Baby Zebra + A Pretty in Pink Nursery

To introduce the newest addition to our menagerie of baby animals, Baby Zebra, we sought to design a feminine nursery of soft pink, natural materials, and wood tones. For Baby Zebra’s nursery (the eigth in our Nursery Project series) Sharon drew inspiration straight from Baby Zebra –“She’s so sweet and if you look at her stripes where the white and black meet, she almost looks pink!” Says Sharon of her newest muse.

Designing the room in layers as she always does Sharon continues:  “I knew I wanted a wallpaper to compliment Baby Zebra without competing with her stripes or soft feel. The perfect wallpaper would be a tonal pink with a subtle pattern so it wouldn’t distract the eye from Baby Zebra.” Kremelife had the perfect palette and a pattern that fit the bill in their Diamondettes line.


And, for a touch of sophistication, Sharon adorned the dresser with a vintage brass tea light globe. “The globe light is on a dimmer and fills the room with a soft glow.” Perfect for taking advantage of the curated library and reading a bedtime story in the coral colored Togo chair by Ligne Roset. The sisal rug “really ties the room together,” kids Sharon ala The Big Lebowski. The space called for a round rug and she found the perfect one at West Elm.


With a nod to Safari themes, Baby Bengal Tiger, Lion Cub, Baby Monkey, and Baby Elephant hang above an Oeuf Rhea crib. “I’m kind of obsessed with macrame right now.” Sharon confesses. “I discovered Sara of The Forest Fern, who makes the most beautiful pieces, including the lantern style we selected for this space.”


The crib sheet is handmade by Petal and Branch. “It was a perfect match to the wallpaper without being too ‘matchy-matchy’, but still similar – I really love the soft feel and color.” Of the blanket, softies and trash can, Sharon explains, “The last details for me are not afterthoughts, but the final layer.” We love the blanket’s little pop of bright pink, and the two rascals in the crib: you can almost hear them scheming!

Alyssa Rosenheck Photography + Baby Harley’s Designer Nursery

Our customers often ask if it’s okay to group horizontal and vertical prints. Well, designer Andria Fromm artfully answers that question with an Animal Print Shop feature wall in Baby Harley’s nursery beautifully photographed by Alyssa Rosenheck.



Designed last fall by interiors expert Andria Fromm of REDO Home & Design, baby Harley’s nursery is playful, but still manages to be soothing and stylish, cozy and composed with crisp details. “Harley’s mother knew what she was having,” says Andria, “but we didn’t want the room to scream ‘boy.’ The process was more about mixing prints and patterns, textures and fabrics, wallpaper and artwork, so that the room could grow with the baby over the years.”




“We started by selecting a color palette based on the ottoman fabric,” Andria continues. “It had these great rust tones, with gold and navy. I love pulling inspiration from a pattern.” Other details close to the designer’s heart: grasscloth wallpaper from Cowtan & Tout; a multihued pom-pom mobile (made by mom); and a sweet, snug reading nook. “Children need small spaces to tuck into,” she says. “They’re comforting.” We especially love the Devon crib in deep blue, which converts to a toddler bed. We also can’t help but wonder where the little coral colored doors lead!



And what about the set of six Animal Print Shop baby animal pals keeping watch on the wall above the dresser? “They’re the main feature,” Andria says. “We wanted to create a wall of interest, so we started with the grasscloth and layered with modern frames filled with Sharon’s beloved animal photography. Mixing both horizontal and vertical formats give the space a lovely element of interest and works so well with the elevation change in the ceiling. Harley’s brother, Barrett, loves all the baby animal prints most. He always wants to go in and look at them — and he’s learned quite a few of his animals based on that wall. He’s obsessed with Baby Monkey Little Darling in particular — every time they pass by, he has to say hello.” How sweet is that?

New Babies: Bengal Tigers

The balmy days of summer are behind us and we’re cozying up to the crisper conditions with this modern cabin-inspired room, the latest in our ongoing Nursery Project series. Happy, homey, and handsomely appointed, it’s perfect for welcoming two brand-new babies to our Print Shop family: Baby Bengal Tiger No. 1 and Baby Bengal Tiger No. 2


Bathed in a serene deep blue (Benjamin Moore’s Blue Note, to be exact), the space features a fireplace on a wall of wood siding, a built-in changing table, and a host of gender-neutral accents, including a pair of brass and wood mobiles by Print Shop favorites Julie Burton and Fort Makers. It’s enough to keep our tiger cubs (and their tiny bunkmate) enveloped in warmth that’ll last through winter—and well beyond.

Second in our brand-new series of print-and-wallpaper pairings: the vibrant Apothecary’s Garden pattern from Trustworth Studios as backdrop for our sprightly Baby Horse. Originally designed in 1926 by famed English designer CFA Voysey, it’s full of life, color, and nature-inspired detail — just right, we think, for Wolf Pup, Baby Monkey, and Baby Fox Little Darling, too.

Nursery Design: Catarina’s Corner.

