A safari theme is great for the child who dreams of adventure in far-off places. Use safari bedding as a centerpiece for the theme, or consider using bedding that is a combination of tans and animal prints for a different take on the theme.
To extend the theme past the bed, consider painting the room in a color that recalls the savannahs – tans and gold and ivories, and maybe some blue on the ceiling to evoke the idea of wide-open sky. You can also consider adding some of the animal-print or safari-themed wallpaper borders that are available.
Carry the safari elements through your window treatments and pillows, and add some stuffed animals – maybe lions and elephants and zebras – to the bed or a chair. Decorative accessories that can make the room that much more exciting include a butterfly net, binoculars, or a pith helmet, all of which can be hung on the walls.
