A Nursery With a Vintage Vibe

Gabrielle Blair

Mom Jamie is one of those people who has their interior design style figured out. No matter what room in the house she works her magic in, it always looks effortless.

When it came time to put together a nursery for her son Hank, she went with her instincts and they didn't fail her. She gathered inspired bits around the house and re-purposed vintage finds to create this inviting space. See more of the amazing details, including a great chalkboard wall, below.

No corner is left untouched. The vignettes throughout the entire room are spot on. I'm especially loving the vintage fan sitting atop the little suitcase.

The chalkboard wall is made complete with a drawing and bunting both created by Jaime. The sleek toy storage bench was made by a friend. 

What did I tell you about the vignettes? The carefully placed blocks and baby clothes hung in anticipation of the little babe are impossibly sweet. 

Henry's first library was created by using inexpensive picture ledges from IKEA and it might be my favorite detail in the room.

Though creating a room filled with vintage details may take some weekly trips to the thrift store (and rifling through a lot of junk), the result certainly pays off, don't you think?

What's your take -- do you love all things vintage?
