I’ve been feeling all the feels lately as we took down the crib for the final time.
No more babies.
Thought I’d share some pictures of the super cute big girl room I’ve put together for Brynley.
The previous owners used this room as an office/sitting room. During the remodel phase, this room got all new floors, new window, new wall treatments, popcorn ceilings removed, and new window trim.
I can walk you through her new space as it looks today.
In terms of the basics, 8″ baseboards (the chunkier, the better in my opinion), LVP flooring (more on that here), wired for a chandelier overhead because apparently no one in the ’70s needed overhead lighting in their rooms, and then added planks of stripped undermount plywood onto the walls throughout her room to function aesthetically as shiplap.
This girl gets some of the best natural light in all of the house, and I love it.
I also love all of the neutral I picked out for her, with minuscule touches of pink.
Honestly, this is probably the last time that I get to have much say in how her room looks decor wise, because she has very articulately and directly informed me that WHITE is not her favorite color.
Lord help me, this girl has so much sass and such big opinions for being such a little thing.
Can’t imagine where she got that from? 🙂 #hermama
My goal is always to have each space reflect it’s inhabitants. Which for me, that is what we’ve accomplished here.
It’s a little bit whimsical, a little bit girly, touches of boho, a little bit eclectic, but ultimately classic. None of it matches, yet it all goes together. That is Brynley for us. She’s a little bit of me, a little bit of her aunties, a little bit of her dad, a product of 2 big brothers, yet ultimately her own person. Strong, yet sweet.
I have a few collected pieces in her room.
Some truth for her to meditate on (when she decides to sit still). Gifts from friends who love her and trinkets that used to belong to her Great Grandma.
She’s got white walls, because we don’t yet know how her story is going to be written. But ultimately I feel like this little one is going to color outside the lines, and the white will only represent limitless possibilities for her. She’s going to be a world changer this one.
PS that bowl was ultimately the first piece of inspiration for her room. Unfortunately, she broke it into 100 little pieces mere MINUTES after showing her what would hold her hair clips for her room. LESSON: make sure the design choices are also PRACTICAL for two-year-olds.
Anyway, that’s Brynley’s big girl room.
