Oh Baby!!!

 One of my best friends Cara is finding out Monday if she is having a boy or a girl!! I am so excited for her...I got even more excited when she asked me to help her design their nursery =) So here is round one of ideas.  Her husband Josh is adamant that this baby is a boy (my bet is girl)  and if it is they are wanting to do a sailboat themed nursery.  As soon as I heard this, I was off browsing the web as I normally do.  I'm hoping they will be as excited as I am with the treasures I've found....

This kid will definitely need a sailboat mobile...

I love both these ideas.  Making letters from his name out of an old map and a cute little letterpress to go by its side!

While doing a themed nursery I think it is easy to go a little overboard (no pun intended).  At first I was looking for nautical fabrics but was more fond of some of these...

Joel Dewberry's fabric seemed to add a more modern touch....and who doesn't love Dwell??




Cara and Josh have a Boston terrier so I thought this was only fitting for the little dudes room =) The red is perfect too!

Striped rug from Amazon perfect for in front of the crib
Throw in a few shelves and some baby belly shots and you have yourself a little home for the little man!!!

Love you Cara!!


  1. LOVE the nautical stuff. There is a bar on grand ave called The Drink that is all nautical themed...we should probably go there for inspiration :)

  2. I love all the word art. I have to admit, I'm a little obsessed with "planning" my son's nursery and never actually doing anything. He's 3 months old. BAH. I'm trying to do a vintage theme, but I have too many ideas and don't have the slightest clue how to mesh them all together!
