Vintage Nurseries: Colors, Styles & Accents

From Victorian to retro, there are a host of style specifics that fall under the “vintage” genre. And when it comes to the new baby’s room, that specificity comes in handy when deciding on cribs, colors and accessories. Vintage nurseries can have a beautiful aura and funky presence, but you’ve got to find the niche that feels right for you and the little one. Let’s have a look at some gorgeous ideas that will get the wheels turning!

Soft Victorian.

If you’re simply inspired by some vintage accents but you don’t want to put your entire room into the style, just have a soft and subtle adornment. Beautiful lines, princess accessories and a Victorian-esque crib filled with old-age spirits and feminine quality. And notice the chandelier hanging in the center of the room acting as a beautiful centerpiece.

A bit Mod.

The straight lines and square finishes give this nursery a bit of a mod look. Sophisticated and sweet, this style bodes well with our most contemporary trends but blends that 1960’s spirit well within its space. We love the burst of coral colors and textural, brick wall accent too, creating fun and interest.

Circus Time.

Going to the circus can be such a fun family memory. But better than that, you can bring that same liveliness and playful spirit into your little one’s bedroom. Go with a more subdued version with pastel tones and vintage circus adornments as to stray away from the kitchiness. It’s such a unique spin on the classic vintage nursery.{found on apartmenttherapy}.

Boho Style.

You can always look back to the 1970’s and grab inspiration from then too. Bohemian style is freeing, beautiful and even a bit whimsical with its soft fabrics and layering patterns. Just take a look at this gorgeous crib and how the entire corner is accessorizing in vintage, free-spirited flavor.

Flea Market Appeal.

Here’s another gorgeous example of a soft, vintage-inspired nursery with odds and ends with a flea market appeal. The light fixtures, the mirror and the rocker are eclectic choices but ones that still flow within the theme of throwback genres. This is such a bright and spacious room full of freshness, don’t you think?{found on nfinteriordesign}.

Vintage Infusion.

Why not fuse together vintage pieces with more modern and trending pieces. The mod dresser and sleek crib add some 60’s vibes to the space, especially when paired with the more eclectic and World Market felt ottoman and area rug. We love the subtle pattern pops and mixing of textures.{found on amberinteriordesign}.

Go with more of a retro vintage theme with bright colors and a 50’s, funky vibe. We’ve seen these colors used in old-age dipped kitchens but we also love the unique choice in theme and comfort. There’s a lot of personality throughout this space and a lot of personal touches incorporated in the nooks and crannies.{found on modernkiddo}.
