nautical animals, bears and boats...

I got a reader request recently from Audrey. It sounded like a fun challenge:

I just found your blog via pinterest and I've been loving it! I have two little boys that are due for a room makeover, and they currently love animals and rainbows. I avoided themed nursery stuff and so I've never been a fan of "Noah's Ark" as a theme, but it WOULD let me incorporate their "favorites." all the stuff I can find is too cartoonish or just looks silly to me. I don't mind cobbling together my own stuff, but I'm looking for ideas. Could you let me know if you find anything that uses animals or nautical themes in a funky or bright way, without being too overproduced? Thanks!

Audrey, here is what I found in my stash of photos. I hope this gives you some inspiration! :

  1. I love some of these elements but i definitely couldn't do a whole theme underwater room. I think it would drive me crazy!

  2. Thank you so, so much! These will be really helpful!! I like so many different elements of each room! :) the wolf bedding and the real animal pictures especially stick out to me, but I also love the tiger mural and the incorporation of ropes into bunkbeds.
