Description

A classic nursery that combines both nautical & travel inspired elements.  Not wanting anything too theme specific, we incorporated coastal & travel components into one cohesive nursery using muted shades of blue and gray, natural wood tones, & mixed metals.

Design Inspiration

While I was looking for inspiration for my son's nursery, I quickly noticed that I gravitated towards anything with a nod to a travel or nautical vibe.  I was particularly drawn to the coastal style of the Hamptons, which I see as a sophisticated version of nautical design.  My husband’s Lebanese heritage also inspired me to include a couple of pieces that incorporated his Middle Eastern roots as well.  Since we didn’t want a room that was too theme specific, we tried to pull all of these elements together & combine them into one cohesive nursery.

Decorating Style

I would describe our home decor as a blend of classic + contemporary.  I tend to gravitate towards transitional pieces that aren't too traditional or trendy, but fall somewhere in the middle.  I also like more of a neutral color palette.

Project Details

PAINT COLORS:

BOARD & BATTEN WALL: Cool Metalwork Grey (Glidden) REST OF ROOM: Sutton Place Grey (Glidden)

Favorite Items

The reclaimed barn wood shelves & the star ceiling decals are two of my favorite things.  I also really love the items that reflect my husband's Lebanese heritage, including the canvas of Sami's name painted in Arabic & the city map print of Beirut.  Anything that has a personal meaning is always extra special.

Advice

Look for pieces that go together, but don't necessarily 'match' for a more unique & eclectic look. I initially got stuck on choosing a specific nursery "theme", but who says you can't create your own or combine elements of your favorites?!  :)

Also, invest in dual-purpose, gender-neutral large scale items, like a dresser that doubles as a changing table and will grow with your child (and can also be used by future children).  DIY some of the smaller items & always be on the lookout for sales & coupons.

    Hi Julianne – my husband & I actually made the Arabic print canvas. My husband wrote out the script for me on paper, and then I traced it onto a canvas & filled it in with grey paint. :)

    Thanks Kelli! We made the shelves using reclaimed barn wood & IKEA brackets. I did write a blog post on the process & you can read more about how we made them here: http://duoventures.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-nursery-diy-reclaimed-barnwood.html#.WBEjf-ArI2w

    Unfortunately, we purchased the light several years ago & so I have no information on it. The only thing I remember is that we purchased it from either Home Depot or Lowe’s. I’m sorry I don’t have any more info on it for ya!

    Hi Caroline – the glider is from Walmart. It’s called the Newco International Grand Bella Velvet Glider. We got ours in the ‘beige’ color. :)
