After choosing the color scheme, I found this adorable bedding with Parisian flair…so that became the underlying theme of the room. And painting the bed a fun radish color helps it pop off the wall for more weight and impact.
There were so many fun colors to pull from, and the No-Sew Pillows were a great opportunity to add more prints as well.
I scored this mirror ages ago and it’s been waiting for the perfect spot. Proof that you don’t need to shop kid’s stores for children’s rooms. They are little people, but can still appreciate big design.
I originally wanted the bed on a different wall, flanked by side tables. But the dimensions of the furniture and room didn’t allow for that floorplan, so it sits snugly in the corner. The main pieces are quite substantial, so I love the juxtaposition of the leggy side table (borrowed from another room, along with a lamp that lost it’s home after Lamp-A-Palooza). It’s the perfect spot for her Eiffel Tower Jewelry stand.
I love to layer rugs over carpet for more color and texture. And the stepstool proved necessary due to the unexpected height of the bed!
I was surprised how great the monogram turned out…and it’s held up fabulously!
The sliding doors made it difficult to utilize the closet, so I just took them out. By painting the inside and adding ribbon trim to the shelves, it becomes part of the whole room design.
I made the fabric banner to bring more pattern and youthful energy to the room. Babygirl loves having all her books within easy reach too, so the bottom shelves are dedicated to them.
All kids love hidden nooks, so the unused corner of the closet became her own special reading spot!
The Paris prints are a nice vintage touch in the room.
Painting the highboy a glossy yellow was the best decision I made in the room. It is definitely my favorite piece. I know my grandparents would love that their dresser found its way to her room, and with such a fun impact.
The DIY Canvas Art is a fun way to customize the room, and show off her personality.
I thought of leaving the side wall bare, but couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a fun Gallery Wall.
The collection on the memo board and magnetic strip is constantly changing, and she loves having control over what she displays. I foresee changing out the magazine art quotes as she grows, and the Suzy Ultman prints can easily be swapped as her taste changes as well. I’ll gladly move the DIY nailhead trim art to another part of the house if she tires of it!
There is definitely a lot of strong colors in this room, but perfect for a fun-loving little girl. I also mixed several different patterns, but kept them all in the main palette of aqua, radish and yellow for cohesiveness. The black accents ground the room and lend some sophistication.
She may be young, but she can still appreciate special touches like a sheepskin throw rug.
And fancy accessories like mirrored trays to hold small treasures.
