Nursery Theme Thursday 5: Urban Jungle

Happy Thursday! I would like to introduce this week’s featured nursery theme – Urban Jungle (minus the pollution, noise, and general hub-bub, of course!)…

Urban Jungle Nursery Theme

I have to admit – this one was inspired by the adorable Skyline bedding collection from Dwell Studio. I have been looking for an opportunity to feature it. I love how the city pattern is not overpowering – only appearing on the crib skirt, and with a scale fitting for an urban skyline. This gender-neutral Urban Jungle happens to be inspired by New York City, but yours could be another locale (or none at all).

The Traffic Jam Rug is just hysterical – they have three different colorways. This is Manhattan, Boston is a blue-green and pale yellow, and Miami is also available but I haven’t seen it (I’m assuming it’s coral and turquoise?). I thought it was a great way to pull through the theme without introducing a competing color element on the floor.

This room is all about pops of color against a gray/white backdrop of the city, rather than general, overall ‘big’ color (which you might know, by now, that I also do 🙂 ). One of these is the cute plush taxi cab. Don’t look too closely – it’s actually a dog toy! But totally safe for a baby to play with. Just don’t let Sparky claim it for his own; it’s a delightful accent for this nursery.

If you’ve been following Interiors For Families for awhile, you may recognize the glider from Thoroughly Modern Glider – the Grano Glider/Recliner in orange, one of my favorites.

If you were going to create a nursery inspired by Urban Jungle, what city would you choose, and what decorative elements would go with that city?

    Bedding collections that are displayed in our local store are really expensive but they look great. ;
