean bag alongside a bookshelf filled with animal-themed storybooks. Encourage interactive reading sessions with your baby, using different animal voices and engaging storytelling techniques.

13. Soundscapes of the Safari: Soothing and Stimulating Sounds

Enhance the sensory experience in the nursery by incorporating soothing and stimulating sounds of the safari. Install a sound machine that plays gentle nature sounds, such as rainforest ambiance or animal calls. This auditory backdrop will not only soothe your baby during nap time, but also provide a captivating environment for play and exploration.

14. Personalized Touches: Customizing the Safari Experience

Add personalized touches to the nursery to make it truly unique and special. Consider framing safari-themed photographs of your own adventures, or hang a world map to ignite your baby’s wanderlust. You can also incorporate their name or initials into the room decor, creating a sense of ownership and belonging.

15. DIY Safari Crafts: Unleash Your Creativity

Get crafty and unleash your creativity by incorporating DIY safari-themed crafts into the nursery. Create animal-shaped mobiles using felt or paper, make animal masks for imaginative play, or paint your own animal canvases. These handmade elements will add a personal touch to the room while allowing you to bond with your baby through creative activities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1: How can I ensure that the safari-themed nursery remains gender-neutral ?

A1: Opt for a color palette that is not strongly associated with either gender, such as neutral browns, greens, and yellows. Incorporate animal prints or patterns that appeal to both boys and girls, and focus on creating a playful and adventurous atmosphere that transcends gender stereotypes.

Q2: Can I incorporate other themes into the safari-themed nursery?

A2: Yes, you can combine elements from other themes to add variety and personalization. For example, you could integrate a touch of jungle or tropical motifs to enhance the safari experience.

Q3: How can I make the safari-themed nursery adaptable as my baby grows?

Opt for convertible cribs that can transform into toddler beds, and select timeless decor pieces that can easily be updated or replaced. This way, you can adapt the room to suit your child’s changing interests and preferences.

Q4: What are some safari-themed nursery ideas for small spaces?

A4: If you have limited space, you can still create a safari-themed nursery by focusing on key elements. Opt for wall decals or removable wallpaper instead of large murals. Choose compact furniture pieces that serve multiple functions, such as a changing table that doubles as a dresser. Utilize vertical storage solutions to maximize space.

Q5: How can I incorporate educational elements into the safari-themed nursery?

A5: You can include educational elements by displaying animal flashcards or posters that teach your child about different species. Hang a world map on the wall and point out the regions where various animals come from. Incorporate books about animals and wildlife into the nursery’s bookshelf.

Q6: What are some budget-friendly ways to create a safari-themed nursery?

A6: To create a safari-themed nursery on a budget, consider DIY projects such as painting your own murals or making animal-themed crafts. Shop for decor items at thrift stores, online marketplaces, or wait for sales and discounts. Repurpose items you already have, such as using baskets or crates as storage solutions.

Conclusion: Embarking on a Wild Design Adventure

Designing a safari-themed nursery is a thrilling and creative endeavor that allows you to bring the wonders of the wild into your baby’s room. By carefully selecting the color palette, incorporating safari-inspired furniture and accessories, and adding personalized touches, you can create a captivating and memorable space for your little explorer. Remember to prioritize safety, comfort, and adaptability as your baby grows. So unleash your creativity, embrace the spirit of adventure, and embark on this wild design journey as you create a safari-themed nursery that will nurture your baby’s imagination and love for the animal kingdom.

When I was just a baby, I don't think my nursery had a theme, let alone a safari nursery decor! Maybe it wasn't as popular back then, but I'm pretty sure my nursery was the same as my two brothers before me. Probably had some hockey sticks and football posters around.

Nowadays, there are so many fun ideas out there for decorating a nursery, and with the help of the internet, we can continue to be inspired by theme after theme. So now it's your turn to decide on a theme for your own little one's nursery. There are a lot of directions you can go.

