So I switched things up a bit, skipped mood board monday (was still on beach vacation mode), decided to combine my Monday post with my Friday journey of a nursery post and give it to you on a Wednesday. Well, here it is…
As I mentioned before the “theme” for our nursery is vintage nautical.
Remember how my initial inspiration was the vintage ship artwork?. Well, the jumping off point for the rest of the room started with the colorful Anthropologie pillow and fantastic vintage linen Matteo baby bedding. The bedding was the hardest thing for me to find, there’s some really cheesy stuff out there. I contemplated making it, but really who has time for that. The goal for the room was to incorporate texture in as many places as possible. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the decorative pillow for the crib has rope and twine woven throughout the front of it, and the colorful embroidered coral brings in another layer of texture. The crocheted storage baskets from ikea are perfect for the open shelving unit in the room. With such a neutral palette I wanted to bring in some pops of color. A bright green color will be brought in with the green bird cage I already have on hand. I also picked up a vintage tin trash can in the same color green that I plan on using as a laundry basket. With the Bunny Gray walls and and white crib, I decided to pepper in some antique oak pieces like the letters and mirror to keep it from being too light. Plus it brings in nice nautical touch.
So there you have it, my nautical theme (but not to themed) nursery mood board.
