modern meets vintage in this colorful and whimsical nursery for a little girl due May '11
I wanted to create a fun and cheerful room for our little one.
I like clean modern lines, with little punches of vintage-inspired or nostalgic pieces.
I browsed Project Nursery's gallery and made mental notes/screenshots on my laptop to create a virtual visual board to get ideas going--anything that caught my eye would go into my little folder and then I started being able to filter things, beginning with repetitive colors I was choosing, etc. I also have become a HUGE fan of Etsy for so many beautiful and unique pieces, such as the custom bedding on our crib, beautiful wall art and colorful hanging poms and clothing.
crib: sparrow, oeuf
bedding: custom, tiptoe studio on etsy
glider: bel bambini, part of cottage glider line
dresser: bargain find $50!
wall art above dresser: "Creative Thursday" by Marisa Haedike can be found on on Etsy or creativethursday.com
hanging poms: pom love on Etsy
custom items (rec'd as gifts from family): growth chart, crown wall art, "true" wall art
I really love the "total look" of the room once everything came together! Possibly, the bedding or the wall art or hanging poms?!
just have fun with it, pick things up as they catch your eye and then find a common ground to make them all work!
