Vintage French meets shabby chic in this girl's French vintage nursery! Starting with Restoration Hardware, moving to art and prints collected from across the globe, adding in a touch of Anthropologie and West Elm, this ivory and blush modern vintage nursery is now one of my favorite rooms in our house!
My inspiration started with my baby shower which was a vintage French theme. I took that and blew it out for Zoey's nursery!
My decorating style is a combination of new and old, vintage and modern. I love blending pieces that tell a story from years ago while adding newer pieces to add to that story and bring it all together.
The foundation of the room centered around the furniture and bedding which is from RH Baby & Child:
I wanted a simple, practical rug as I knew the walls and decor would bring in the color and focal points so I went with a basic tile rug from Flor.
After searching many stores for a rocker that would fit the theme, but also be comfortable and not break the bank, I went with the Graham Glider from West Elm. I love the color and it's so comfortable, even I fall asleep in it!
The gallery wall features art, prints and frames from various travels and hidden gem stores in Toronto, Mexico City and Vancouver. And a few online vendors:
Gold love print and small zebra art - Made by Girl
Paris map, un deux trois print, Zoey and bebe letters and florals - Rifle Paper Co
Silver ampersand - Anthropologie
Last, I framed my baby shower invitation and thank you card and incorporated into the wall. Those were customized by Posh Paperie.
I also knew I wanted to incorporate books in some way so I used old flower crates from Jayson Home and ended up creating shelving to feature Zoey's books, shoes, pictures and more!
The vintage French hamper is from World Market.
And last, the Je T'aime print on the wall gallery is from Project Nursery!
I have a couple favorite items in the room. The chandelier - which was my splurge and I am so happy I did splurge!! And then I LOVE the gallery wall. It tells a story of the places Zoey had been while she was in my belly, it's personal, French and made with lots of love! I had so much fun with it.
My advice to create a space like this? Take your time and remember matchy matchy is the enemy! Also, start with a foundation. That could be your paint color or a fabulous carpet or bedding. Whatever it is, start there and branch out and pick up pieces over time.
Oh and if you love your nursery, get it photographed! My photographer was amazing and photo credits to Roxanne of Lilibean Photography.
