About Us

We are dedicated to helping you decorate your babies’ rooms, whether you are in need of wall art for a newborn baby or for an older child. Finding the latest trends and decor ideas is one of our deepest passions.

About Us

There are many new trends to choose from. We will let you know where these items can be purchased, whether online or in store. It can be difficult to determine which stores are offering the best wall art to suit our needs. That is why we have stepped forward to make this task easier for all of our fellow parents out there.

Our little story

We are Sylvain and Julie, a couple with two children of our own, a little girl and a little boy.

We enjoy art and have the passion for a wide range of design principles. We are curious and sensitive to the details. This is a passion that we are trying to pass down to our little ones. Protecting the environment is also very important to us. We are always on a mission to consume only the products we really need and those that will not end up in the trash after a year.

Therefore, we are trying to live a minimalist lifestyle that allows us to keep in touch with the things that are truly important. Money cannot buy happiness and no amount of material possessions can change how you feel about yourself. Ensuring our family's happiness comes first to us. But let's start from the beginning.

It all started when we meet while we were employed by advertising agencies. Sylvain was an art director and Julie was a project manager. At that time we were both career oriented and on a mission to being the best at what we were doing. We enjoyed each other’s company and felt connected because we shared a similar lifestyle. It was not long before we moved in together.

We were living the dream in our perfect condo with a minimalist architecture, rooftop pool and a 360-degree view of the city. Not long into our relationship, we decided to strike out on our own and start our small advertising agency, hiring employees and giving ourselves the opportunity to travel the world while still continuing to make a solid living. The decision to start our own business was born out of the frustration that comes with chasing a dream that is not wholly your own. Eventually, we realized that something very important was missing in our home. We decided to have children and we were blessed with a little girl. Fourteen months later, our little boy was born.

Our small, trendy condo felt inappropriate for our family so we decided to move outside of the big city. At the same time, we closed up shop to begin working as consultants. That decision took a lot of stress off our shoulders and it felt like we were now able to live a happy family life.

We believe in the importance of setting an example for our children. We spend a great deal of time teaching them how to be themselves, being respectful of others and the environment, being creative and open minded is the most important of all.

Sylvain has always surrounded himself with art. He was crazy about drawing when he was young and so he went to art school. He started as a painter and added a more commercial aspect to his business when he started a custom airbrush company. After 3 years, he decided to become a graphic designer and started making websites. Now, he's managing the Sleepy Monkey website, plus curating the artwork we present.

Julie is the loving mother who always finds ways to stimulate the minds of our children. She’s always pushing the children to play, draw or read (look at) books instead of being passive in front of a screen. If you want to buy a toy for her kids make sure it is an eco-friendly-educational-fun toy.

Today, we put our passion to work and create the Sleepy Monkey website to help other parents make sense of all the different things to buy for our kids on the market.

Why we created this site?

Children have the capacity to see and imagine the world as an extraordinary place with unlimited possibilities. This imagination will fade over time as they will become adults. Art can be the missing link. It stimulates our imagination and makes us dream of those extraordinary worlds.

That is why we love art so much and we think it is important to keep a wild imagination over time.

Children should be provided with the opportunity to make their own decisions, to give them the creative spark that they need to get the most out of their play, whether they are drawing, singing or dancing.

As a result of this mindset, we like to live in a home that is truly reflective of our personality. We know just how difficult it can be to find the proper items to create the perfect decor for our children's rooms. Thanks to our own research, we believe that we have put ourselves in a good position to help your family.

Why it's called My Sleepy Monkey

Our children have a lot of energy and when it comes to play time, they are unstoppable. They are not afraid of testing their limit (and ours at the same time). That's why we like to call them our little monkeys. We are really proud of what they have become and how they have evolved. We like to think that this site is greatly inspired by our experience as the parents of two lovely monkeys.

What can you expect from this website

With our website, you are able to take a closer look at the best wall art selections. These pieces have been hand-picked from a variety of popular websites. We take the time to test each different site and create reviews based on the information that we have collected.

The sleepy monkeys' story

Bo and Dan are two cute monkeys and they live at the Russell’s house.

Bobby Russell loves his pet monkeys. He likes to watch them swing from tree to tree in his big backyard.

Bo and Dan sleep in a tree house in the backyard. It's Bobby’s dad who built the tree house. The tree house has a ladder so Bobby can climb up, and there are ropes so Bo and Dan can swing. Bobby’s dad also puts hammocks up in the tree house so Bo and Dan can sleep there.

Bobby likes to visit Bo and Dan in the tree house. One night Bobby’s mom could not find him.

She called, “Bobby, it is time for bed.” Bobby did not come.

Bobby’s mother called, “Bobby, where are you? It is time for bed.” “Shhhh,” said Bobby’s dad. “Come and see!”

Bobby’s mom looked in the treehouse. Bo and Dan were asleep in their hammock. The two monkeys were sleeping.

“Look,” said Bobby’s mom. Bobby was asleep in his sleeping bag.

“All three of my little monkeys are sleeping.”
