Heirloom display of baby keepsakes is a gentle reminder of infancy. A vintage nursery is a gentle reminder of simple days of the past. Combine the baby keepsakes and a vintage nursery with elegance and you have a room that make adults ‘sigh’ over more than just the baby sleeping in the crib!
Whether you use vintage inspired reproductions or the real thing, don’t overdo the theme. A touch of ruffles and lace, fabrics in faded colors, and soft patina of vintage pieces give a nursery that nostalgic look. Vintage never goes out of style so in a few years, you can change a few accessories or pieces of furniture and have a new room with little expense.
Rather than farmhouse or shabby chic, here are a few visions of elegance for a baby nursery.
Add an iron crib, use soft faded colors, and roll out an area rug and you have an elegant look in this vintage room.
