A Few Finishing Touches in Our Master Bedroom


When we did the bedroom switcharoo for the girls and moved Lillie into her own room that meant this mirrored dresser had to get moved out of the guest room. We had been wanting to add a second dresser into our room since we moved in so we figured we would try it in here. I ended up moving it where we had the other dresser and moved that one onto the wall opposite our bed (you can see it further down in the post). 

Then, for my birthday last month, my parents got me this light fixture that I had been eyeing for quite a while from RH Baby and Child. I love the finishing touch it adds to the room. After that I ordered this faux cowhide from Joss and Main for our dining room but when it came I was still working on some painting projects in there so tried it up here. I actually ended up loving how it looked in here, which kind of surprised me. However, once I got the dining room finished up I moved it down there and now I really like how it looks in there too, so I am a little torn on which spot it will ultimately end up although I think probably the dining room. 







And one of our favorite pieces is this beautiful Angel by Deann. It was a limited edition and not available right now but you can check out all her other beautiful work!

Lillie's New Room




Well, here is Lillie's new room. There are still two things that aren't quite finished. We have a new sign that is going to go on the wall to the right of her desk and I'm on the hunt for a larger storage type bench for under her gallery wall but other than that her room is pretty much finished so I figured we would go ahead and share the pictures. As we mentioned in the preview post we shared last month, we mostly used furniture we already had in the two guest rooms but because they all had a more "grown-up" type feel to them, we tried to make it still feel child-like and whimsical with the addition of the wallpaper and some of the accessories. I think it is my new favorite wallpaper! It's from Wallpaper Direct and you can find it here. We just did one wall to start with, but Lillie and I both love it so much I think we will probably end up doing her whole room with it. In fact that's on our list of things to do this spring. We'll see if that actually happens or not, though. Ha!

I had been eyeing a small gold chandelier to add in here but then we took the chandelier down from the room she and Lola had been sharing because we put a basketball hoop in there now that it is just Lola's room. Seeing how there was no way a basketball and a chandelier would mix it made sense to move it in here. Plus this was the chandelier my parent's bought for Lillie's nursery when I was pregnant with her so it was sweet to be able to add it in here. We kept the basic white bedding and pom pom trimmed bedskirt from Country Curtains that was already on this bed but then added some beautiful shams and a gorgeous ruffled duvet from Land of Nod which was a nice way to add some of the pink that Lillie loves in here. We already had the black and white pillows that we bought at Target several years ago and the dresser and side table we've had for years as well. The white dresser is a little bit bigger and bulkier than I'd like to have over there but for now seeing how it's something we already had it works fine. In time I'd like to switch it out to something a little bit smaller. 





Over on this side of the room we added a fun gallery wall for Lillie full of some black and white posters with scenes from her beloved Sound of Music that we found online at the Movie Market. She's been obsessed with that movie since last summer and I can't tell you how many times she's watched it over and over and over... She and Lola even dressed up as Liesl for Halloween and my mom dressed up as Maria. Then we mixed in a "L" that we found at Michael's and she painted it glitter gold. And then we added a clipboard and hung one of our old prints, several of her favorite photos and a sweet little "Go Lillie" sign that her friend Amelia made and brought to one of Lillie's basketball games earlier this winter. I'd like to swap out the little trunk that's there now with something longer but that also has some storage space. That's where she currently keeps all of her stuffed animals. 

Lillie's favorite items in her new room are the two new pieces - her desk and chair. She's been asking for her own desk for what feels like forever - ha! We got the adorable bunny chair during a big sale right after Christmas at Pottery Barn TeenAnd the desk was a floor model piece on huge clearance from Pottery Barn Kids. It's funny, it's not at all what I had in mind when I was looking for a desk for this space but the second Lillie and I saw it we both knew it was going to be perfect for her room!  The heart marquee and little dog tape dispenser are both from Target, the gold L is from Michael's and the little bunny was a thrift shop find my mom found her. The "This Little Light of Mine Print" is from our shop. We made her little pinboard from a frame we had in the attic that I think I've had for probably ten years or so. I think it was originally something I found at a consignment shop and painted and then covered what was on there with some extra fabric. The corkboard we'd added at one point (that's underneath the fabric) was in pretty rough shape so at some point I need to fix it up a bit more but seeing how it's usually covered in all sorts of things she pins on there you can't really even see it - ha! The rest of the room is pretty true to how her room always looks but I did tidy up her pinboard both for the sake of photos and to remove quite a few of the items on her pinboard that were more personal like pictures of friends, class lists, homework stuff, etc. As soon as I finished taking these pictures I quickly pinned them all back. =) 

The chair was on clearance from a local outlet store a couple of years ago and was already in this room. I originally wasn't planning on keeping it in here because it felt a little too grown up, however it has turned into a nice little spot for Lillie to snuggle up and read in so I think we actually will leave it in there. We added this cute little pillow and pink tufted poof both from Land of Nod to help make it feel more fun. And she found this fuzzy cozy rug at HomeGoods and it worked out perfectly in there.

