Lillie Mae’s Vintage Nursery


It's a feminine nursery with vintage and rustic accents.

Design Inspiration

I love vintage lace and antiques.  I also liked the recent pink and grey trend, this is my take on that.

Decorating Style

Antiquey fresh :)

Project Details

A chunk of these items are antique and are what I think make the room, the armoire (Round Top Antique Week), the dresser (Etsy - The Painted Cottage), the Italian side table (Round Top Antique Week), the framed floral lithographs (Round Top Antique Week) and of course every what girl needs, a chandelier...which was from the '20s and $200 at a local thrift store.

I think that fresh fabrics help to soften the older furniture, specifically the ivory velvet curtains and brass hardware ( and, respectively).  The tufted glider is from Ballards and was my choice because it doesn't look like a glider and I can use it in another room after it's nursery days are over.

Favorite Items

I absolutely love the bedding, the pictures don't do it justice.  The lace was pulled from an antique wedding dress and the bedding was all custom made (yet still cheaper than some of the "designer" crib bedding).  The dress was a family heirloom and a was a generous gift from my friend Claudia Hines.


Make a pilgrimage to Round Top, Texas for Antique Week!!

Clarification:  Antique doesn't mean expensive, everything I bought was cheaper than new pieces made from particle board that won't last the test of time.  Don't be afraid to pull something out of the dirt or a barn!  Look for good bones to work with like solid wood, dove tail drawes, beveled glass, original guilding rather than new paint, etc.  Also, don't be afraid to re-upolster or repaint something to fit (without being too matchy matchy) and ask for remnants if you have something professionally upolstered.