A deer themed nursery , an “under the sea” design, or what about a jungle safari? Oh! You liked that last idea did you? In that case, you are going to want to check out these 32 safari nursery decor ideas that are perfect for your soon-to-be wild child.

1. Born to be Wild

Your adventurous little one will be born to be wild and free in their very own safari themed nursery. A green and white color scheme, with fun wall paint, animal stuffies, and fun paper foliage.

2. Neutral wallpaper

Create an accent wall in your baby nursery with a neutral safari themed wallpaper. Delicate palm leaf patterns decorate the wall like the thick foliage of the jungle trees. Then, add in some jungle animal prints, and why not some real plants for a breath of fresh air.

3. Decorate with Jungle Leaves

Find places to add extra green around the safari nursery to really turn it into a lush jungle. Hang vines and leaves amongst the nursery furniture, framing shelves, and wrapped around mirrors. Thus, taking your safari nursery decor to a whole new level.

4. Safari Mural

Just like when you take a safari ride in Africa, you will stumble upon a wide array of animals in enormous sizes and impressive colors. A wall mural is a great way to easily recreate that epic scene.

5. Elephant Rug

You don't necessarily have to use an elephant, any jungle animal will do when picking out a fun little rug for your nursery. Although I must say, the elephant is pretty dang cute!

6. Giraffes

Decorate your beautiful baby's nursery with giraffe decorations. Prints, stuffed animals, and small decor pieces can be added around the room to really bring some safari life to the room.

7. Safari Animal Prints

It's amazing how far some simple prints can go. You can completely transform a room and really put together a theme by adding in some prints that match said theme. An easy and effective decorating technique.

Combine two different techniques, by painting the walls with leaves and then adding in homemade 3D ones. Besides, making those leaves is a super fun craft project that you can do on the weekend with your friends.

9. Monkey Curtains

Get some help from your safari friends around the new nursery. A sweet monkey can help you do the job of pulling back the curtains so you can let the light in on your newborn's face.

10. Elephant Hamper

Another safari friend that can help out is the reliable elephant. He's great at helping you keep the nursery organized and clean. A fun woven hamper that you can use to throw anything dirty into.

11. Brown and White

I adore this neutral color scheme that is perfect for any gender baby. The deep browns and white work great together and give a bright and earthy feel. Also, the decorating is done perfectly! An elephant mounted on the wall surrounded by images of maps and animals.

12. Palm Leaf Bedding

You can find all sorts of ways in your decorating to add that safari feel. The bedding is an easy way to add some color and design into the nursery. Try to look for crib bedding with safari animals, African landscapes, or jungle leaves.

13. Bookends

Playful decor pieces like elephant and giraffe bookends make designing and furnishing your nursery a sitch. Keep your eyes peeled for items like this when shopping online or at local stores around town.

14. Banana Leaf Playmats

Like rolling around on the jungle floor (without all the dirt) a lushly decorated playmat is a wonderful accessory to look for. The fun green banana leaves are stylish and fit perfectly with the theme.

15. Green and Yellow

I think green and yellow make for a charming color scheme when picking out tones for your safari themed nursery. Yellow like the spots on a towering giraffe and green like the lush foliage of a jungle scene.

16. Animal Heads

What a fun idea! Unique styles of animal heads up on the wall watching over your little baby in their precious slumber. I really like how it looks on that banana leaf background which really makes the heads stand out.

17. Zebras and Antelopes

Happy dancing zebras prance in lines along the walls while antelope heads pop out to say hello. I adore how this room came together for a lovely mix of cute and trendy.

18. Safari Mobile

As your baby opens their eyes each morning they will be greeted with happy safari animals pirouetting above them. Definitely lookout for a cute mobile that matches the theme as the perfect safari nursery accessory.

19. Growth Chart

Yes, yes, and double yes! A super awesome idea for keeping track of the growth of your little one. Watch them grow taller and taller matching the height of the safari animals that have kept them company all this time.

20. Safari Animal Hardware

I remember having little animal friends that I would play with in the bathtub and I absolutely adored them! So, I'm definitely on board with this creative idea of adding animal toys to the furniture as hardware. A simple yet effective idea.

