Tyler Lee's Nautical/Beach Inspired Bedroom | Wishlist ♥
We are currently in the midst of updating our home, giving it a new lease of life with a fresh lick of paint, buying new soft furnishings and decluttering everything. One room which is almost complete is Tyler Lee's bedroom. He's now three years old and knows his mind, so we wanted his room to be inspired by something he loves, and if you're a regular reader of my blog it won't come as a surprise that he loves the beach, so a nautical/beach inspired room seemed like the perfect choice for his own little space.
Also, I think the beach theme is quite calming and that's just what he needs from a bedroom space because he's a very active little boy and anything that can help in calming him down and to get ready for bed is something I will embrace with both arms.
Tyler Lee's room is almost complete - it's had a new coat of paint, new bedding, blackout curtains, we rearranged the furniture, took down his cot and moved him to a big bed and picked up a few soft furnishings too, it just needs a few more little things to complete it and that's why I'm putting together this post, so I can save up for the things I want to add to his room and have everything in one place to remember and tick off once we get them.
The drawer on the wardrobe in Tyler Lee's room broke last week and I hate the wardrobe anyway - pine furniture just doesn't appeal to me, so I'd love to get him a new one and the beautiful stone white one above from Room To Grow caught my eye. There's a beautiful range of children's furniture at Room To Grow and I also loved their storage options too. Plus, I think the stone white colour suits the nautical/beach theme much better than natural wood.
The wall above his bed is bare at the moment and his bed doesn't have a headboard so I really want to make a little feature out of the wall. I'd love to have a banner hanging there, maybe with 'sail the sea Tyler Lee' or something along those lines featured on it. I really like the look of the banner featured above, the aqua starfish boards are a nice touch. I'd also love to get some beach themed prints and quotes printed out and pop them into some cheap white frames to create a photo collage on the wall. Some Polaroid style prints would look lovely there too. The Laura Ashley and nautical fabric bunting was something I found on Ebay and I think it's lovely. It's double sided too so it'd be perfect for hanging across his room.
I like to have bunting/lights, etc. in Tyler Lee's room for him to look at whilst he's going to sleep and I think the red, white and blue star fairy lights above fit the nautical theme really well, also, his curtains and a pillow in his room feature stars so they'd fit perfectly in his room - we tell him the stars are the night sky. There's no lampshade in his room at the moment and I love the print on the lampshade featured above, the beach hut print is really cute.
There's a significant lack of storage in Tyler Lee's room at the moment and when I spotted this star motif foldable canvas box I thought it would go perfectly with the silver star cushion that sits on his bed, it's also perfect for popping his cuddly toys in and believe me, he has a lot of them!
Finally, I spotted these life ring cushions on Pinterest and thought they'd make for lovely scatter cushions on his bed, I think the design makes for the perfect nautical cushion.
These are just a few items that I have my eye on for my biggest boy's bedroom. I absolutely love the theme and once the room is complete I can see it being a place that he loves to play and sleep in.
