For awhile now, I have wanted to add a nautical touch to our bedroom. Seems fitting, right? We both love the water and got married on the beach.
The wall color is already good to go, as it is this great muted grey color- a perfect neutral for nautical. I have already moved a couple seashell frames in there that kind of look like this except not so over-the-top colorful (T.J Maxx $5.99)
Lindsey and Jackie gave us a frame that is a light blue color and it's already nautical. We have that hanging up already. They also gave us a cute basket with seashells dangling from it. I haven't had a use for it.. until now (see decorative balls below). Hold your perverted comments, pleaseeee.
I also think our comforter is a go. This is what we currently have- Nautica Oslo, minus all those annoying pillows, gee whiz. Have you listened to comedian Jim Gaffigan talk about pillows? I concur with his feelings.
First off, I would like to recover our window seat. My mother-in-law did this for Matt a long time ago with a rich colored red paisley print that matched his old comforter when he moved in. I like the print, it's just really dark. Recovering this will be as easy as a trip to JoAnn's. I will also need to retrieve a couple new shams for the pillows on the sill from TJ. I noticed the fabric is just pinned with straight pins, so I think this is even easier than I realized--something I could have done a long time ago to brighten things up.
Here are my fabric ideas so far for this project:
Pretty sure I already hate the second one. Pretty sure it's between #1 and #3. Andddd I'm pretty sure I like the last print the best, but fear being too theme-y... Butttttt, I think I might just say to hell with fearing that. Clearly it's what I am after. Here are a couple other finds I would love to snag for our room:

I'll keep y'all posted!!
