Nursery Trend; animal photography

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

If you spend a lot of time looking at nurseries online you quickly become aware of growing trends.  And over the past year or so I have noticed how many nurseries were featuring not just any animal photography but Sharon Montrose animal imagery. Sharon Montrose is a highly sought after animal photography specialist who is lucky enough to combine her love of animals with her love of photography.. surely life doesn’t get better than that.  Prints are available from her specialist online store The Animal Print Shop.

 

Artwork featuring Sharon Montrose photographyHer distinctive style lends it self to many areas of the home, however it is interesting how popular they have become in nurseries.  Animal motifs in the nursery is definitely not a new thing however I think that the interesting part is that as the trend for more sophisticated children’s spaces grows , these photographs allow the animal motif to be introduced in a more subtle , grown up fashion.

I love how the camel with the choice of light fitting gives a very exotic feel. This is actually part of one of my all time favourite nurseries which I have featured on here before here.  I actually used the feature wall as inspiration for my own daughters nursery and we have also used a SM print..but you will have to wait till we get it photographed properly to see it.

I have also noticed that they are perfect for use in a gender neutral nursery.. look at the nursery above.  This is a very simple and sophisticated space with a tribal/african safari vibe which would be at home in any adult space.

I have added many more images to my unisex pinterest board for you to discover and you will probably uncover a few more gems in my other boards too..or just head over to “The Animal Print Shop‘ to see their full range.

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.

Elephant Nursery Range

Pachy elephant nursery range by Alphabet Monkey, www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

I wanted to share with you the lovely new photographs of our upcoming Pachy the Elephant nursery range in mint green and grey.

They are currently available for preorder and are proving quite popular so far.

The photos were taken for us by local photographer Jade Flores of Jade Flores Photography. Jade is very clever and specialises in portrait photography.

As you can see the quilt is a generous size tucking right down on a standard size mattress..but it should be great for a boori size also but just not tucking down quite as far.

The range includes the quilt with our signature hand stitched felt appliqué elephants.  The inner is 100% natural cotton and has a lovely drape.  It has a little more weight in it than dacron or polyester type batting but I think it actually feels a little more substantial and adds to making a high quality product.  That is why I’ve stuck with it instead of switching to cheaper options..I think you will feel the difference.

So other items in the range include the patch cushion cover, the chevron cushion cover, the bunting flags, the little elephant toy buntings, the hand made elephant toy and it also matches with our grey chevron fitted sheet which coordinates with all our current ranges.

Of course all these items are also available individually.

Update..yellow and grey elephants

yellow nursery ideas featuring alphabet monkey elephant quilt

Morning all,

Just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know where I’m at.   I have made up a new 1014 version of the yellow and grey elephant quilt and am now taking orders here.  I know many of you have been waiting on this.

I do also have some small yellow chevron on its way so it will also be incorporated into the quilt.  I’m sorry its taken me so long but I’ve been feeling frustrated and anxious this month waiting for people to deliver on promises made in regards to fabric supply and samples for our new ranges.  I am just so keen to get them all out there to you .  But this has to be a lesson in patience I guess..something I’m not that great at.

So I will continue to keep you up to date with things as soon as I know things are actually happening..aahh!!

I did make you this little board to show you the quilt patterns.. And some cute items for a yellow and grey nursery.

2. Incy Interiors  Harry Cot , they also have it in yellow.

On the sewing machine today…yellow and gray elephants

A sneak peek of what I’m up to today….sewing has been cut short when I had to pick the monkey up from pre school with a temperature..he seems fine now..I think I had overdressed him with a thermal and many layers all ready for the cold wind outside which he refused to take off.

I am really loving this yellow and gray colour scheme and especially the funky addition of the chevron. Will be a story with chevron quilt , cushion and bed skirt available too.
