There is just something about a girl’s room. I had so much fun decorating and organizing Dylan’s Nautical Nursery, but decorating with the color pink hasn’t really been an option since my college days, so even the thought of wall to wall blush and bashful (name the movie!?) was enough to get me giddy.
I did have to fight the urge to paint though. Just a few years ago, I painted this once guest room Stonington Grey and have always loved how soothing it is. And that’s really what I’m after… a soothing, cozy little room where I can someday soon convince her sweet little self to snooze for 11 hours straight. Dylan has hooked a mama up with his sleeping skills, so here’s to hoping we get as lucky.
OK… back to the room. Well without further ado, here she is! I’ll take you on a little tour around the room:
Although I’m so very happy with how it all came together, I’m just giddy over her curtains. They are far far far from perfect… but they are just what I wanted for this room. After hours of hunting for the perfect pink panels, I decided to just DIY them using my trusty panel tutorial and this beautiful fabric from fabric.com.
I had my heart set on this Pali crib and dresser set, but Jer convinced me the price tag was just too steep and found this Bonavita set instead. I got both pieces from Amazon and 2 days later (woot, woot, proud Prime member in the house) the dresser came fully assembled and the crib in many different parts that Jer tackled like a champ.
Man I wish I could take credit for these amazing canvases on and above Emma’s bookshelf… but I can’t. They were a gift from one of my bestest friends, Katie! Thanks boo, you are so very talented and I absolutely adore them!
Oh and also on her bookshelf… did anyone grow up collecting these birthday dolls like my sister and I did? I completely forgot about these until my sister recently gave me this one for Emma at my shower. So excited to watch Emma collect these!
So for the glider, I fully intended on snatching the one we got for Dylan two years ago – it’s so comfortable and he and I have spent so many nights just a snoozin’ in it. But… I just couldn’t. He still loves it and even though it’s getting fewer and fewer rocks from us these days, we still read a few books in it every night… and well… it’s his. I’m about to rock his word with a new addition to our family, so decided it was best to just keep things as normal as I possibly can for him.
To solve the problem, I found this glider at Target and have already put some miles on it. Might just be bloggin’ away in it right now
Last but not least is the changing table/dresser. You know I’ve got some organization posts in the works to show you inside…
Same for the closet…
And that’s a wrap y’all! 7 more weeks and we get to bring a sweet little baby girl home to this room. I seriously can’t wait… and that’s just not the heartburn or kankles talking. God has blessed me with the most amazing little boy and I’m just so unbelievably excited that He is blessing us again.. and this time with a little girl. ekkkk!
