Close your eyes for a minute and picture a nautical themed bedroom. What do you see? I envision lots of white’s, wood paneling, navy (perhaps stripes), and maybe pops of red or brown. Is this similar to what you envision? This was my plan for redecorating my 5 year old son’s bedroom.
For me being a visual person, the best way to start is with a NAUTICAL THEMED style board.
First, I had to challenge my DIY skills and create a shiplap (or faux wood) feature wall. Who doesn’t love a little Shiplap these days?
I knew a shiplap feature wall would really create dimension to the room and make it more cozy. To see my post on Shiplap with NO POWER TOOLS just click here. Below is a picture of the Shiplap I created with no power tools.
The next thing I needed to create an inviting atmosphere was lighting. Lately I’ve been loving the look of wall mounted lights. Best part, they aren’t super expensive. See my “shop the room” list below for details.
I created the walls and purchased the lights, what’s next for my NAUTICAL THEMED BEDROOM.
My wishlist for this room incorporated woods, whites, a few reds and blues and I thought a metal framed bed would look nice. What do you think?
At this point I had some great basics like a shiplap feature wall and the bed, but I needed the accessories.
So what was I missing for this cozy nautical bedroom?
- 2) artwork
- 4) greenery
- 5) lighting (check!)
- 6) personalized decor
Personalized decor can range from a few personal pictures to a sign that has a quote with meaning.
Do you have a room that’s missing one or more of these elements? Seriously, add a few of these and see if it changes the feel of a room. I’m almost certain it will.
To finalize my list of accessories, I want to compile a source list of where I can find these products. So here we go;
Shop similar products from the Nautical Themed Style Board:
Note: some of these links are affiliate links. This means that I will make a small commission from the purchase of these links but in no way means you will pay more for the product.
6. Boat Wheel wall decor – this can also be seen in my post referenced above about shiplap with no power tools.
And that’s how I plan to create a cozy Nautical themed bedroom. Hope this post has helped you as much as I plan on it helping me!
