Inspired Nurseries

Nurseries are a great place for featuring a fantastic vintage or graphic wallpaper, some of your favorite art or a fantastic light fixture.  And an eclectic approach here is great.  Mixing the old with the new gives you a modern space with more personality.  Try to have a base that your child can grow with, while celebrating the ephemerality of this baby stage.
