Today I am revealing our coastal nursery design board – a visual guide to designing your very own coastal nursery. I absolutely love designing nurseries and our baby boy’s nursery is no exception! Choosing a nursery theme helps give you direction, but you don’t have to go overboard with it. I prefer subtle selections for a more sophisticated look.

I already wrote a full post on how to design the nursery of your dreams so if this is your first nursery and you’re starting from scratch – I’d start there! However, I’ll quickly dive into the key elements that every nursery needs.
- Crib Mobile
- Glider and Ottoman
- Glider Pillow
- Side Table
- Blackout Curtains
- Curtain Rod
- Changing Table
- Changing Table Topper
- Comfy Rug
- Lots of Storage
I recommend picking out your key elements first before adding the little, fun stuff that finishes the room. It helps to look at how those elements are working together and then you can decide what the room still needs. Does it need more warmth? texture? contrast? color? height? These are the questions I ask myself when I’m reviewing my design.
Now you can move on to shopping for the accent decor. Below is a list of what you may need.
- Crib Sheet
- Crib Skirt
- Crib Rail Cover
- Changing Pad Cover
- Laundry Hamper
- Table Lamp
- Glider Throw
- Basket for Storage next to Glider
- Wall Decor like Art or Shelving
- Collectibles for Display on Shelving
- Frames for Art Prints
- Toy Boxes
