A place where design, fun finds and family collide

Nautical Nursery {room tour}

This nursery has been so much fun to work on.  I have known the soon-to-be mommy for years and this is her first baby.  She wanted a super special nursery for her little guy, but just wasn’t in love with the room that would be his nursery.  They currently rent the most unique beach cottage that is just full of character.  Some times “character” can be seen as a hindrance, but I was excited to make it a special piece of this nursery.  Here are a few before shots of the space so you see what I was working with:

The walls were covered in two different types of wood going in two different directions with a back wall with a very useless wall cubby.  It was time to get to work and make this space special.
My design board for her looked like this:

As with all designs…things change slightly and usually for the better, so you’ll see a few tweaks that were made in the final room. 
Now for the room, get ready for photos overload.

I hope you have enjoyed this little tour.  The best part about this nursery design for me is that the mommy now says this is her favorite room in her house.  That she loves the originally wood walls and even that ceiling.  All the character that was initially viewed as unattractive, is now serving a design purpose and I just adore it.  I can’t wait to meet this little guy in a few short weeks!
