Tips for an Ocean-Themed Nursery

You don’t have to live by the ocean to use it as design inspiration for your baby’s nursery. The ocean can be calming and serene, and an ocean-themed nursery can incorporate many beautiful, natural colors. This gives you a lot of decorating options. If you need a little more decorating direction, here’s what you need to create a beautiful and fun ocean-themed nursery for your baby.

Incorporate Sea Creatures and Plants – To create a solid ocean theme, make sure to incorporate images of sea creatures. These can include fish, coral, or seahorses. Whatever sea creature or plant draws you in or interests you, use it in the nursery. This is a great way to incorporate other bright, happy colors, and it will still coordinate beautifully with your theme.

Use an Ocean-Inspired Color Palette – The basic ocean colors or greens, blues, browns, and whites. Don’t forget about the yellow of the sun, too. Sticking to a color palette can create consistency and continuity in your nursery décor. But don’t feel as though you have to stick with just blue and brown. There are many colors of the ocean; you just have to look for them.

Give It a Nautical Flair – Add a bit more design depth by adding nautical accents, like oars, picture of boats, or even blue and white stripes. The great thing about using both a nautical and ocean theme is that they work so well and so naturally together.
