Coastal-Inspired Twin Nursery Reveal

I can't believe the day is finally here! I get to share our twin boys' nursery with you! Now, it might not look like a twin room yet, because there's only one crib. But we're going to try having them sleep in the same crib at first. Safety wise, it's totally fine to do this until they start rolling, but we'll see how long they last. The second crib could be in the room when they're a week old! We're going to learn as we go ;)

I love how the room came together; it's truly a dream come true! I wanted to create a soothing, coastal-inspired nursery that we would love being in, just as much as the babies. I knew I wanted to do a wall treatment, so my husband installed the board and batten. It elevates the otherwise very standard room so much! Next, I wanted a rug that looked like water and that would be durable. Other than all the baby must-haves, I also wanted to decorate with classic-looking coastal elements. 

All of the sources are at the bottom of the post!

Since we have a really small room, we opted for mini cribs. Once we need it, the second crib will fit right along this same wall under the sea animal prints!

I knew I wanted to play with pattern a bit in the room and I just love how classically sweet gingham is (especially for little boys!), so I went with this custom gray and white gingham crib skirt. I did custom off etsy because the options are VERY minimal for mini crib skirts elsewhere.

Mixing the more organic pattern on the rug with the geometric nature of the skirt plays so nicely together. We also did a windowpane pattern for the curtains, which nods back to the crib skirt, but on a larger scale.

I love the ocean prints we found on etsy so much! They're watercolor, so they look really high end.

When I saw this woven sailboat online, I knew I wanted it for the nursery! It's just the cutest!!

The mirror is another coastal nod, and I was so pleased to have found it at the price I did. It's a Serena & Lily dupe ;)

Shelves hang above the glider so I could put some decor up on the walls. I love this bible verse print! The blocks are turned around right now, but they have their names engraved on them. I can't wait to show you once they're here!

We originally had a different rocker for in the nursery, but when it arrived, we decided to keep it in the living room since it's a recliner and my husband liked it out there ;) So we got this one for the nursery and I'm so glad we did. I actually like that it only glides and swivels. It was only $250 and is such great quality!!

Before this was a nursery, it was my husband's office, so we had the roller shades on the windows already. They are great, we love them! But for two reasons, I wanted to get some curtains in here as well. 1. For style-- it's the best way to add height to your room! And 2. Roller shades have about 1/4" of a "light gap" around the sides, so even though the shades are blackout, some light still does come in.

We had these blackout curtains custom made and now when both the roller shade and the curtains are drawn, it's truly blacked out! I think it'll make their sleep a lot better. I'm also just in love with the pattern and texture of them!

I am obsessed with our rug and think it looks like water; so fitting! It's part wool, so it's going to be very durable. You can use my code (find it below in the sources) for a discount to this brand.

Thanks for taking a peek at our little boys' room! The next pictures I take in here will be with them!! I can hardly believe it. Thank you for being on this journey with us!
