From the beginning I knew I wanted a vintage teacup theme. I was scared to work with florals and painting a room pink for fear it may just look outdated and granny style but with painting stripes and picking modern floral prints it came together nicely to complete the teacups around the room.
The idea for this nursery came from a single image I came across on Pinterest almost a year ago, a stack of teacups. I knew if I ever had another little girl I would design a room completely inspired by that image. As the theme developed, I knew I wanted to keep the mood soft, with pinks and blues, and lots of warm vintage inspired pieces. Details were important and I believe they make a room. We mixed a lot of antique finds with new pieces made to look old, such as the furniture. Fabric choices for the foot stool, crib pillow, and rocking chair cushion were all chosen in floral prints to keep with the teacup theme. This room definitely reflects mine and my husbands taste and we have a true love of anything vintage.
A mix of vintage and DIY details. I don't like anything too 'matchy' in a crib set so I combined pieces from different places.

My favorite details is the 'You are my cup of tea' sign, the teacup lamp, and ruffle lamp, which were all made by my husband and I. I think these are details that Scarlett will really love when she is older and knows they were DIY projects for her.
Choose furniture that will grow with your child. This was important to me with both of my girls rooms, as I didn't want to dish out tons of money for a fancy crib that could only be used for a couple of years. Both cribs we've purchased convert to toddler and then full sized beds, the head and foot board creating the grown up bed. So worth it to make that furniture last!
