Sometimes there is an element in a room that really tells a story. Vintage decor in a nursery or child’s room adds that little something that lets others know this room is special. Hand-me-downs that have been updated—such as a favorite family chair or slightly well-loved pillow—are always a welcome addition that brings richness to a space. Made over in your favorite design or pattern, vintage decor can live on for a new generation.
Add one well-loved vintage piece into a room, or breathe new life into it with a new finish, a coat of paint or reupholstery.

Finding a vintage piece that you love can sometimes be overwhelming, but adding an antique finish to something that seems ordinary can be lovely. Bookcases, dressers and even mirrors can be hand-painted and distressed in updated colors to bring that vintage feel to a child’s room.

Mix classic and modern elements to add a hint of vintage into a space. Although the piece may have been cutting edge in a different era, it still adds up to good design when combined with modern accents.

Choosing pastels and gold accents is a sweet approach. A soft shade of mint creates the perfect backdrop to give new life to a vintage piece.
