Under the Sea Baby Nursery Room Colors

While an Under the Sea nursery theme has to include a fair amount of blue, you can create a range of different moods depending on the other colors you choose:
  • Create a tranquil, peaceful mood by using a fairly light blue color. Introduce lots of green and beige to add to the relaxed color scheme.
  • Use a brighter blue and flashes of orange, yellow and red for a fun tropical feel.
  • To create a more mysterious, deep ocean atmosphere use a deeper blue with dark reds and browns.
  • You can achieve a more modern look by using a navy blue shade with white accents.

Under the Sea Baby Nursery Room Coordinating Items

Liven up your under the sea nursery theme by mixing in some of these coordinating elements:
  • Real shells, coral and pieces of driftwood from the beach.
  • Mermaids and treasure chests.
  • A diver or two.
  • An underwater shipwreck.
You can incorporate shells and coral in your baby nursery room by sticking them around a plain wooden photo frame or mirror or by filling a glass vase with them. Drill holes through the shells and make ceiling fan pulls and curtain tie backs. You can also incorporate them in a homemade mobile.

Create an authentic ocean hideaway by incorporating sea grass in your nursery. A sea grass rug is a good place to start.

Here are some ideas for incorporating ocean animals into your scenery:
  • Add an octopus lurking in an underwater cave.
  • Paint dolphins leaping through the waves.
  • Include a crab or two scuttling over the sea bottom.
  • Incorporate a giant clam brimming with mermaid treasure.
  • Bring in a few star fish and sea anemones clinging to a rock.
  • Leave space for a majestic whale cruising the depths.
  • Scatter bright and colorful tropical fish all over the room.
  • Don't forget to add a lumbering turtle drifting along.
  • And what under the sea theme would be complete without a darling seahorse?

Under the Sea Baby Nursery Theme Decorating Ideas

  • If you want to go for a cartoon type ocean theme, you can base your theme on The Little Mermaid, Shark Tales or Finding Nemo.
  • For an authentic underwater world you'll need to fill your walls with an ocean mural. If you don't feel up to painting the whole thing just paint the background and then add fish and seaweed using these gorgeous nursery stickers. You can't go wrong!
  • If you include seaweed in your mural you can paint a few little fish darting in and out of it and add your baby's name by painting one letter on each fish.
  • Another idea for baby's name is to paint bubbles coming out of the mouth of a fish and floating up to the surface. Paint one letter of your baby's name in each bubble.
  • A great idea for a more contemporary nursery is to paint your ocean animals all the same color as silhouettes. You can do this in almost any color but white on navy blue works particularly well.
  • Don't forget to add lots of cute and cuddly soft toys.
  • And last but not least, make sure you include some storybooks with an underwater theme on the bookshelf. Share the mystery and beauty of the ocean together as you spend hours telling him stories from the deep.
