We're in the final few months before our daughter Emma enters the world, and with the number of fun kid spaces we've designed over the years, it was so much fun to dream up a room for my own little girl. I knew I wanted something girly, but that could grow with her, and ensure it included a touch of whimsy.
The wallpaper and paint combo was the perfect option to create a contrast with her white crib, while also bringing in a fun playful pattern without being overwhelming. The gallery wall above the crib (cemented to the wall with 3M tape so this first-time mom doesn't stay up at night) is filled with sentimental pieces we have collected. The centerpiece is by one of our good friend, Joshua Spieker, bottom left is a piece we purchased during our honeymoon in Italy and the top right is of two ducks I painted during my pregnancy.
We found this beautiful, solid wood, dresser on marketplace and really loved the size and variety of drawer heights to organize her things perfectly. My husband gave it a fresh coat of paint, and we replaced the knobs with bows for a sweet, girly touch. Her changing pad is one of the things I'm oddly most excited about, it's soft and cushiony for her, but very easy to wipe down. We added the simple light fixture with capiz for another little touch of gold. I always love the addition of a mirror over a changing space to make the space feel larger and let the baby see themselves of course!
We of course cannot wait to read and snuggle with her, so we included a few book ledges to hold all of our favorites - Stellaluna was on repeat when I was a kid and my mom still reads it to her class every year!
Now that her room is perfect and all ready for her arrival, we are busy getting everything else wrapped up while we count down until August.
