Modern Monster Nursery

Our modern monster nursery came together bit by bit... It started with the idea to inspire creativity with the chalkboard paint and moved to include whiteboards as well. Then we wanted to draw off of the grey and white so we searched for simple modern furniture that had white and walnut colours. Finally, the colors of the books and monsters brought the room to its completed state.

What brand and color of paint did you use?

The Chalkboard is Eco-friendly EcosPaint in Chalkboard Slate. The neutral color was original and the white is whiteboard paint from Rustoleum.

If you added stripes, polka dots or other paint effects, tell us how you did it.

All the painting was completed with the help of painters tape. In order to prevent leakage under the tape, matte medium is applied to get the sharp lines required.

What brand of crib did you buy? Where from?

Oeuf Classic Collection - Riva's Eco Store.

What brand of nursery furniture did you choose? Where did you buy it?

The crib, change table, bookshelf (and toy store in closet) is from Oeuf. They were purchased from various online retailers. The bookshelf is Nurseryworks from Westcoast kids and the chair is Dutailier from Westcoast kids as well.

What nursery bedding set did you use? Where did you buy it?

The bedding and change pad is Nook Pebble Pure Sleep system bought from Westcoast Kids. We also have a blanket from Bla Bla and a sheep skin that was treated for infant care provided by a local wool store.

Tell us about your window treatments, nursery lighting, rugs, wall decor and accessories. Where did you buy them - were any handmade?

The light is a Sputnik light that can be purchased through Restoration Hardware.

The Felt Rug was

purchased in Nepal.

The name is in frames purchased from Chapters.

The picture above the bookshelf is hand embroidered in Egypt.

Most of the stuffed animals are either Ugly Doll or Bla Bla (including the mobile and the giant "zook").

The blanket is Faux Chinchilla from Restoration Hardware.

The heater/fan is from Dyson.

The nightlight is oxo candela tooli.

The blocks are from various collections manufactured by Uncle Goose.

How did you store all your baby goodies? In baskets, on shelves?

All diapers/changing gear is in the change table with many of the clothes, pacifiers, swaddles, etc. All larger blankets are kept in the main linen closet. Bookshelves store most books and "classic" toys. Inside closet, Oeuf Toy Store holds all additional baby goodies and gear.

How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part?

It took about 3 months of waiting for various parts to arrive from different sites. It was an amazing project to complete as a couple waiting for our first baby boy to arrive. The best part was waiting to see what would come each day... the knock on the door always brought excitement.

Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do?

We designed and completed the nursery together as a couple using inspiration from our travels and the feel we have through the rest of our house.

What do you love most about your little one's finished baby room?

We love everything!!! We just sit in the room and enjoy it while we wait for our little one to arrive. We feel that it is the most unique room we could have ever created and hope that it will inspire him as he grows.
