Fun Monkeys Modern Nursery


We were called to design a modern nursery for a baby girl and the design starting points were an orange monkey wallpaper and a see through crib. This is all we had to completely transform a guests bedroom into a sweet and fun nest.

Design Inspiration

We used this fun and whimsical¬†monkey wall paper¬†as a our point of departure. We wanted to create a modern, fun yet still elegant nursery. The challenge was to not let the orange become too overwhelming, so neutral blinds and painting some of the walls ‚Äď not fully wall papering the room ‚Äď restrained the colors and patterns from becoming too dominant and created a calm space for the baby girl.

Decorating Style

Modern and elegant.

Project Details

We chose very modern furniture and decor. Our client wanted to have the transparent Roh crib by Spot on Square so we added the Monte Design rectilinear glider combined with more playful elements such as the monkey rug  therefore welcoming the new little one into the world with fun, laugher and love. The animal theme is woven subtly into the room with a fun giraffe lamp and on the walls  funky collage art found from a young artist in Spain that interprets traditional nursery subject matter in innovative mediums and modern.

Favorite Items

We are particularly fond of the tree bookcase and the abstract mobile  both able to create an airy, delicate and youthful feel.

Funny how I was watching reruns of Gossip Girl, and in the early episodes of Season 4, they showed this nursery with the same monkey wallpaper. I thought it was really adorable! And now, I see this wallpaper again. This must be a sign!
