Big Girl Not Just Pink Bedroom Retreat…..


Gracie's big girl room. I wanted something bright and unique and not your ordinary, standard "pink" room. Gracie did request her big girl room to be pink so I decided to accent it with hot pink decor. I refused to paint the walls pink so I opted for a light and airy blue gray color that set the pefect tone for all the pink accents. And the color is easy to decorate around in the future without having to repaint the walls. Since Gracie already has her very own playroom space in the basement I wanted her bedroom to be a place she could go to relax, read, do legos, or watch a movie.

Design Inspiration

My design inspiration came from two pieces of fabric by Amy Butler that I adored. The Kumari Garden and the Buttercups designs which I had custome made into a quilt and throw pillows. My true inspiration to create this "big girl bedroom retreat" came from Pintrest.

Decorating Style

I would descibe my decorating style as a cross between traditional and eclectic with my own little twist!

Project Details

The wall color is Benjamin Moore - Gray Cloud 2126-60. The dresser is the KOPPANG chest from IKEA with Butterfly nobs from Pottery Barn. The desk is from Target. The book shelves are the RIBBA pictures ledges from IKEA. The polka dot lounge chair is from Pottery Barn Teen. The hot pink polkadot foot bench is from Home Goods. The desk chair is from Amazon. The mirror over the desk in the UNG DRILL mirror from IKEA (I spray painted it using Rust-oleum Univeral Spray Paint in Pure Gold.) Kumari Garden throw pillow covers were from Joya on Etsy. The sheets, white ruffle duvet cover & bed skirt are from Pottery Barn Teen. The toddler comforter quilt was custume made by PLJ Design from Etsy. The 12"x24" lumbar pillow cover is from Persnickety on Esty All items in the wall gallery I made myself except the letter G which is from Ballard Designs and the LOVE print was by The Whealfield shop on Etsy. The small oval frame and small mirror frames are from IKEA. I hand painted the mirrior frames. The chandelier is the Mia Chandelier from Pottery Barn kids. Picture frames on dresser are all great finds from Home Goods. The chalkboard frame on the desk was made by myself.

Favorite Items

My favortie items in the room are the throw pillows and the Chandelier.


My advice for PN readers is to pick on item, fabric or piece of furniture you (or your child) adores an build your design around those pieces. Create an insipration board on Pintrest that way you have all your ideas in one place and move forward from there. Lastly. Listen to your gut feeling. Seeing tons of different rooms and finding all kinds of ideas can be a daunting process and one thing in one room may not look or feel the same in the space you are trying to create. Do what feels right and you are on the right track! Be your own designer and do what works for you!
