12 Whimsical Woodland Inspired Bedrooms for Kids

Children come to us with such open and inquisitive minds, so it’s incredibly important that we foster their imaginations. Designing your child’s bedroom is one task where that fostering comes into play. It’s up to you to create a space that they’ll love to sleep in and play in. Taking on a woodland theme in a kid’s bedroom is the perfect stepping stone to get their imaginations spinning and their curiosity for nature growing. These 12 whimsical woodland bedrooms will definitely inspire you to start thinking about trees and animals yourself!

Using a woodland theme means decorating with animals. Foxes are a particularly adorable choice because their bright red shade can introduce a real pop into your color scheme. Also, have you seen the foxy decorations out there? Animated foxes are just irresistible. (via Nous Decor)

Where there are trees, there must be forts. Encourage this mentality by providing a tent or teepee for your little one in their forest-y room. It will serve as a reading nook as well as an imagination booster. (via 100 Layer Cakelet)

Looking to create a woodland room for a little girl? Take your inspiration from the glamping style and think pink! Add lace touches where plaid would go. Exchange lifelike stuffed animals for softer plush creatures. And don’t forget the twinkly fairy lights. (via We Lived Happily Ever After)

Kids do grow so fast, so sometimes it is wise to decorate with things that are easily interchangeable. Stock up on patterned contact paper and recreate this tree on your little’s wall. Then, when they get too old, you can easily peel it off in exchange for whatever they would prefer. (via Style At Home)

What kid doesn’t dream of sleeping in a tent under the stars! Give them their own campout every night with a tent-like canopy bed. It won’t matter what other woodsy touches you include in the room because that bed will steal the show. (via Remodelaholic)

So you’re having a baby and you want to give them a woodland nursery, but not so heavy. Grab your color palette and lighten it up a few shades. Minty green can say woodland just as well as emerald. Plus you’ll get to use linen curtains which add the softest rustic feel you’ve ever seen. (via Style Me Pretty)

Chalkboard is still in style and you can see why. A chalkboard wall in a bedroom can easily make it a woodland themed room just by drawing mountains on it. Or an ocean themed room by drawing fish. Or a cowboy themed room by drawing horseshoes. You get the idea. (via Apartment Therapy)

Just because everyone else is going for solid greens and browns in their woodland bedrooms doesn’t mean you have to as well. Load up with wood patterns and aztec patterns and stripes and spots and you’ll find a forest fit for the pages of a Dr. Seuss. (via Apartment Therapy)

When you think of forest animals, rabbits invariably come to mind. And when we think of rabbits and kids rooms, it all comes down to Beatrix Potter. No one does rabbits better than the authoress, so don’t be afraid to go all Beatrix in your child’s woodsy bedroom, complete with Peter Rabbit murals. (via 100 Layer Cakelet)

Wallpaper comes in all different colors and patterns so it’s a simple solution to make big woodland impact. Just find one with plants and animals that fit your color scheme and paper away. It will make one big wall of woodsy art that you won’t regret. (via Le Petit Florilege)

What if you’re trying to decorate a nursery in a rented home where you can’t paint or wallpaper or any of those big changes? Prints are definitely the way to go. Curate a collection of animal prints and nature quotes and create a gallery wall that will make you want to go for a walk in the woods, even if the rest of the bedroom is white.