21. A Sophisticated Look

This safari themed nursery doesn't have that little kid feel as so many others do. This feels like a room that is adult-friendly as well. Besides, you as the adults will be spending just as much time in there as the children!

22. Figurines

Really have fun when picking out safari animal figurines. The look is definitely trending right now so it should be easy to find a variety of different styles and looks that you can use. In my opinion, the more safari nursery decor, the merrier!

23. Elephant Light

Look for a nightlight that will help you in the middle of the night when the crying starts, but that also fits the theme. Safari nursery decor should not only be stylish, but functional too.

24. Happy Lions

I am obsessed with this happy lion rug! I actually want one for my own room, let alone for any future safari nursery. The soft yellows and oranges make for a cheery, bright, and chic nursery.

25. Palm Leaves

As if your baby was dreaming away in a lush bush of jungle foliage. They are sure to have imaginative and happy dreams, and you as well are going to have happy nights watching them sleep.

26. Giraffe Hanger

Safari nursery decor pieces that are made out of natural material, such as woven bamboo or straw, is truly an extra. When you picture a safari, you probably imagine those open grasslands and dense jungles, all sprawling with flora and fauna. So, bring those natural elements to your decorating.

27. Elephant Rocker

I definitely remember falling asleep quite a few times on my horse rocker when I was a wee little one. Rockers are a great element to have in a nursery, and an elephant one really works with the safari vibes.

28. Safari Animal Clock

Maybe your baby will start telling time at an early age with such a fun little clock in their nursery. Or, you know, maybe they will just gaze and wonder about the interesting animals displayed.

29. Wall Vinyls

Painting a mural on the wall is fun and all, but an easier option is to buy some wall vinyl displaying fun safari scenes. The elephant and lion go happily marching amongst the foliage with a monkey friend keeping them (and your baby) in good company.

30. Stuffie Hammock

This is perfect! Instead of using your traditional ol' toy box to throw all the plush friends into, a corner hammock is a much more fitting idea. That way, these toys are still on display as fun safari nursery decor when not being played with.

31. Giraffe Bookshelf

People continue to impress me with their clever ideas. A giraffe makes a perfect bookshelf with their long necks! A great addition to the nursery so you can start to collect good night stories to read them into a deep slumber.

32. Sleep Safari Wallpaper

Sleepy safari animals are resting their tired eyes on this adorable wallpaper. I love the hints of yellow throughout the images making it a perfect accent color when planning the color scheme.

Safari Nursery Decor Ideas

safari nursery name

A few weeks ago, I shared a post announcing our exciting news – we’re expecting twins. They’re due this spring! We’re so excited – and I’ve been researching nursery ideas non-stop! I’ve contemplated a lot of different designs, and love so many ideas. Since we’re having a boy and a girl, we’re leaning toward a Safari theme. It just works so well for both genders (plus, there’s so much Safari nursery decor out there to choose from!). I may want to switch things up from time to time, so I won’t be going overboard. I still plan to keep things pretty neutral. That being said, I’ve found so much adorable décor, I just have to share. We’ll be picking and choosing a few of the pieces below.

Our Sweet Adventures

How to Create a Safari Themed Nursery

How to Create a Safari Themed Nursery

Creating our safari themed nursery for our baby boy was one of the most exciting times for us as we prepared for parenthood. As a travel couple, we knew we wanted the nursery to incorporate travel in some capacity. Then as we progressed in our theme, we realized we wanted the nursery filled with safari animals.

Since 2015, we have been fortunate to travel the world. We have hiked Machu Picchu , road-tripped 7 days in Ireland , swam with stingrays in the Grand Cayman , and more. All of these trips have been amazing, but the one trip that made the biggest impact on us was our trip to Africa to go on safari game drives .

When we were traveling throughout Africa, we immediately knew that we would return with our children one day. So this safari themed nursery for our first-born is influenced by our trip.

