As another follow up to the “so happy together” post a couple of weeks ago, here is a board for a big brother and baby brother.  I love the “sure we could try that” artwork as it seems like the perfect thing for an encouraging older brother to say to his baby brother when he wants to do something new.nautical shared nursery ideas

We saw Moonrise Kingdom over the weekend, and it was wonderful – a quirky, sweet story with details worth pondering.  I couldn’t help but fall in love with the cozy house at Summer’s End on New Penzance Island, and I only wish they had panned a little slower through all the rooms at the beginning so I could have absorbed more of it.  And how amazing were the scout tents?  I wouldn’t mind having one of those myself for little backyard retreats.  I won’t even get into the fantastic wardrobe used in the movie – there is just too much to mention!  Below are a few movie stills (doesn’t the top left photo look like a Norman Rockwell painting? found here).

Here is my attempt at recreating the feel of the house into a nursery.  I think the mural in that downstairs room is divine, so I went with wallpaper for the backdrop:

If you find the wallpaper intimidating, or a bit out of price range, this collection would look charming on a neutral (like Benjamin Moore’s Linen White) with a bolder choice for the curtains – something similar to the nautical showstoppers behind Suzy’s window seat above.

A clean and polished take on a Sherlock Holmes inspired nursery (since the movie just came out for rental!) with campaign chests that remind me of traveling via train.

Spotted! A fantastic flat-weave rug in a Moorish pattern.

The rug shown above from west elm is no longer available, but they do offer a similar pattern in other colors, as does The Land of Nod. If you’re drawn to the rich color of the original, Garnet Hill and Madeline Weinrib each carry similar styles in brown.
