Nursery Inspiration

So far, I have two things purchased for the nursery decor (from Etsy, of course).
The theme will be a non-theme.  I like vintage, but not too much pastel baby.  I want our little boy to have a boy room.  The colors will be beige, navy, red, and perhaps some browns.  I'm not limiting those colors, but those will be the main ones.
Ok, so the two things:

Print from PebblesPrints

Vintage 70's Children's Poetry Book (Recyclarama)
(I plan to take some of the pages and frame them in a series... 
I adore the bright colors and the precious illustrations!)

 There are more, but I'll show them when we actually get them framed and on the wall.

What do you think?  Any more advice on things for vintage decor?  I'm thinking some wire or wicker baskets on shelves and/or cubbies... I am going for something fairly eclectic.

I've never had more fun nesting and dreaming.


  1. What perfect items for your little guy's nursery! I adore the vintage illustrations...talk about one-of-a-kind. I remember having so much fun putting my Cricket's nursery together. It is still my favorite room in the house. :) Enjoy this special time! xo

  2. I like it! I am sure it will look great!! You are so goo at that kind of stuff :)

  3. Hello! Thanks for showing the book you bought from my Etsy shop. I always had your idea in mind when I put it up for sale, it will be a lovely addition to your nursery.

    Have fun nesting and dreaming!

  4. Love the inspiration so far! I can't wait to see what all you come up with! Before we knew what we were having, I thought it would be really fun to have some vintage cars, trains, trucks, etc. as decor. One of my favorite things to do when decorating the nursery was to walk through our local antique/flea market...you never know what you'll find! If you have something like that, I would definitely encourage you to check it out for inspiration and thrifty vintage finds! Have fun!! :)

    ps. Eclectic is my favorite "theme"!

  5. What a cute idea!! :) You are so creative. I love it!

  6. Very cute!!! I'm a little behind - sorry. I haven't read blogs since we got back from Italy.

    My friend Katie did this for her daughter's nursery, and I thought it was so cute. It's just a little glimpse, but it might give you some ideas. I loved the old vintage toy theme. http://babysevere.wordpress.com/2010/03/29/nursery-rhymes/


Your words make my heart smile.
