  • Home ACKcents: Nautical Nursery

    Nautical Nursery Room

    Nautical Nursery

    Some customers of ours recently created a great-looking nautical nursery they setup for their baby boy. This family used many items from our Emporium of Nantucket store. The room looks great and we wanted to share some photos to inspire you. What a lucky little guy!

    Nautical Nursery Room

    This photo features our Nickel Paperweight Clock with Nantucket Map, our Nantucket Burgee wood sign, as well as a crib from Gracco, sheets from Pottery Barn Kids, shelves from Pottery Barn, and Sailboat Painting by local Nantucket artist Pat Peter. (Note: Other paintings by Pat Peter as well as the white glider chair are available for purchase at our retail store on Nantucket).

    Nautical Nursery Room

    This shot features our Libby Glider Chair (available in-store only), our Shells Night Light Table Lamp, and our Needlepoint Anchor Pillow. (Note: Wooden sailboat is not available for purchase online or in-store.)

    Nautical Nursery Baby Room

    Our last photo features three of our 15" Nickel Porthole shops, our Lighthouse Candle Lamp, and a customized Ikea Hemnes Dresser/Changing Table. By the way, we're very impressed with the dresser. The blue borders on each drawer were painted on and the knobs were replaced with nickel cleats.

    We hope this helps inspire you when creating your own nautical nursery. Do you have a room - nautical nursery or otherwise - that you think we should feature? We'd love to hear from you!
