Los Angeles photographer Sharon Montrose is celebrated for her portraits of animals. Dedicated to making art accessible and affordable, she opened her online showcase  The Animal Print Shop  in 2008. More recently, Sharon has expanded into interior design, working with her team at the Animal Print Shop to create kid's bedrooms and nurseries that are the right setting for her baby animal series. The example shown here, with a play area and sleeping nook, features her work along with a host of accessories sourced on Etsy. The Animal Print Shop team generously detailed many of the sources on their own blog , and we've added a few more options. Here's how to get the look.  Above: A custom bed is set in a decorated nook.
