Nautical Nursery


My husband and I are marine biologists, so a nautical nursery was a no-brainer for us!  I wanted white furniture with blue walls, and loved the bright green accents!

Design Inspiration

I wanted to include sailboats, whales, and anchors.  

Decorating Style

My style can be described as clean and classic.

Project Details

Wall Color: Retro Colonial blue, Valspar

Crib: Cocoon 2000 by Baby's Dream

Everything else is homemade and found on craigslist or garage sales.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the sailboat mobile.  It is so delicate and William loves looking at it.  It was a garage sale find by my sister-in-law, and I've never seen anything like it!  I also love the whale paintings my sister did!

Your sailboat mobile is indeed a scene-stealer! The whale artworks are also gorgeous.
