Nautical Playroom Update

This is week two of the One Room Challenge, put on by Calling it Home. It has been so fun gathering all of the nautical goodies for the playroom I am making over at my Mother In Laws home!

If you remember from last week I had quite a big To-Do list. I had put the bed together last week but I was missing the comforter so I did purchase a plain navy one from Target and added that to the bed. I had a lot of stripes going on so, I thought something simple would do the trick. I stuck the comforter in the dryer, as it was super wrinkly when I took it out of the bag, and it is still wrinkled! I can not stand wrinkled linens so, I am not showing a picture of that just yet. I will have to bust out my iron before the big reveal.

I did hang all the art and applied an anchor decal on the wall. The Hubs put together the cube shelving unit for me(Yay Hubs) and I decorated and filled all the bins with the kids’ toys.

ORC Accessories

Oar-Mashalls//Anchor Pail- MacBeth Collection(no longer available)//Shelving Unit-Target//Blue & White Striped Bins- H&M//Blue & Grey Bins-Target//Anchor Wall Decal-Target//Octopus Wood Art-Home Goods//Red & White Striped Pillows- Home Goods//Whale Pillow-Home Goods(sorry for bad pics…this is going to be my biggest struggle) All other decor are things I already had. The framed art is a little DIY I will share next week:).


This room is for two girls and two boys. I thought a Nautical theme would be something they all could enjoy. We went to my Mother In Laws for Easter and the kids all loved it so far! I am really loving it too. It is so bright an cheery in that room now. Many of the toys were moved to the closet in storage shelves, so the kids have a lot more room to play and can find things easier.

  1. I’ve enjoyed watching your room progress. We live near a lake and spend a lot of time on the water, so I’ve been trying to incorporate a nautical space but haven’t figured out where it can go in the house. Love your ideas.

    1. Thank you so much! I love any design that is inspired by the water…coastal, nautical, beach bungalow…etc…so this has been so fun for me:) I always try to sneak it in wherever I home is Mid Century Modern… so trying to incorporate it in my home has been difficult. I snuck it in one of my bathrooms:)
