Today we’re taking a walk on the wild side as we traverse rooms styled with an African vibe. Not only do these rooms suggest adventure and exploration, but they have a subliminal undertone of education and discovery that’s perfect for developing minds.

From the vibrant rainforest to the tranquil terrain of arid plains and everything in between, let us take you on a magical safari ride to some of our favourite out-of-this-world kids’ interiors inspo.


Indies’s room is a refreshing take on the jungle theme with a Safari Bright feature wall by @roomblush. The oversized fronds and leaves bring a modern twist with their camouflage greens and tonal terracottas. We see you though, Mr Cheetah.


Oh, to wake up next to the natural wildlife of the African savannah plains. That’s the view from Nouri’s cot courtesy of the African Safari Sunset wallpaper by @creativelabamsterdam. Leopards, giraffes, elephants and antelope graze beneath the palms’ shade while elegant crane take flight above. If you look closely, there’s even a bespoke name flag built into the illustrative wall covering. A muted colour palette delivers a sleepy safari ambience that’s just darling for nurseries and naptimes.


In sharp contrast, this room walks on the wild side and comes alive at night with the roar of the king of the jungle. Vibrant animals pop against a black sky full of intrigue and excitement. The plush giraffe is perfectly positioned beside the feature wall adding to the sense of activity but safe from the clutches of a hungry leopard! We love the soft touch of peach from the draped cot blanket and salt lamp while the lush green foliage intensifies the safari experience.

This one’s for the big cat lovers! Madden’s rustic jungle room is full of adventure with a couple of feline friends for good company. Felix the tiger and Cesar the lion by @wildandsoft peek out of the Tropical mural from @photowall_sweden. The chocolate carpet mimics the boggy rainforest ground with a welcome landing pad in the fabulous animal skin shaped Day Dream digital print rug by Toffee, terracotta and mocha combine to create a world of exploration, all to be observed from the cover of a magical tepee bed.


Cool vibes abound in Nox’s urban jungle room with a Venn diagram arrangement of tasselled rugs and a burst of animal print textiles. It’s great to see a different take on the colour blocked wall technique with an unrefined finish adding to the raw and wild spirit of the room’s theme. Meubol’s raffia cushion adds height and an unusual twist to the floor treatment, and we love the introduction of safari animals in unexpected ways, like the comical chimpanzee vase.

Swinging into safari in sublime style is this dreamy sepia-toned space designed by Valentina. A languishing leopard on the Jungle Hangout wallpaper dangles a paw perilously close to the delightful handmade Afa the giraffe. The sun-bleached colours channel arid, dusty Serengeti vibes.

There’s no camouflage in this jungle hideout. Mono foliage puts the elegant giraffe and majestic elephant centre stage on this whimsical wallpaper. A modicum of mint adds a welcome punch of pastel in the floaty hot air balloons. It’s the perfect scene for imaginative storytelling and innocent escapism.

The aptly named Straw painted wall (@vestingpaintandcraft) is a perfect match for the sandy beige tones of the African Safari Sunset wallpaper. The home-made mud cloth wall hangings are the real showstopper adding authenticity to Vic’s atmospheric bedroom. They were made with fabric and bamboo poles from an old tepee tent and daubed with LAB colours, Masala Chai no. 31 and Hunter no. 192 from @vestinghpaintandcraft.

This is what happens when you fuse African safari with the deep ocean. A truly global voyage full of the wonders of the world. Oh La Lot’s Mighty wallpaper for Creative Lab Amsterdam introduces luscious greens and rich russet tones, alive with the hubbub of jungle living. The bedside wall is an altogether more subdued affair painted in a calming shade of Farrow and Ball’s Dix Blue, a vintage hue with a hefty dose of green that makes it warm and relaxing.  Full marks go to for their marvellous Moody Lion rug from the Tapis Amis Rugs collection. Handmade in India, his unique woollen charm adds a cheery note to proceedings.

african themed baby nursery


There is something wonderfully poetic about the corner of this sweet nursery. The stunning rattan crib’s position appears to be in the spotlight of a clearing in the jungle wallpaper. It’s almost as though the trees and wilderness have parted to welcome this new arrival. The way the plush baby elephant mirrors its mother immortalised in the wall’s print only serves to reinforce this dreamy vision.


Sepia-toned savannah makes way for a light and airy nursery with the romantic notion of a bygone era. Perhaps it’s the classic Toile de Jouy feeling of the Pimpelmees giraffe and spider monkey mustard wallpaper that makes it feel this way. The approach is so delicate you can almost feel the gentle breeze passing through just by looking at the image.


The queen of the jungle comes to the fore again with her eclectic take on safari. Rachael’s self-styled rooms always exude childlike excitement, bags of character and attention to detail that guarantees sublime surroundings for enquiring explorers. Where to start? The Go Bananas orangutan framed print is the king of this particular jungle with his comical disposition and cheery optimism. How fitting that he’s been crowned Bojo?

He’s teamed with Pretty In Print Art’s jungle-coloured Hey Kiddo print and joined by some enchanting animals and familiar faces for those well-versed in plush nursery buddies. There’s Nobodinoz’s sleepy lion cushion and the toothy-grinned Jeremy the crocodile by Meri Meri, and not forgetting the unforgettable crocheted Frank the Frog by @stars_and_raindrops.
