Updating girls room
I will be making some changes in Rosalie’s bedroom in the next few months and I wanted to record her bedroom as it is now. We have taken the side off of her cot, so it serves her perfectly well as a little bed. In May when Rosalie’s little sister arrives, we will need to move the cot into the nursery. The furniture in Rosalie’s bedroom, such as her wardrobe and chest of drawers, are what Rosalie had in her nursery. I have included rather a lot of photographs of her room but these are for our memories.
I plan to move that into the new nursery so Rosie is also in need of some new clothes storage. That Rosalie will still be able to use in years to come when her clothes are substantially bigger. I have added a list of stockists at the bottom of this post.
And while you're at it, rotate and flip your mattress to prevent uneven wear.
And by “this girls’ room” I mean my 5 year old daughter’s room, not mine (although I’ve really come to love pink and absolutely love that hanging chair). We turned what was once a terrifying, old, second kitchen into her nursery.
I will also be making a few updates to the décor in her room. Before I make these changes I wanted to record her room as it is now. If you want know where something is from that isn’t listed, leave me a comment below and I’ll get back to you.
Get the look: brass elephant (, amazon.com), brass giraffe (, amazon.com)BUY NOWRid the bedroom of anything that isn't conducive to relaxation or romance.I was going to switch out the basic silver for gold (duh) but let my daughter pick these big pink knobs instead. And at least this new gold planter (which she also picked and that I love very, very much) helps distract from the sea of pink.Overall I’m feeling pretty good about getting everything done – except those curtains.And there is even a sneaky little hideaway under her bed.When I can’t find her, I know that tucked in behind that dresser is where she’ll be. Last week I finished her desk area and asked you guys about the knobs.The simple addition of rickrack, ribbon or trim borders on bed skirts, pillowcases or shams can yield glowing results.The blue details on this bedding ties in colors from the headboard and creates a cohesive look.BUY NOWAdding a properly-sized area rug makes a room look bigger and more pulled together, even on top of carpeting.I never quite got around to hemming them or replacing the rods, so that’s still on the to do list.I may or may not ever get around to dealing with it.Because really, this chair/pouf situation trumps everything. Below are the sources, but I’m sure I’m forgetting some so ask if you want to know more.