This guide is to help other travelers and safari-loving parents create the perfect nursery for their children. It includes ideas and items we used for our safari themed nursery with links of where you can purchase them too. By the end, you will have great resources to help inspire and create the perfect safari-themed nursery for your own little one.

This post may contain affiliate links. When you click on the link you will have the option to purchase a product at no extra cost to you, but I would receive a small commission. I want to thank everyone for following and supporting us on all of “Our Sweet Adventures.” 

What Kind of Safari Theme Are You Looking For?

Yes, there are two different safari themes to choose from! You can do a jungle safari or an African safari. A jungle safari can incorporate a lot of greenery and animals such as monkeys, tigers, and sloths. Whereas an African safari would include softer color tones, giraffes, cheetahs, zebras, and lions.

Or you can do a mix of both because this is your nursery after all! In fact, a lot of bedding and nursery decor include a mix of animals such as lions, elephants, monkeys, sloths, and giraffes. So do not be afraid to just pick and choose a theme with safari animals that fit your interest.

Other things to consider when you begin decorating your safari theme nursery is the decor style and to keep it simple. I will discuss these two considerations further below.

Modern or Kid-Friendly?

One thing to decide for the safari themed nursery is whether you want the decor to be more modern or kid-friendly. When you begin your search for cute safari animals and decor to place in the nursery, do you want the pieces to look realistic or cartoonish?

Here is an example of how I differentiate modern decor vs. more kid-friendly decor. Both are adorable but have distinct styles to set the tone of the nursery.

safari nursery name

Keep it Simple

My biggest piece of advice is to keep it simple. You will come across so many cute safari-themed furniture and decor that can easily fit in the nursery. However, there comes a time when it can be too much.

Mix the nursery with big and small items that reflect a safari. For example, we have a beautiful world map canvas with animals and monuments on the wall behind the crib. When we were searching for the perfect bedding for the crib, there were plenty of safari themed blankets and sheets that were adorable. Yet, we decided to go with a simple grey blanket because a “busy” blanket would take away from our beautiful canvas.

With that said, if you have a simple backdrop against the crib then you could definitely go all out with a cute safari animal blanket! The trick is to balance the room with safari pieces and decide what is important to you in the nursery.

Think of Your Colors

When you start to plan and create your safari theme nursery, think about your color scheme. Are you going for a gender-neutral color? Are you looking to go more towards pink and blue? Or will you do a little bit of both?

Whichever color you choose, just remember to use the colors as accents and decorative touches. For example, we only painted our color, grey, on one wall so it was used as an accent wall. The rest of the room is a neutral off-white.

Then when we added more accents of grey with our changing mat, laundry basket, bedding, and rocking chair. Once we added the travel and safari decor, every piece pops out nicely. So when you enter the room, you feel a balance of color.

What You Need for a Safari Themed Nursery

Of course, you will need all the basics to create your safari themed nursery. I am talking about a crib, dresser, rocking chair, changing table, etc. However, to make it a safari nursery, you will add different elements of decor to the room that fits the theme.

For example, safari bedding, animal plush toys, watercolor safari animal paintings, animal growth chart, mobile, and more. Your options are almost endless; so it is truly all about what you want and your style.

Decor that can Enhance the Safari Themed Nursery

Based on my personal experience and our son’s nursery, here are some decoration items to consider when you are looking for inspiration for your nursery. Most of our decorations were purchased from either Amazon or Etsy. If you like what you see, you can click on the items below to view and purchase them.

World Map Canvas

The world map canvas is one of my favorite pieces in the entire nursery and was the very first decor we purchased. As the focal point, it really set the tone for the rest of the room. You can either get a world map in a canvas print or wall decal. Both options offer a variety of sizes and background colors that you can choose from to best fit your nursery.

Click here to view Etsy world map canvases. Click here to view what we ordered – it comes in different colors.

