Owen’s Room


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!

Decorating Style

I am most inspired by vintage/modern decor, but am truthfully DIY, thrifty, and hyper-budgeted!

Favorite Items

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!)

what color are the walls???


Wednesday 16th of May 2012


Thank you so much! The dresser isn't a pure bright white, but it's the same white as the Expedit shelves, if that helps at all. It also matches the Carter's crib... definitely off-white, although it's not obvious unless you have something bright white right next to it. Safest thing to do is look at it in person, I guess! Hope that helps! :)
