Nautical baby bedding is an obvious choice for parents expecting a little boy. The maritime themes all employ lots of cool blue tones that have always been associated with decorating for a baby boy. You can go for a preppy, upscale look by using the Come Sail Away Nautical Bedding set that features pretty red sailboats and candy striped lighthouses that make you feel as though you are living along the coastline. The white and blue seersucker accents on the comforter and accessories helps lend a preppy touch to the overall look. If you decide to use a nautical theme in your baby�s room, consider paneling the lower half of the walls with white wainscoting. Traditionally used by homes that lived in high moisture areas like along the coast or near a beach, the wainscoting helped to keep excess moisture from affecting the structure of the home. Nowadays, wainscoting is used as a design element but it is still traditionally associated with waterfront properties. The added benefit of paneling the lower half of your child�s room is that you will be able to save on paint if you need to redecorate a few years down the road. For the upper half of the walls above the wainscoting, try using a cheery shade of blue that will coordinate with the blues used in this beautiful nautical baby crib bedding.
The nautical look is clearly a fun choice, and can be a fun option for boys or girls. This motif is particularly nice for anyone who is drawn to classic themes; the heavy use of blues in nautical crib bedding sets is both neutral and universally appealing. And with the various options available to you, your can personalize your baby nursery design so that it turns out playful or traditional. The calm that ocean themes can inspire is the perfect choice for a baby nursery, providing a relaxing space where your baby can rest, play, and learn during his first years.
