New Release: American Buffalo Close-Up. (Plus a Bonus Makeover.)

We’ve long admired American Buffalo for his dignified presence and quiet grace. And, apparently, so have you — his limited-edition sizes are nearly sold-out. (We’re glad you love him as much as we do.) For those who can’t get enough of him, we’ve got you covered with our newest edition, American Buffalo Close-Up.

For his debut, Sharon looked to Carter Design to put together a room that would compliment his stately splendor. Diffused with natural light and furnished with of our favorite pieces by Matt Monroe of Monroe Workshop, we know Buffalo’s loving the view.

But wait! There’s a bonus: this room is part of a full-house renovation, so we thought it’d be fun to share a little before-and-after — because who doesn’t love a good makeover?

Your eyes are not deceiving you — this really is the same space. In order to balance a disproportionately large dining room, a tiny kitchen, and an oddly-placed closet, the kitchen, closet, and dining area were made into one big, bright room.

This meant removing an entire wall and adding an exposed support header in it’s place. Then, 4″ x 4″ decorative beams were added to the rest of the dining room ceiling to blend the header into the space.

We know, we know — where’s the kitchen? It’s coming later, and it’ll be worth the wait. But in the meantime, let’s settle into this space with our new pal — with the light, the leather, the warm wood tones, we’re more than happy to sit and stay a while.

New! Baby Horse + A Room for Kids

Sharon is always threatening to move The Animal Print Shop to a cabin in the woods, and who knows? Maybe one day she’ll actually do it. In the meantime, her love of nature serves as subtle inspiration for our newest Nursery Project (kids’ room edition)–and we can’t think of a better way to welcome Baby Horse and Baby Horse Little Darling than in this spirited, summer-splashed bedroom, made for play.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Its kid-friendly highlights include sky-blue wallpaper with shapes reminiscent of pine tress, a cozy sand-colored tent, and a chalkboard wall featuring a sweeping sketch of Yosemite Valley (soon to be gone in place of tic-tac-toe boards, ABC’s, and spaceships).

In keeping with the theme of nature, there’s also a rain cloud cushion and a desk made of reclaimed cedar. And above the bed, painted in lake colors, there are six Little Darlings, including our newest, leading the pack.

Baby Deer Joins Our Little Darlings Family in a Spring Inspired Nursery

There’s no time like spring, and for the past couple months, we’ve been relishing its sunshine; its pure, crisp colors; and its new arrivals (birds, bees, budding trees!) as we’ve prepared to announce two of our very own: Baby Deer Little Darling, and a brand-new nursery designed to celebrate what we love most about the season.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

The latest addition to our Nursery Project series features bird-patterned wallpaper in shades of pink and gray; painted trim in robins egg blue echoes a sunny afternoon sky. A trio of familiar faces (with new Baby Deer Little Darling taking center stage) watch over a DwellStudio crib, while a ceramic pendant light by Jonathan Adler allows it all to shine.

Wolf Pups + a room for siblings!

It’s a room that brings the great outdoors in: our newest Animal Print Shop Nursery Project (this time designed for a pair of rambunctious and fun-loving siblings) was inspired by the myriad wonders of nature and the unforgettable experience of camping – the stuff so many sweet childhood memories are made of.

We’re also thrilled to introduce not one but four new prints to inspire the room’s design: Wolf Pup No. 1 and Wolf Pup No. 2Wolf Pup Pairand Wolf Pup Little Darling.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Collaborating with Frances Merrill of Reath Design, who worked her magic using vintage furniture and accessories (bright bohemian rugs and a pair of hardy wooden beds, for example), patterned sheets from L.L. Bean, a beautiful log bench by Animal Print Shop favorites Monroe Workshopand a sturdy camp trunk for the safe stowage of toys to create a rustic, rugged aesthetic. A wash of forest-green paint, a woven hanging chair, and a bright yellow bedside lamp completed the scene. It’s just right, we think, for a pair of prankish pups, ready to play.

Baby Alpaca + another nursery project!

She made her first appearance this winter on Cup of Jo; and today, at long last, she’s ready for her debut. Meet Baby Alpaca, our newest fuzzy, doe-eyed friend. And as if her arrival wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, her much-anticipated debut coincides with the release of our third Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, Desert Modern. 

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

This warm, sunlit room works in harmony with Baby Alpaca’s soft texture and sweet smile. A few of our favorite details are a vintage Moroccan rug, a jet-black Eames rocker, a Calder-style mobile, and a pendant light fixture strung with wooden beads. Oh, and one last extra-charming touch? We snuck in a wall of Little Darlings (look out for a new Baby Alpaca Little Darling  in there too!)

Baby Elephant Nursery Room Sources

We’ve been blown away by the response to this room–it’s such a great feeling. When we came up with the concept for The Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, our goal was to inspire our customers beyond the walls our prints hang on–and based on our inbox over the last week, we’ve acomplished that goal. “Where can I get that whale pillow?”–”what crib is that?”–”where do I find the floating changing table?”–”who makes the rocking chair?”–”what size is the baby elephant print?” Even though the room sources are listed at the bottom of the orginal post, it seems all the photos were too much of a distraction, so we whipped up a quick post dedicated to all the sources right here!

Finally, a baby elephant + a new nursery!

It may be small, but it packs a pretty-and tiny-fisted-punch. Clean, crisp, and sophisticated, baby Dash’s Los Angeles nursery is our second Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the finished room. (See our first nursery project, completed last fall, here.) But first, come on in…

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Dash’s parents, photographers Max and Margaux Wanger, are dear friends of The Animal Print Shop, and we’re longtime fans of the duo’s always-inspiring work. So when the two turned over total creative control of their little one’s room (a cozy nook in the corner of their charming Los Angeles home), we knew we had a welcome challenge on our hands.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Especially exciting for us was the opportunity to design the room around the addition of our very own baby, Baby Elephant – a brand-new, much-anticipated Print Shop family member. “What’s better than a baby elephant?” says Max.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

We teamed up with designer Morgan Satterfield to create a bright, modern space fit for a design-savvy little man-in-the-making. Alongside Baby Elephant, hand-blocked curtains in black and gray, a custom-built floating dresser/changing table, and a modern wooden crib were our centerpieces; a one-of-a-kind mobile, a cheerful whale pillow, and a neon yellow tassel garland made for eye-catching accents.

“We love that Dash has such a colorful and happy space of his own,” says Margaux. “He’s going to love this.” We couldn’t be happier to hear it!

Many thanks to Max and Margaux for letting us take over their house for three days and trusting in us to deliver the goods (sorry about the grass!), The MinimalistOeufOneFortyThree, and especially Morgan Satterfield (we know, she’s a badass.)

New Release: Longhorn Steer Close-up

Known for their iconic horns, which can extend up to 7 feet tip to tip, the longhorn steer is a vision: strong, majestic, and remarkably gentle and sweet-natured for possessing such immense power. Welcome Longhorn Steer–we couldn’t be more pleased to add his peaceful presence to our collection.

New Spring Darlings: Nursery Art

Today marks the beginning of spring, an event we’ve been looking forward to since, oh, the first crisp day of fall. After a long winter (it can get pretty chilly here, even in Southern California), we’re ready to greet longer days and budding flowers. We’re also happy to introduce two new babies to our Little Darlings family. Baby Bunny and Baby Chick are spirited, sparkling, full of life. Just like sunshine, just like spring.
