The Nautical Nursery that Changed our Lives

A dark office transforms to a warm, beach inspired retreat in this nautical themed nursery. From the sailboat fabric bolster pillow to super easy DIY wall art to rope trimmed accessories, the entire family found respite enveloped by our son's nautical room! It turns out you CAN combine kids items with a style your love, and soon our family found itself hanging out in our son's calming nursery more than we ever expected. Lots more details can be found in this post:
The BEFORE: a dark office 'cave', not the style or feel we enjoy.
The AFTER! Rope trimmed mirror, starfish shadow boxes, and a sailboat bolster provide tons of beachy looking comfort.
Embroidery hoops hold nautical themed fabric for a quick and easy wall display.
Small touches like coral hooks extend the beach theme without going over the top.
Yes, even the trash can is rope! I trimmed a cheap IKEA trash can with rope and sisal, and the look was classy yet beach-inspired.
The bookcase holds special objects that reflect our love of the beach, and our love of our baby. {awwww...}
Pillows such as this sailboat bolster add to the look without going 'overboard'. {wink}
Dark wood furniture contrasts with the sandy colored rug and calming blue wall.
A custom ordered vinyl decal with the initial 'B' personalizes this space. Etsy is a great place to find unique touches!