Watercolor Safari Baby Animals Prints

safari nursery name

In addition to the world map canvas, the watercolor safari baby animal prints is another decorative element that brings our nursery together. We went for a realistic look and framed the prints in grey to fit our color scheme. Just like the world map canvas, there are several artists that offer some great safari animal prints. For example, one artist creates adorable baby animal prints with floral crowns for a girl’s nursery.

Safari Animal Drawer Knobs

safari nursery name

A simple touch of decor for your safari theme nursery can be changing your drawer knobs. The drawer knobs are a very small feature but still a cute piece of decor for the nursery.

Click here to view Etsy safari animal drawer knobs. We ordered individual safari animal drawer knobs – giraffe , lion , and elephant .

Safari Animal Growth Chart

safari nursery name

I cannot speak from personal experience (yet), but I have no doubt that one of the most exciting parts of being a parent is watching your child grow. I remember as a kid, I was always excited to visit my grandparents just to get measured! So having a growth chart in our nursery was something essential to us and it can be a great addition to your nursery too.

Animal Play Mat

safari nursery name

The animal play mat is super cute and can be versatile for your nursery and little one. It can be used as a center rug for decoration in the nursery, for a newborn photo shoot, a crawling or play mat for your baby, or all of the above. There are several different animals to choose from, each in a grey and white tone. You can pick a giraffe, elephant, lion, tiger, monkey, and more.

Click here to view the different animal play mats – we picked the tiger.

Plush Safari Animal Toys

safari nursery name

Of course, every baby needs plush animal toys . It’s a baby’s first friend, right? After all, this is a safari-themed nursery, so plush animal toys are essential. You can go wild and stuff (no pun intended) the room with several animals or just pick and choose a few. For us, we chose to focus on cheetahs, lions, giraffes, and elephants.

Plush Giraffe Rocking Chair

safari nursery name

This plush giraffe rocking chair is an item all for show! As our son grows, I am sure he will enjoy playing on it but for now, it is just one of the cutest elements in the nursery. If you love giraffes, you will love this rocking chair.

Safari Animal Mobile

safari nursery name

The safari animal mobile is more of a necessity item in the nursery but also adds a decorative element to the crib and bedding. There are quite a few brands that offer matching bedding and mobiles to complete your crib and nursery. To match our elephant, lion, giraffe, and grey theme, Lambs & Ivy had the perfect safari animal mobile for us.

26 Safari-Themed Nursery Items For Families Who Love Animals

safari nursery name

We independently pick all the products we recommend because we love them and think you will too. If you buy a product from a link on our site, we may earn a commission.

If you're an animal person, you probably want your new baby to grow up loving animals too. And what better way to get him started than by decorating his nursery in a jungle theme?

Not only is it a tried-and-true (and adorable) classic nursery theme, but it will ensure your little one grows up loving all sorts of animals — from giraffes and hippos to elephants and crocs.

But finding the perfect decor can be a bit overwhelming — and you already have a lot on your plate!

To help you out, The Dodo rounded up some of the cutest safari-themed pieces for your baby's nursery (and loved every minute of it).

29 Adorable Neutral Safari Nursery Must Haves

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I'll receive a commission if you purchase through my link, at no extra cost to you. Please read full disclosure here .

A neutral safari nursery is the perfect theme for any mama’s out there wanting their baby’s room to have the fun vibes of a safari, but with calming and neutral colors that go with anything!

Neutral Safari Nursery

Going with a neutral safari nursery can be a great fit for anyone looking for something fun, yet toned down, something gender neutral, or something that isn’t the bright and colorful options that are often out there.

Figuring out how you want to decorate the baby’s room can be a project all on it’s own, but once you’ve decided on neutral safari nursery, the fun can really begin!

We are going over all the best pieces out there to create a stunning space that both you and your little one will adore!

This post is all about creating a beautiful neutral safari nursery .

29 Ideas for a Gorgeous Neutral Safari Nursery :

1. wooden safari animal cutouts.

wooden safari animal cutouts

How cute are these wooden outlines?! Subtle and neutral for sure, but still very much on theme with the neutral safari nursery.

