under the sea :: mermaid nursery

oh, the joy of decorating a nursery! there’s the excitement of expecting a little one, mirrored in the festivity of channeling this happiness into an amazing design project. there is also nothing like a nesting instinct to get a room decorated asap! while I was pregnant with brooke, i had lots of ideas and visions on how I wanted to decorate her nursery.  from the beginning, I knew I wanted to go with a mermaid/under the sea design theme. my goal was to create a colorful space that wasn't too girly, pink or "too baby". i wanted a room that i would have loved as a little girl and that brooke could grow into. as always, i kept my eye out for a deal and almost everything (with the exception of the glider) in her room was picked through a sale, flea market, thrift store, ikea and a few of my own childhood pieces.

i was inspired by the adorable, creative and unexpected nursery style boards over at laybabylay which are truly amazing. i love that all of her ideas can be easily transferred into home decor. i can't get enough! i decided to create a few mermaid room inspiration boards of my own since i'm planning on revamping our nursery of one to soon to be two. i realize some of the pieces are insanely expensive but that just makes the steal vs splurge finds that much more exciting and enjoyable.
