Before & After: “Nautical or Nothing” Boy’s Room
Maggie and her family relocated to Heilsbronn, Germany and began decorating and renovating (lots of DIY!) their new home. Her son’s bedroom was livable but had no life. A subtle, but warm paint job and the addition of nautical-inspired accessories later and her son has a room that reflects his interests and personality.

Maggie tells us more:
My son is absolutely obsessed with all things Titanic so for his room it was a no brain-er, nautical or nothing. As you can see, the walls were originally a dingy white so I decided to add a warm khaki color to brighten things up a bit. When I added the bed and bedding everything else pulled together. I always buy new bedding before a move and in this cae the quilt and shams are from TJMaxx, the sheets are Tommy Hilfiger I found on sale at Macy’s, and the anchor pillow I made myself.
The bed is my favorite, I found this cute metal bed at an antique shop for $80. It had about 50 coats of paint on it so I used a grinder to get all the paint off and had a welder add a few inches to the legs to make it high enough to fit a trundle under. With a fresh coat of red and a vinyl “W” for “Will” this bed works perfectly with the nautical theme and a rambunctious little boy.
