Nautical Baby Nursery
Blogger Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo wanted to give son Toby’s room a nautical feel as a nod to her grandparents' fishing village in Cornwall, England. The sailboat mobile, a gift from Goddard’s siblings, has the number of her grandparents’ boat embroidered onto the one of the sails. The piece de la resistance is the hand-painted cloud blackout shade, which creates a focal point out of something that could have been ordinary. “Our friend and interior designer Jenny Komenda, who helped us decorate the nursery, made it herself, and it gives the room an open and breezy feel, even when I'm up with the baby in the middle of the night,” says Goddard.
