A New Big Girl’s Room

I’m featuring another room in my best friend, J’s, house today.  With the addition of a third child looming in the near future, it was time for her to play musical rooms again and move her youngest out of the nursery into the “big girl room” and her oldest out of her “big girl room” into her “really big girl room.”  I wanted to share this room since I think it turned out so beautifully.  At the age of 5, her daughter, little MHB, had plenty of input on the color and style of the room, which her mom turned into a tasteful, chic room that can grow with her all the way to high school.


She mixed and matched the linens on the bed with sheets from Target, a quilt from Home Goods, and professionally made throw pillows, bedskirt, and curtains.


Most of the accessories were found at local boutiques and TJ Maxx.  The bookcase is a refinished antique piece that I think really adds some class to the room and is a great storage piece.


Fun fabric and trim on the window and bed keeps the room lighthearted and whimsical.  That is a hot pink leopard print peeking from underneath the curtain and used elsewhere throughout the room:


This window seat will be the perfect reading nook as she grows older, again featuring the leopard print.  J is planning on making one of the DIY book slings to hang on one of these walls:


This little green chair from TJ Maxx was the perfect addition.  I love the nail head trim and funky shape:


She used some left over leopard fabric to create a memo board by covering a piece of cork and inserting it into a large painted frame:


All those special touches make the room so fun and unique.  Her daughter just loves it and I can see her enjoying it for years to come!  If you noticed the artwork hanging over the bed, I’m going to feature more about it in an upcoming post.
