With less than four months until Baby Solt’s arrival, it’s time to begin planning and organizing the nursery! Regardless of gender, I always knew I would go with a blue and white nautical theme. Now that we know it’s a girl, I’m excited to have some fun with nautical inspired decor!
My goal for the nursery is to keep things bright, classic, and preppy [and expensive]. Using a blue and white color palette will keep things classic, but not too serious. [Cause we don’t want a serious baby!] My mom has already spent the past few weeks painting the walls a bright white (thanks Mom!) – they were brown before – a color not in my palette. The white walls did exactly what I wanted and brought such a fresh, new look to the room. [Kim made the walls great again]
I’ve had my heart set on hanging wallpaper on the wall where the crib will go. For weeks I’ve been going back and forth between three prints – nautical sailboats, modern florals, or preppy peonies. [I hear those are the most well endowed peonies.] After lots of trips into the nursery to stare at the samples during different times of the day, I’ve finally decided on the preppy peonies! I think this print will be so pretty for a little girl’s room. It will add the perfect amount of preppiness and color to the walls.
Target and Pottery Barn Kids have SO MUCH preppy nautical décor (in heaven). From anchor lamps, to Lilly Pulitzer sheet sets, to sea faring art prints, they have so many cute pieces from which to choose. I’ve included some of my favorite registry items below!
A full nursery reveal will happen in a few weeks! I’ll be sure to post some pictures – I’m so excited to share the final design with you all!
