Baby Lincoln's mom Ashley has been going to the circus since she was four years old, and has been collecting little items from the circus ever since. With Ashley's love of the circus, and dad's (photographer Jason Mize) love of vintage and antiques, like his vintage camera collection, a vintage circus themed nursery seemed perfect for their little one. Most of the items in the room are true vintage pieces and antiques, like the poster over the dresser from 1974. The lamps, metal shelf, and sconces also came from antique stores. Jason created the chandelier himself out of an old wire basket that he wrapped the inside of with burlap. The name pennant was handmade by Ashley, who has a custom gift business called Sew Fortunate. The large letter L on the wall was one of the few new pieces, and came from Urban Outfitters. To see more of this charming circus inspired nursery, stop by the full gallery.

This is so refreshing! I love seeing a nursery that is not "just another nursery". The creativeness of the circus theme carried throughout is inspiring!

My sons room is also done in vintage circus. I have been trying to find fabric for his curtains. Where did you find the fabric on the curtains. Love the room! Great job. Thanks.

I love love love the circus nursery! I have a question about the light-up letter "L". I found it at Urban Outfitters, but I am wondering about the color. The bedding we have has a deep orange in it, not red. However, the letter in your picture looks like it is an orange-red. How would you describe the color of the letter?
