Ford’s Nautical Nursery


Ford's nautical nursery is nautical without taking it overboard. The color scheme is turquoise, navy, grey and white with silver metallic accents.

Design Inspiration

Our family loves the Texas coast and coastal design. My husband is an avid fisherman and boater so this theme was perfect.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is diy eclectic. I love to find pieces in resale shops or on craigslist that I can makeover. I'm an amateur sewer so I enjoy to make simple projects like the curtains.

Favorite Items

I love how the world map turned out above the crib. I found the digital print on Etsy and added the text myself. I printed it on canvas as OfficeMax and framed in out on the wall with trim. I am proud of all the DIY projects.


I started with a color in mind Turquoise and went from there. I started with the textiles and then figured out the details (art work, décor, furniture) after. It was so fun and Ford loves his room.
