Nicole Studzenski started by creating a gender-neutral nursery, but her thoughts turned nautical when she decided the room needed more color and patterns. The blue and white rug is a quick way to make a nursery seem more nautical, especially if you aren't keen on changing the room's paint color.

Rachel Otley's son (Vander) came home to this sweet sailor's paradise. We love how Otley used a life preserver as a cute accent against the dark blue walls in the nursery.

Look outside nursery-specific decorations. Tucker got the T in this photo from Anthropologie (she painted it gold) and added some of her own photos into the mix.

Neutral Nautical

When Chelsey Wilson started designing her nursery, she didn't know the gender of her little one. Gray paint goes well with a boy's or a girl's room.
