Check out the baby rooms with a nautical theme created by the talented designers featured below.
1. A Boat Shaped Crib
Boat shaped beds aren’t just for toddlers, check out the boat crib featured below. When you want to add color to your room but prefer a more subtle approach, introduce it on one-third of each of the walls. This technique creates a wainscoting affect to enhance the nautical theme. If your taste in color is bolder, you can also reverse this look. Go ahead and paint the top half of the room in full blue and leave one third of the walls in white.
2. Walls and Floors as the Focal Point
By focusing on the walls and the floor, baby rooms with a nautical theme are created with mostly paint and accessories. This design brings the nautical theme together by using subtle accessories. An oar on the wall makes a unique piece of art that also helps to tie the design together. Various nautical accessories in multiple textures add interest and depth to a themed room. Look for plush rugs, soft cottons, quilted pillows and bedding, faux fur, rope, and wood.
3. The Walls Garner Most of the Design
Floor to ceiling wall coverings featuring a nautical design are an easy way to complete a themed room. Using this approach you won’t need to add many nautical accessories. With an abundance of color and design on the wall you can maintain a fairly neutral approach using other aspects of the space. Combine textures and shades instead of patterns, and leave the patterns for the wall.
4. Create a Nautical Theme Without Using the Color Blue
Who says you have to feature blue as your primary nautical themed color choice? The convenient aspect to the design below is the use of seafoam green to suit any gender. Of course blue can be used for any gender as well, however, a soft pastel offers another approach. Pleasing soft green takes you away from the traditional blues and pinks. The crisp, clean, airy design of this nautical baby room is ideal for those who prefer a space with an open feel. Keep the color to a minimum and feature white in the furniture and wood trim. What a gorgeous space! This designer has created a room that evokes a calm happy feeling. Life seems easy in this nursery.
