Tuesday Tour: Daughter’s Room

This week, I am sharing our 13-year old daughter’s bedroom. This has been her room for the last 10 years, and, as with my son’s room, very little has changed! The color scheme is pink, green and white, and I attempted to create a shabby-chic-inspired space. The room is painted Sherwin-Williams Sagey, which is a very pale green. The pink wool rug is from Pottery Barn Kids. The floral pink and green chandelier is from Land of Nod, as is the Jenny Lind dresser. Behind the headboard, you will notice a wooden play stand covered by a pink cloth cover–this is essentially a little playhouse that holds all my daughter’s American Girl dolls and accessories and is still the most popular place to play when friends come to visit. It is so cute, but my daughter wouldn’t let me share photos of it—and she may be outgrowing it: This is the space where she envisions a swinging rattan chair (see post about it here) in the near future!

The Ikea desk is the same model as the one in her brother’s room. The curtains are from the Shabby Chic collection for Target (as are the baskets and much of the bedding)—I just added the pink pom-pom trim using hot glue. Using double-sided tape, I added pink Grosgrain ribbon and Ric Rac trim to the lamps to give them a little color and character. My daughter decorated the hanging C initial above the desk at a birthday party using scrapbook paper squares and Mod Podge, and I just love it. I thought it was a great kids’ party activity.


DSC02585My daughter likes to change the styling on her dresser seasonally. I especially like this rainbow inspired display that she did for spring this year. She also changes what she displays in the Mason jars–this time, it is puzzle erasers and crayons to go with the rainbow theme. She enjoys creating artwork, so we made this gallery wall (below) next to her dresser where she can display her creations. She made the pottery bowls on the desk and dresser at summer camp. She has been collecting dollhouse miniatures for many years, and there are various dollhouses with intricate setups on the floor around the periphery of the room (could she be an interior designer in the making?!).

DSC02564.JPGThe framed flower prints above the bed are from a Cavallini and Co. calendar. You can read my post about framing calendar prints here. I painted the mattes with pink watercolor paint to add a touch of color.

Thanks as always for stopping by!

  2. What a little girl dream room! So girly and pink I love it. The armoire is super chic too. Ahh American girl dolls were such a big obsession of mine back in the day too. That’s great she’s into those. Something she can keep forever.
