In the Big Kid Room with Happily Hughes

We have a double treat for you today. Not only are we revisiting a family we’ve featured before, we are also showcasing the design work of Meghan Basinger, a former Project Nursery team member (Hi, Meghan!). Jessica Hughes, a healthy living blogger at Happily Hughes and mama to Hudson and Henley, is sharing how she, with the help of Meghan, updated her daughter’s nursery to a big girl space. Peek at her nursery here and see what she kept and what she replaced. You’ll see that unicorns are still a big hit with little Henley. Thank you, Jessica, for inviting us into your space again!

What inspired your room design?
Henley’s always been my little unicorn—I never thought I’d have a girl. I talked to my friend Meg Basinger, who’s an amazing designer, and she helped me bring it all together!

What was your favorite part of the process?
The wallpaper! Once that was up, I had so much fun finishing the room.

Designing a big kid room is different than a nursery because you know your little resident’s personality better. Did your child have any special requests?
The star twinkle lights behind her bed. Hudson had them in his room, and Henley wanted some in hers too! We also had to have ALL THE DOLLS.

Any challenges you had to work around?
Finding a bed she would sleep in! For some reason she hated her crib, but she loves this twin bed!

Do you have any words of advice for other designers and parents?
Hire Meg and have fun!

    Could you please let me know how to get the wallpaper. I absolutely love it and can’t seem to find anything else that I like as much. Thanks so much. Your little girl’s room is adorable. It’s is giving me motivation to finally do ours (she just turned 1).
