I have been meaning to post this for a while but have been so slammed with the birth of baby Charlie and the holidays. When I knew I was having a girl, I instantly knew I wanted to do her room in a mermaid theme. I’ve been obsessive over mermaids for years. I was torn on the colors and initially wanted to do coral and teal but I thought lavender and turquoise would be a lot softer.
My other daughter’s room is shabby chic princess and in soft pinks, gold, grey and white. I bought her bedding at Carousel Bedding (well my parents did) and I loved it! It held up until we moved her to her big girl bed last Christmas. I knew that’s where I wanted to get Charlie’s but was hoping they had something to go with my vision. I ended up finding their lilac collection and decided to get a solid color lilac crib sheet, a personalized crib sheet with anchors, a crib blanket for when she’s a tad older, a crib comforter for when we turn it into a toddler bed, a crib skirt, 2 changing pad covers and lavender shabby chic floral window panels.
I LOVE these personalized crib sheets from Carousel Bedding. There are so many different prints and fonts you can use for these sheets. They are 100% cotton and are printed with certified organic inks. I chose the little anchors because they reminded me of the ocean 🙂
I love THIS mermaid pillow. I seriously could play with it for hours. It’s the perfect addition. My 4-year-old is obsessed with it too.
I made this netting myself and chalk painted the letters with Dixie Belle chalk paint. I also refurnished my other daughter’s old furniture with an off white chalk paint then distressed it. I plan on posting a tutorial on this later on too. It’s a hobby of mine. It’s so therapeutic for me to paint and repurpose furniture.
Then I hot glued the letters to fish net along with seashells I spray painted gold and iridescent pearl.
My bedding is from Carousel Bedding. I received the crib comforter (for when she’s a toddler), crib blanket, 2 crib sheets, 2 changing pad covers, a crib rail cover (my first child was a crib rail chewer) and a crib skirt. The seashell crib mobile is from Floatology.
LILAC AZTEC CRIB SHEET // SMASHCOmpany
MERMAID PILLOW // ALYSSAMURRDECOR
This sheet is hand sewn and such a unique print. I love how it fits in her nursery. Amber is so talented and has so many other different styles so please check her out.
Another small business I’m loving is Alyssa Murr Decor. These mermaid pillows are to die for. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them.
PURPLE VELVET CURTAINS: POTTERY BARN KIDS
LAVENDER SHABBY CHIC CURTAINS: CAROUSEL BEDDING
I mixed and matched my curtains with Pottery Barn velvet (25% off right now) and lavender shabby chic on the inside. I love how it turned out. Here’s a closer look at the curtains:
MINT HIPPY RUG // LORENA CANALS
How cute is this Aztec rug from Lorena Canals? It’s the perfect color and vibe for this room but secretly I wanted to steal it for my living room. I’m definitely using one of their rugs for the playroom when I redo it in the spring. Amazing quality and durability and they have the cutest patterns. I had such a hard time choosing between patterns.
The best part about Lorena Canals rugs are that they can be washed in the machine. Absolutely perfect for parents of little ones.
I”m loving this Mermaids Enter here cast iron sign from Shine Box Primitives. It’s handmade and distressed and also comes in 27 different colors.
My friend Jenny is a talented artist and made this gorgeous sign for Charlie’s room. She’s so creative. I’m obsessed with it!
LARGE SEASHELL LETTER // SEASHELL COLLECTION
I love this personalized letter covered in seashells, starfish and sand dollars. It also has iridescent shells which I LOVE.
I was searching through Etsy for mermaid decor a few months ago and came across this gorgeous sign by Woodland Affair. It fit in perfectly with my vision. It is gorgeous in person and amazing quality.
LET’S BE MERMAIDS SIGN // WOODLAND AFFAIR
MERMAIDS & OYSTER SHELL // HOBBY LOBBY (40% OFF ONE ITEM)
FLOATING SHELF: CREATIVCOLLECTIONSMM
LETS BE MERMAIDS ONESIE // CRUNCHY CUTS
MERMAID KNOBS // MORRELL DECOR
GOLD FLOATING SHELF // CREATIVCOLLECTIONSMM
I had the hardest time finding shelves for her room that fit my vision. They were never the perfect color or if they were the style didn’t fit. When I came across these floating rope shelves I was so excited. The owner Megan was a dream to work with and was so helpful in giving details and making sure it was exactly what I wanted. She sent it in the loveliest packaging also. Plus they are priced so well. Use coupon code BLOGCOUPON for 15% no minimum or maximum purchase expiring on 12/31/2017. Anything in her shop can be custom-made.
My friend Jessica made this AMAZING mermaid dreamcatcher and I am absolutely in love with it. She incorporated all of Charlie’s nursery colors and spent so much time on it. I’m so flattered she would take the time to make her something as beautiful and detailed as this.
How gorgeous is this Capiz chandelier from Pottery Barn Teen?! It’s only $129 and you can get 25% off. I will warn you I had to but extra supplies to put this together. (well my hubs put it together) I searched for a beach themed chandelier that would fit in her nursery and when I saw this I knew it would fit perfectly. It was also the most reasonably priced Capiz chandelier I could find.
I hope you guys enjoyed a peak at Charlie’s nursery. I am posting a Youtube video tour below so make sure to check that out 🙂 Hope y’all have a Merry Christmas xoxo