They are easy to hang with either small nails or double sided tape, neither is included.

These would look great above the crib, the bookcase, spread out in the nursery, or wherever makes sense!

2. Safari Animal Prints for Nursery

safari animal prints for nusery

Adorable safari animal prints for nursery!! Not too over the top with the colors or drawings. Very neutral, but with a bit of color, if that’s more your style.

Such sweet empowering phrases too – would be great for starting affirmations with your little one if you’re into that!

These prints use non-toxic paint and glossy paper. They are 8×10, but do not come with frames.

3. Baby Safari Animal Prints

baby safari animal prints

Another stunning option if you’re in the market for safari animal prints! These ones are especially adorable since they feature baby safari animal. Too cute!

Still leaning neutral with the colors being toned down, and these feature cute sayings as well. They are watercolor style, so that helps with the colors being not too in your face, but still really pretty.

These arrive unframed and come in 8×10 or 11×14.

4. Safari Crib Mobile

safari crib mobile

Definitely more on the colorful side, but still would easily fit into a neutral safari nursery. It’s colorful enough to brighten up the nursery, but not so much that it will take away from the neutral overall theme.

Also, once baby is done with the crib, you can cut off the little felt animals to use as toys!

5. Safari Laundry Basket

safari laundry basket

These doodles on this safari laundry basket are too cute! You’re going to need a laundry basket in the nursery for sure, so why not have it be another piece of decor!

These grey outlines keep with the neutral safari nursery theme, while still being a functional piece for the baby’s room.

Would also work as a storage bin!

6. Safari Milestone Blanket

safari milestone blanket

While a milestone blanket isn’t usually decor for the baby’s room, that doesn’t mean it can’t be, or at least the milestone blanket you do have is on theme with the room!

This one is sweet with the baby animal illustrations! Could also be used as a baby blanket play mat to keep out for your little one.

7. Safari Wall Decals

safari wall decals

Wall decals are a really simple way to add a lot of decor with minimal effort needed. Wipe down your walls, peel, and stick. Good to go!

These baby safari animals are toned down in color to go with the neutral-ness of the room, and would look great no matter where you place them. It is 8 total pieces, so you can either layer the plants with the animals, or separate those.

8. Elephant Lamp for Nursery

elephant lamp for nursery

How sweet is this little mama and baby elephant lamp?! Would be the perfect accent piece on a dresser or side table in the nursery.

9. Safari Crib Bedding

Sheets and bedding can be such an easy way to add decor since the crib is essentially the centerpiece of the room!

This set is very modern and neutral with the tan color.

This bedding set includes a comforter, 2 crib sheets in 2 different prints, crib skirt, pillow, diaper stacker, fleece blanket, and contoured changing pad cover.

10. Lion Rug for Nursery

lion rug for nursery

The absolute cutest lion rug! Plus and soft, perfect for baby to play, crawl, and roll around on. There are a few other safari prints for this listing as well, but they aren’t neutral.

11. Safari Nursery Wall Art

More safari wall prints, but with a different style this time. No framing needed since they come with the bit to hang them with already.

They come in two different sizes 18×24 and 18×36.

12. Crochet Lion Wall Hanging

This crochet lion is the cutest thing!! Would work well if you were doing a boho kinda vibe along with your safari theme.

13. Safari Crib Sheets

More neutral safari nursery bedding! The easiest piece of decor there is.

14. Lambs & Ivy Safari Wall Stickers

Peel and stick, as easy as that!

There’s a picture on the listing that helps you to get an idea of just how big these are, which I suggest looking at since the default picture might make them seem a little bit bigger than they are.

PS – here’s a 6 piece nursery bedding set that matches these decals! Boom. Decor done!

How cool is this?! If you’re planning on having a chart marking your little ones growth, why not keep it on theme and go with a giraffe height chart!

This is a great piece as well since it can easily grow (no pun intended 😉) with your little one as you move them to a toddler room and big kid room.

