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.

    Thanks, Jess! The buckets are from The Dollar Tree-would you believe they have amazing storage buckets?! All different sizes, shapes, and colors. And the chalk labels came from Etsy.

    Hi Tfarm! The wall color is Sweet Rhapsody by Behr at the Home Depot. It’s even better in person!

    Where did you get the pattern for the bedding set and where and how much material would I need?

  11. 11

    The fabric was purchased at a local fabric store, but you can find similar, if not the same, through online fabric stores like or The crib sheet came from PB Kids. For the bumper you need about 2 1/2 yards and for the skirt, about 2 yards depending on your drop. Hope that helps!

    Ashlee, Thank you! I purchased two of the pillows from, and the third(the one to the right with the whale applique) I made myself. You can find the fabric for the one I made myself on

    I am curious to know the paint color on the walls??? Everything looks fabulous and it’s so inspirational. Oddly enough my sons name will be Mason as well and we have decided to do a preppy nautical theme and came across your Mason’s room and thought it was perfect!

    Hi! I love this color do you have the actual numbers from the can? We found Sweet Rhapsody but it looks lighter than your room. How many coats did you do? The one we found is 490A-3. Did you do semi gloss or gloss or just flat?

    U did an EXCELLENT job with this room I love it I love it, a being look for this color for a long time can u share with me the name of the color and the numer in the can please!!

    Donna, I don’t have the can of paint anymore, but it looking lighter may just be because of the lighting in my room. We did 2 coats of paint over a previously white wall. I believe I did an eggshell, just a bit more than flat, but not a semi gloss. Hope that helps!

    Thank you, Antonella! The color is “Sweet Rhapsody” by Behr at the Home Depot. I don’t have the paint can any longer to give you the number on the can, so I hope the paint name will help you out! Best wishes!

    The lamp was from Target, but it has since been recalled. There is a new version there now. Also, there’s a turquoise version that looks almost identical, but at a higher price point from Urban Outfitters.

  27. 27

    What color Turquoise did you use on the walls, where did you purchase the paint from? That is the exact color I want to use.

    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.
