Progress in Lillie's New Room


We aren't finished yet, but we've made enough progress in Lillie's room that we figured we would share what we've done in there so far! This was one of the rooms that was a nice blank canvas - beige walls, beige carpet and creamy trim. As I mentioned yesterday, the couple who bought our last home bought some of our furniture as well, including Lillie's bed, so one of the first things we did even before we moved in was look for a new bed for her.

She fell in love with this one from our sponsor, Birch Lane and I loved it too so that made the decision nice and easy! I love that it is such a classic design and the neutral color will allow it to go with a variety of design and colors as she grows!

The next thing we decided on was the wallpaper. I picked out a whole bunch for her and Lola to look through and they decided which one they liked best for each of their rooms. Lillie first chose a floral pattern but changed her mind to this soft pink buffalo check from Spoonflower. Ironically Lola chose a buffalo check as well, although I different size and color- ha! I love buffalo check but have to admit I wasn't planning on it going in both of their rooms. However, I have to say they each fit their personalities perfectly and we love how this beautiful paper looks. I also love when you order on Spoonflower you can custom choose the length of your pieces! They have sooooooo many options to choose from and you can also custom design your own wallpaper!


Another fun thing we added to her room was this hanging chair. She had seen one this summer and loved it so we got her one for her birthday. They were having a Black Friday sale so it was perfect timing. There's a weird mix of chain in these photos, sorry! I took these right before we left for our Christmas vacation, but since we have gotten back I have fixed it so it's just one more simple looking chain. The cozy rug is from HomeGoods - we got it for her last room and transitioned in here (although it may ultimately end up in Lola's room). 



And then the other new item we added was this mini tufted sofa from hayneedle. It is so ridiculously cute!!!! I love the tufting details and the quality of it! We were originally going to put it in the playroom but it worked so perfectly in her bedroom I think we are going to keep it in here! 

Pretty much everything else moved over from our last house, like her desk and bunny ears desk chair. And this deer painting was in Lola's room before but seeing how her new room has "no pink!" we decided it would look cute in here. I think proportionally speaking it needs a frame if we are going to keep it here or we may move it to another spot but for now it's fine like this.

I think by now you all know how much we LOVE Beddy's bedding. We have used their bedding in our friend's little girls' room, in Lillie's last room, in Lola's last room (and her new room, but we haven't finished that yet), and Jamie used this same Goldie Dot design in Everly's room! We would not be using it over and over if we did not absolutely positively LOVE it! I seriously can't say enough good things about it! It is the most amazing bedding for kids (and honestly, not just kids!) because it keeps them all snuggled in at night and it is SO EASY for them to make their beds the next morning - they literally just zip it up! My girls' can make their beds in about thirty seconds!

The nightstands were the ones we used in our master bedroom at our last house. They were the perfect size for what I was looking for in her room so I just painted them with some extra Simple White paint that I had leftover from painting some of the trim downstairs. They are just a simple Ikea hack - you can read more about them in this post here.


We've done a lot of musical lamps since moving in and trying to decide which lamps work best in each new room. Although I liked these ones from HomeGoods in here I think they worked best in our bedroom so they ended up back in there and I want to find something more whimsical for in her room.


Ignore the curtain rods. They are going to be replaced - probably with white ones and these ones are going to go downstairs but when I went to hang her draperies these were the only ones I had on hand, and now that they are up I keep forgetting about it until I look at pictures - ha! The unicorn head and pom pom wreath moved from the door in her last room to center position for now in her new room!


I am planning on hanging the sign but I just wanted to make sure I was positive on where I was going to hang it before I did so I didn't put too many holes in the new wallpaper right away - ha! I am sure over time I will end up putting lots and lots of holes in these walls but to start with I am taking it slow with hanging things in most of the rooms. Although I've thought about hanging it over her desk, I think we are probably going to end up putting it over the tufted sofa.
















And here are some wide angle shots - sorry for all the lens warping! 

Here is what the room looked like a couple of days after we moved in before we started doing any decorating. As you can see, it was a nice blank slate. Nothing to undo, just a little boring.

  1. Jenni, I have a source for a 1" metal hardware line that comes in a brushed brass finish. It would look fabulous in her room. I would love to share the source with you.

  2. I have to ask because I am so confused. I thought I was up to date. You didn't move again did you? I thought Lillies room had the black iron bed and the bunny wall paper in the new house. Anyway the her room is lovely and I really like the wallpaper.

    1. Hi, Angela! Jenni and her family moved back in November after 3 1/2 years at their previous home. You can see some of the new spaces she has shared (including the new entryway, master bedroom, and living room) in previous posts, and there will be more to come as they get settle in!

  4. That couch in her room is so darling. As is the hanging chair. What a stylish and fun room to grow up in! I'm also glad you said that about the curtain rod. When I first saw it I was surprised you didn't go lighter. I think a lighter rod will look great (though it looks fine the way it is, too!).

  5. What a beautiful room. I love the heart garland over the deer painting, how long ago did you buy that? I see it was at Target, but can't find it.

    1. Thank you! She keeps a lot of her everyday stuff in the lower drawers of the nightstands and then has a dress in her closet.

  8. Hi! I am in love with this wallpaper! Thank you for sharing! Do you hang your own wallpaper? If so, can someone who has never done it do it easily? I have looked for someone to hire, but with no luck. Thanks for your help!

    1. Thanks, Jolene! Jenni has hung lots of wallpaper in the past, but it is probably her least favorite job, so she tends to hire someone to do it. Its generally pretty inexpensive (usually $20-25 a roll in her area), so definitely worth it to have it done in an hour or two by someone who knows what they're doing over her spending an entire day on it. Honestly it can be pretty stressful to line everything up perfectly if you are not a professional. Your local paint store may have some suggestions for who you can hire to hang wallpaper in your area!

      Hope this helps!

    1. Thank you! The carpet was already there when they moved in, so unfortunately Jenni doesn't have any source information on it (it's Berber).

  11. I bought a hanging chair after seeing it in Lillie's room. Was it hard to hang it from the ceiling? They recommend a stand for it but I really wanted it to hang from the ceiling.

    1. Hi, Angela! It only took Jenni about 5 minutes to hang. That being said though, we definitely recommend seeking professional advice before attempting and making sure you hang the hook in a stud.
