Huntley’s Vintage Glam Nursery Tour

IMG_9847

Description:

Originally I had envisioned a modern chic-nursery in teal and yellow, but fell in love with this crib (not at all modern) and decided on a completely different style for this nursery.

When I was pregnant, I would always be on the lookout for things that would work in the nursery. Sometimes, I would just buy things because I loved it, not because it would match – you’ll notice I use tons of prints and patterns. If you knew me, you would know me as a collector of vintage! My mother-in-law is a perfect example of this, she purchased from flea markets/antique stores, etc. some of the most beautiful vintage things including the ceramic shoes, cream hanger hook, and wooden gold floral piece in the corner. Three of the frames and art on the gallery wall are also vintage, two of which I painted in gold glitter.

I knew pink would be perfect for this vintage-glam theme, but my husband didn’t want a bubblegum pink and so we decided on this pretty iced peach.

As some might think this small room seems a bit cluttered and too small for all that’s in it, Huntley just loves taking tours around her room with so much to see and touch!

Design Inspiration:

The inspiration for our baby girl’s nursery all started with this beautiful Bratt Decor crib and vintage dressers!

Decorating Style:

Nothing to match-y, personalization is key! Many of the things that were used in the room were either gifted or found at thrift stores and on Craigslist. One of my favorite gifts was from a cousin of mine who got a little ceramic shoe personalized with Huntley’s name in gold handwriting – I thought this was such a sweet gift and so perfect in the room!

Nursery Plans!

OK, if you know me, you know that I love to shop and I love to decorate! Half the excitement of finding out the gender for me was for these reasons! I know that’s terrible, but I’m being totally honest with you!

As I have mentioned. I was incredibly excited to find out that we were having a girl. I had already bought the crib and matching bedding for our little princess, even though we didn’t know the gender! But not to worry, I knew what I would do in case we found out we were having a boy, and don’t get me wrong, that nursery would’ve been badass! But, we’re having a girl and it isn’t going to be much different than Huntley’s nursery, other than it’s a tad bigger than hers and probably won’t get chandeliers since Tanner does not want to deal with those again (unless, I can’t help it and get an electrician…wink*). Instead of a Bratt Decor Casablanca crib like Huntley’s, this baby girl is getting a Simmons Monaco Antique Silver Crib. I know this crib might not be as high-quality as the Bratt Decor crib, but I got a great deal on it and just couldn’t pass it up! Also, I got a a beautiful crib bedding set. The maker is Cottontale Designs Lollipops & Roses (also, not as high-quality as Huntley’s Bebe Chic Angelica), but matches nonetheless – go figure!
