I am so excited to finally share Sophia’s big girl room with you today! When I say ‘big girl’ room I mean that weird period of time between baby nursery and kids room, in other words, the toddler phase. (If you are curious, here is what Sophia’s Nursery looked like in our old house). We stopped using the crib when Sophia was about two, and she started sleeping on the daybed, so it made sense for us to keep it for her new room. It is in great shape, we put a really great mattress on it, and the extra trundle bed is great to have in case we are called to her room in the middle of the night. I also pull out the trundle bed for a soft landing in case she rolls off the bed in the middle of the night.
I knew I wanted to use this cute Mitchell Black wallpaper, which is just so adorable and looks like a pineapple and a flower. Last time I collaborated with Mitchell Black was on my powder bathroom, and I was so happy with the results I couldn’t wait to work with them again. Almost all of their wallpaper is customizable, so you can change the size, and color, and really make your dream wallpaper come alive!
They also created a custom colorway on the paper I loved, in order for me to tie in the color palette of the room. I might not use the wallpaper in every corner since I was thinking of painting parts of the room. One of my friends suggested that I look for a local painter from My House Painter or another similar website. I’m thinking of doing it once these wallpapers start to wear off.
I absolutely love the details of this room, from the fluffy cloud-like light fixture to the vintage desk chair covered with scalamandre fabric. (Because every three-year-old needs a little bit of luxury in their life right? ha!) The decor could have been a lot better if we had put more time into it. I have seen people using Himalayan salt lamps (like the kind you can get at thelamplife) as an alternative to night lamps. It’s a wonderful idea actually, these lamps can work as a decor item as well as a relaxing night light. I might also consider getting one for our toddler. We spend so much time here, reading, playing tea parties, or just lounging around. It just really makes me so happy.
I am still thinking about painting the wood trim around the room. Fortunately, it’s in real good condition, and there’s definitely no sign of anything that might mean we would need to get someone like these Mold Remediation Services out – although it’s always reassuring to know that they are there! Tom jokes that I’m never actually done with a project and he isn’t wrong about that. Because I might feel like adding a division wall for Sophia’s study space or I might plan on painting the whole house blue! The latter is something I am now leaning towards doing for the entire house. But I don’t paint myself because I am a terrible painter, and due to the current crisis I don’t think I’ll be hiring anyone any time soon. So, for now, the trim stays!
