Inside the Design: Modern, Vintage Nursery Inspiration

Inside the Design: Modern, Vintage Nursery Inspiration

When not writing or styling, I love thinking up creative design concepts for myself and friends. Here's a look at what I put together when planning a friend's daughter's nursery earlier this year...

I loved putting together this inspiration board recently for a friend expecting her first baby (a girl!). I used the amazing Night Florals removable wallpaper from Chasing Paper as a jumping off point for the space, which includes an existing wall of dark bookshelves that the owners wanted to keep intact for the historical integrity of the home, which is a Craftsman style. Along those same lines, I wanted the room to have a vintage feel, mixing in modern, fresh and playful touches to keep it from looking too traditional. I stuck with a bright, poppy color palette, inspired by the wallpaper.
