Our nautical nursery is a tribute to life on the high seas for a very lucky little boy! Since this was a small room, we started with the addition of a built-in shelving unit and window bench seat that opens up for additional storage. Next we added a high cream colored wainscoting to provide a beach-home feel to the room. We found this royal blue convertible crib discounted at a local furniture store and thought it would be perfect for a nautical themed nursery. I found this cute nautical ceiling light fixture online for only $40 and spray-painted it red to coordinate with the custom painted Sherri Blum Nautical Wall Hanging. I found the "Row Row Row Your Boat" wooden letters for only $2 each at a local discount craft store and painted them white and hung them randomly across the wall to add a touch of whimsy to the nursery. We finished up with custom bedding, window treatments, bench cushions, and rug to tie this nautical nursery neatly together for a custom look without breaking the bank.
Parents loved the beach and boating!
I combine my design experience and knowledge with the dreams and style of the client to complete a room that they will love. Each room reflects my client's style.
Use the cube. Take advantage of the walls in a small room and add built-in shelving and storage benches when possible. We all know that kids have lots of toys and gadgets that need proper homes!
The window bench seat. I can just imaging Mommy or Daddy cuddling up on the bench with baby to read story books each night!
Find discount lighting and spray paint it to coordinate with the room for a custom designed feel. I spray paint EVERYTHING!
