This vintage-inspired nursery blends modern and antique elements to create a girly space without feeling too babyish or twee.
Rose's name, of course! I initially wanted to avoid doing a rose-themed nursery, because it felt too easy, but then I found the R is for Rose print and we received two vintage rose botanicals as gifts, and it felt like it was just meant to be. Also, I really hate babyish nurseries, so I wanted to create a room that felt appropriate for a baby girl but that also felt chic enough for adults to hang out in.
The perfect mix of modern and vintage

I love the bright pink curtains because I think they made the room so much brighter and more fun.
Don't rush it! Rose's nursery wasn't fully decorated until she was almost a year old, and my patience paid off. If I'd tried to throw it together instead of taking the time to find art and pieces that I loved, it wouldn't be nearly as charming. You won't regret waiting to find the right piece, but you will regret buying (and hanging) something you think is "just okay".