Awash in calming neutrals, baby Catarina’s Brooklyn nursery looks like a perfect setting for peaceful play. “Catarina’s parents love to travel, and have always had a special place in their hearts for animals,” says Chelsea Reale, one-third of the team behind children’s interior design firm Sissy + Marley. “That, along with the soothing color palette, was the inspiration for the space.”


With Sissy + Marley’s new ZEE wallpaper making its debut as its backdrop, the designers added an assortment of cheerful accents to bring the room to life — including five little faces we happen to know well. “We adore the Baby Elephant print, and can never resist using it,” Chelsea says. “The built-in shelves seemed like a clever space for him to live.” Meanwhile, Baby Giraffe Little DarlingBaby White Tiger Little DarlingBaby Alpaca Little Darling, and Baby Monkey Little Darling keep watch nearby.

 ”Catarina’s big sisters — and the entire family — were over the moon,” says Chelsea. “And, of course, the animals made everyone’s hearts melt, as they always do.”




A big thank you to Chelsea, Rachel, and Diana of Sissy + Marley for sharing!

Our Newest Addition: Baby Wallaby.

In keeping with tradition, The Animal Print Shop is celebrating the release of its newest addition — bright-eyed Baby Wallaby — with a custom nursery designed to match her energetic spirit.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

When it came to designing the space, Sharon enlisted the help of her close friends Fitz and Su, the husband-and-wife team behind the living design store Fitzsu. In went a dose of gender-neutral color, with wooden wall hooks in yellow and pink; a mobile with a bright constellation of felted spheres; and a white oak crib whose citron support flips over to become a desk (for when sleeping infants transition to student-hood).

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Adding to the atmosphere of lighthearted sophistication: a band of Donna Wilson lambswool animals; a woolen day bed; and smart, recycled-bottle storage bins soft enough for small fingers. (Two Print Shop mainstays — Duckling Little Darling and Baby Kangaroo Little Darling — make appearances, too.) Welcome home, Baby Wallaby.

Boy Nursery: Xavier’s Forest Retreat.

“Xavier is the happiest, smiliest, most gorgeous little boy,” says Melissa Barling of her toddler son, before adding: “Of course, I’m biased. Designing his nursery was a dream.”

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

It was, indeed, in more ways than one. Xavier’s nursery, outfitted in a forest animal theme, is the inaugural project for WINTER*DAISY, a business founded by Melissa that specializes in children’s interior design. “WINTER*DAISY’s aesthetic is serene and modern,” she says. “And it consistently draws inspiration from nature and the outdoors.”

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

Appropriately, Xavier’s cheerfully-colored quarters feature a menagerie of wooden animals perched above the changing table; an assortment of children’s books, with titles including In My Jungle and This Moose Belongs to Me; and four framed Little Darlings: Baby Deer, Wolf Pup, Baby Fox, and Bear Cub. “Xavier absolutely adores animals,” says his mother. “I originally had different art for the wall above the armchair but when I received Baby Fox and Baby Bear in the mail, I had to go back and get two more — I was so blown away by the quality of the images. The room really wouldn’t be complete without them.”

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

“Xavier loves his little forest friends,” she continues. “He’s always putting his arms up for me to pick him up for a closer look. He points and says, ‘Beah’ for Bear, and ‘Dee’ for Deer with a big smile on his face. His twin sisters keep asking when they are going to get baby animals in their room, too.”


“WINTER*DAISY was an idea that evolved over time and is now becoming a reality,” Melissa says. “I’m so excited for what’s to come.” But when all’s said and done, the completion of Xavier’s nursery signifies more than just the beginnings of a business — it’s resulted in what Melissa refers to as “a dreamy space for reading, playing, and peaceful sleep.” It’s also where treasured memories are made. “I love spending time in here with Xavier and his sisters. We sit together, we read,” she says, “just taking in the space.”

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful space with us, Melissa and Xavier! Visit WINTER*DAISY’s website for more, here.

Introducing Baby Rhino in a Soothing California Nursery.

We’re excited to introduce you to the newest member of our family, but we must warn you: He’s a bit of a brute – in the most charming way!

Meet Baby Rhino.


To properly greet our new friend, Sharon designed a soothing California nursery based around pieces she loves. Since launching The Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, folks often seek our advice to help with a design direction for their own nurseries. Our answer is simple: there’s no right or wrong – pick pieces you love and find a way to put them all together. So for Baby Rhino’s Nursery, we followed our own advice.

baby-rhino-nursery-art-decor-bedding-www.theanimalprintshop.com-02 baby-rhino-nursery-design-www.theanimalprintshop.com-02

Without an intentional design direction, Sharon picked the main pieces with one criteria in mind: she was drawn to them: a beautifully simple and affordable Ikea crib; a quirky, plush moroccan rug; a vintage mid-century dresser with clean lines and a touch of brass. Then we used paint color, small accent pieces, and baby basics to thread everything together–ending up with a soothing, sophisticated nursery that lends an element of child-friendly fun.

We’re happy with the result and think Baby Rhino is too! He joins a collection of joyful treasures new and old, including classic books, plush wildlife, wooden toys, and — fancy meeting him here — a familiar little yellow Duckling to keep him company.
