Etsy style files – create an animal themed nursery with Etsy

You can never go wrong with an animal themed nursery – and while this popular theme can sit anywhere on the spectrum from woodland creatures to farm animals, today we’re settling on a unisex nursery showcasing ever popular safari animals. Click on through to see the fab styling finds we’ve found in the Etsy aisles!


Quick and high impact, an easy way to define a theme in a nursery is with a wall decal. Safari animal silhouettes marching across a wall will ignite even the littlest imaginations. The removable Africa Safari Silhouette Wall Decal (pictured above) is priced from $82 at Wallums Wall Decals.


Decorate your nursery walls with these sweet safari animal prints. A set of six prints includes an elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion cub, rhino and monkey ready for you to frame and hang. Priced from $66, you can find these at Studio Q Gallery.


No nursery is complete without a mobile and this divine Tiny Little Nest animal mobile brings a touch of simple elegance to the space. Mesmerising and beautiful, vine patterned maple wood animals with copper crimp beads form a piece destined to be loved for years. With a $198 price tag, it’s at the luxe end of the scale, so some heavy hinting to family on a group pressie might be in order!


Cot sheets are an easy target for a spot of animal theme. We’re spoiled for choice on Etsy and I won’t lie, it was a tough decision to choose just one cot sheet – but this black and cream number stood out as being a fun, tigeriffic (yes, I made it up) choice. Priced $90 from Woolf With Me.


Be all prepared at the change table with this great change table cover and nappy caddy set, $104 from Great 4 Us Kids.


With the cooler weather coming, you’re going to need more than a sheet in the cot. Tuck your little person into bed with this superb Elske Little Style reversible Wild cot blanket, priced $99.


Keep a pile of burp cloths close to hand next to your nursing chair! Safari themed organic burp cloths? You bet, you can nab yourself a set of three for $34 from Modern Made Baby.


We understand faux taxidermy isn’t to everyone’s taste – you either love it or you don’t. For those of you in the love it camp, take a look at this exquisite resin Mini Savannah Elephant, $41 from Wall Charmers.


For a touch of fancy pants storage, I can’t look past the gold painted Animal Jars from The Tamed Wildflower. Perfect for displaying sweet mementos on a shelf or housing change table essentials. Various jar shapes and animals are available, priced $11 each.


All your soft toy needs are met with this cute crocheted menagerie. The talented Renee can create just about any animal you’re after – and she takes custom orders! Priced from $50, a whole bunch of friends await at Little Pink Canary.


We here at Babyology love an instant download from the Etsy aisles and this print adds a cute typography quote to a nook. From At Art Digital, the Oh Baby It’s A Wild World print will cost you just $7 to instantly download, then you’re free to print it at home in your size of choice.


Keep an eye on sleep and feed times with an awesome Mr Lion personalised clock. Prices start at $38 from Mr Wolfe.


Children will love these animated safari prints, full of colour, fun and a touch of cheekiness! The Safari Animal Print set includes both of these pictured prints and is $25 from DCA Studios.


With a love for animals comes great adventure and we love this bamboo Adventure Ahead wall art, stating exactly that. It’s $39 from Nest Accessories.


Stamping his ground and taking pride of place in your nursery chair could be this rather special pillow. A Gingiber best seller, the Elephant pillow is priced $44.


An easy and really effective DIY hack for anyone who can hold a screwdriver is to swap out old drawer knobs for new ones. Add an animal touch to your bub’s dresser with these Animal Print Wood Knobs, $8 each from Woodland Crew.


You’ll need a lamp for the inevitable midnight jaunts of baby settling, and we think this Nursery Animal Silhouette lamp shade is perfect for creating sleepy ambience. Priced $69 from Nicolai.


Have a herd of safari animals in your chair with this cute Zebra Softie, moonlighting as a cushion until your little one is old enough to play with him. You can find him at Julia Staite for $24.


Not just for parties, celebrate your bub’s new room by hanging a gorgeous tassel garland. Tissue paper dances in the breeze, creating a soothing rustle and adds a little something different to your nursery decor. A gorgeous copper, gold, ivory and khaki garland is surely reminiscent of a Serengeti sunset. It’s all yours for $35 at Ruby Ju.


If you like your African animals cute and cuddly, this mobile is for you. Completely handmade from wool felt, giraffes and elephants surely don’t get much prettier than this? Priced $157 from Flossy Tots.
