It’s been a while since I’ve done a room tour and I think you all are well over due for one. Since we sold our house, we temporarily have down sized into a “luxury” apartment closer to my full time job and the kid’s schools. While the temporary part makes decorating and organizing a little challenging because we aren’t making any drastic changes and aren’t changing anything about the base of the rooms including the paint colors. What we have done is just make it feel more like home and tried to keep the spaces as functionally organized as possible.
(At the end of this girly room tour, you’ll find a list of older posts that go with this one!)
One of the first rooms we always get done is Bailey’s girly room. This has always helped (at least in my head) with her adjusting to moving because in her little 6 years we have moved from an apartment to a rent house then another rent house for just a few months then PCS’d to another rent house in Houston then bought a house then sold the house and to an apartment…or in a shorter way of putting that, she has lived in 6 different places. When we moved into this apartment, one thing I wanted to make sure we did for her room was make it feel a little more grown up but still very girly with all of the aspects that a big 6 year old needs. A lot of the design for her girly room stemmed from the bedding she was gifted from my Meme. It’s a large feminine floral print from Ralph Lauren that pairs beautifully with some of the other design details in her room.
Her bed is a custom build from my awesome dad that was designed from a Pottery Barn daybed. Like I mentioned earlier, the bedding (comforter, shams, pillowcases, and small pillow) are Ralph Lauren and a gift from my Meme although I think she got them years ago at Marshall’s.
Beside her bed is a simple white bookshelf I got a few years ago from a discount furniture store and it houses her stereo and lamp, some of her favorite treasures and her flower girl basket from her godparent’s wedding, and her now slimmed down library. Originally the bottom two shelves were shoved full of books but we have moved the preschool books to her brother’s room and then donated the ones she wasn’t interested in.
On the opposite end of her bed is a hot pink chest that I found at Ross which holds all of her “friends”.
Beside that is a large mirror that used to live in our guest bedroom with a ballet barre in front of it. We used multiple different DIY ideas but eventually settled on using two closet rod holders with a 2.5″ dowel that was precut to 36″. I will not say this was the easiest DIY, but it wasn’t the most difficult either.
On the next wall we put the desk from our old office in front of the 2 large windows in her room. Giving her a desk gave her a place to do her arts and crafts and a place to put it all so little brother couldn’t get to it.
On top of her desk she has the navy and white caddy that holds all of her markers and map pencils…
As well as a lamp that has been in almost every room of our house (and was originally a brassy gold) with a picture of Adam and I from our wedding and a set of nesting dolls we found from a German lady at a craft fair.
Beside the desk is a 2×3 cube shelf from Target that holds some toys and her ballet gear. The cube boxes are also from Target. I would like to eventually get rid of the cube shelves but for now they are an easy transition to use in different rooms and a way for the kids to quickly stow away their many toys.
On the closet wall is another custom build by my dad which originally housed her dress up clothes. When we downsized, we also got rid of a ton of toys and the dress up clothes were part of what she decided to part with. So now this cabinet holds her TV in the middle, clothes that don’t get hung like pants and pajamas in the cubes on the bottom and then some of her keepsake items on top.
Behind her door, we hung her outfit of the day sign which you can still get the free printable and info here and her fairy door she got for Christmas.
This fairy door is seriously the sweetest thing!
