Dusty Blush Big Girl Room


My daughter's room was a labor of love. It all started with the rug, which was in her nursery. I loved the soft tones and the subtle pop of green, which I wouldn't normally opt-for, but it works really well with all the muted tones and keeps it from looking too babyish. The rug's color palette is what ultimately inspired the floral wallpaper; the colors are bold, but they play off the colors in the rug beautifully. Other than the crib, the gold bookcase was pretty much the only other item I had for her nursery. I then added the wood beaded chandelier when we moved into this house and that's how her room stayed for a while.

When I started to look at "big girl beds," I fell in love with this dusty blush bed. I had debated between a "safer" choice with a white bed, but I'm so happy I ultimately went with this one. It's a mature shade of pink that can carry her well into her teenage years.

After I decided on the bed, I came across this gorgeous canopy  in champagne and knew I wanted it for her corner to create a dreamy reading nook. It is such a beautiful, high-quality piece, and my daughter's mouth dropped when she saw it go up; definitely a little girl's dream.

I then purchased this simple white nightstand and swapped out the knobs with a set from Hobby Lobby and the room was complete. I'm so happy with how this labor of love turned out, and seeing her reaction to it all was truly priceless. Just remember that oftentimes, these projects do take some time, and you should embrace that because in the end you'll have a room that you truly love.
