In the Toddler Room with Hello, Baby Brown

We are touring the most darling floral toddler room belonging to little Phayre, daughter of Marisa Brown. You may know Marisa from the lifestyle blog Hello, Baby Brown. There you can find her sharing about her marriage, motherhood and her home in Portland, Oregon with two girls and soon a baby boy! So let’s take look, shall we?

What inspired your room design?
When we moved Phayre from her nursery to her big girl room, I wanted to keep the same floral and girly vibe. I love mixing different patterns and textures, which I did a lot of in her space. My main goal was to create a space that would be appropriate for her now (at almost two years old), but would also be a room that she can grow into.

What was your favorite part of the process?
My favorite part of the process was seeing everything finally come together! I ordered each piece of furniture and decor from different places, so it was so exciting to put everything together. I absolutely love how the rose gold bed looks on the floral wall; those are probably my favorites parts of her room.

Designing a toddler room is different than a nursery because you know your little resident’s personality better. Anything special you included this time around? Or did your toddler have any special requests?
Phayre absolutely loves stuffed animals, baby dolls and books, so I tried to make these easily accessible to her. Her favorite books are displayed under the window, and she has another basket of books in her nightstand. I included a few baskets where she keeps her stuffed animals and baby dolls. She loves playing in her room so much, which makes me so happy!

What are some of your favorite elements of the room?
I absolutely love all of the handmade items in P’s room! They are the items I know we’ll keep and treasure forever.  I especially love the felt flower “P” above her bed and the handpainted globe on her dresser.

Do you have any words of advice for other designers and parents?
I’ve learned that it’s important to create a space where your children are comfortable, while making sure it’s also a space that they can grow into. Kids just grow up so fast! I love using more sophisticated furniture and textiles and mixing in cutesy and fun decorations.
