Camden’s Nautical Nursery


This contemporary nautical nursery was designed for my baby boy Camden. Most of the nursery was done before he arrived but the final touches (including personalized touches) came after he was born.

Design Inspiration

My fiancee and I met on a sailing trip 4 1/2 years ago and we share a love for the water and sailing! I knew I wanted a nautical themed nursery but one that would grow with him through the years. It all started with the curtains and took off from there! I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest of course!

Decorating Style

I wanted the room to be "Nautical Chic". My desire was a nautical feel but one that would still fit him when he is a teenager! I would describe my style as contemporary.

Project Details

Furniture is from Pottery Barn Kids. Dresser, nightstand and crib all part of the Larkin collection.

Crib bedding: Harper Bedding from PBK

Boat lamp, rope mirror, storage boats and anchor hooks all from Pottery Barn Kids too

Nautical maps were a DIY project with help from Kristy Cavaretta Designs. The maps are from the sail guidebooks of trips that my fiancee and I went on together.

Artwork above crib from Kristy Cavaretta Designs

Curtains, whale pillow, Where Wild Things prints, changing pad and boppy cover are all from Etsy

Rug is from Flor


Favorite Items

The "bookends" of the project were the curtains and the Camden nautical pillow. They were the first and last pieces to the project and I just love them!

My other favorite items are the prints above the crib. They were designed especially for Camden and his nursery! My wish is that he treasures them as much as I do when he grows up!


Pinterest and Etsy have great ideas! Start with one big item you love and let it flow from there!
