Baby Boy Nautical Nursery


Having never had kids before, I didn't really know what I was doing when I went about designing a nautical nursery.  I wanted something simple but cute!  I will still add more to the nursery when the baby comes and we finalize his name.  For now, I'm pretty happy with it!

Design Inspiration

I grew up in South Lake Tahoe and spent a lot of time on a boat.  I wanted to bring a little of Lake Tahoe to Los Angeles.  I hope that my little boy develops a love for the water and being on a boat!

Decorating Style

Simple, cute, and organized!

Project Details

I compiled all of the stuff for the nursery at different places.  Some things I found at local shops, other things I found at places like TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Pottery Barn Kids.

Favorite Items

I think my favorite thing is the little striped whale in the crib.  It was a gift from my family.


Once you figure out what you want to do, start early and keep your eyes open wherever you go.  I found cute things in the strangest places!

I love your nautical themed nursery! We are expecting our first this summer and are currently decorating his nursery in a nautical them as well. I'd love to find the "poop deck" basket you showcased. Do you have a link where I can purchase it? Thanks!
