Quaint Vintage Nursery Themes, Decorating Ideas and Decor for Baby's Room

Vintage nursery themes are a favorite of parents who view the past as a romantic time in history. The feeling of being surround by items steeped in the past gives some a sense of place and belong. Plus, there are families that, like me, have a difficult time getting rid of pieces that have been in the family for generations.

The thought of these items being sold at flea markets or on EBay is unacceptable so they are faced with the task of finding ways to include these treasures in the nursery and other rooms of the home.

The vintage nursery pictures that we have to show are examples of how other parents have managed to decorate using antiques that have been passed down to them or picked up at garage sales or second hand stores.

An old trunk in the attic packed full of antique quilts holds a treasure trove of possibilities for this style of nursery decor, faded fabrics, worn spots and all! Wooden quilt racks on the nursery walls decorated with vintage quilts made by your baby’s ancestors are priceless and more beautiful than any vintage artwork you could ever buy. If the quilts are damaged beyond repair, consider salvaging portions of them to make some shabby chic pillows for the nursery rocker, a patchwork teddy bear and other nursery decorations with a look of "long ago".

If you have a shadow box filled with autographed baseballs from back in the day with a baby boy on the way, you are to be envied because vintage nursery themes decorated with baseball memorabilia are all the rage! And if dad has some old baseball cards that he has hung onto since his own glory days on the diamond; well, you have the makings of a unique baby nursery that is full of history and truly one of a kind!

A capital way to kick off this theme is with vintage circus posters. Big Barnum and Bailey prints and pictures lining the walls open the door to decorating the rest of your vintage nursery theme with your collection of carousel horses or your favorite circus animal from lions, tigers and elephants to trained seals. I once decorated a vintage nursery in a circus train theme filled with vintage toys that was absolutely delightful!

I love the colors and patterns on the old cowboy print fabrics from back in the 1950s. Pick up a few old cowboy pictures in black and white, throw in a set of vintage cowboy baby bedding made from these fabrics and your little cowpoke’s vintage nursery theme will stand up to any bunkhouse ever found in the old west.
