A friend mentioned that she was having trouble finding the right inspiration for a jungle-themed big-kid room for her adorable son, which naturally sounded like my kind of challenge. I could see why she couldn’t find what she wanted. Everything I found easily was simple green and brown with cartoon jungle animals which is cute, but not that something special she wanted for her elegant home. Finally, I found Peter’s Room by ZoyaB. It’s the perfect inspiration for that high-end-yet-kid-friendly look.
My next challenge, finding the look on a budget that won’t effect the kid’s college fund. I love the soft stripes on the wall and the hand-painted details throughout the room. The furniture is all designer and custom (read $$$$$$$), but there are always great options at different price points with a little creative searching.
For artwork, consider printing some of your favorite animal artwork and framing it at home with craft store frames. I have also framed pictures out of books and magazines. A used book store can yield some great finds.
Don’t forget to add plenty of themed plush animals! If your house is anything like ours, you’ll accumulate them quickly so encourage/lobby for choices that tie into the room and find a great place to display them.
