Mason’s Nautical Nursery


A modern nautical nursery for our sweet baby boy, Mason!

Design Inspiration

Inspired by a bright and bold color combination of turquoise and navy blue, this nursery will grow with baby Mason for years to come.

Decorating Style

My decorating style would be best described as vintage/preppy/eclectic. I love mixing old with new, and having a bright, cheerful feeling throughout my house.

Project Details

Most all of the other items were handmade by me and my husband. We installed hardwood floors in the nursery, hand painted the vintage dresser and hand stenciled vintage wardrobe. After searching on Pinterest for a couple of DIY built in storage bench tutorials, we tackled our very own built in window seat in the dormer window.  The pillows are a mix of handmade and store bought from around town. Bedding and window treatments were also custom made.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the nursery is the hand painted vintage dresser. I have admired these for years, and to find one for our baby boy's nursery was just perfect! It adds the perfect amount of vintage flair, with a stylish modern feel as well.  Not to mention the storage it offers for a room that is so small.


I found it most helpful to create a Pinterest board for this nursery, so as I was going along throughout the months finding new pieces for the nursery, I could pin them and see how they all coordinated together.  A lot of great items never made the cut this way, but it was worth it in the end to have a cohesive look to our nursery.  Also, since many of the fabric items were custom made, I had swatches that I carried around in my purse and could color match if I was in a store and thought something would work well in the space.

What did you use for the drawer liner/chevron print?

Hi Amber, The drawer liners used are made by Macbeth. I found them locally at Marshall's a few years ago, but I believe they can still be found online.
