Lullaby Paints did an awesome nursery board inspired by the childhood classic book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Their inspiration became a Pinterest sensation, so when it was time to do November’s nursery board, they challenged me to see what my “Where the Wild Things Are Nursery Inspiration” would look like. I think we went just far enough into the theme to make is recognizable, without taking it overboard, and the result is a really great modern nursery!
We used Moonstone as the base color for the space. It’s a beautiful warm gray that goes wonderfully with green and has a glow of moonlight and twilight about it which feels like the darkening evening in Max’s room.
I do want to mention that the Max doll is not currently available, but if you copy this design, send photos and I will send you ours!
Also, there’s so much artwork on etsy and beyond that is based on the book, but so much of it is very similar so it’s hard to tell which is an original design and which is a copy. I avoided all these prints in this final design, but if you want to choose your favorite, many of them are on our Wild Things Moonstone Nursery Inspiration Pin Board.

I liked the original patterned panels on the Alto Crib from Spot on Square, but these colorful translucent panels really get my brain buzzing. So pretty. This is a great way to add a modern pop of color to your nursery!
In addition, you can now get the Eicho Collection in gray in addition to white.
Now don’t mind me, I’ll just be putting an Eicho Twin Bed on my new home wish list. I have an almost 10 year old who could use an upgrade!

Pick the eye color, leg colors and cube design for your child’s own little Tegu character.
Add one (or a few) to your Tegu collection today!
As we wrap up our ABC Kids Expo coverage, there are a few new modern furniture collections that I want to be sure that you see.
Finally, another Spanish nursery brand was testing the US waters at ABC Kids. I loved both cribs from Bresole, the Nubol and the Juvi and the rocker was a prototype they’re working on, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for that beauty. As is, it was a little small. I’m 5′ 5″ and the seat seemed a little petite for me.
Aren’t you excited about all the nursery possibilities?!
My favorite new brand discovery from the ABC Kids Expo 2015 was Monica Richards.
The collection includes these great sculptural animals that kids can sit on,
as well as book ends and door stops.
Coming soon from 3Sprouts,
..they’re going to have these adorable diaper stackers…
as well as back seat organizers for the car!
The new patterns from Petit Pehr really caught my eye.

Babyletto is one of the best modern brands from MDB and they always have new nursery offerings to look forward to.
The first attention-getter is the new Hula Crib. This, like other oval cribs, converts from a bassinet to crib.
The Tuba Glider lives up to its namesake. This is a hefty wide glider without a hefty price.
The Macaron Glider and Dottie Bookshelf are two unique nursery pieces that will help make Babyletto one of the most fun and playful nursery brands. There’s also the new Pogo bookshelf that unfortunately I failed to snap a photo of.
I’m looking forward to the Hudson Collection in this beautiful new Washed Natural finish.
Babyletto is also considering new colors for the Spruce Tree Bookcase. It’s currently available in Green and White, but Gray will soon be added and maybe some of these two tone trees.
What piece are you looking forward to in your Babyletto nursery?
