Miles’ Nautical Nursery


My husband and I wanted to create a nautical nursery for our little boy to grow into that is both relaxing and inspiring.

Design Inspiration

Boating, marine life, whales, coastal.

Decorating Style

Classic, bright and sophisticated.

Project Details

Hobby Lobby: white whale picture frame, fishing boat, blue/rope picture frame, wire and rope basket, lighthouse, pillow case fabric, wave wall art, large oak ruler growth chart.

Anthropologie: blue anchor knobs

IKEA: spice racks converted into book shelves

Home Goods: nautical wheel

Walmart: rocking chair and canvas map

DIY: wooden map covered "M", name blocks, hanging net with starfish, clothes dividers

Favorite Items

My favorite items are the DIY projects that I made. I love the personal touch that they add to the room.

My favorite non-DIY item is the nautical wheel, since it was what we found while shopping on our baby moon that inspired our nautical theme.


Give yourself plenty of time to work on the nursery so you can have fun with it and find/make special pieces along the way.
