Emily from Massachusetts has sent us photos of her little one’s vintage-inspired nursery — another adorable entry in our Eye Candy Giveaway. Inspired by vintage pieces from her father’s childhood, Emily created a wonderful, original nursery design for Baby Paul.
Emily takes us on a tour…
“I [created] the nursery (with some help from my mother and husband) for my 4 month old little boy. When I found out I was having a boy my mother went through my father’s old things and dug out some of his baby clothes and dishes. We decided to use those, along with some other vintage pieces picked up at flea markets and online to decorate the room.”
“The clothing on the wall was my dad’s. One of the plates was also my dad’s and the other one was a lucky find at a flea market!”
“I chose Michael Miller’s “Dick and Jane” fabric and some other coordinating fabrics and sewed the curtains and all of the bedding for the room. This crib was mine as a baby.”
“This is the changing table area (aka closet). I used a vintage tool chest to store extra bedding in and added a cushion on top. Eventually we’ll add slow-closing hinges and use it as a toy chest. I framed some copies of vintage prints that I cut out of a book and added a vintage Lettie Lane paperdoll print inside the closet.”
“This bookcase was my dad’s when he was little, I painted it “Asparagus Green” to refresh it a bit. The clothing hanging above the bookcase were my father’s as well.”
“The blanket on the chair was made for my baby by my mother. [Here's] a closer view as she used vintage patterns to make the quilt. The peachy orange gingham fabric in the quilt was originally the curtains she made for my nursery as a baby!”
“I absolutely love the way the room turned out and we enjoy spending time in there. I think it’s a room that will be able to grow along with my little boy as well!”
Thanks, Emily, for the great photos! Love the family ties you infused in the room!
