We wanted to create a nautical oasis for our baby boy, especially since we live on the water.

Favorite Items

Too many to choose.  I adore everything!  But I love that the photo that says "Michael" above his crib was created when I was 29 weeks pregnant.  My husband and I went to East Hampton for our two year wedding anniversary and spontaneously drew his name in the sand.  It was perfect.


Don't be afraid to sprinkle in some eclectic pieces, like the nautical clock and antique boat shelf in my baby's room.  It gives the nursery a personal touch, making it unique.
