So, I set forth designing her room with gutso. If you remember, this was the inspiration board I created for her room.
I mainly stuck to the plan, but had a departure here or there as things got underway. Here is her room now and I am happy to say that my little E loves it (and so do I)!
The window is the first thing you see when you walk in the room and I wanted it to be the focal point. I picked a neutral buffalo check fabric and had it made into a custom balloon shade that will grow with her as she transitions to a big girl room and so on. I painted the walls a soft cream to complement the biscuit color in the buffalo check fabric.
I had a scalloped slipcover made for an old glider we had in a white matelasse fabric and created a cozy reading nook.
The framed watercolor above the chair is of the town my mom is from and grew up in - Trier, Germany. The watercolor was given to us from my mother's family as a wedding present.
The book shelf is actually an Ikea Hemnes bookcase that I painted BM Prescott Green. I LOVE this color. Painting the bookshelf wasn't part of the original plan, but as the room progressed I felt it needed a cooler color to offset all the warm tones. I am so happy how it turned out.
Here are some close-ups of some of the really special things on her bookcase.
We love reading Little Bear!
The mirror below is from Target that I whitewashed. My blue and white lamp is from my step mother and dad given to me for my birthday which I love. And, her monogrammed baby cup is from her grandparents.
The dresser below is from Restoration Hardware which I am very happy with and I love how the gray tones work well with the cream walls.
E just turned 3 and will be transitioning out of her crib soon. This was previously Luke's crib. Her crib is very simple nothing fancy, but I love the bolster and touches of blue. The bunny plates above her crib are my favorite and I had them custom made from etsy. The picture below was taken at a different time so the lighting is a bit off. The walls and fabric are much more saturated.
Below is my husband's rocking chair when he was a little boy and I had a custom toile slip made for it. I found the hooks at an antique store and painted them BM Prescott Green. That is Peanut sitting in the rocking chair!
E's grandmother made her tooth fairy pillow hanging on the peg hooks.
Yes, those are some really purple walls!! I hope you enjoyed my little girl's room and have a wonderful weekend!!
