You all know I love a good thrift shopping trip. Many times I pick up items that I just can’t stand to leave behind. Most times it’s a piece of furniture that I have to safe, but another favorite is fabric. I always check out window treatments and tablecloths. There are so many pretty retro/vintage one out there and you can always give them a new life as a pillow or frame it as a piece of artwork. Case in point during one of my last thrifting trips I found this adorable colorful animal filled window panel that looked perfect for a nursery. So, I grabbed with no need for it myself or for a client. I started building what I would do with it in a nursery and here is my plan.
No. 1 I would use the animal window panel and stretch it on canvas to make it artwork instead. It would be the focal point for the room and would look adorable above the crib.
No. 2 I love the retro vibe of vintage window panel. I wanted to have another vintage inspired item in the space and new right away would it would be. How amazing is this chandelier by Sazerac Stitches.
No. 3 I would go pretty neutral on the wall color. Perhaps a bright white and then use these orange roman shades with a white border.
No. 4 I tend to just go with clean lines when it comes to cribs. I really liked the square base on this one.
No. 5 You can never go wrong with a stripe in my opinion. I think I manage to squeeze one to every room I design. Love the width of the stripes on this rug.
No. 6 Another nod to the retro feel in this space is done with the rocker. I really loved the mix of wood and upholstery and loved the lines of the rocker. Top it off with a colorful ikat pillow. I have never seen one with such bold colors.
No. 7 My last touch in the space would additional artwork for the space. I love the animal bust trend in nurseries and when I found these felts ones with whimsical color accents I was sold. I like doing art groupings in odd numbers so, I would do 3 and get an elephant, zebra and Tiger.
Now I just need someone to have a baby so, I can use my thrifted find and put this plan to action!
