To complete your vintage nursery look, all that's left is the ideal color scheme. Whether you choose to go girly with shades of pink or more masculine with shades of blue, keep it soft and delicate and mix in shades of cream and accents of burlap. For a neutral color palette, go with mint or pale yellow or light caramel colors with subtle chocolate brown accents. You can't go wrong with soft colors, creating an ever-calming environment for your baby. Keep the patterns simple, too. Soft toile patterns or a few accent pieces with muted stripes and polka dots are all you need to keep with the vintage theme.
Here's to many nights of beauty, luxury and sleep for you and your little one!
