Mandy is a photographer and blogger at Mandy Paige Photography who used her skills behind the camera to capture her other set of skills — design. Her son, Connley, is lucky to have a mama who put so much thought and energy into his little corner of the world. Paige used splashes of bright red to break up all the blue that can be overwhelming in a nautical-themed room.

Fresh Nest

The real crown jewel of this nautical-themed nursery is the hand-painted border that circles the room at mid-level. The designers at Fresh Nest Color and Design completed this room for under $500 by repurposing existing furniture.

This nursery by Little Crown Interiors is the perfect mix of ships ahoy and under the sea. The light blue colors are a welcome change from the darker blues usually used with this theme, and the beachy accessories just scream fun in the sun.
