The colors of the forest
Obviously, greens in all their shades are essential for a forest decor. From light moss green to deep forest green, passing through soft sage green, do not hesitate to vary the pleasures.

- Fall colors such as russet, orange and gold can add a touch of cheerfulness.
And if you want more, feel free to add a little red, blue, yellow, etc. After all, in the forest, there are mushrooms all crazier than each other!

One thinks of course of the patterns of trees and leaves , whether stylized or realistic. Forest animals such as deer, squirrels, owls, foxes, but also insects can be depicted in a playful and adorable way, stimulating the child's imagination.
Also think of the patterns of wild flowers, mushrooms or butterflies which will bring a touch of lightness and poetry to your decor.
To create a real forest atmosphere , prefer natural materials that evoke the raw and wild aspect of the forest.
Wood is the material of choice , whether for furniture, toys or decorative accessories. Choose light wood species such as pine, beech or birch for a Scandinavian atmosphere , or opt for darker woods in an enchanted forest.
For fabrics, think of linen, cotton and wool, soft and warm materials. Rattan and wicker can also bring a lot of authenticity and charm to interior decoration.
