Hello sweet people! I thought I’d show you a few photos of my daughter’s room today. I’ve mentioned a time or two that I’ve been working on it and while there’s always more I’d love to do, I’m just going to call it done. Yay!
When I was first thinking about what I should do in this room, I was in such a quandary. I like things neutral, while my daughter’s favorite bright color changes by the day. With that in mind, I hoped to create a space that I thought blended well with our home, but was still cozy and fun for my four-year old Little Miss. In the end, I chose to keep things as neutral as possible and just let her toys add the colorful jazzy part 🙂
The color combination in this room makes me think of Neapolitan ice cream…so yummy…with lots of pink, brown and creamy white. The duvet and shams are from Restoration Hardware. They’re soft pink and have ruffled frayed edges, which I think gives them a nice old well-loved feeling. I found the sheets at Bed, Bath and Beyond and couldn’t believe how well the color matched. I love the pattern too…very simple with a white background and pink leaves.
Of course, I had to add some flowers to pretty things up. I found some beautiful peachy-pink Stock and some Chamomile too. I popped them into this old enamel bucket for a nice informal flower arrangement.
A few of the things in her room I made…the slipcover for the lampshade, the bedskirt, the brown bed pillow, the chalkboard and the white pennant flags. Gotta give a shout out to the Mister too since he made the bench.
I just finished the bedskirt this week. Whew…was that a job! All those gathers…I was wondering if my sewing machine was going to be able to manage. Luckily, it got ‘er done. I made the pennant awhile ago. You may remember me telling you that my daughter thought it looked like shark’s teeth. She told my mom that when she first saw her her room she was “torrified.” Terrified and horrified all rolled into one…how nice. Luckily, she’s okay with it now 🙂
I wish I had more pictures to show you, but I had a hard time just getting the few that I did…the room isn’t very large and the light is a little off, so photography is a bit of a challenge. There’s not that much more to see, just her little kitchen and the closet doors 🙂
Hope you have a good weekend!
