Welcome to my little lady’s abode!
It is hands-down my new favorite room in our house!
If you have been hanging around here for awhile, you know that I changed
my plans numerous times but all of the changes, planned or not, turned out for the best.
I was going for a fun, layered, eclectic look.
I knew I wanted some glam mixed with industrial and definitely nothing too babyish.
So let’s get on to the picture overload…
The rug was one of the elements that changed throughout this process.
I originally had planned to use a navy rug but when it arrived I was not loving it.
This kilim rug from Pottery Barn Teen was my second choice but
ended up being my favorite thing in the room!
I layered the rug over 2 natural fiber rugs from IKEA. Both rugs are layered over the beige carpet.
I hate the blah carpet and wanted to cover it and I also liked the idea of several rugs layered for a more collected feel.
Second to the rug, the stencil is my favorite part of this room.
I wanted the look and feel of wallpaper but definitely did not want the damage to my wallet.
At $15, it is ridiculously less expensive than any wallpaper and we were able to knock it out in a weekend. I used Martha Stewart’s metallic gold craft paint and a small sponge roller.
I definitely did not shy away from color or pattern in this room. In fact, I added as much of both as I could! I did not have an exact plan for all the details initially so much of the patterns and color combinations came together bit by bit. If I saw something I liked, I used it as long as it fit in with the general colors and feel of the room.
Our glider had been through my 2 boys and was in need of some TLC.
I used a local man for the reupholstery job (email me if you are in Charlotte because he is the best!)
I wanted to be able to use this chair in her room even when she outgrows a nursery so I chose a fabric that would be adaptable. I could possibly even see it in another room of our house.
This shelf was a steal that I will share more about later when I break down the deals for yall.
I tried to mix in some new and old items, like the picture of my own mom holding me just minutes after I was born next to the DIY accessories board I finished before she was born.
I also brought in a variety of items from around our house when styling her shelves.
I snagged these two Eiffel Tower Christmas ornaments from our tree!
They go perfectly with the mixed metals in the room and signify a really special place for me & Taylor!

Nothing is off limits for me when it comes to home decor,
if I like it, it works.
I saw this DOG TOY and knew it would make a perfect bookend.
I have seen similar “knots” in magazines and on blogs so I was thrilled to snatch up Fido’s toy for $6!
Since this room was one of the rooms added to the original house, it has a dormer which creates the perfect little play nook.
The pictures are from a children’s book framed in frames I bought at HomeGoods.
Paris is where we got engaged so it always plays into the rooms in our house.
I loved these simple watercolor drawings and thought they would be perfect inexpensive
art for her room.
I bought these cardboard birds once on a random Michael’s trip.
They have been sitting in a drawer for months so I decided to finally do something with them.
I painted them with the same metallic paint I used for the stencil and taped them to the ceiling.
The changing table got a little make-over as well.
New hardware to tie in more gold and add some antique (-looking) charm.
(Found at Hobby Lobby, but I only see the silver version online)
I again pulled bowls and vases from around my house including a small trinket box of my own.
I like the feel of things passed-down in a little girl’s room.
I did purchase the pink striped basket at Target to house all of her lotions and baby stuff.
And this art was a little creation of my own!
I simply painted the canvas gold then stuck vinyl letters on to spell the words.
I then painted over the whole thing with black paint and removed the stickers.
Voila…custom art for my little lady!
More gold? Yes please!
I mentioned my inspiration for this gold curtain hardware in this post.
I ended up swapping out the grey curtains for black for a little added drama.
My husband flat out laughed in my face when I said our newborn daughter needed a “dressing area.”
Without a closet in the room, the garment rack was a must and I absolutely love how it turned out.
I found the instructions here, and my wonderful brother-in-law, Jonathan, put the whole thing together.
I repurposed an old mirror that used to hang in our dining room.
A quick glossy coat of pink paint gave it new life.
Because, what girl doesn’t need a full-length mirror…even if they are 1 month old?!
I love being able to display her adorable tiny clothes and let them become part of the room’s design!
Her bedding is another place where I saved major moolah.
We are using the same crib I used for both boys which originally cost us $100.
I also used the same crib skirt but tweaked it with some pink pom-pom trim.
I purchased these crib sheets from Target.
Every time I walk in this room I feel a burst of happiness.
The colors. The patterns. The absolute girliness without being too sweet.
Seeing this little beauty doesn’t hurt either…
I think she likes it too…
I hope you all enjoyed the tour!
What do you think??
