It is so encouraging for me when I see a space coming together how I envisioned it! I wanted a room for Elle that had plenty of pink in it (she never fails to remind us on a daily basis that pink is her favorite color) but had the main pieces white to balance a very girly room. I know how fickle people can be with their color choices and decorating decisions (ahem, me) and I figure that in two years blue or yellow may be her favorite color.
The photo above shows the two new pieces in her room. Can you tell what they are?
I added in some gorgeous linen curtains I found at Marshalls. After oodles of research for white linen curtains, that I really liked, I kept coming up with ones that were going to cost me around $100+. I found these curtains for $25 a set so at $75 for the whole room it wasn’t a steal but it was the best price I found (always make sure to check Home Goods too… they have a dynamite selection of curtains!).
Her room is nearly complete, I just want to paint the walls white or the lightest pink you can imagine (they are off white now to match the trim) and add something above her bed. I adore these flowers from Pottery Barn Kids and these from Etsy. I initially thought about DIYing it and scratched that idea when I found out that it’s really affordable to buy them… and have them look a lot better than I could make them. Know your strengths, right? 🙂
Here’s the girl… this was taken the other day after we went to Trader Joe’s to buy the tulips and TJ Maxx (where I found a gorgeous kelly green Ralph Lauren bag I loved!). She wore her princess dress everywhere… do you want strangers to constantly smile at you? Just walk around with an almost three year old in a princess dress.
