Blast Off to Our Retro Space Nursery Theme!

Hi there! I’m Keiko Zoll: writer, all-around nerd and a soon-to-be new mom. I’m thrilled to join the Disney Baby blog team and can’t wait to share these last few months of pregnancy and memorable moments with our new baby boy, due in late June. Nursery decorating is in full swing at our house with our retro space nursery theme: think 1950’s vintage vision of the world of tomorrow. As we get ready to blast off into parenthood, take a peek at all the retro space ideas and inspiration for our kitschy nursery theme!
