Mila’s Vintage Modern Nursery


Mila's nursery is a mixture of vintage and modern.  We combined old finds with new products to create a comfortable, storybook nursery. 

Design Inspiration

We love (obsess over) antique/vintage furniture.  At the same time, we love the simplicity of modern art and design.  It was important to us that we created a nursery which blended both styles, yet was relaxing for Mila.  Some of the items in the room were bought, some hand made and some were restored.

Decorating Style

Traditional, vintage, modern, industrial, whimsical.

Favorite Items

There are too many...The edgy block print above the rocker, the painted vintage dresser, the classic sleigh crib and of course, the whimsical canopy. 


Just go with it!  Have an overall theme in mind but don't be afraid to get a little crazy with the accents.

Where did you get the letter M and the mirror. Thanks x

The letter M is from Hobby Lobby. The mirror is vintage, but I'm sure you could find a similar one at maybe Hobby Lobby. Hope this helps!

This room is one of the loveliest I've seen in a long time. The canopy stole the show but all the other details made this room stand out.
