Vintage Modern Monograms for your Little Girl’s Rooms

An antique rocker handed down from your grandmother. A red trike that your dad pedaled around when he was in nursery school. A faded baby photo in an tarnished frame.

Adding a bit of vintage not only adds style to your child’s room, but a meaning, family tradition and nostalgia for days gone by.

And if you don’t have that treasured object passed down from generation to generation, you can do the best thing:

Get the look of vintage: Go thrifting. Refurbish a garage sale find. Buy or create something new that looks vintage.

While I was gathering my favorite finds of vintage-inspired little girls rooms for this blog post, I quickly noticed that all these photos have something in common. Can you spot it?

M is for  Monogram!

Yes, each of the photos feature a monogram representing the precious inhabitant of each room. From a hand-made monogrammed quilt to a gold-painted paper mache letter to a felt monogram hoop art, a monogram adds a personal touch. Perfect for teaching your little one her own initial and nurturing some healthy self esteem. Seeing her initial prominently displayed in her room is a boost to the ego, I think.

I love this over-sized L monogram on this floral quilt paired with the teal and color crocheted blanket.

The gold-painted paper mache C monogram is tucked next to a shabby chic bird cage, vintage blog and bird prints. Not taking center stage, but adding a nice layer to this dresser-top vignette.

The “h” monogram appears to be a wooden one that has been decorated, possibly with washi tape? Or hand-painted? Either way, it fits perfectly atop those cubic shelves above the bed!

And last but not least, my bed of roses “A” monogram is composed of vintage-y pinks and mustard yellow¬†against a latte brown background. This embroidery hoop art will become that treasured keepsake that you will pass down.
