Mood Board Monday - Chic Monkey Nursery...

I am participating in my second Mood Board Monday today. [Check out my first one here.] Today's party is hosted by Comfort & Luxury and has some amazing mood boards linked. To participate you just had to pick between two beautiful Anthropologie chairs and go from there.
For some reason when I think of really cool chairs I always think about nurseries. [And I swear, I don't even have babies on the brain!] I just think nurseries should always have an incredible chair. Given, generally the chairs are rockers, but just go with me on this one anyways... :)

I chose the Bertram chair because I loved all the colors mixed throughout it. Mommy can snuggle up with her new baby boy and a soft throw from Anthropologie in the beautiful chair and kick up her feet on this fabulous burnt orange ottoman by Williams Sonoma. It is the perfect corner for reading books with a soft yellow rug, white floor lamp and white sleigh side table all from Pottery Barn Kids.
When it's bedtime for baby, he is put to sleep in the combo crib and changer with the mod monkey bedding set from Babies R Us. The coordinating hamper helps keep the room tidy. And to help with organization, the room is filled with a six-drawer dresser and storage unit, both from Ikea. The green and orange Ikea storage boxes hold both necessities and toys, including the adorable memory game.
The room also includes green dot panel curtains from Pottery Barn Kids, the orange tulip pendant and alphabet hooks from Anthropologie and, of course, a plush monkey from Babies R Us.
Thanks for checking out my amateur little mood board. And for some truly incredible boards, be sure to check out the rest of the mood board party! :)


  1. Fun room! I like how you pulled the oranges and greens from the stripes on the chair. The pendant lamp is great and "mom" will surely appreciate that ottoman so she can get more comfortable.
    Thanks for playing, Paige!

  2. What a great nursery! I didn't participate this time, but when thinking about it, I had a hard time envisioning where to put this chair. Your design is perfect. I love the pendent and foot stool. Great job!


  3. Love your nursery design! Love the striped chair mix with the polka dots. Perfect!

  4. I'm a little slow getting back around to see everyone's boards. Think you're the only one inspired to make a nursery...and it's lovely. The chair lends an air of sophistication that keeps it from being too cutesy but the monkeys make sure you know it's for a child. You've shown that it's possible to create a gender neutral room that is inviting and appealing. Lucky baby!
