Imagine being in beachy New England in this modern Nantucket nursery! The perfect gender-neutral nursery decor for any baby and mama who want to fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore.
Before you ask, NO, I’m not pregnant again. But one of my best friends is! She’s due with a little boy in September and asked me to help her create a easy, breezy nursery. She didn’t want it to be nautical or cartoony, but instead evoke the beachy New England feeling of Nantucket or the Hamptons.
I love creating mood boards for different rooms, especially rooms where I have to step outside my personal style a little bit. I started with a simple and traditional crib and dresser set, and then started to fill in the room. I love the octopus wood print and the textile rain cloud wall hanging in particular.
The light is a yellow-gold color that pairs well with the jute ottoman, wood rocker rails, and rope mirror. The seagull mobile soars gently overhead. And of course baby needs an adorable plush otter!
