Sweet Vintage


Nothing seems more girly and feminine then soft shades of pink and green. I’ve passed along the excitement for all things pink to my own daughter and I hope her eyes always twinkle when she sees a perfectly pink frosted cupcake or sparkly fairy costume. Ella and Halle’s mother Hana also likes things soft and pretty (with a dash of vintage) because she created a nursery filled with sweetness and light. Hana was creative with her finds and with a limited budget crafted many of the extras herself.

Design Inspiration

I wanted to have a soft and sweet space for my girls to sleep and play. I started with a simple color palette of pink and green and added a few color touches around the room!

Decorating Style

A little of this, a little of that, make it work together

Favorite Items

I LOVE the vintage planters! I bought them on ebay and loved how they look in the nursery!
I also love the baby quilt I made for my daughter using varoius designer fabrics in shades of pink, green, brown, and aqua.
The shabby chic garland is a simple yet beautiful project you can do yourself using strips of fabric, ribbon, and various trinkets. Tie in a few drapery clips to hold photos of your baby or other sweet mementos.


Hope you get some inspiration for your own nursery!

[...] A Sweet Vintage Room – I liked the colors used here. I also love the vintage planters used to hold the cotton balls. I like the hand made touches as well. [...]

[...] No se si es una guinalda o un simple adorno, pero me encanta el amasijo de recortes de telas, cintas y demás, sin coser, colocado como por casualidad. Esta preciosidad la he visto en Proyect Nursery. [...]

Hi Missy!

You can try POMLOVE on Etsy. Maybe they ship to the UK? Send the seller a message to see if she would ship there.

If you can’t get them shipped there, Martha also has instructions on how to make them:

Good luck! Kim