We stole the deer painting I did for Lola's room just for these photos. Later this week we plan on adding our brand new Dear Lillie sign to that spot on the wall. 











We found this cute little heart shaped pinboards at Target a couple of months ago and added them to the girls' doors and she and Lola love leaving little notes on them. She informed me she would like me to mention she can write much neater than this - she was just writing quickly. Haha! 

You can't see them in most of the other photos because I had them turned off but these fun little star lights we found from Restoration Hardware Teen add some nice lighting at night to read by. They look way more yellow in this photo than they really are. They are more of a white light. 

They are really thin so when they are turned off you cannot even tell they are there!



We found this cute little heart garland with lights at Target and the horse bookend is from HomeGoods. The frame was from Target years ago. The curtains were already in here so we just added some pom pom trim that we bought at Joann's to make it feel a little more fun. The dresser was already in this room on the opposite wall that I don't think we ever shared when it was a guest room. We got it from Joss and Main several years ago. We removed the handles and spray painted them gold to go with the other gold accents in the room. The lamp was from a thrift store years ago and we just swapped it out from the other guest room when we did the switch. 


We made this little  bunny pillow by copying one of the little characters from the wallpaper. I messed up when I was sewing the ears and they are way taller and skinnier than how I had originally sketched them out - whoops! Oh well.


The cute little lamp, notebook and and frame are all from HomeGoods and the gold vase was actually once a candle from Target. And then there's the current American Girl book she's reading. 


The mirror was from Pottery Barn almost ten years ago and the piggy bank was a gift from my sister, Dana, to Lillie when she was tiny. I think it was from Target. The little polka dot jewelry box is from Target and I love the trophy urn from the Arrow's Nest.

And I think that about covers it!

A Whimsical Woodland Little Girls' Room


We recently had the privilege of working on a new room for our sweet little friends Eleanor and Jane. About ten days ago we shared a little preview of this room with plans to share the full room just a few days later, but thanks to several rounds of ailments befalling both the little girls who this room belongs to as well as mine it took a little longer than planned - ha! But, it's finally finished and we are so happy to share the images with you all.

We shared the main details in the preview post - like the starting off point for this room which was the adorable Enchanted Wood wallpaper we got from Wallpaper Direct. My friend Katie (Eleanor and Jane's mom) and her mother hung the wallpaper and did a fabulous job. And before they hung the paper they painted the room a soft pale blue color called Whispering Spring. Once we chose the wallpaper we started looking for some antique style beds that would go well with the feel of the wallpaper and came across these beautiful ones from Joss and Main (they are currently sold out but still available on their sister site, Wayfair). We have been absolutely thrilled with not only how beautiful these beds look but with the quality of them and would order them again in a heartbeat. The beautiful white bedding and gold polka dot bedskirt are both from Beddy's and we love that not only are they adorable they are so incredibly functional as well. The ruffled pillows from HomeGoods and precious little stuffed lambs from Live Sweet Shop were the finishing touches to  the beds.

Once we had the main pieces figured out we started adding art and accessorizing. I saw this sweet little deer artwork from Minted on my friend Susan, from Kindred Vintage's instagram feed when she used it in her little girl's room and completely fell in love with it. It's called A Deer Friend by Andrew McClintock and we went with the 18 by 24 size and the Natural French Farmhouse frame. I think it added such a sweet touch to the wall next to the bed and I love how the deer continues the woodland theme from the wallpaper and how the wood frame goes so nicely with the nightstand we found at HomeGoods.



Here's a closeup of the artwork from Minted. 

To continue the woodland theme we added this grouping of four pieces of art to the wall at the end of the bed. I am so excited about this artwork. My sister Jamie wrote this beautiful poem/story that hopefully will end up as a children's book at some point but for now we thought it would be fun to sell as prints. It is so beautifully written and so sweet and whimsical and the perfect addition to a children's room or playroom. After Jamie wrote it, the extremely talented Lucy from Craftsberry Bush illustrated each print for us and perfectly brought the words to life. We are delighted to now be offering them for sale in our shop.


I love how this continues the whimsical woodland theme of the room. 


On this wall we used an IKEA dresser that Katie and Chris already had, a mirror and lamp that we already had, and that added a few cute little accessories from HomeGoods.



 I couldn't find anything that was quite right for above the beds so I ended up just using a simple burlap banner from Michael's that helped add a little of that warm brown color to the room and coordinated nicely with the nightstand and the frame on the deer print.

The cute little vase is actually part of a canister set from Birch Lane.
