Inspired (and intimidated!) by all the great nursery designs on the web, I decided that it really is possible to create a great, personal space on a tight budget. Owen's nursery is filled with lovingly DIY'd, thrifted, and gifted objects that we've collected and arranged in little ways that make us happy. We aren't allowed to paint our walls, so it's been fun trying to figure out other ways to bring some color to the room. I know it still needs some work (need to get an area rug!!), but this room is now the most loved corner of our little house!
I am most inspired by vintage/modern decor, but am truthfully DIY, thrifty, and hyper-budgeted!

The handmade stuffed giraffe was sewn by one of Owen's sweet aunties, and the gorgeous rocker was gifted. I also love the way the DIY origami mobile and framed letter prints turned out.
Take the time to make things yourself! It truly is the best way to achieve an original, personalized design. (Not to mention the added benefit of being crazy inexpensive!)
