Vintage-Inspired Kid's Room

Combine old furniture for an eclectic look.

Skip cutesy furniture for kids' rooms and invest in handsome antique or vintage pieces. They'll stand up better to wear than inexpensive new pieces and be more flexible design-wise in the future. Simple fabrics and an old pine dresser and bed — inherited, like so much of the furniture and objets here — inject character and warmth.
