Inspiration for Vintage Style Kids Rooms

I just added to my shop a bunch of new vintage artworks suited for decorating a kids room or nursery. A bedroom doesn’t need to feel juvenile just because it belongs to a kid! In particular, vintage illustrations can lend a touch of whimsy while also playing nicely with the more grown up decor in the rest of your home.

Do you love vintage style, but don’t know how to incorporate it into your kid’s room? You’re not alone. It can be tricky to find the right balance between old-fashioned and modern, but it’s definitely possible. Check out these inspiring ideas for creating a beautiful and stylish vintage kids room. Your child will love spending time in their unique space!

Recreate the Look with Vintage Art Prints

Here are some of our nursery & kids vintage art prints that would feel right at home in these timeless children’s rooms.

I love these for a gallery wall (the first three prints are available as a gallery wall set as well!) or as a sweet finishing touch to a quiet corner or a nightstand arrangement.
