A Nursery With the Perfect Mix of Modern & Vintage

Home & Garden 47

There's an art to decorating with vintage pieces, and Vicki Eastland is an expert in the field. Not only does she know a good find when she spots one (ahem, that phone booth door), she knows how to mix vintage and modern finds to create a look that is far from contrived. While the red door stands out, there is an abundance of other details that you'll love in each corner of the room. Take a look.

Forget the mobile, go with a standing branch instead.

I like that she chose to keep the walls white. It keeps things fresh and doesn't distract from the details.

The perfect spot to read and cuddle. Loved those neat crates-turned-bookshelves!

And that might be the most fascinating stuffed little creature I have ever seen.

How fun to live in an older house with loads of character already built in. That fireplace is amazing!

I'm thinking Vicki will be getting some calls asking for her decorating advice now. Such a great room!

What do you think? Do you love the artsy details? Or long for something more orderly?

I don't like any of it. Whats wrong with a normal childrens room with characters and colors and letters and toys??? This doesn't look like a child friendly room at all.

It's a lovely mix of modern and vintage. We have a branch just like that in our living room. If you screw it to the wall it's not going anywhere.

My 2yr old would destroy this room but, its cute.

I like it! I love those framed cars pictures! I hate having commercialized characters in children's rooms, and trying to find bedding or room decor that isn't covered in Thomas the Train Engine, Dora the Explorer, Spongebob, or some other television character and also looks nice (read: not cheesy) is hard. I think that kids rooms should be a soothing place to go for rest, not somewhere splashed with bright colors and distracting graphics. I like light-colored paints, sturdy wooden furniture, clean-looking pictures, and not too much furniture to clutter up the space. :)

Why do people hire decorators for a nursery??  It seems a little phony and contrived to me.

Is it so wrong to go with the ideas and actual interests of the people living there?

That's just my opinion of course.
