The time has come to finally decorate a little girls room. I say finally because when our daughter was born (our 2nd), I never got to decorate a nursery for a little girl. I did for our son (our first child), but when baby girl came, we had other people temporarily living with us, so for the first few years our kids shared a room. And honestly they loved it. I showed you their shared space here.
It wasn’t until my son turned 5 that he started wanting his “own” boy space. Timing was perfect because it was just around then that our house guest left, and each kid got their own room. My daughter stayed in their current room, and we moved my son into the next bedroom.
We painted his room the same gray (Jogging Path by: Sherwin Williams) color I had in their shared room, which is what my daughter has still had up until now. My whole master plan with painting all the bedrooms gray, was so I would essentially never have to paint them again, because it is such a great neutral shade. Then I started getting requests for a pink room, and how come her room couldn’t have pink walls? I had added a few pink touches when her brother moved to his own room, but I still wasn’t done. Apparently it wasn’t pink enough soon enough. She has witnessed me paint quite a few times, so in her logic, there was no reason she couldn’t have pink walls. Despite the fact that I like the house being neutral I decided to grant her, her wish. It is only paint after all. So I seized the opportunity, per her request, to finally decorate a pink room, a bit more grown up than a nursery would be, but pink non-the-less. So today I’m sharing with you some inspiration:
Her walls will be painted Opal by: Benjamin Moore. It’s the fairest shade of peachy-pink. It feels more like an off white, with pink undertones. Fingers crossed it’s “pink” enough. I decided to go with a peachy-pink, instead of a more powdery pink, because I wanted it to have a bit of a vintage flair. I want the pink to be an understatement, not an in your face – “wow this must be a little girls room”, pink color. The creme de la creme is this gorgeous duvet cover from Land of Nod. It’s so frilly and dainty, a perfect pink statement. I plan on making a DIY ribbon mobile, like the one you see in the mood board along with some DIY tissue paper pom pom’s. The beautiful blush & gold print is from Chalk Full of Love, and the distressed angel wings are from non other than my favorite little shop – Painted Fox. Her current set up hasn’t changed much from how you saw it the last time in their shared room.
I plan on moving the furniture to a different layout in the space. Re-working the gallery wall, and implementing a cozy reading nook into her space. I want the room to feel girly, yet a little sophisticated. Cozy and full of charm with some vintage flair. I’ll be sure to share more details along the way, and of course you can always catch sneak peaks on Instagram (roomsforrent).
