Tatum’s Nursery


I wanted to create a bright and happy nursery for my daughter. After designing my wedding I was inspired by the colors coral and teal and decided to add yellow for a fresh feel.

Design Inspiration

I love coastal elements and color. I wanted to bring these ideas together to create a fun and bright environment.

Decorating Style

I love the ocean and coastal design. My style ranges from soft muted ocean colors to bright and fun bold colors depending on the room.

Project Details

I mixed a lot of items from Etsy, large retailers (Pottery Barn Kids, Land of Nod, Michaels) and also added my own DIY items and personal touches to things. I am an artist so I created the main artwork for the nursery wall ( Now available as a print! Please contact me if you are interested in replicating the art or a custom nursery piece, I would be happy to help!( I bought white plank frames from Michaels and painted them in yellow stripes to match the rest of the room. I also painted the wooden letters to match the color scheme. The main bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids, but the quilt was bought from Shilohmae on Etsy to bring in the pop of coral. I had the starfish sign custom color matched on Etsy from JustBeachyShop. The wooden whale above the sofa was unfinished and I custom painted it.

Favorite Items

My favorite items  in the nursery are probably all the wall decor. I love the starfish sign, the whale and how the art really made the room come together.


Etsy is a great resource when you are looking for one of a kind items, or want something special. Most vendors will work with you to create custom colors or lettering. I found that finding some things from big retailers and combining them with custom, hand made items made the room feel unique.

Hi Ashley,

Thank you so much!

I would love to help you! Where are you located? Sometimes shipping can be tricky with bigger pieces. If you are local (San Diego) it helps :)

I can do custom colors to match your nursery as well if you wanted to change them.

I don't get notified when I have messages on PN so if you use my e-mail it's easier:

Thanks again and congratulations on the little one!

Hi Kristy,

So sorry for the late response! I didn't realize I had comments :) I used Salt Water 8591 by Frazee

It's a great color!

Absolutely love this nursery! I did a nautical nursery for my son, and am really loving the fresh feel of your baby girl's! You mentioned that you are the artist behind the wall art, where can I find your art?