16. Safari Baby Pillow

safari baby pillow

While not necessarily decor, it’s one of those baby items you’re likely to have and probably will be stored in their room. Why not have it match the decor so if it has to be stored out, it looks like another piece of decoration!

This is a breathable pillow made with organic cotton designed to help with flat head prevention.

17. Plush Elephant for Baby

I can practically feel how soft this plush elephant is through the screen!

Keep your little one’s lovies (or toys) right in line with the neutral safari nursery theme.

18. Animal Wall Hooks

animal wall hooks

This might be my favorite find of the bunch!

So so subtle, they easily blend in, but still very much provide some neutral safari nursery decor for the space, all while providing practical storage. Win win!

19. Neutral Safari Nursery Bedding Set

Neutral Safari Nursery Bedding Set

Another adorable crib bedding set! This one with hints of blue. This set includes a crib quilt, fitted sheet, and crib skirt. 

20. Animal Wall Decals

More safari wall decals! These ones though are much more subtle and all in grey tones.

As with all of the wall decals and stickers, be SURE to clean and dry your walls BEFORE applying otherwise they won’t stick properly. I have also seen that if it’s recently painted, you need to wait at least 3 weeks before applying as well.

21. Lion Night Light

lion nightlight

This is easily one of the most adorable nightlights ever! This silicone little lion would give your baby or toddler the comfort they need from a bit of light, all while keeping with the theme of the room.

This nightlight has touch control, 7 different colors it can cycle between, and a 1 hour sleep timer. It’s also cordless! It charges with a USB cord. Super easy to travel with!

22. Nursery Lion Rug

Another great neutral safari nursery rug option! This one leaning more warm, if that is the tone you’re going for. Comes in two different sizes and is washable!

23. Safari Crib Sheet

I know, I know. More sheets. But c’mon. Look at these!! All those little animal faces were begging to be included 😂 too dang cute!

These sheets are made with 100% all-natural breathable cotton.

They also have a musical crib mobile , 5 piece bedding set , diaper changing pad cover , and fleece blanket to go along with the sheets! You would seriously be set!

24. Safari Nursery Prints for Boys

If I was going with a neutral safari nursery for my incoming baby, I would 100% choose either these safari prints, or the ones below, depending on if it was a boy or girl. Obsessed!

The little baby faces, the water color, and the little blue bow ties are the absolute cutest!!! Not too over the top jungle either, if you’re just wanting to go light with the theme.

Don’t forget to grab frames !

25. Safari Nursery Prints for Girls

Right?! The cutest and sweetest prints.

26. Safari Nursery Closet Dividers

Safari Nursery Closet Dividers

There are so many ways to add in decor to the room, some very subtle, while still giving you the safari vibes. These closet hangers do exactly that! Something you likely will use anyways, so why not have it be matching your decor.

Would be perfect if your closet isn’t behind doors of any kind so these dividers can really shine, but even if they are behind closed doors, you’ll get a little spark of joy from that little bit of decor every time you open the closet!

27. Safari Play Mat

safari play mat

Some kind of play mat or blanket is a must for your little guy or gal, and this gray giraffe one goes perfectly with the neutral safari nursery decor!

Can be a play mat, crawling blanket, or stroller blanket! Whatever your little one needs. And of course, doubles as decor.

Also, is machine washable!

28. Safari Hamper

safari hampet

Here is another good storage basket or laundry basket option, designed with safari doodles all over it. This one however, has a drawstring on the top.

29. Monkey Curtain Tiebacks

How fun are these curtain ties?! Add that little bit of safari flair with these monkeys that hang from the curtains. These install quickly using stickers.

SO many adorable and sweet neutral safari nursery ideas! Hopefully this post makes it super easy to get to decorating, or at least provides a bunch of inspiration to help get you started. No matter what, your baby will love whatever space they create since you made it with love!

Candace Parker Shows Off Safari-Themed Nursery After Welcoming Baby No. 3 — See the Photos! (Exclusive)

The former Las Vegas Aces player welcomed her son Hartt with wife Anna Petrakova in May 2024

Crate & Kids

Candace Parker is giving an inside look at her baby boy's nursery.

