Getting motivated with the '5 Little Monkeys' song?

Animals are an all time favorite for parents going for gender neutral looks in the nursery. Of all the animals there are, the monkeys are by far the desired choice. If you have decided to lose the jungle and keep the monkey, we have some cool ideas to jazz up the baby room.

1. Choosing the Colors

Think monkeys and immediately green walls swim into your mind. If that is not your preferred choice, try some neutral shades of cream or beige. A sky blue wall would draw attention to the tree branch with hanging monkey mural.

A light yellow wall with squares and circles in soft green shades at different levels framing different wall art décor would create a unique look for the room.

2. Finding Inspiration

Pick the bedding first. This is the standard response when you look for inspiration for the monkey nursery. Are you heading off towards the Papagayo bedding collection or the sock monkey bedding collection already?


Wait! What if you found a must-have Monkey Wall Art and matched the bedding set to that instead? A neutral baby bedding would go a long way after the monkey stickers were taken down. (The Monkey Business Collection From Bebe Chic is a great case in point)

3. Monkeying around the Nursery

Hang a monkey wall clock, nail in a monkey memoboard, spell your baby's name, add a night light, lay a nursery rug or simply hang a Monkey Tree Mobile. These are standard items easily available online with the click of a button.

For on the go moms and dads, we suggest Graco Pack n Play.

4. Monkeys in the Bathroom

Carry the monkey nursery theme into the bathroom. Peek-a-Boo Monkey Shower Curtain and a Monkey 3-pc. Towel Set would brighten up the room and make bath-time fun for your little one. Add a Monkey Business Wall Decals (you could use it in the nursery as well, to tie the two rooms together). Although you won't be using most of these items right away, you might want to hoard them now for use when your baby gets to toddler stage.
