Michael’s Nautical Oasis


We wanted to create a nautical oasis for our baby boy, especially since we live on the water.

Design Inspiration

Conscience Bay, Old Field, NY

Decorating Style

Modern with classic touches.

Project Details

Crib, changing table, boat rocker, nautical storage bag and others:  Pottery Barn Kids.  We also have a sailboat mobile (from Grandma) from PBK but have removed it since our baby is now six months old.

Nautical banner, life preserver pillow, anchor pillow, sheets and others:  Land of Nod

Antique boat shelf:  gift from dear family friends

Frame and duck bank:  Tiffany's

Favorite Items

Too many to choose.  I adore everything!  But I love that the photo that says "Michael" above his crib was created when I was 29 weeks pregnant.  My husband and I went to East Hampton for our two year wedding anniversary and spontaneously drew his name in the sand.  It was perfect.


Don't be afraid to sprinkle in some eclectic pieces, like the nautical clock and antique boat shelf in my baby's room.  It gives the nursery a personal touch, making it unique.

That antique boat shelf is just precious! I also like those life-saver and anchor-shaped pillows.
