Attending a baby shower? Look up the mom to be!

Nursery Spotlight: Nautical Nurseries

With Ice Age: Continental Drift in theaters tomorrow (we hear our prehistoric friends are lost at sea in this one), we were feeling inspired by nautical-themed nurseries today. Here are some ideas for getting the look in baby's room.

What do you think of the nautical theme? Would you use it in your nursery?

Navy and white

This color scheme instantly gives baby's room a nautical vibe. Adding a few nautical accessories, like these whale prints, completes the look.

Subtle touches

We love how subtle the nautical theme is in this nursery — the clouds are such an unexpected touch, and the modern bedding gives the room a fun, quirky vibe.

Here's another gorgeous photo from this nursery from On To Baby. We love the thoughtful touches in this room — mom painted that wall art herself!

Non-traditional nautical

This nursery is a totally unique approach on the traditional nautical look. Get the look by mixing up prints and adding personal touches, like a map above the crib.

Nautical prints

Although the nautical look lends itself most naturally to a baby boy's nursery, adding a few nautical-themed touches, like this print, is a fun way to channel the look in a little girl's room.

It's a pirate's life

We love this nautical wall decal, spotted in a nursery on Creative Baby Nursery Rooms. Not only are wall decals cute, but they can be a lot easier than painting and last for years!
