The project I was/am most excited about is my 9-year-old daughter's bedroom. Literally, 2 hours after we closed, the room was transformed from builder beige to Sherwin Williams Cooled Blue!
Lots of times it is difficult to know exactly how you want to lay out a room BEFORE you actually move in the space. Not this one. I'm a die-hard Pottery Barn bedding fan and have been addicted to their children's furniture since this lil' girl was the size of a peanut! I knew exactly what I wanted and how I could use her existing furniture and layer in some new stuff for a totally tween room.
Before we moved, I was busy ordering bedding and sending Jacki off to Ikea for this awesome light fixture that we used in Ruby's playroom. It was too adorable not to imitate.

I started with the Pottery Barn Teen Crinkle Puff Quilt and two euro shams.
Next, I added the PBTeen Swirly Paisley Duvet Cover with two standard shams. (I already had the down insert from her last set of bed linens.)

Her bookcase is mainly about practicality since she's an avid reader. But I couldn't resist this adorable "S" representing her first name on a turbo shop through Homegoods. My 5-year old was with me and was dying to have an initial of his own. Since we couldn't find a B (the first letter of his name), he said he was willing to settle for an E (the 2nd letter of his name). Bless his little learning-to-spell heart!
Long story short, we took the rockers off and added turned legs since we aren't rocking any more babies around here. I just love it with its new slipcover!

We still need some art work on the walls and her desk will go next to the dream rocker opposite the bed but I just couldn't wait to share with our adorable followers. If you want us to whip up a room for your tween, just give us a call!
