Hank’s Nautical Nursery

Brooke was kind enough to send me some photos she took of her client Sarah’s nursery she created for her baby Hank.  I thought it was so perfectly sweet and had to share!  She said Sarah used a lot of Lay Baby Lay inspiration, and I love seeing how it all came together.  This room has such a perfect vintage feel with all the wood trim, which ties in with the nautical look so nicely.  I really love that she used the Jenny Lind crib; I think it’s easy to be hesitant to use this style in a boy’s room, but I think it works so well, especially in the cherry or ebony colors.

Sarah’s sisters hand painted that sweet banner with Hank’s name on it, and aren’t the anchors sweet on the wall?  You can find similar ones here; such a great way to make a statement wall affordably!  That vintage helm clock is also such a great accent.

This is such a great collection of nautical inspired art, and the natural wood frames in varying finishes make it feel cohesive.

Love that rocker – it looks really comfy!  That license plaque on the wall is from Sarah’s great grandfather’s auto garage; Hank’s middle name is Coulter.  What a sweet nod to his heritage!  (Moustache pillow from here.)

The rug is from ikea, and that organizer (also from ikea!) makes the perfect little piece for storing odds and ends and keeping them close at hand.  I love that she put the books next to the rocker within easy reach for bedtime stories and cuddling (similar shelves here).  Seriously, I just love all that wood trim.  It’s the perfect complement to the nautical look.

Thanks so much for sharing, Brooke and Sarah!!  I love the space, and I’m sure little Hank does, too!  And speaking of, here is a pic of the cute little guy:
