Elin’s Vintage Modern Nursery


I wanted a nursery that my daughter could grow up in, not one that would always resemble a baby. She won't be little for long so I designed a nursery that she could grow up in or at least last until she was ready to design her room. I also wanted something that was vintage looking with a modern flare to it.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for this project was the color palette. We had just moved in our house and painted her room mint green before I found out I was pregnant. I designed her entire room around that color so I didn't have to repaint.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is vintage/modern. I like to combine a little old with a little new.

Project Details

Dresser: Great Grandmothers, repainted

Twin Size Quilt: Serena and Lily (Instead of a crib blanket (which babies don't really use) I purchased a twin size quilt for when she got older.

Letters: Handmade by Mom

ABC Letters This is the tutorial for the letters not the actual letters themselves. The letters were hand made by mom.


Favorite Items

The changing table, it was my great grandmothers buffet. I just sanded it down picked a paint color and repainted it. It was perfect for my theme.


Don't be afraid to mismatch furniture, repaint furniture, or do somethings yourself. Start early!

Your picture could I do that myself? My girlfriend is having a gender reveal party and we wanted to use that as the guest book. Except we want to offer blue & pink so the guests can do that as their choice .
