I'm a first time mom and nursery decorator. I wasn't super impressed with the "boy-themed rooms in a box" options so I created my own design inspiration.
Since we live so close to the water, I wanted to draw inspiration from the beach and boating lifestyle that is already so much apart of our home.
For me, kids room all about color and stimulation. I want to like it as much as they do. It was also important that I stay on budget and use pieces that will transfer well into a toddler room.

You can spend as much or as little as you like, I just opted to pay less. And after 14 months, I still love as much as I did on day 1.
