Blue and Gray Whale Themed Nursery


Blue and Gray Whale Nursery

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for this nursery came from the Land of Nod bedding. The design is a mixture of stripes, polka dots and whales. The deep blue color in the closet and the bench cushion was chosen to match the bedding.

Decorating Style


Project Details

I've always loved the look of the gray and white horrizontal stripes on the walls. We painted the walls before we knew it was a boy knowing the accent color in the closet would be pink or blue. I originally wanted to put letters above the crib, but after a recent earthquake in Napa, we decided against hanging anything above the crib. My husband is not a fan of decals ;-)

Furniture, rocking chair, whale mirror and rug: Pottery Barn

Bedding: Land of Nod

Whale wall art, wild thing wall art, crib pillow, door block letters, whale puzzle on shelf: Etsy

Favorite Items

My very handy husband built the window bench and I made the pillow covers and bench cushion. My second favorite thing are the little nike shoes which were my husbands when he was a baby
