Just Monkeying Around


A calming playful nursery outfitted for two twins.

Design Inspiration

My client was looking for a calming gender neutral nursery for her two twins.  She did not know the sex of the children until they were born (they ended up being girls).  The parents had traveled to Indonesia years back and love elephants and monkeys. Since they were having twins we thought it would be fun to have two little monkeys swinging from the mural tree.  

Decorating Style

The client's decorating style has a modern eastern vibe.  Since the clients live blocks from the beach, we chose white furniture to brighten up the nursery.

Project Details

Cribs: Marlowe Panel Crib from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

Dresser: Andie by Newport Cottages

Mirror: Z Gallerie

Bedding: Dylan from Serena & Lily

Rug: Trellis rug from Pottery Barn Kids

Glider: Cottage Recliner by Little Castle in a custom fabric

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room is the tree mural.  It helps create a fun and playful space without being an over-themed room. 


Don't be afraid of using blue as a gender neutral color.

am not a big fan of big stuffed toys like the  elephant you have there... what would be a good substitute for it?  I am in love with the monkeys, they are so cute!

I love the wall mural.  Was this a decal or did you have someone paint it?
