Vintage Pink and Aqua Inspired Nursery Theme for a Baby Girl

The bedding that we used for our baby's
vintage inspired nursery theme
was made from House Inc. fabrics. I bought some of the things from House Inc., but my friend made the bumper, diaper stacker, soft blocks and comforter. The hanger is vintage repro. The crib mobile is chenille bunnies (new Wendy Bellissimo).


I found the green cabinet in an antique store in my hometown in Marshall, MI. It can be turned on its side to use as a toybox, but in order for it to be safe I would need to install a special safety hinge. I found the vintage toys and storage canisters at a flea market and there are vintage decals on the vintage glass jars. The hankie is vintage with Jack & Jill.

The Jenny Lind crib and changing table that we used to furnish the baby's vintage inspired nursery theme are new (we got them from Penney's!). We painted and distressed the letters over the changing table to spell out "Vivian". The picture of the child in the raincoat is vintage. It's hard to tell from the photo, but every color is a different piece of fabric or felt.

The chest of drawers was my brother's as a kid. It was navy blue, but we painted over it to make it a pretty shade of aqua, and I love that some of the old navy blue has been peeking through in areas of wear. The lamp is vintage. I tea-stained the shade and added the pom pom fringe trim which was just perfect for our baby's vintage inspired nursery theme.

The chenille rocker is new. The clock is a vintage reproduction. The quilt was handmade by my aunt and was given as a gift to my baby girl, Vivian, when she was born. The curtains and canvas storage bins around the room are Target Shabby Chic.
