Description

Our current home has just 2 bedrooms, so when we found out we were having a boy I knew I wouldn’t be putting together a nursery just for him. A shared boy and girl room seemed like a challenge, but I put a lot of thought into making it a space that my girly girl would love while still keeping some boy-friendly areas. My daughter chose the theme, but then I took over from there. She wanted mermaids, so I generalized the theme to make it a little more gender neutral. We went with Under the Sea… mermaids for her and whales for him!

We painted the room a beautiful light aqua color. Most of the furniture was left from my daughter’s original nursery and we added a mini crib for the new baby. The bedding and accessories are a mix of handmade, Target, Pottery Barn, Tiny Prints, and a couple DIY projects. Some of my favorite detail are listed below.

For her:

  • Mermaid Scale coffee filter wall art
  • Big girl bedding of mermaid sheets and a wave quilt
  • DIY bubble chandelier
  • Coral, the handmade mermaid doll
  • “A Mermaid Sleeps Here” pillow (see below to make your own!)

For him:

  • Navy and aqua quilt that was handmade by my aunt
  • Personalized name pillow including all of his birth stats
  • Wood California rattle
  • Customized whale canvas with the quote “Dream Big, Little One”
  • Handmade wood rocking horse that was lovingly crafted by my uncle
  • “You Are Loved by Me” watercolor painting from my baby sprinkle decor
