There’s something about a nautical bedroom that makes me happy.
Perhaps it was my childhood (growing up with a dad and two brothers that had a love for boats), or maybe it’s seeing the joy in my children’s faces when they see a boat floating on the horizon. Either way, it’s a great theme for a little guy — the bright colours, the fun and endless possibilities for decorating and the imagination…
The Pottery Barn Kids Super Star Rug ($120- 699) is not your typical nautical theme, but with these versatile colours it works perfectly with this room. Plus, not everything in the room has to match perfectly.
The Blake Quilted Bedding and Shams ($22.99- $144.99) remind me of stripes on a boat. This simple pattern — and great colour theme — can grow with your child and with any future changes to the room.
