Hey Guys! I’m so excited to show you our first official room tour of our house – our daughters room. When we moved cross country, my hubby and I told her she could help us decorate the room by picking what color she wanted the walls to be. And like any typical 5 year old, she picked purple! So I will warn you, her room is a bit of a pink and purple explosion. At the bottom of the post, Ill give some sources for the girls room decor in this room.
She loves her room and we love it and it’s really just a bright and happy space for her to be in. So come on in!
She has these beautiful french doors in her bedroom. Lucky! When we first moved in, they were wood toned but we painted them white to better fit with the house.
I actually found the blackout drapes before we painted, I took a risk by going tone on tone but it ended up working out! Phew!
I sewed an additional blackout liner in white to the back of the curtains. The light just pours in that room and it can get super hot in there. The liner helps control the temperature and light. When you live where we do, it doesn’t get dark until late in the summer so having the light blocked in there was essential. Plus, I didn’t want you to see purple drapes from the street! 🙂
I kept the bedding as neutral as possible. I didn’t want to spend a fortune and I found this cute set on overstock. It has just the right amount of purple in it. By the way, that purple throw up there is a mermaid tail blanket – so cute!
She is very much into dance and we reflected that in these cute prints from Etsy. The colors are perfect!
I wanted some of her decor to be items she made and uses regularly, like books and art. She made the little flower crown on her headboard.
Her white Hemnes dresser from Ikea has served us well. It used to be mine way back when! We had this in her nursery and now her bedroom and I can’t imagine ever getting rid of it.
I do want to change the knobs out for something a little more girly eventually.
Her dresser decor is simple – alphabet art, a piggy bank and the additional books. Oh yea, and a lamp.
Hint : if you have a cute series of books, like Dr. Suess or the Little Golden Books, they make great kids room decor!
Since her room is small and she has a big bed, I didn’t want to crowd it with tons of furniture. So instead of a bookcase, she has a white basket that holds her books. The rest sit on her dresser. Luckily she has a big closet to store toys and anything else.
My kids love those adorable anywhere chairs! They are easy to move around and are perfect to sit in and read a book. I’ve even caught my 21 month old sitting in them with a book. (Heart melting.) ❤️
Here’s a closer look at the rug. It’s reversible! The back side is more white with pink outline. Sorry, as I’m typing this I realized I forgot to snap a picture of that. I tried both sides when we were decorating the room but in the end, the white side looked a little more busy. So pink side it is.
This piece of art was a HomeGoods find. I love the song and it pops against the purple wall.
I also used these cute gold dot wall decals to spice up the corner wall a bit. It ties in with some of the other gold accents in the room, like the lamp there on the chair.
The weathered chair was my late grandfather’s. I want to paint it but I’m stuck on a color. Part of me wants to go white, part of me wants to go pale pink and part of me wants something unexpected, like aqua. And part of me wants to keep it as is – in all its rustic glory. What do you guys think would look good?
Here’s a closeup of that chair. As you can see, it’s pretty antique. But I like that.
I made the pink pompom pillow and the little wonder pillow is a Pottery Barn clearance find. Of course, she sleeps with Bunny every night so she gets a special spot on the bed.
Here’s looking out into the hall. One of the reasons I love our little craftsman so much is the detail and character this home came with – like that built in linen cabinet in the hall there. It’s really a handy storage cabinet to have!
Well, I’m sad to say but that about concludes the tour for for her room. I hope you guys enjoyed it!
I tend to think less is more when it comes to decor. With the exception of terra cotta pots and pillows. 😉
Books, Baskets and Kids artwork can all be a great and inexpensive source to give the room some style. Plus, it’s less to clean and just easier to keep clean. I know, I’m always thinking about cleaning. Alrighty – Sources are below. Have a great rest of the day!
