I've had the melody to "La Mer/ Beyond the Sea" in my head all week, ever since I came across this beautiful art print "The Salt Water Cure." At last, my 4-year-old son pleaded "stop singing, Mommy. It hurts my ears!" The song was the inspiration for this Nordic-themed nursery, which has a Scandinavian twist. It evokes tranquillity and harmony, apparently all the things that my singing voice does not. Cool tones, raw, untreated wood and nautical motifs outfit a nursery that any Salty Little Sailor would be proud to call home port.
