Connley’s Nursery-1

Connley’s nursery allows your dreams to set sail! The walls of the room are a gorgeous navy blue while the bottom quarter of the walls are vertical navy and white stripes, thus setting the nautical tone that carries throughout the room.

White DaVinci Clover Convertible CribMandy Paige from  Mandy Paige Photography did a fantastic job with little Connley’s space. The combination of red, white, and blue very fittingly keeps this room afloat 🙂  The white traditional crib sits against the navy wall with horizontal white stripes that tie in with the crib’s navy striped bedding creating a simultaneous unison and balanced color contrast. Centered above the crib is an old fashioned captain’s wheel! this allows the back wall and crib to become the main focal point of the room. If you’re on the hunt for a similar crib consider the DaVinci Clover Convertible Crib in White, very similar at a bargain price, on sale for $259.99 from Wayfair. Another great find is the captain wheel that will complement just about any nautical, or sailor inspired nursery, a great find on Amazon is the Blue and White Ship Wheel with Anchor 18″ , we love to find affordable décor pieces for the nursery!Ship Wheel Nursery Decor

nursery-red-dresserThe red dresser and bed side table stand out magnificently in this nursery, making them focal points as well as functional furniture. This diy reconditioned french dresser adds personality to this nautical themed nursery. You can accomplish the same look by browsing your local Craigslist listings for “old vintage dressers” I’m certain you will find a dresser that can be reconditioned and painted with a bold color of your choice. We found this amazing red dresser tutorial from Wray Sist3rs’s blog if you’re up to the mission. However, if you’re able to splurge on a new french dresser we found this affordable Regency Bombe 3 -Drawer Chest, from Amazon listed at $319.99+free shipping. Very similar to the curved french dresser in Connley’s room, we can’t hide how excited this made us considering most french dressers cost an arm and a leg. Since this is a new piece all you need is to have it repainted and voilà! Another great choice is the ready to order red Chevron Bombe 3 Drawer Dresser also from Wayfair, it is absolutely lovely and only $184.95, can’t beat that!curved french dresser

Other decor on the walls include; oars, boats, anchors, lifesavers, buoys, and shelves that red chevron nursery dresserhold toy sail boats. Check out Etsy for exclusive finds on unique nursery decor

A small, white chandelier hangs from the center of the room that takes the nursery from sailor’s deck to captain’s quarters! 

A small rowboat shaped toy chest sits under the window. This adds a unique nautical feel to the room that any little boy would love! 

Mandy adds a pop to the monotony of the typical navy and white colors with a splash of red.   As you can see, boy nursery ideas can be fun and imaginative! Turn your little man’s dreams into reality by beginning his life as Captain of the quarters! Be warned: His first word may not be ‘mommy’ but ‘ahoy’ in a room this perfectly nautical!
