I’m so excited to finally share my daughter’s big girl room makeover with you today! Creating it was so much fun and I really enjoyed mixing existing beloved pieces with a few new additions. There were several pieces in her room that I knew I wanted to keep including her bed, dresser and chandelier. The one thing I really wanted to invest in however, were quality textiles: a beautiful rug and bespoke window treatments, bedding and lampshade). Although they are undeniably investment pieces, I think they’re the elements that truly give a room that professionally designed and polished feel. To make this possible, I was lucky enough to collaborate with some of my personal favorite home decor and textile sources including Annie Selke, Lauren Haskell Designs and Sorella Glenn, which made the project even more exciting!

P.S. Even though during the day this is what her nightstand looks like, it changes a little at night…
My daughter has just reached the age where her imagination is getting really vivid and the sounds of the house settling at night scare her and the thought of monsters hiding behind open closet doors feels like a real possibility. So, when I bought the giant foo dog temple jar for her dresser, I explained to her it was a sign of good luck and protection. She now asks if I can put it by her bed at night facing her door and closet to guard her and scare the monsters away. Oh my mama heart! It’s a lot of shuffling around before bed- but if I kept it on the floor during the day it would be shattered in less than an hour. I love having this shot below to remind me of such a darling detail of her childhood that I know I will most likely forget.
Thanks again for stopping by!
