The shelving unit holds an array of vintage and vintage-inspired finds in bright tones of red and blue.
Paddington Bear was one of the first additions to the room and he sits proudly above the shelving unit. The old suitcase, the wheelbarrow and the toffee tin were found at Mill Market in Daylesford.
I’m obsessed with all things vintage at the moment (I think everyone is!) and so I decided to theme our son Archie’s room around strong colours, old world charm and modern vintage pieces.
who lives here?
Archie, one and half years old in Malvern East, Victoria, Australia.
I source items from all over the world - Etsy is one of my favourite place to find one-off handmade pieces. I also purchased some items from Parenthood and Supply & Demand.
The cot was purchased from Kiddy Country, the shelving unit from Ikea and the change table and toy box was custom made.
The cushions for the toy box at $20 AUD each, and the road runner vintage clock on the shelving unit for $40 AUD.
The cushions on the toy box have extra special meaning as they feature Archie's birth date.
The wheelbarrow and the toffee tin were found at Mill Market in Daylesford -- a great place for vintage trash and treasure.
Two of my favourite pieces in the room are his wooden animal mobile and bus roll sign that decorate his change table area. Since its not the most pleasant of areas at all times, it’s nice to have pieces that distract from the stench!
I think choosing a colour scheme and sticking to it is quite important - it really gives the room a cohesive feel.
And last but not least is Archie's personalised plane decal which takes him up up and away for his aeronautical dreams at night.
