We couldn’t wait to design our daughter’s first bedroom. She has been sharing her space with her older brother since she was born, and while she’s been incredibly resourceful in decorating her bed and personal space as girly as she’d like, she is ready for her own room.
Zoe is very girly, so putting together ideas for her bedroom was not only fun, but it was fairly easy. She loves pink and ballet, dolls and stuffed animals—so much so that there was very little space for her to sleep in her bunk bed. Having her own room has opened up so much potential for filling the space with things that inspire and delight her.
My mom and I took Zoe to the Pottery Barn Kids store in Palo Alto for the ultimate girls adventure. She was able to handpick what she wanted for her bedroom. Though she was a bit overwhelmed, her choices of furniture and bedding were exactly what I would have chosen for her.
Between myself, my mom and the design specialist at Pottery Barn Kids, we were able to design her bedroom from the ground up. It’s perfect and practical, yet full of whimsy and pretty details that my inner (3)5-year-old is completely gaga over. There isn’t too much pink, and the furniture will all grow with her nicely. Quite frankly, I may be caught bunking in there with her from time to time—it’s that special.
The design team at Pottery Barn Kids was knowledgeable and helpful and made the choosing and ordering process a breeze. We can’t wait to finally reveal Zoe’s very own room to her and watch as it complements her independence and creativity, as well as her very own space as the only girl amongst her brothers.
Here is a before picture of the room when my youngest, Beau, was still using it. Stay tuned for the full reveal of the space remade for Zoe!
