We all knew it would happen.
And I’ve been thinking about it for months.
Okay let’s not kid ourselves.
But who would have guessed that my dear husband would mention that I need to start designing Bella’s big girl room only seven days after her first birthday?
Just in case I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it again … he is my soul mate.
So tonight, my ideas and thoughts are coming to fruition.
I know a few things
Her room has to be as special as she is. It needs to compliment her personality and be fun and sweet as pie yet sassy.
Although there will be touches of pink, it will not be all pink. That is too expected.
We need storage!
The room will need to grow with her. My theory with nurseries & children’s rooms is to keep the basics neutral or easily revamped to fit a new style room (whether it be for a little brother or sister, guest bedroom, or Bella’s big girl room #2 … because if she’s anything like me, she will want to change the look of her room as often as she changes her clothes).
I want as much input from B as possible. Obviously with her nursery I (with Tyler’s blessings) selected the style, color & decor. But ever since she was born, we’ve read design magazines together and I’ve shown her photos and we discussed colors and styles. If she reacted with a smile or positive response I tore out the page and filed it away because she obviously loved it.
So if she can give feedback, I’ll take it and run.
This is going to be my main color palette.
As of today.
If I find another fabulous fabric, I can be persuaded.
I love the shape of this headboard. Love.
I found this photo & think a storage basket at the end of her bed is adorable. I would possibly add a cushion or pillows (if the basket is sturdy) and have it double as a bench.
I also like these two photos … nothing in particular, just think they’re both sweet.
