Sophia’s Nursery


Baby Girl's Monkey Themed Nursery

Design Inspiration

I helped my sister design this Nursery for her daughter.  The room had been painted with the monkeys from the previous owner.  We decided to keep them and pull out the brown and pink to make the room more feminine.

Decorating Style

Favorite Items

I would say my favorite are the white curtain panels with the brown ribbon trim that my sister made and my sister would probably say her favorite is the mobile I made for her. 


If you have a mural you are already working with I would stick with graphic prints for bedding and window treatments.  (instead of trying to add more monkeys to the space on bedding, etc. we tried to make it more sophistacated by keeping the monkeys to a minimum)

The room looks really clean and calming. The monkeys are very cute, so the previous owners did a good job with it. I can see that it's a rather small space, and you did well not placing too much decor that would only make the room look too crowded.

The wall with the painted monkeys is simply adorable. I love how the monkeys and the vines were used to separate the blue and green colors on the wall. I like the ladder shelf, too. I have been looking for a ladder shelf myself.
