Jayden’s Vintage Nautical Nursery
Today we welcome guest blogger and Del Ray interior designer Katie Moore of Olios Design. Katie and her husband Andrew are the proud new parents of baby Jayden, born in September. When we saw pictures of the nursery Katie designed for Jayden on her blog earlier this week, we knew we wanted to share here as well. We love how it’s full of so many sentimental and handmade treasures.
When my husband and I found out we were having a boy, I immediately knew I wanted a vintage nautical themed nursery. We already had the dresser and side table (the space was previously our spare bedroom). This was a inspirational mood board that got me started.
We own a 22 catalina sailboat and when I was searching for the perfect bookcase, it wasn’t happening. So I was pleasantly surprised when my husband said he would build Jayden’s bookcase…and he nailed it, wouldn’t you say? That’s right, my husband built-this custom sailboat bookcase from scratch.
There are so many handmade items in Jayden’s nursery. The artwork, throw pillow, and custom Growth Chart all came from Etsy.
This Set Sail sign was hand painted painted by my grandmother. Jayden’s name wasn’t revealed until his birth so when she comes to visit, she will add his name across the top.
The antique dresser and night stand are from two of our favorite local stores, Hip and Humble and Lucketts. I replaced the original hardware with more appropriate knobs and pulls I found at Anthropologie.
I hope you enjoy Jayden’s vintage nautical themed nursery tour as much as I had designing it! Of all the projects I have done, this has been one of my favorite spaces, by far. I spend the majority of my time in the nursery these days and I enjoy every moment.
