Nautical and Nice!
This week we're taking a look at the nautical theme and whether you live by the sea, your child is boat-mad, or you just love the idea of a room that looks truly shipshape, then this is the childrens bedroom theme for you! The wonderful thing about nautical rooms is that it gives the room a relaxed whimsical feeling of being on holiday all year round. We recommend creating a calm yet stylish environment with soft shades of pale blue and chalky white, and then introducing brighter colours in the accessories. Red is the classic combination with blue and white, but shades of burnt orange, bright yellow or dusky green can all work equally well. The moodboard below features our sailing boats quilt available in cot bed and single bed size, our sky blue gingham duvet and pillowcase set and our oh so snuggly soft tufted wool rug. We simply adore these new sailing boat and lighthouse string lights which look bright and colourful during the day and add a gorgeous glow to the room after dark. Personalised accessories are always immensely popular with little ones and these delightful gingham wall sticker letters are a perfect fit with this look. Choose from navy blue or red gingham, or a mix of the two! These nautical striped bags are super stylish and provide useful storage space as well as making great kit bags. Put the finishing touch to your child's nautical room with one of our lighthouse or boat themes wall clocks - perfect for your little sailors to check out the tide times !!
