Anyone else finding themselves spending more and more time at home in their bedroom? Maybe it’s because the winter weather has me buried under a duvet, and I’d rather read a good book than venture out into the cold. Either way, it would be nice to make it into a cosy den, so I’ve found 7 animal bedroom ideas to help you revamp your hibernation hole!
Let’s face it, we all wish we were falling asleep in a hut, in the savannah surrounded by elephants, or next to a troop of Gorillas in the mountains. For now, we’ll have to make do with dreaming that we’re there. But, we can transform our bedrooms into the very wild paradise we dream of.
The problem with animal-themed décor is there’s always the risk of turning your beautiful adult bedroom into a nursery. It can’t be helped that cute animals are a favourite of parents, it’s important we all learn about animals, so who can blame them?
I have put together a list of 7 animal bedroom ideas. Ideas that are subtle enough that it makes you happy, knowing your home is full of your favourite species but doesn’t feel like you’ve walked into a jungle! I think they’re quite fun.
I’m going to start with my new favourite zero budget, decorating hack: books. I have soo many old plant and animal encyclopedias that I really don’t know what to do with. Until I watched this YouTube video which said, why not use them as décor?
If you take the protective cover from older books, they often have such beautiful spines. Stack a few and a lamp on top and you have yourself a decorative book corner. If you have any of the penguin special edition books, they have amazing ivy crawling up the side of them – perfect for a nature-inspired home!

5. Animal themed planters
If you want to feel like you’re sleeping under the stars in a jungle, you probably already have a substantial number of plants. Plants are cool, but they need planters so the soil doesn’t consume your bedroom (you could start growing your own moss rug then!).
There are so many inexpensive and cute animal planters out there that could add a touch of the wild side to your room. You can support a lot of small businesses, all of them have such different styles. They’re particularly perfect for giving a home to your tiny succulents. Here’s a couple of my favourites…
6. Animal Art Prints
The artwork you choose to put up in your bedroom can really help to differentiate it from a nursery, it’s also a wonderful way to express yourself! I have so many animal art prints to choose from, all for less than a tenner.
Pick your favourite and give it a new home, the perfect animal bedroom idea. 10% of every print is donated to a wildlife charity, so you can sleep easy knowing you’ve supported the planet and its beautiful animals.
