Vintage & Eclectic Nursery w/ Modern Touches
There are so many inspirational rooms and photos out there it was hard for me to decide which direction I wanted to go with her room. I am really inspired by rooms that are light and bright but still feel warm and inviting. I love organic, natural items that are fun and trendy as well as functional. And who doesn't love a good DIY project to make it very personal- I tried to make it a reflection of us while just having fun with it! I have no design training or history whatsoever and just did my best to create something unique and special for our little one.
Eclectic, Vintage Modern

*Dresser- $10 Craigslist score! Re-painted white, added mustard knobs from Anthropologie
*Chaise Lounge- IKEA EKTORP (in white)
*Aqua Rustic Side Table- Hobby Lobby
*Bird Print (above dresser)- From Etsy Shop Paperklip
*Moose Print (above dresser)- Urban Outfitters
*Curtains- Urban Outfitters Antoinette Damask Curtains
*Wallpaper (behind crib)- Yellow Jacobean Floral from Allen & Roth (at Lowes)
*Vintage Deer Hook- Urban Outfitters
*Mirror- From my mom (used to hang in our house when I was a child!)
*Pallet Shelves- handmade by my hubby- he did not use a tutorial, I showed him a picture as inspiration and he just made them how he wanted!
*Mini-Rocker Chair- this was my husband's from when he was a child
*Mini-Crib- Target- I would not have picked this crib, to be honest, if it weren't for the fact that only a mini-crib would fit in the space opening in the room. However, I am happy with the quality.
*Crib Skirt- it's actually just a blanket from IKEA
*Shelf- My husband got it from an old building from the 1800's. It contains lead paint so we had to scrape it and cover it multiple times with polyurethane to meet regulations. Thankfully it's out of reach of baby so it's not something I worry about her touching or chewing on.
Pallet Shelves, Re-purposed dresser, Rustic Aqua Side Table and all of the special items that were made by my husband and I or passed down from family.
Make a plan and a budget! Even if you end up ignoring both it's a great way to start and be on the same page with your spouse or significant other (or even just yourself). Don't stress or put unrealistic expectations on yourself- just do what you can when you can. Also- try to find something special from a family member to add in to the room- something that will be unique to your child's nursery. It's a fun way to involve the family and to fill the nursery with heritage, instead of just stuff. And have fun!
