jungle themed nursery mural

this week, i painted a nursery for a baby girl that has a jungle theme...check it out:


i was basing my painting off of a crib bedding set that my client bought online. another note - this entire nursery was done with no-VOC paint...a first in my book, but i enjoyed it!

anyway, we have a serengeti-style tree, surrounded by a giraffe, an elephant, 2 monkeys, and 2 birdies. there is also a lion on the other side of the wall, that i'll share in a second...

this is the view when you walk into her room from the hallway...just so you have an idea of the layout!

there is also a sun shining on our scene, from above the door:

some detail shots:

i loved how some of the colors had patterns on the blue on the elephant had this graphic stripe, and all of the yellow things had little polka-dots.

and, i like the giraffe's curly hair-do:


just hangin' out...ahaha...ha

and the monkeys have little sideways smiles that are cute!

across from the mural, right when you walk in the door, i did a small lion. he might just be my favorite part :)


don't you think he's probably a friendly lion? i think yes.

here is the whole room view again:


  1. That is so adorable Kristen, great job!!!

  2. Awesome! The lion is my favorite, too. How long does it take you to paint something like this?

  3. thank you!

    anacelie - it took about a day and a half..

  4. The elephant is my fav! I love the stripes!

  5. The graphic patterns on the animals are so cute! Beautiful job!

  6. well, I see you were inspired by the customer's bedding but I must say, this reminds me of the bedtime animal stories we used to enjoy. :)
    great job..

  7. haha, you are right, dad. there was an alligator, but we didn't do him! :)

    thanks, you guys!

  8. I admire how you can paint in so many different styles, these jungle critters are curved and fun and perfect for a baby's room. Great job as always :)

  9. This is one of my favorite kid themes you've done! I love it!

  10. You are SO CRAZY TALENTED!!! You blow my mind Kristen!
