Nautical Themed Boy’s Nursery Room

Today on Project Nursery I am sharing a darling boy’s nursery by new mom, designer and editor of Cottage Modern, Kristen. The result is a beautiful mix of traditional, contemporary and modern styles. Simply put, it’s clean and classic.
Kristen selected a calming color scheme of whites and blues with accents in bright orange and subtle nautical touches. My favorite is the simple drum shade light fixture embellished with a splash of whimsy by way of orange pom pom trim and blue paper whales—this is a great way to dress up a shade!
The map letters spell out the baby’s name, giving the room a personal touch. They also pull in just the right shades of blue and orange. Kristen made them herself, and to make them even more special, she used maps from regions in Canada and Minnesota where she and her husband are from. Love!
My absolute favorite part of the room, however, is how Kristen transformed this built-in shelving unit. Painting it white and adding the soft contrast of the light blue back revived the dated bookcase. The organizational specialist in me adores how she made the counter into a practical and well-organized changing station.
What do you love most about this beautiful nursery?

    Well, that's a perfect nursery for the “I'm the King of The World”, as every little boy should be and have.

    I like nurseries when I can see the babies growing into dreamers and makers and this must be one of the best I saw this year.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Happy New Year Cristin! For you and your beloved ones…

    I have a little guy who inherited the nursery from his big sister. I must try to make those map letters, they are darling!
