For the classic look, Pottery Barn Kids has precious, pink turtle themed baby bedding on sale now. It comes with a 3 piece madras crib skirt, hibiscus crib fitted sheet, and a madras patterned bumper of pure cotton and cotton batting. Love it! The quilt features darling turtle appliqués in solids and yarn-dyed plaids on pink chambray and it reverses to solid pink chambray. The bumper is pieced from a variety of colorful patches and detailed stitching and the tropical flowers bloom on the percale hibiscus sheeting given it that unique, handmade look. For your nursery walls, you can get our turtle wall decals that match. Great as shown here for decorating above a changing table or anywhere else in your baby’s room, our turtle wall decals are movable and reusable and come in pink, blue, and green. You can purchase them as part of our turtle wall mural or as individual turtle wall stickers. We think the individual turtles look particularly cute as a wall border. For more traditional wall art in your baby’s room, we love this modern turtle wall canvas from UK luxury baby products retailer MumSaid. The muted color palettes says “I’m now, I’m modern” while still maintaining its playful, whimsical feel. This piece is a stretched canvas wall art reproductions created with digital methods to produce the clarity and color resolution we adore. No frame is needed and the wall canvas can be wiped clean with a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. Finally, for knick-knacks, you can’t go wrong with this sweet ceramic turtle piggy bank from Elegant Baby.

Precious, Perfect Accents for Safari-Themed Nursery Decor January 31 2010

To get the most out of these precious decorative accessories, try lining up the elephant, turtle, and giraffe on a wall shelf or a dresser in descending height order – giraffe, elephant, turtle (far away from little one’s hands).  Or, if you have an elephant, turtle, or giraffe themed nursery consider three of the same kind of animals in a line or strategically placed on different shelves in your baby’s room. Designed by Elegant Baby, this line is called “Lil Buddies”. Each piece is hand-painted ceramic.  The aqua giraffe is 11” X 4 “X 3”, the pink elephant is 7.5” x 7.5” x 5”, and the green turtle 6” x 4.5” x 4.5”. For a more classic look, Elegant Baby has a cute pale blue bear bank and a pig piggy bank that comes with polka dots in popular nursery colors.  We think these banks would also be great baby shower gifts for friends. For more perfect, decorative accessories for your nursery, see our finds for hand-painted furnishings and themed bookends.

The bedding set includes a polka dot fitted crib sheet, a crib bumper embroidered with cute turtles, matching quilt, and bed skirt. The accessories are adorable.  Check out this beautiful little turtle accent pillow and coordinating wall canvases.  The turtle wall art pieces are 12" x 12" and come in a three piece set. Should you prefer another theme, Baby Gap also has a pink and green snail set for a baby girl and a navy and light blue sailor set for a baby boy that are pretty darn cute as well.

Swimmingly Sweet Turtle Nursery Wall Mural September 04 2009

Turtle Nursery Wall Mural
Turtle Nursery Wall Mural
We were inspired by this swimmingly sweet turtle nursery decor designed by Cocola.  The wall mural is precious!  They used ocean blue wall paint to create the sea and then added wall appliques or wall decals in turtle and polkadot designs.  The wall hangings are a nice way to bring a visual anchor to the wall. The color palette is fabulous - both classic, yet modern using a cool blue to bring calm and a light olive green to bring warmth.  The lighter wall design works well with the darker furniture and furnishings in the room so that upon entering, you feel like you are in the calm, warm seas of the tropics. How delightful!
We love this aquarium-like baby room theme for both baby girls' and baby boys' rooms - although it is hard to give up an opportunity to decorate in pink should you have a girl :)
You can buy the decor set at many retailers but we found this one at Maternity and Baby Shopping Mart.  A six piece set including sheet, bumper, valence, diaper bag, quilt, and dust ruffle is a very reasonable $169. The wall appliqués sell for $16 and the nursery wall hangings for $33. We wouldn't necessarily recommend buying everything (they also sell the mobile, lamp, and pillow) as that would be overkill. But, we wanted to point out the color scheme and the wall mural as being especially cute.

Easy to apply and easy to remove, these little sea turtles will look swimmingly sweet in your little one's room. Add our fish wall mural for extra seaweed, fish, and sea shells for a bigger look.
