Moms are captivated by vintage French rooms and little girls would love this "big girl" wire day bed. What a cute poster—a mix of femininity and strength.

This vintage blue and pink bedroom goes modern with a tall tufted green "headboard." How cute is the little French table in the corner?

Vintage paintings share the spotlight with a whimsical red chandelier in this sweet little girl's room. A delicate mini pendant light would also be pretty in this space. Wide pale yellow stripes are a nice visual effect on the walls.

Sunshine yellow on the walls and lots of natural light give this toddler room a happy vibe. I love the painted bed and embroidered throw.

A delicate pink pendant light and sheer floral canopy and bedding give this tot's space a soft feminine look. This room could easily grow with the child into teenage years.

Vintage chalk boards are both decorative and functional in this kid's room. A tot-size pink Eames rocker with faux fur throw would speak to the design heart of a mom who's loves Mid-Century modern style.
