A girly version of the ever popular boy nautical themed nursery. Crafted from authentic finds 100 year old oars, real buoys, fisherman's wheels and nets....her room came together and is ready to set sail!

Design Inspiration

The sea!

Decorating Style

I like finding authetic pieces or vintage furniture and mixing it with new. IF I can't find the perfect decoration, I love making it or turning it into something I can work with it!

Project Details

Go to your local supply store. For Stella's room, I found fisherman's supply warehouses all over town because we live by the beach. HomeGoods and HomeDepot are other great stores to purchase or just get ideas. and are also 2 great online stores to shop!

Favorite Items

The real fisherman's net that I triple washed! you have no idea what was lurking in there?!


Get's worth it! If the item doesnt come in the PERFECT color, dont hesitate buying it. So many things can be painted or crafted to match your theme and decor perfectly.

    Great work at making the nautical theme fit for a girl!  I love how you have softened all these things and put them together.  Love the oars with the name lettering, and that lamp, where’d you get that?

    Hi, I was wondering where you got the barrel to use for the clothes hamper. Im having a boy and got the nautical baby bedding this past weekend and I was looking at stuff on how to decorate his room and I love yours!

    Hi Emily-
    Congrats on your boy ;) I found it at a yacht surplus store in Newport beach… Where we live. But it’s basically an old wine barrel. Check around online if you don’t have a yacht store nearby.
    Good luck!

    Hi! LOVE the room! I am trying to use a lot of your great ideas for my son’s nursery. Can you please tell me how you painted her letters for her name on the wall? How did you get the pink, yellow & blue on there? Thanks for such a cute inspiration room! :)

    I’ve really been struggling to be inspired for my daughter’s room. I knew I wanted nautical..but didn’t know how to make it nautical feminine. This is amazing! So creative! I wouldn’t change a single thing! :)

    Hi Shannon. Thank you very much! The letters were covered with fabric to match her bedskirt that her grandmother made her. It was glued on with Mod Podge glue. Then I tore/cut coordinating fabrics in all different shapes to look like scrap pieces and adhered them on top of the base fabric with more Mod Podge glue. Look at Michael’s or Joanns for Mod Podge Matte finish. It doesn’t have a shiny finish…and dries flat. For the base fabric I left a little extra to fold over the back of each letter…adhering with glue. It’s seems rather difficult, but once you get the hang of it it isn’t!

    Good luck!

    I love this. I had a nautical theme in mind boy or girl. But when I found out I’m having a girl it has been a struggle especially the bedding! What great ideas. You are very creative.

    Hello love the decor. I’m thinking of copying your ideas for my little girls room. May I know what the wall letters are made of? Is this made of wood or paper? How did you make the letters? Appreciate your response. TY.

    Hello, Laura…I love the room! I was wondering if you remember where you got the life ring from? I’m having a hard time finding one that looks genuine.

    Do you have a link to the hooks used to hang the oars? I don’t have a boating supply store near me. Thought maybe I could get online. Coat hooks don’t seem to be wide enough to hold.
