Jungle Theme Nursery Ideas and Jungle Baby Bedding
I decorated my baby boy's nursery in a jungle theme. I bought the Fisher Price Rainforest crib bedding set because it's bright and cheery. I then mixed and matched various jungle, animal, and safari nursery decor accessories with it. I am very pleased with the results. It's a colorful nursery full of whimsical animals wearing friendly smiles. The best part is that his baby room grew with him. As a toddler, he was crazy about Diego. I left the green and khaki decor up, along with all the animal wall decals and accessories and mixed in Diego bedding and accessories. His jungle baby room quickly turned into a cool Diego room. It was a great way to stretch our budget.

Choosing Jungle Theme Nursery Accessories
Jungle nursery ideas and tips
I learned that you can mix jungle, zoo, and safari baby bedding collections as long as the colors work well together. It doesn't have to match exactly; it just needs to look good together. Your baby doesn't know that elephants and hippos are found on the savanna, while monkeys and tigers are in the jungle. So, first choose the crib bedding set you like most. Then, when choosing nursery decor accessories, have fun and mix elements you like from each nursery theme set and choose animals that you like the best.
Jungle Themed Nursery Ideas Decorating Tip
Don't be afraid to mix accessories from other nursery collections with the bedding you choose. The Fisher-Price Rainforest collection doesn't have a switch plate cover or wall decals, so I used some from another jungle collection.
Tips for Choosing Jungle Nursery Paint Color
Practical Advice on Choosing a Nursery Wall Color
I like warm tones. Warm colors make me feel good and cool colors make me feel bad, so I knew that I didn't want a blue nursery for my little one. Blue makes me think of sadness. I wanted a green, but it needed to be a warm green. Since we'd be sticking with the color for a while I definitely didn't want to go with a baby mint green that he'd outgrow in a few years. I wanted a green that would look good with his new Rainforest bedding, but I also wanted it to look good with what ever he wanted next (dinosaurs, cars, bugs, etc).
I went to the paint store and grabbed a sample card for every green they had (remember that the color will never look the same in your home's lighting as it will in the store's lighting). I then taped each sample up on the wall in the baby's nursery. I looked at the colors in the morning light, afternoon light, and evening light over the next few days. If one green looked to gray or to yellow during one part of the day, I took it down and tossed it. Then, from the greens that were left, I chose the one that I liked best.
In summary, the best way to choose a paint color is:
1) Decide how long you'll be living with this color.
2) Bring samples home and look at them in the room that you'll be painting.
3) Look at the samples in natural and artificial light where they will appear during different times of day.
4) View the samples over a few days before making a choice. Not only might you feel differently on different days, but the lighting may be different too.

Jungle nursery ideas
1Greens - From lush, grass green to an earthy olive green, green makes a great backdrop for a jungle nursery. Most jungle and safari baby bedding coordinates best with greens that have a touch of brown or a touch of gray.
2Yellows - Yellow might not be an obvious choice for a jungle nursery, but it makes a fabulous jungle nursery color is you choose the right shade. Stay away from pastel yellow and sunshine yellow. Look instead for mustard yellows, golds, butter yellows, and other earthy shades of yellow.
3Khaki - Warm shades of khaki, beige, and tan would make a fabulous paint color for a jungle theme nursery.
4Brown - If you aren't afraid of bold colors, why not go for a super rich chocolate brown to match the cheerful monkeys in your baby's jungle nursery?

I love that the bumper is printed on both sides. Many baby bedding sets have just a solid color on one side of the bumper. The sheet is ultra soft. And it's really neat that there is a whole line of toys, gyms, bouncers, jumpers, high chairs, diaper bags, (you get the idea) that Fisher-Price makes in the Rainforest theme. So, you can have everything from the nursery to the playpen to the swing and more matching!
I bought the entire Rainforest collection and have also accessorized it with items from other jungle and safari collections. It makes for an adorable nursery.
We painted the walls green. The green we chose looks great with the bedding and is vibrant without being a primary green. It is a great paint that covers well with just one coat. It's Sherwin Williams Cashmere paint in "Dancing Green."
