Vintage Inspired Kids Rooms

I love designing spaces for kids.  To me, a child's room should be imaginative and playful, functional, and ultimately a safe haven for it's resident.  It shouldn't scream "baby", but it can't be too grown up either.  You need the right balance. 

I love combining vintage elements into nursery rooms and kids rooms.  It might be about a great vintage wallpaper or a mid-century chair, a piece of art or a fantastic light fixture.  It might even be as simple as a retro color scheme.  Mixing the old with the new gives you a modern space with more personality.  And, I think that a room like that will actually grow with your child.

Here are some of my favorite vintage-inspired kids rooms...
