A nautical Inspired room for baby Finley Jacob.
We knew as soon as we were having a boy that we wanted his room to be themed nautical. My husband and I enjoy boating and the outdoors, we really wanted to carry our passion through to his decor. We hope its something he will love as much as we do someday.
We work on a tight budget so the style tends to be somewhat eclectic. We love pottery barn and coastal living, using both as an inspiration we tried to recreate things we've seen in those publications.
The things that we love most about the room were things we made ourselves. The rope shelves were something we saw in pottery barn for $70 retail and we were able to make them ourselves for under $30. We used boat cleats purchased at a marine supply store to hang the boat artwork above the crib. The "eyebrow" above the window was constructed by my husband. I love how the tin roof makes you feel like you could almost be outside.
My favorite item is the vintage boat throw cushion that we use as a pillow for the rocking chair. It was found by a friend in his storage shed. It adds tons of character and didnt cost us anything.
Get creative. It doesnt have to be expensive to look cool. Bring the outdoors in by using unexpected textures and items.
