Vintage Circus Nursery!


A vintage circus nursery for our sweet baby boy!  While the nursery is mostly gender neutral, I brought more blues, greens, and greys into the decor. The vintage circus decor brings some color, fun, and character to the room.  All of the different patterns are eye-catching as well.  I smile every time I'm in that unique and beautiful room!

Design Inspiration

The nursery started out as a room for our daughter 2+ years ago but she recently transitioned into a big girl room.  I was initially inspired by the bold pattern of the curtains that reminded me of the circus.  Then I had a great time finding vintage circus prints on etsy and everything took off!  Who doesn't love the circus?!

Decorating Style

I love lots of color and fun patterns.  I also wanted hands-on decor that could be enjoyed by my kids (puppets, stuffed animals, vintage playing card blocks, etc.).

Favorite Items

I'm in love with all of the prints, so that's a tie.  So I would say my favorite item is that crib, oh it's the sweetest ever.


ETSY!!!  I loved the idea of having a unique and fun place for my baby and felt that in order to achieve that, I needed to stay away from the the typical nursery decor you find in all the baby stores.  There are so many talented artists on etsy that helped deliver my ideas for the nursery.
