Nautical whale baby boy crib bedding and nursery range by Alphabet Monkey

Nautical nursery style never seems to go out of style.

 Do you recall my Modern Nautical nursery mood board? If not check it out here. We love this fresh look for little boys nurseries and hope you do too.

We love this mix of geometric patterns modernising the traditional nautical look.

It’s so easy to work a nautical nursery so many different ways. This modern concept is all about pattern and colour but still mixing the good old shades of blues, navy and grey which are at home in any boys nursery.  Pair it with white furniture for a light bright feel or go more rustic with weathered timber styles.

Mixed below with one of our custom name cushions in navy..you can personalise you little ones space.

Creating a modern nautical nursery..

So with the arrival of the latest incarnation of our Moby Whale Nautical range I started thinking about how I would put it together.

Nautical vibes just never seem to go out of style for boys especially. Originally I tended to avoid these more classic themes as I felt that they were well covered by the main stream.  However over the years I have learnt that I have to not only look at what is trending in both kids and adult interiors, combine it with what inspires me but also listen to what my customer (you ) is asking for. And see if I can work it all together.

So with that in mind I have created our last range by taking on board your love of all things whale inspired and added a contemporary twist ..coastal style meets geometric cool.

Nautical style lends itself to so many different interpretations ..classic timber cots, coastal lime washed cots, simple white or grey is always a winner.  So whatever way you work it you can’t really go wrong. With my design board I’ve gone for the Incy Interiors Harry Cot because I just love that look of silver.  In fact I am a huge fan of mixing up textures and styles.  So I’ve mixed the casual coastal feel of the rattan chair from Family Love Tree and the jute rug from Freedom ..love the navy trim around it.

You could also mix in a rattan light shade and rustic storage or make the look more modern with a metallic geometric light shade. Ladedah is where you can find the crochet mobile as well as some other whale toys. And of course the geometric cushion and quilt is ours..you can see the range here.

I’ve also set up a pinterest board called Whale of a Time where you can find other whale inspired items to help you create your nursery..just remember not to have whale motifs on everything or it can get a bit much.  Choose just a couple to pop around the room for a more understated space.

Its up to you.. this is a starting point for inspiration.

Alphabet Monkey nursery..red and aqua whales

This gorgeous little whale set went off a while ago to its new home in Hollywood of all places..sounds pretty glam doesn’t it?  Well it does to me here in a little village in Oz anyway.

I was delighted when Mum Bernadette sent this pic of her little man talking to the whales on the quilt which she said he loves to do..how adorable is that?
