Baboon room

As many of you know we have recently done some redecorating, and made some changes at Baboon HQ.  One of the biggest changes has been the conversion of the dining room to a baboon room.  As you know we do lots of work at Baboon HQ, running a hugging school and re-homing the graduates.  Recently the England football team got a new luxurious head quarters built for them by the Football Association, and we felt that Baboon HQ needed a similar facility.

Our dining room had a dining table and chairs that were never used because we always entertain guests in the kitchen, so the room was wasteds, this presented a unique opportunity for a special baboon facility.

The first thing we decided we needed was a comfortable seating area.  We decided on a futon, it is nice and low and suitable for baboons and doesn't take up a great amount of room, also guest baboons will be able to sleep on it.  We choose this nice red one.

It goes nicely with our favourite baboon colour of red.  We choose the nice blue and white stripped cushions (pillows to our US friends), to contrast with futon and to go with the walls.

As we live by the sea we have a seaside theme to Baboon HQ and we placed our baboon futon below our lovely seaside tiles.

Doesn't that look good and you see baboons can climb on the futon.

Then we thought about seaside themed art.  We found this lovely seahorse in a local shop.  We love him.

He has his own corner of the baboon room and his gentleness is inspirational to the more overenthusiastic baboon trainees.

As baboons we like a lot of space so there are only two other pieces of furniture in our room.  The wooden seat in the corner, I think you can see it in the photo of us on the back of the futon, and our sideboard that we use to store the baboon plates and cutlery.

So you can see that the baboons have a peaceful, inspirational space in which to work and play and lots of space to chill out.  We don't have a dining room but we have a great kitchen so the dining room is better used for us baboons to chill out in.

  9. What a lovely room, Kolo, & so perfect for baboons! The Arsenal-red futon is really beautiful, & Thierry & Denis have been huddled in a corner deep in serious discussion since they saw it *giggles*.

    Love the sea-horse, too - am sure he'll be a kind and soothing influence on the trainees, especially whenever an Arsenal performance is specially hard on the nerves!

    It's a very beautiful room indeed, & perfect for Baboon HQ - I'm sure you'll all be very happy in it :-)

    With lots & lots of hugs from Thierry, Denis & Shayna. xoxoxoxo
