Good day crumpets!
I would like to start this out by saying that I am emphatically against “room tours” in the typical sense of the word. You know the ones. Those we see on YouTube or Instagram, flexing $2,000 Restoration Hardware cribs and linens worth more than a car payment that are NOT real life. They are meant to make us normal people feel bad. So bad, in fact, that I can no longer go inside Pottery Barn Kids without breaking a sweat and feeling guilty that I cannot provide this picture perfectness for my kid.
Is this just me?
When our 3rd bedroom was finished (it was a loft space prior), I started having minor palpitations about how I would decorate it. What “theme” should I pick? Should I stick with my go-to Shabby Chic taste? Or should I aim for one of those cool, Instagram, minimalist, gender neutral style spaces?
How much money did I really want to spend on this room?
The answer: NOT MUCH.
I decided to let things happen naturally. Paint the walls a color that will stand the test of time. Fill this room with things we love, that evoke nostalgia and that make us think, “Clara will love this”. So here we are…here’s her room.
Crib from a friend! Woohoo!
All the bedding as well as the mobile is from Target’s Shabby Chic line. The patterns are TO DIE. Apologies for the super wrinkly crib skirt. The blanket draped over the crib was a gift that my friend’s mom made. The big flowers are from Hobby Lobby. They were inspired by the $50 versions I saw and died over at Pottery Barn Kids:
This ballerina fitted crib sheet is also Shabby Chic from Target!
Can you handle theeee cuteness of these little stuffies?
This changing table is Ikea, but we got it from Offer Up for $70.
All her little shoes make me so happy. Especially the Toki Doki Donutella moccasins!
How sweet is this little music box? It was a gift from David’s aunt Sandi who got it in Vietnam.
This is a bouncy chair from Ikea and it is super comfy. The little Clara chair is actually from Pottery Barn Kids and was a gift from my amazing work.
The swan bust is amazing! It is from Target and I love it.
This is a Madame Alexander doll. I also have a set of Little Women dolls from Madame Alexander which I want to get up on a shelf.
Mostly all the stuffies in her room were gifts. The Jellycat ones are SO soft and wonderful.
The other little cove of the room has a couch and TV. So far it has been awesome to have in there and E loves hanging in here to watch her shows. Also LOVE the Pusheen pillow :).
UPDATE: My mom sewed blackout curtains on the back of these Parisian panels David’s mom got us that we have had for awhile. The work perfectly in this room!
And that’s it! She is not sleeping in here quite yet but we are all ready to go. I have loved decorating this little space for her!
