One of our all time favorite tours on Ohdeedoh is of Oscar's room - bright green walls, great looking furniture and totally original accessories. His mom, Hillary, is the creative mind behind Wee Wonderfuls and has an unbeatable eye for style. She decorated Oscars room with clean modern pieces mixed with warm, nostalgic vintage goods from decades past, adding a little bit of the history of childhood to the space. It's a look that adds real personal style AND can be done a budget...

Hillary included vintage toys and books, an old school kiddie record player and lps, a salvaged stepstool, globe and boy scout tray. The curtains are made from the lining of a vintage sleeping bag.

Creating this look takes some searching, either through your local thrift store or online through the vintage offerings, but as a charming and more earth friendly alternative to the more commercial kids decor options out there, we think it is worth the effort. We took a quick look at what is currently available on Etsy - here are some of our favorites that would fit right in to a nursery or "big kid" room :
