I racked my brain for the perfect theme for our first born... a boy. I knew I didn't want to be to "baby" and I knew my husband and I would have to agree. Finally... a distressed sailboat came into view and there was the beginning of what is now my favorite room in the house! A vintage/modern Nautical nursery.
My inspiration were the first 2 items I found and purchased that I knew I wanted to be the direction his room went in. The white distressed sailboat and the blue "All my Love, All my Life" sign that was hung with rope.
What best describes my decorating style? Warm and cozy. I would love if every room in my home made anyone else who walked into it feel "at home."
Somehow, almost everything for his room ended up to be from Homegood's. I'd search for a piece (i.e., a lamp) for a week and then walk into a Homegoods and find the perfect item! I also played with a lot of paint websites, putting all the different shades of nautical blues against warm tan's. The room turned out exactly like my final picture!
I'd have to say that his wooden Z (that someone made for me), his lamp and his swing shelf are my favorite items. Of course, everything personalized makes me feel warm and fuzzy but I'd have to say those items out of what I purchased.
Search for bargains and dont be in a hurry to buy! If I would have listened to my inner angst, I would have filled his room with pieces that I thought were perfect just because I wanted it all done and ready for him!
