A Mountain Adventure nursery..

Mountain Nursery

I’ve been loving the whole rustic adventure theme coming through in boys nurseries and bedrooms for a while and with the recent arrival of our first Mountain inspired range I thought I should put together a little inspiration board.

I think it’s a look that can be minimalist and monochrome or quite rustic with lots of textures.

I think you really must introduce some wood into the space..these tree stump stools or little tables are just perfect.  I think they look great painted too .

Our In the Wild Range features mountains, bears and arrows, all of which look fantastic mixed into this theme.

I’ve also put together a few boards on pinterest where you can find our sources and also other inspiration for your mountain adventure themed nursery or boys room.

You can find our pinterest boards HERE

Just FYI .. you can easily create a mountain feature on your wall like we did by using wash tape..or actually I’ve just done another using electricians tape in black..it seems to come off the wall easily without taking the paint off.. great if you are renting.

In the Wild..Mountain Quilt Range

In the Wild Range featuring Mountain Quilt and Roary the Bear. Limited edition. www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

Hot on the heels of our recent look at the Mountain mural trend,  I’m excited to share with you our new range, In the Wild.

Your little wild one will love imagining climbing mountains and chance encounters with roaring bears (well our Roary is more cute than scary but don’t tell him that),  and cuddling up next to pretend campfires with his hand stitched mountain quilt.  Get him a name cushion to finish the look which will grow with him from the cot to the big bed.

And we will be offering an awesome bonus during the first preorder week available only to our VIPs. So if you aren’t one already better hop onto the mail list now .

In the Wlld; mountain range www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

In signature Alphabet Monkey style we love to create fresh and contemporary looks with our patchwork, we love mixing our arrows with our geometrics and we love to see how you mix it up too.

They are destined to become a keepsake that will always remind you of these baby days.

Our cot quilts are made in an XL size which is 100cm x 130cm.  This will fit any cot you have so don’t worry about the sizing.

You can create a mountain on your wall too with a roll of masking tape.  I had this blue tape in my cupboard and  did a quick DIY on the wall. So easy yet such an effective look…Why not give it a go?

We know how much you love the Roary Range in black so we are bringing him in grey to complement the blues of the Mountain quilt.  Perfect for gender neutral looks or to add some black if you love monochrome.

For extra warmth we recommend layering up with our Cotton jersey cot blanket.  Pictured below  our cot blanket is perfect from birth as you can tuck baby in tightly as per SIDS guidelines and it will grow with him.  We also use ours as a travel blanket, play mat, tv watching blankie (for me that it).

Preorders start Sunday 22nd

Baby Girls Teepee Nursery Range

Have you seen our Boho Teepee range for girls?? All in our online store now .. #alphabetmonkey #teepee #bohonursery #pinkteepee #girlsbabyquilt #babygirl

I was going through my blog and realised that I had failed to share many of our updated and newly released ranges.  Did you know that we recently released a girls version of our popular Teepee Patchwork quilt?  Well probably not so I’m sharing it today with you…..

These patchwork style quilts are not only beautiful but so useful… don’t limit yourself to keeping it in the nursery.  They double as play mats, travel rugs, cuddling on lounges , rolling up into your baby bag..it goes on. And the best thing is that they can be handed down or kept as a keepsake which is what we have been hearing back from our mums.

View the range HERE..

Our teepee range is perfect for a boho inspired nursery, with our perfect shade of peachy pink and muted greys it will be gorgeous in most nursery spaces.  Add a little dreamcatcher, some natural  elements and a little teepee and she will be in boho heaven.

We now have the standard size pillowcase available in the black and the pink for use as bub gets a bit bigger (over 12 mths) and wants a pillow.  You can also mix and match with our cushions and blankets for a big bed too.

You can also see that our ever popular custom name cushion looks cute in a matching shade of pink.

 

This lovely nursery pic of our girls teepee patchwork quilt was taken by Belinda Nihill from Nest Design Studio.  I hope to feature some of her lovely kids rooms on here soon.

