Big Girl Room Reveal

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. The one thing I really wanted to invest in however, was quality textiles: a beautiful rug and bespoke window treatments, bedding and lampshade). Although they were definitely 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!

I knew I needed an ivory rug in this room and kept coming back to this one from Annie Selke for months, but was nervous it would be covered in stains or destroyed from all the running and jumping that goes on her room. When it arrived and I unrolled it, I remember thinking it was too beautiful to last but I’ve been proven wrong! It’s durable, cleans like a dream and nearly six months later still looks brand new- all with minimum upkeep on part. It really is the perfect, neutral family friendly rug and even Mr. Soph-isticated Style is in disbelief. Here’s to hoping I’ve made him a believer in investing in high quality rugs!



I used two of these baskets in her room to add texture and hide toys. Don’t be fooled, each one is filled with stuffed animals, bead kits and lots of random toys.

One of the reasons I opted for a neutral rug was because I knew I wanted to do a lot of pattern play in her room. I had already ordered (yet another) one of my go to white table lamps and bedside table and was like a kid in candy shop, pouring through Sorella Glenn lampshades- the colors and patterns are unbelievably gorgeous! For the Euro shams I instantly knew I wanted to use the treillage fabric from Alexis Walter’s new textile line to add a spot of green and am so happy with how it turned out!


The chinoiserie fabric from Lauren Haskell Designs for the shades was actually the very first thing I picked out for the makeover and ended up designing the rest of the room around it. I fell in love with the print and the soft palette and I ended up having a coordinated bedskirt and bolster made as well. The monogrammed greek key shams are from Ballard Designs and although you can’t see them, her sheets are the same coordinating pink.


The trinket dish is from Courtland and Company and I love all these sweet woven elements paired with soft pinks, greens and purples. I should note, this isn’t her permanent nightstand and this one will be arriving (hopefully) soon!

I hung a combination of Rose Medallion and Fitzhugh plates on her wall along with this sweet watercolor by Riley Sheehey framed by Framebridge.


Tea parties, puzzles and legos are some of her favorite past times at the moment, so I wanted to create a little play space for when she has friends over or wants to have some alone time. The table is Pottery Barn Kids and these chairs were from a favorite local refinishing company Fostered Furnishings. I ended up wanting two more and was able to find them here! They are resin and spills wipe right off- win win.

My daughter was very adamant about helping style her dresser and I was so proud! I kept moving the dog’s ears out of her face, but she kept covering them up because she though she might be feeling shy having her picture taken. Who can argue with that? The foo dog temple jar was arguably one of my best consignment store finds to date!

The mirror is a family heirloom and the dresser is actually the one we bought for her nursery. I switched out the nickel colored knobs that originally came with it, with these brass ones.


I do have a few more changes that will be made, like switching out her nightstand with this one that I can’t wait to arrive but it’s currently backordered. I also need to add wallpaper to the back of her bookcase (which I’ll share in stories) and in upcoming months, as much as I adore her play table, she is getting to tall for it and have this one on my list. I just haven’t ordered it because i keep forgetting to measure!
