A Sweet Vintage Nursery


I wanted a calm and sweet nursery for our first baby. We painted the walls a pale gray and added neutral details with a few pops of color. The furniture is a combination of new and vintage, mixed with some DIY projects. We did a lot of work ourselves, adding crown molding, a Dutch door and wall stencil and shelving in the closet. The room is small, so we maximized space by using a compact dresser as a changing table, removing the closet doors to make it feel bigger, and placing a round crib in the corner. A chandelier and closet lights helped brighten the room.

Design Inspiration

I was mostly inspired by bright, airy nurseries, and added some colored pieces at my husband's urging. Lots of Pintrest and Google searches!

Favorite Items

I love everything, but the round crib is my favorite. We found it vintage, cut down the poles, painted it, and added some custom bedding. It turned out lovely!
