Another completely different concept for a nautical room, that doesn't involve a red, white and blue colour scheme, is to create a room using greys, sea blue and tan colours. This design approach is great for an older child. Walls can be painted with a sea and sky scene, in subtle blues and greys, or a mural can be applied. Driftwood & rope can be attached all around the bed frame. Place a seagull figurine on top of a bedpost. Use fish nets throughout the room. Neutral carpet colours can depict sand. Fish can be hung by thin rope from the ceiling and throughout the netting. Dressers and other bedroom furniture can be sanded, with a driftwood finish applied. Cranes also work in this driftwood and nautical theme, that resembles a castaway's lair.
You may use a single color and combine it with white, gray or black. For example, you can have a white platform bed, drawers, and tables while the rest of the items in the room are of the color pink. Or, you may choose different shades of the same color. This ensures that your room will have a sense of oneness.
A picket fence really compliments the butterfly theme and helps to create a garden inspired feel to the room. There are several options available in creating a picket fence. You can use real fence posts painted white, hand paint a picket fence onto the wall, or apply a pasted vinyl cut-out of a fence. Silk vines and flowers can be incorporated. A trellis with soft arches can be used to run the length of a wall. One of the most compelling butterfly theme bedrooms that I have viewed had walls that were painted a sunny yellow color, where the yellow graduated in shade. A darker yellow paint was applied at the base of the wall, and became lighter in shade as it reached the ceiling. Real fence posts were painted white and attached section by section to the wall. A soft rose color wall paint was then applied behind the fence section only. Large paper flowers were wound around the posts. Faux-painted grass, butterflies and ladybugs were painted randomly throughout the scene. It created a very whimsical and soft look to the room.
