Modern Vintage Nursery


My daughter Chloe's modern vintage nursery

Design Inspiration

I spent a lot of time looking at decorating blogs and nursery galleries and created an inspiration board from some of my favorite rooms here!  I knew I wanted a vintage feel and something eclectic.  I knew I wanted blue walls, a painted Jenny Lind crib and wanted the room to tie in to the existing curtains.

Decorating Style

I'm not sure that I have a decorating style yet, but for this project I was going for a modern vintage feel!

Project Details

The wall color is Benjamin Moore's Robin's Nest (color-matched to Olympic) and the crib bedding custom designed from a site that is unfortunately no longer taking orders. The chevron rug is from West Elm, the curtains from World Market and the guest bedding from Target. I had several DIY items with tutorials:  The framed button monogram, chicken wire bulletin board, and mobile (or you can purchase a kit here which I highly recommend). I think those are the main items but some more details can be found on my personal blog post here.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is a toss up between the vintage tin plates, the DIY mobile and the IKEA spice racks that act as bookshelves!


Collect pictures from nurseries you love and try to pin point what it is that you love about them.  Then try to think of ways to tie in those themes or items into your project.

Very cute room! I love that you used many things that were not intended to be used in a nursery (spice racks, "grown up" rug and curtains, etc). It gives it a fresh, hip feel.
