Description

My husband is from the Caribbean so I wanted a beautiful ocean theme for our son. This room was previously an indoor greenhouse (hence all the windows) so the floor is slightly angled and has a tile floor. This was completely redone and I installed carpet and lots of elbow grease.

Design Inspiration

I love the print of the Great Wave of Kanagawa, so I used this as inspiration for the entire room after I found a company that could custom make the decal for me. I wanted blues like the ocean and used the orange/copper and black as accent colors.

Favorite Items

I love the decal and the orange monster octopus that I made for him. I also really love the original artwork of the crabs in the beeswax. My father died before he was able to meet my son so I kept all of his neckties and made the curtain for one of the windows and the window tie backs out of his neck ties. I love that something of my dads is with my son. My mom was generous enough to make the wave print quilt, bed skirt, and curtains.

    Oh my goodness, this is such a statement nursery! I love the Great Wave of Kanagawa myself and I think it’s such a bold move to have it as accent on one wall. Lucky you to have found this wall decal!

    I got this from an etsy seller (stickerbrand) for only $85!

    I think using your father’s ties as curtains for the windows is such an amazing idea. It’s a great way to incorporate your father’s presence into the room.
