They are oh-so-cute to us moms and delight our wee ones as well. No need to go all out with bedding, valences, rugs, and the like.  Keep it simple and just focus on wall accents or wall decor to get that playful look in your baby's room. We found these fabulous monkey canvas wall hangings created by artist Marnie Vollenhals. Marnie sells her work at J.AustinRyan, the company she cleverly named after her three sons Jacob, Ryan, and Austin.  Ms. Vollenhals comes from a family of artists and describes her art as fresh and new with its clean lines and bright colors. Her hand-painted designs are a combination of modern, retro, and classic style art. If you are not inspired by the jungle, rainforest, or safari angle, consider the paintings featured here depicting out-of-the-box monkey fun. These monkeys aren't jumping on the bed.  These modern monkeys are snowboarding, biking, and taking off in rocketships. The rocketship painting would be a unique and creative way to further embellish your space themed nursery. The brightly multi-colored monkey canvases are a great way to bring liveliness to your nursery walls.  And, they will work well should you be decorating a color-themed nursery or child's room using blue, red, green, or orange. The canvases would also bring life to a playroom. Each piece of wall art is painted with acrylic paints and are gallery wrapped on 100% reclaimed canvas. The pieces are 20" x 20" and sell for $140 each. See our other ideas for animal-themed wall hangings and unique nursery wall decor.