Indis’ Black and White Nursery

Bear Quilt cover by www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

Monochrome nurseries are popular for boys but how about adding a girly touch to our Bear bedding.

You may not have thought of using this for a girl but we just love this gorgeous black and white nursery belonging to a sweet little girl named Indi. It really shows how unisex this black and white linen can be.  And of course it doesn’t look like the monochromatic trend is going anywhere fast.

Indi has a very clever mum, Kat who happens to be the brains behind Chuck and Taz. If you haven’t pimped out your pram with a liner from Chuck and Taz you better head there now. They specialise in super cool pram liners in unisex prints for boys and girls.

So our Black Bear range is available in Quilt covers/duvet covers in both single bed and cot sizes.  It features the bear print of the top and the black arrow on the reverse.  We also have the co- ordinating cot fitted sheets available in bear, white arrow and black arrow prints which are extra large so they will fit your larger cot mattress like a boori.

Raaah!!!

We named this little guy Roary thanks to a suggestion on Instagram by one of our lovely followers.  He was hand drawn for us by Australian artist Pete Cromer. You can check out his work here.

Whale quilt is back..

moby whale range www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

 

When I first started Alphabet Monkey nearly five years ago I made a whale quilt.  Little did I think that all this time later that I would still be getting requests for it.  I guess a nautical vibe in the nursery never goes out of style.

There has been many incarnations of that original whale quilt and now we are bringing it back with a fresh geometric edge.

This item has been handmade to my design specifications by my fantastic sewers in Indonesia. Our fabrics are screen printed by hand with environmentally safe seaweed gels from Japan.

Our quilt has a layer of cuddly 100% cotton batting sewn in-between the top patchwork layer and the bottom fabric layer.  What makes this a true quilt and not just a blanket as such is that it is then ‘quilted’ together..which means it is sewn around all the squares and borders holding all three layers in place.  You will feel that this has a slightly heavier feel than some quilts..it allows it to feel cuddly and settle around your body.  We prefer this natural batting to synthetic ones as it allows it to breathe avoiding that sweaty feeling.

You can find out more about our processes and our products on our About Page.. we hope this helps explain how we make and price our product.

We expect the whale quilts to arrive in late April so we have opened up preorders.  I’m sure as usual this will be a popular choice.

In the Media

This month we have been lucky enough to have had two media features.

Last week Campbells’ black and white bedroom was featured in the family section of Apartment Therapy, a huge interiors website in the USA.

I showed you all the pics not that long ago so you may have already seen them.

Campbells black and white room www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

We have also had a quilt featured on there a few years ago when I first started out which was a huge thrill. you can check it out here.

We also landed on the pages of designer baby magazine ‘Little One Baby’ in their ‘I love new things’ section.  It is always such a thrill to see your little brand featured somewhere and this magazine is full of beautiful nurseries , parties and stories.  Check out their website here.

Yellow Elephant Cot quilts

Yellow Pachy Elephant quilt by Alphabet Monkey

Morning,

I restocked the store with some more of these yellow and grey Pachy the elephant quilts and thought I had better let you know as they may be the last for the year.  The trend for yellow and grey in the nursery seems to be as strong as ever..it really is a great gender neutral choice. We have looked at this cute colour combo before here and here.

I am planning to do some more in the blue and grey in the next couple of weeks however after that I really need to start packing up my sewing gear to make room for the nursery for the new baby.  The need for nesting is totally kicking in.  I’ll share some of my nursery ideas and inspiration here too.

Im starting to get the aches and pains of pregnancy so I’m going to be on the machine less but we will also soon have our new Elephant range in mint and grey arriving.  This will mark the changeover between me sewing them and having my Indonesian co-op create them for me.

This will allow me to continue creating new designs for you a while while I tend to baby number two.  My goodness…its coming up so fast!!

And we also have these cute little elephant toys and bunting ready to go with it.  You can also find we have some grey chevron fitted sheets and lumbar cushions that will also compliment the range if you were looking for extras.
