I have seen quite a number of nautical nurseries here. But I think this is the first one that used the combination of blue and yellow. I think it's a unique color scheme and I like how you worked it. The contrast is pretty neat.

I really like the life savers and the navy blue stripes on the wall. This room is really perfect for a little boy.
