This is my youngest daughter's bedroom.  I have painted, embellished, and repurposed almost everything in it.  My mom handmade the beautiful pillows.  I decided to separate my girls so they could each have their own space.  I wanted to create a space that my daughter would not outgrow for a long time.  As she gets older, her bed will convert and the baby touches can be removed.  It's a room that she can grow with.

Design Inspiration

I wanted the space to feel like a cozy, vintage child's room in an English cottage.

Decorating Style

Vintage inspired, shabby chic.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the rocking horse I found at an antique store for $10!  I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in "grain sack".  I removed the old mane and tail and replaced it with lace strips I cut and various ribbon.  I replaced the eyes with pretty buttons I found.


Attention to detail is important!  If you want to achieve a vintage inspired look, really pay attention when selecting accessories, photos, etc. and make sure they look appropriate to the era you are trying to recreate.
