Nursery Ideas: Design a Nautical Nursery
Made by Hand
Casey Allen's family helped her create this nautical room for baby Annie. Allen's sister sewed the sailboat skirt and the pink and white sheet for this adorable crib.
Touches of Pink
The walls are blue, so Allen added some pink nautical accents throughout the nursery to make it girl-friendly.
Place a side table next to your nursing chair, as Allen did in her baby's nursery.
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.
Include Some Tradition
This third-generation dresser adds special meaning to the nursery. Studzenski dressed it up with adorable infant boat shoes.
Set the Scene
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.
Bold and Bright
The red curtains in front of the closet bring attention to the neighboring captain's wheel.
Easy as Navy and White
Blocks of storage help to establish organization in the changing table area.
Sarah Tucker didn't set out to create a theme for her nursery, but it has plenty of nautical touches. The traditional nursery features a giant map behind the elegant crib.
All Books Aboard
Get creative with storage! Tucker put her books in this boat basket, making them easily visible and accessible to read to a fussy baby.
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.
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.
Under the Sea
The whale mobile and wall decorations make a splash in Wilson's nursery.
Each piece in this wall art collection says nautical without being overwhelming. Put together, they complement each other nicely.
This nursery reminds us of a Fourth of July celebration out at sea.
