As soon as we made the decision to purchase our new camper, I started brainstorming ideas for decorating it. I LOVE our camper, but the typical 90’s style dark upholstery, dated window treatments, and bare walls make me cringe. After debating with what vibe I wanted our new home on wheels to have, I decided to go with a vintage/modern feel – classic camp style paired with clean details.
After I took down the dated valences and curtains as fast as humanly possible, the first space I tackled was the bunk room. Our kids refuse to sleep under comforters, so instead of spending money on bed sets, I opted for our favorite “The Big One” blankets in a classic tartan plaid and matched them with solid sheets we already had. The bedding was super simple to find and I love the way it looks on the bunks, which is saying a lot because I’m usually extremely indecisive!
Decorating the walls, however, hasn’t been quite so easy. One downfall of camper decor is that you have to walk the fine line between too much and not enough. To prevent the walls from looking cluttered, I wanted to find larger stand-alone pieces to tie the room together. Another downfall of camper decor? Nothing can be too big, heavy, or fragile, since traveling can get a bit bumpy and it’s important to keep the tow weight down as much as possible. Enter Oxford Pennant!
In my search for wall decor, I came across these vintage pennants and knew immediately that they would fit perfectly with the space! Much to my surprise, Oxford Pennant is located in downtown Buffalo! I have no idea how I had never heard of them before, but I felt like I had discovered a local hidden gem! I was super excited to collaborate with them for this amazing “Home” pennant (along with one other style that will be in the “Master Bedroom” of the camper, which is almost ready to reveal!).
The pennants are the perfect size, lightweight, and mesh great with our classic camp style! We chose to hang them on the walls with double-sided 3M poster tape and it worked really well – but there are so many other fun ways to display them. Even cooler? Oxford Pennant takes custom orders for pennants, which would make for a fun party favor idea for a wedding, shower, or birthday party – not to mention awesome business marketing materials!
I still have a few finishing touches to the bunk room – hanging the kids’ glow in the dark stars on the ceiling and organizing their toys and “play clothes” in their cubbies – and A LOT left to do in the rest of the camper – but I’m very pleased with our decor progress so far! I’ll be busting my butt this week to get things as presentable as possible since we’re heading out on our first excursion of the season this Friday (weather permitting)!