The former Las Vegas Aces power forward, 38, collaborated with Crate & Kids to design the perfect nursery for her newest team member, son Hartt , whom she welcomed in May with wife Anna Petrakova .

Speaking exclusively with PEOPLE about the partnership, Parker opened up about the sweet safari metaphors throughout her baby's new room, her connection to the color scheme and shared some of her nursery non-negotiables.

"It was really cool, because we started designing a mood board, and [Petrakova] and I have always loved loud colors," says the former WNBA star, now working as an NBA analyst for TNT and president of women's basketball for Adidas. "We love animals, and so we were just like, 'Why not make it kind of a safari theme?' So, we were able to kind of create that and bring that to life with Crate & Kids, which has been unbelievable."

The mom of three adds how easy the process was, sharing, "What they do is bring your mood board to life. And they did exactly what we dreamed it could be, and honestly more. When I first saw it, I was like, 'This is unbelievable.' We couldn't wait to bring our little guy home to it."

Parker explains that the nursery's safari theme, complete with a giraffe throw pillow , lion crib quilt , and zoo animal mobile , allowed for the loving parents to include "little nods" to who they are as a family.

"I just feel like, I'm the youngest of three, and the lion is ferocious and strong and the king of the jungle. And I think our little Hartt is going to have to encompass all of that, especially with big brother Airr being the personality he is," she says of her and Petrakova's outgoing older son Airr, 2.

"So I think there was a little bit of strategy in that, a little bit of priming, where he sees the lions. There's a couple giraffes in there as well; we're tall and long and lanky and all those things," she explains. "So there were definitely little nods to who we are as a family, and I think that he'll enjoy growing with that."

Parker admits that when it came to the color scheme, she and Petrakova didn't always agree on the orange tones of the room. "I don't think she could envision the color orange. She was like, 'I don't know. I don't want it to be too loud.' But then we saw it, and we can't even picture it being any other color now," she says, adding that "I was the one that was pushing for the orange."

Parker's love for the color comes from her fond memories of playing for the women's basketball team at the University of Tennessee. "I went to the University of Tennessee, so I won't say orange is my favorite color, but I just feel like when someone wears orange, they stick out. And I really want my kids to stand out and be who they are in this world, so why not start from day one with your room?"

It helped that orange fit perfectly with the safari theme, and Parker explains how Crate & Kids helped the moms see that. "Consulting with Crate & Kids, it was amazing for them to say, 'Okay, this will look good with this if this is the color that you're going for.' It ended up turning out way better than even I expected."

As a mom of three, Parker says adding the " Oak Wood Queen Bed was a non-negotiable," because it gives the moms the "option of being able to utilize it for us when we want to get extra sleep but stay with the baby."

"But also, if we were to have guests come over, we have an additional room," she adds.

And while the queen bed is the parent's favorite part of the room, baby Hartt can't get enough of his mobile. "When I'm at the changing table and he's looking at the mobile with all the animals on it, he likes tracking it, and it's just like everything that we envisioned," Parker explains. "So I think that right now if I were to say what his favorite part of it is, it's that. I move that when I'm changing his diaper, and it makes it so much easier."

Parker is also mom to daughter  Lailaa , 15, who's just as excited to care for her baby brother in the new nursery.

"She is unbelievable. She was built for this role," the proud mom says of Lailaa. "Our 2-year-old, obviously, is transitioning from being a baby to now he's, like, independent, and Lailaa does a great job of keeping him in line, in order, but also being a sibling. I trusted her immediately with my infant. I mean, the way she holds him and the way she burps him."

However, Parker says there is one task that Lailaa is staying clear of. "She won't change diapers — that's her only thing — only when she's babysitting. But when she does watch him for us, occasionally, she'll change a diaper or two."

"She loves her little brothers, and I'm really excited as a mom because you almost get teary-eyed when you see your kids together and interacting."
