The first rooms we plan on completing are the kid’s bedrooms once we move into our new house. We want the kid’s to love our new place and be excited for the move. Nola’s expressed numerous times already how she doesn’t want to move and she will miss the house we live in now (which is so sad and sweet at the same time). So we want to make her room lovely and really special for that girl. I have already consented to allowing her bedroom to be painted pink, but it will be the softest pink, similar to a blush/rose quartz color, which is one of the 2016 pantone colors mind you! And in all honesty I’m on board with and think it will be quite nice.
Something that’s important to me when decorating Nola’s bedroom is investing in items that can grow along with her as she gets older. Her room now consists of a hodge podge of items and I’m excited to try to finally pull everything together.
Here are a couple of rooms that are inspiring me in the blush color, much different in styles, but nonetheless I like them all :
And these are the items I’m eying to purchase for her bedroom along with a couple of items she has already.
The items we already have and plan on using again in Nola’s new room is the Oh Joy heart light, wall dollhouse my grandpa made me when I was little (the one in the photo is one I found on etsy which is very similar however mine is a wood finish which ironically is filled with animals as well), and the two drawer dresser (discontinued from Ikea). We need to get Nola a bed but I’m still very hesitant on getting a standard height one since she rolls around like crazy when she’s sleeping. Last year on vacation she fell out of bed twice and we felt horrible. But you can’t go wrong getting a Jenny Lind bed, I feel that style is timeless. I think a faux sheepskin rug and grey knitted pouf would make her room comfy and add some great texture. I am loving the idea of getting this San Francisco print from Rifle Paper since she always talks about CA and how she was born there (cute, right?). All the art I hang has some special meaning. Don’t you just love that wooden bead chandelier (sadly this is more than I want to spend, but hopefully I can still find something that’s somewhat dramatic like this one is). I am missing textiles like bedding and pillows which I most likely will use as an avenue to add some pop of color since everything is pretty calm and serene. Once her room is complete I will be sure to do a post showing what we ended up doing. I typically sit for awhile with rooms after we move, to just live and feel it out before making some purchases, and I know we won’t be able to buy everything right away, but like I mentioned earlier, the kid’s rooms are our top priority and can’t wait for them to be settled in.
