Modern Vintage Nursery


I started planning our daughter Ali's nursery probably from the day I found out I was pregnant.  I started a girl vision board and a boy vision board.  Obce I found out I was having a girl I deleted the boy nursery vision board and went full force with planning her nursery.  I had an extreme obsession with gray, pink and orange.  Any free time I had I would wander the aisles at Target, Home Goods, Marshall's and was constantly on the internet surfing websites.

Design Inspiration

I was so inspired by this modern vintage nursery I had seen on the web and also while on our baby moon in Miami we stayed at this really cool eclectic hotel and wanted to created that in her nursery.  I loved how they combined metals, I learned it was okay to do golds with silvers.  Our hotel room had this very clean white dresser with gold knobs and I wanted that!

Decorating Style

My decorating style is very clean with different textures.

Favorite Items

My favorite pieces in the nursery are the art work above crib, I love the way it looks against the gray wall and that fact that it was only $9.99!!! I also love the white dresser and the gold knobs that I used instead of the drab gray ones it came with.


My best advice it too start a vision board and research early.  Save receipts for everything you buy, a lot of time I would buy items for fear they wouldn't be there later and then when I would bring it home it just didn't work so I would return it. Also keep in mind that what you like will change so its okay to adjust as you are putting nursery together.  Don't settle, if there is something you really want look on web it is out there! I really wanted gold curtain clips and looked everywhere I finally found them from

Beautiful job! I really like the soothing gray coupled with the orange and pink. Often times I think the orange/pink duo is so bright but you made it colorful while still staying serene. Also, love the wall art!
