The One With the Monster Mash Nursery

For those of you who don't know, we're expecting our second baby, a little girl, in about 9 weeks. Now that the holidays are over, it's time to get busy getting ready for the new little bundle of joy. Back before we knew if we were having a boy or a girl, I was brainstorming nursery ideas. So, for the next five days I'm going to post some of my favorite ideas, revealing the mood board for our daughter's nursery at the end. The main point of this is to share some of my favorite ideas I've seen in blogland, and of course the zillions of adorable children's art I've spied on Etsy. If only I had room for it all!

This nursery idea was inspired by some fabric I picked up at Joann's a few months back and turned into this blanket:

I just love the idea of a fun monster-themed room - and the color choices are endless, which I also like. So... if we were having a boy I might create a room similar to this (click to view better quality):

  1. These monster canvases are just adorable! Each one of them is created made-to-order by What Is A Grit on They can even be personalized with names and custom colors. Canvas art is particularly nice for a baby's room - you don't have to worry about broken glass if it were to ever fall.
  2. The Geo-Brights bedding collection by Sumersault Baby is so fun and vibrant.
  3. I've been loving the Lauren 4-in-1 Crib by Graco (in Espresso).
  4. The Stork Craft Tuscany Glider and Ottoman in Espresso is great. I have one that is similar and it is so comfortable - a must for long nights.
  5. Of course, no monster-themed nursery would be complete without a stuffed monster like this one.
  6. This cute pillow is part of the Geo-Brights bedding collection listed above.
So there you have it! A Monster Madness Nursery.

P.S. These monster-themed art prints would also be fun...
