Mila's Whimsical Nursery

My Room

Name: Mila (2)
Location: Dallas, Texas

Two years ago, we had just finished Mila's nursery. I had a precious newborn, and it was perfect. A lot changes in two years, though. No longer do you need changing pads, rockers or an array of blankets. Instead you need toys and kid-friendly furniture. So it's out with the old, and in with the new. When I started re-decorating Mila's room, I knew I wanted to keep most of the same pieces, but I wanted to make it more playful for a toddler.

We love (obsess over) antique/vintage furniture. At the same time, we love the simplicity of modern art. It was important to us that we created a nursery which blended both styles, yet was relaxing for Mila. Some of the items in the room were bought, some hand made and some were restored.
