How to welcome the wild to your walls…
Whether you’re looking to add some pizzaz to a man-cave, need a fun idea for a nursery, or simply want your living room to feel like the Amazon, jungle-themed decor is a great way to spice up any space. It’s easy to get carried away with tropical, jungle decor because the colors and patterns are big, bold, and bright. But, if you carefully plan out your ideas, you can bring the jungle inside in an exotic yet tasteful manner. We’ve put together some tips and tricks to help you embrace the wild life without overdoing it.
1) Plan around green
More than likely, your jungle-themed room will be overflowing with green. The key here is to pick a few hues and layer with the color. We recommend starting with green walls as a base. Choose a light green hue – perhaps a mint. Then, you can add darker greens throughout with photographs, plants, pillows, and furniture.
2) Have a favorite animal focal point
Instead of overloading with every jungle animal you can think of, have your favorite animal print be the focal point of the room. Then work around that as to not clutter the room with tons of animal prints and patterns. At Photos.com, you’ll find a slew of awesome jungle animal prints that really add to the decor of a jungle-themed room. From cheetahs to monkeys to exotic reptiles and birds, we have a everyone’s favorite in our Jungle Collection.
3) Don’t introduce too many patterns
It’s important to be thoughtful and selective about patterns. We recommend leafy greens or tropical florals to complement the rest of your décor. Stick to similar hues and choose patterns before beginning to decorate. Make sure the patterns match your photographs and furniture.
4) Add plants!
One of the most immediate ways to complete your jungle-themed room is to finish with plants (real or fake). Place bamboo or potted plants around the room to really embrace the theme and unleash your wild side.
