Creating a Safari Themed Kids Interior
Looking to create a fun kids interior look that ticks all the boxes? From dreamy nursery spaces to bigger kids rooms, the safari interior theme is a failsafe trend that is most definitely here to stay. This gender neutral palette is perfect for mini adventurers and you will be amazed at how easy it is to pull together. Get ready to explore as we take you on a walk on the wild side through this exciting ‘How To’ guide.
When it comes to setting the scene, there are two distinct routes to choose from - stay neutral or go bold. A white background will enable you to go to town with soft furnishings and accessories in bright colours and wild prints. On the other hand, a colourful wall can add extra ‘wow’ factor and really appeal to little ones. If you are unsure, a good compromise is to go for a multi-tonal wall or mural. Try keeping the top half of the wall white and the bottom half a rich earthy green or sunshine yellow. Or how about a stunning sunshine mural to transport you straight to the heart of the African Savannah.
Choose furniture in white or natural wood tones to keep it neutral and allow the accessories to do most of the talking. Opt for versatile pieces with plenty of storage potential to keep clutter hidden away. The Abbeville Range features clever cube storage pieces from benches to shelving units and beyond. And, for those tight on space, Rackham has been designed to fit into more compact areas whilst still packing in plenty of storage power.
These jute storage baskets are crafted from natural materials and make a cute and useful addition. With plenty of room for storing toys, sports equipment, shoes and even clothing too.
Add extra interest with wall shelves and use them to display favourite reads and animal themed toys and trinkets. The ‘This Way That Way’ shelf makes a sweet addition, or how about these safari themed wall hooks, featuring 3 animal head characters that bring added fun factor. Be sure to check out Paxon too, a clever way to maximise your interior space. This genius bespoke wall storage system is a no brainer for the ultimate in organised living.
If your also on the lookout for a new bed, you’ll find plenty of options to choose from in our brilliant bed collection. From bunk beds to mid sleepers and traditional singles with underbed storage or pull out trundles. Each one is built to last, made using solid wood, in an array of classic designs.
Wild and Free
Once that’s all been decided, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve taken the hard work out of choosing the finishing touches, thanks to our one-stop Safari Collection. Brimming with roar-some accessories to furnish your space, this is where the adventure really comes to life.
Take a peek at this eye catching animal rug in handsome lion design. It’s sure to make a striking entrance thanks to the fun, colourful design. Plus, it’s made from pure hand tufted wool for a soft and luxurious feel that’s hard wearing too.
We love this ‘Around the World’ wall hanging, with its stunning detailing. Printed on a thick cotton canvas with a hand embroidered finish, it features a map of the continents, the oceans and the animals who inhabit our planet. A great educational piece, little ones can travel the world and learn about their surroundings whilst also adding a statement look to bare walls.
And how about this adorable book cart, the perfect reading buddy for kids who are as wild about wildlife as they are about books. There's plenty of space for all their favourites, and a strong pull-along cord and rubber trimmed wheels for tackling (imaginary) jungle terrain. The cart is made from strong MDF with a durable painted finish chosen for its resilience to bumps, knocks and scrapes.
Little crafters are sure to love this Lion Carry Caddy - a guaranteed roaring success at tidy up time. Choose from a lovely lion or terrific tiger design, each of which has three storage sections for keeping all their paints, pens, pencils and notepads stowed away neatly in one handy spot.
For the King or Queen of the jungle, you can’t go wrong with these animal-tastic toddler chairs. Always a great hit with little ones, they make the perfect seat for perching, drawing, playing and snacking. Sturdy and durable, the solid birch legs can be adjusted too.
Finally, if you have the space, add a tipi style tent for an added sense of adventure, the ideal hideout for a cool ‘camping under the stars’ vibe – great for roleplay scenarios or as a relaxing reading nook set up. Available in a range of colourways, they are collapsible too, to save on space when not in use.
