Wild colors and wild animals in this bright nursery idea

orange pink black white nursery idea with wild animals

Wild colors meet wild animals in this nursery inspiration board. And orange and pink together – a great combination!

The concept behind the room is all the black and white animals you can find – zebras, sheep, penguins, pandas. It’s quite a long list once you get going! So we have tons of animals in the little decor touches, which can go on the table or on a shelf. I tried to work as many different kinds and shapes of animals in as I could.

The crib is one that can convert to a toddler bed and I was thinking of that long-term use when I started piling up the pillows. Think in terms of making a miniature daybed. The stuffed bears can then become part of the pillow assortment.

The bedding is a custom made option I found at Etsy; she has quite a few fabrics to choose from in this color scheme. I picked the four I liked together best, but mix and match as you please. Rule of thumb for mixing patterns: one solid (or reads as solid), one large print, one small print, contrast in the backgrounds.

I’d stick with painting just one accent way with the orange (matched to the chair) where you would put the tree wall decal. This gives you the bright without becoming overwhelming. Plus, no way you want that orange chair up against an orange wall.
