Step-by-step guide

Nature lovers and explorers alike will find plenty of adventure in this jungle-inspired bedroom scheme. Bursting with vitality and lush greens, this scheme is sure to help them grow and discover their full potential through play. Besides, who wouldn’t want to wake up in an Amazonian rainforest every morning?

Use this step-by-step guide to create a rainforest backdrop fit for your king or queen of the jungle:

Jungle how 1

1) Paint your chosen base colour and allow it to dry.

2) Measure and mark three horizon points on either side of the wall using a coloured chalk.

3) Cut two pieces of lining paper the length of the wall and tear them both into two horizontally. This creates a torn edge with a wavy line.

4) Line up the torn edge with the top horizon mark (keeping the untorn edge uppermost) and then fix it into place using masking tape (you are going to use the torn edge as the first distant jungle horizon).

5) Use a small paint roller to run over the torn edge and paint down the wall to just beyond the next horizon line. Allow to dry.

6) Once the wall is dry use a new piece of torn paper with a different shaped edge to create the next horizon in the mid tone colour. Repeat this to the floor with the deepest shade.

7) And finally, just add monkeys, elephants, parrots and any of your favourite jungle animals to complete the look.
