Decorating a nursery for a little boy can be a breeze with the
myriad of themed bedding designs available. Instead of a sporting,
fishing or transportation theme, why not try a sailboat theme. A
sailboat themed nursery lends itself nicely to calming shades of
blue and dashes of sunshine yellows. This particular bedding set
from Sumersault is called Princeton and can be found at Babyuniverse.com.
This particular crib bedding
set is a perfect start for a sailboat themed nursery. It provides
a nice palette of blue hues with splashes of yellows, reds and oranges.
Pull out the colors of your choice from the comforter to customize
to your tastes. Paint the walls in a matching yellow to bring in
a sense of sunshine and airiness. A crisp white or white with blue
under-tones will also give your sailboat themed nursery a light
feeling. If you want to go all out, try a faux finish of glazed
white over blue to
in the clouds or stencil on a border of waves.
Remember, you don't have to purchase the entire set to get the
same results. It makes sense to mix and match and even use pieces
that you might already own. To play up the yellow, try using a solid
yellow crib sheet, dust ruffle or receiving blanket
To accessorize, bring in sailboats and simplistic sailboat prints.
Keep in mind that it is a nursery so there's no need to bring
in expensive, intricate sailboat models or prints. Try to keep the
shapes and colors simple. Maybe paint wooden sailboats in colors
that are in keeping with the palette.
This bedding set not only invokes a sense of coolness and calm,
but it is ideal for any little boy's nursery.
