Open Water: Nautical Kids Bedroom Idea
Land Ho! Everyone loves the sea and we love working with red, white & blue color schemes combined with wood to create fresh, strong nautical-inspired rooms for boys.
Creating nautical design is about gathering objects in colors and materials that evoke images of the sea. Anchors, buoys, flags, ropes, lighthouses, boats… Both rustic and elegant. You get the idea.
…and bedding by Eastern Accents (stripes are a natural fit in a nautical theme). Don’t you want to just sail away? This great space features our Young America Harbor Town Bunk Bed, Chest and Night Stand.
We also added flags, lanterns and other richly oceanic accents from Blue Ocean Traders…
We suggest gathering your ideas and inspiration from magazines and online sources like pinterest (don’t forget to follow us for great kid-specific decorating, DIY and lifestyle ideas). Once you’ve gathered your ideas, then put together your own inspiration or design board. After you’ve determined your direction, the shopping, planning and decorating can begin.
There are some great DIY ideas to create nautical inspiration for pennies. See our blog posts on making your own pennant banners or a paper sailboat mobile …or see this amazing art blog for making drifwood boats. A beautiful hand-crafted project for you and your child to enjoy together…
