12 Nurseries Full of Vintage Flair

Each week here at Babble I love sharing my favorite nurseries with you–spaces that caught my eye, small details you can add into your own home, and so on. Last week I showed off pins I couldn’t wait to re-pin here. Today, it’s all about the vintage flair!

Soft color palettes, unique vintage finds, making old treasures new again — vintage is one of the most popular nursery themes, and it’s just oh-so-pretty on the eyes. Vintage is classic, at times elegant and even simple. But best of all, it has a warm and inviting feel and a comfortable style for your little. Forget retail! Browsing eBay, Etsy, thrift stores and flea markets are the perfect places for finding unique items for your space. Look for things you can re-vamp and give a second life to!

Click through for some pretty inspiration and ideas for your own vintage nursery.

    Shop Around It is such a great idea to hang vintage post cards or alphabet cards with a little string and clothes pin. It makes for a super-easy DIY. Right over the Jenny Lind crib which the Mom found FREE on Craigslist -- it's perfect.
