Nautical Inspiration {{Marcus' Big Boy Room}}

The need to get things done around the house is hitting me full force. I can't help it. With Marcus' big boy bed coming at the end of the week, and the fact that we haven't even touched on the idea of a nursery, I'm in full-fledged nesting mode.

It will probably be several weeks until any nursery ideas come together, but Marcus' room is another story. A theme, or look, has been chosen, and I'm ready to make this room happen. 

Here's some of inspiration we're working with.

The bed:
We only have three bedrooms, and when grandparents visit we want them to have a place to stay without having to book a hotel. The full bed will work for two adults, and the twin trundle will be just right for Marcus. May I also add that I love the additional storage beneath the trundle, as well as under the bed (Marcus has already discovered that the under-bed-storage makes for the perfect little fort). There is no such thing as too much storage. 

We have a dresser that was Scott's growing up, so we are going to re-stain that to a color that matches the bed, and I found some hardware that I think will tie in just perfectly.
After a little bit of contemplation the chevron won my heart (shocking). It resembles waves, and I'm just smitten with it. 

The decor and accessories:
Navy and white will be the primary colors with pops of reds and yellows throughout. 
My mom is making the comforter, and I just know it's going to exceed my expectations. 
curtains // oars // mirror // lamp // sailboat
captains wheel // captain:pirate sign // book shelf // anchor with lights // curtain hardware
And there it is. I can't wait to see how it all comes together, and I'm even more exited to share the room when it's completed (let's hope that's sooner rather than later).

  8. So awesome!! The hardware is gorgeous and I love the theme!! We have that tricky bedroom situation for guests as well. What we do now is blow up a big aero bed in the third bedroom. And that will still work for a while when Mabel shows up because she'll be in our room....but come the end of this year, I hope they don't mind sleeping in the living room! haha. Sorry grandparents.

  10. I love that bed so much! It is perfect. My papa built me a bed when I was a kid and it has storage like that underneath. Super convenient. What a great theme. Can't wait to see it all done!

  11. Loooooo the nautical theme!!!!! Seriously, I would go overboard (no pun intended) with a little boy! That bed is just perfect for the situation. We technically have a fourth room but it works way to well as a playroom to let it go. I guess house guests will need to use a blow up in the foyer? Haha

  12. I love nautical themes, and it looks like it's going to be a great room for Marcus. I can't wait to see it come together! I especially love that bed - we have a similar situation; 3 bedroom house, and grandparents come to visit. We want them to have a room and bed, and not just an air mattress.

  16. True story there is NEVER enough storage! Great idea to get the full bed and the trundle! We got callie a full but figured if we need the space she could sleep on her air mattress and the adults would get the bed. You guys thought more ahead than we did! :) Love the nautical theme for a little boy -- just perfect!
