How to do Traditional Nursery Style

The thing about traditional decor is that it never really goes out of fashion.  In fact it is not really about fashion - rather its about creating a room that will stand the test of time and that's got to be a good thing in my book. There's something about an old-fashioned nursery vibe that draws me in every time - here are a few of my favourites that I find myself referring back to time and again.  Enjoy!

Traditional cot with green linen crib skirt

The sweetest and simplest of traditional iron cots with a linen valance in the perfect shade of green.  Image via Jamie Meares 

Alexandra Tolstoy's traditional Oxfordshire nursery

The bastion's of traditional English interiors, Sybil Colefax and John Fowler helped Alexandra Tolstoy decorate this simple and classic English country nursery - I love the gingham curtains, the indigo armchair and the little painted cot.  Image via House & Garden 

Traditional cot bed with bumpers

The simplicity of this traditional cot bed with its neutral bumpers works so well with the contrast of the grown-up painting on the wall and the bar-cart turned side table - such a great idea! Image via Alice Lane Home 

Nicky Hilton's traditional baby girl nursery

I love the Tiffany blue Peter Fasano wallpaper with the pink accents in the cot bedding and the sweet little gallery hang of nursery pictures here in Nicky Hilton's traditional baby girl nursery for daughter Lily Grace. Image via Architectural Digest

Traditional blue gingham nursery

You can't go wrong with blue gingham - I love this oversized buffalo check fabric used here on the blind and nursing chair.  And I'm also loving the antique tallboy in the corner- it's so nice to see proper furniture used in children's rooms. Image via The Long & Short of it
