Hillary Lang of Wee Wonderful-fame has shared with us Baby Phoebe's nursery; now check out Oscar's space and get some insights on decorating a young boy's room. The beautiful avocado or jalapeno green she selected for Oscar's room blew us away...

Hillary tells us: For Oscar's room I started with his choice of color, green - and then his love of vintage campers and trailers and all things VW for his duvet cover. I really wanted to make a room he could grow with that wasn't too theme-y and that wouldn't need another "big boy" redo in a year.

The twin size bed is from IKEA and the charming duvet was handmade by Hillary. A real work of art. The built-ins (not permanently built-in) and shutters were vestiges from the previous owners of the house. Hillary painted them and covered the top with faux boix contact paper. She re-invented the shutters by using flannel fabric that was the lining of a vintage boy scout sleeping bag found at the thrift store.

Talent runs in the family. This book display was made by Oscar's grandpa.

Hillary continues: My decorating style... I try to mix the modern stuff I love as an adult with vintage finds - all the stuff I loved as a kid. I always try to incorporate my garage sale loot and eBay wins without making it look too much like a funhouse!
