Vintage Circus Themed Nursery

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.
