My Daughter's Room

Hello sweet people!  I thought I'd show you a few photos of my daughter's room today.  I've mentioned a time or two that I've been working on it and while there's always more I'd love to do, I'm just going to call it done.  Yay! 

When I was first thinking about what I should do in this room, I was in such a quandary.  I like things neutral, while my daughter's favorite bright color changes by the day. With that in mind, I hoped to create a space that I thought blended well with our home, but was still cozy and fun for my four-year old Little Miss.  In the end, I chose to keep things as neutral as possible and just let her toys add the colorful jazzy part :)


The color combination in this room makes me think of Neapolitan ice cream...so yummy...with lots of pink, brown and creamy white.  The duvet and shams are from Restoration Hardware.  They're soft pink and have ruffled frayed edges, which I think gives them a nice old well-loved feeling.  I found the sheets at Bed, Bath and Beyond and couldn't believe how well the color matched.  I love the pattern too...very simple with a white background and pink leaves.


Of course, I had to add some flowers to pretty things up.  I found some beautiful peachy-pink Stock and some Chamomile too.  I popped them into this old enamel bucket for a nice informal flower arrangement.


A few of the things in her room I made...the slipcover for the lampshade, the bedskirt, the brown bed pillow, the chalkboard and the white pennant flags.  Gotta give a shout out to the Mister too since he made the bench.

I just finished the bedskirt this week.  Whew...was that a job!  All those gathers...I was wondering if my sewing machine was going to be able to manage.  Luckily, it got 'er done.  I made the pennant awhile ago.  You may remember me telling you that my daughter thought it looked like shark's teeth.  She told my mom that when she first saw her her room she was "torrified."  Terrified and horrified all rolled into one...how nice.  Luckily, she's okay with it now :)


I wish I had more pictures to show you, but I had a hard time just getting the few that I did...the room isn't very large and the light is a little off, so photography is a bit of a challenge.  There's not that much more to see, just her little kitchen and the closet doors :)

Hope you have a good weekend!

  1. Oh, your photos! I just can't get over your lovely photos every time I come over here. That room looks pretty darned done to me! I'd be delighted to have it myself. I'm gonna pin it to my Pinterest in fact.

  2. Keeping it neutral is the smart thing to do. That way the accessories can offer pops of color. It's a relaxing, inviting space. Well done.

  3. Tricia, I LOVE it! What a beautiful and inspiring little girls room! And yes, the colors do remind me of Neopolitian ice cream, too. :)

    You have done an amazing job on her room & I did not know you were also talented on the sewing machine! May I ask you where you got the white "E" on her wall? I would love to have one like that for Livvy!

    You have such a wonderful style. I love how you keep things simple & not overly done.. but very interesting & calming on the eye.

    Take Care!

  5. The room looks beautiful Tricia! I just love the skirt. What a great job. Did you attach it to a flat piece or did you use velcro? I want to make one that is easy to remove for my own room.
    I agree with Brenda. The photos are gorgeous. How do you get the soft tones like you do?

  6. Tricia...I LOVE the color scheme you did, it's so soft and pretty, I'd love my own room done like this! Very well done and I am happy that your little angel loves it, too! :-)

  11. I looks gorgeous! I love the color palette, very delicate and feminine. With the neutral tones, she'll definitely be able to add lots of bright colored accessories/toys to her heart's content. Love your idea. And wow, you made that bed skirt? My jaw just hit the floor. Just wow. Great work all around.

  32. This is so sweet. Thanks for posting the photos.

    You are educating your daughter's eye by surrounding her with subtle good taste.

    I hear you on the bedskirt sewing. Most of what you can buy are boxy tailored ones, and the ruffled ones are skimpy. When I made one of drapery weight fabric I thought my sewing machine would gag! The next time, rather than attach the ruffle to a mattress cover, I just hemmed one very long length of fabric and ran elastic through one long hem, then pinned it to the mattress cover after arranging the gathers.

  44. Oh Tricia it looks absolutely wonderful! Her dreams will be a little sweeter now!

    My daughter is just graduated from college and her room right now looks like a bad mix of her, me and her dorm "stuff". This room will not get a makeover until she moves out! I am not rushing it but I've already started my idea file!

  64. Still, so very beautiful!

    You can have some of our heat! We were up to 100 or 101 today with the heat indexes beyond real. I think the indexes were 110! Not fun, especially when I wanted to paint in the garage. I did attempt to, and felt like I was in an actual sauna. Lot's of showers here !

    p.s. please don't be offended but I had to take off that picture with those guys in those yellow shorts and oh those socks! lol

    thank you for your sweet comments.

    Her room is so soft and precious.
    All the little details "make" it.

    We have a drop cloth bedskirt that I had made, and when I picked it up from the seamstress years ago, she told me to never tell a soul that she made it...because she never wants to make another one. :)
