When we moved into our house my daughter was right on the cusp of moving into her big girl bed. So instead of just redoing her nursery I wanted to give her a room she could grow into for a some years.

Design Inspiration

I started with the most adorable pillow cases from kuku nest.  I knew I wanted to use them as my inspiration.  From there is was all about colors.

Decorating Style

I would have to say fun, whimsical, girlie, and unique.

Project Details

Her bed was from Pottery Barn Kids.  I love that it was a trundle and that I was able to buy their guard rail to use.  Her dresser is Ikea.  We filled her shelves with mementos from trips and other nik naks.  I had my muralist come over and do her magic on the walls.  I loved how she made the lanterns look like they were blowing in the breeze.  I also wanted to have a cherry tree in her room.  

Favorite Items

I think I would have to say her bed.  Only because I love climbing in it with her at bed time for story time and songs.  Memories I hope she will cherish.


DO not be afraid of color.  Mix and match, do not just bag a bed in a bag with the matching decals and wall hangings.  Give the room character.

    I like your concept for this room, even if it didn’t turn out to be japanese-y enough.  Great work on putting it all together!

    You know what I think? This room is splendid! But may I suggest something? Add some kokeshi dolls! It would really make this room standout and won’t be out of place!
