Good Bye Hundred Acre Wood!
Good Bye Snow White! Bella has been relentless about getting a room "just like Mommy's." So B painted the room so I could get started with what I do best...fun decorating! I never realized how opinionated my children are about decorating! Let just say there was a lot of compromising. They wanted "Rainbows all over! My little ponies prancing around!! How about Ariel swimming somewhere??!!" Of course I wanted something neutral, vintage, French...but I had to keep reminding myself this is their room. And this is where we met in the middle.
I gave them choices with their bedroom color and they went with pink. Ok I can do that.
I really didn't want to spend a lot of money redoing their room. So I told them to shop the house. Oh boy, did they shop the house...more like my bedroom. The moment I said it, Bella ran straight to my bedroom and started pointing out everything she wanted.
My pink velvet chair. I spray painted a tree branch and used it to hang their accessories and tutus. The room is pretty small. By the time I put two beds and a dresser in, there was no more room. I knew all of my decorations have to be on the wall.
My adorable mirror. I really wanted the room to be a little bit more grown up but still have that fairy tale whimsy feel. I have been collecting birdcages for awhile. So I made a wall out of them.
My angel wings. Sweet little vignettes.
The girls love it. I think it is the perfect place to read the day away.
And to wonder if the world outside is as magical as their own little magical space.
I have to say...I could so live in this room.
