I'm having a hard time believing that I'm even writing this post. Seriously.
I have zero idea how she is big enough for a "big girl room", but when Griffin started attempting to get out of her crib we knew it was time regardless of whether we were ready or not.
Boo hoo. :)
Enough of my sentimental rambling, on with the pictures.
Here's the view looking to the left standing in her doorway.
and to the right.
When I started thinking about her room I immediately started looking at colors. I looked at neutrals, corals, pinks, yellows and everything in between. Ultimately, I decided that I still REALLY loved the color her room was. It's the same color as the boys room and I loved that it's a little unexpected for a girls room. I also tend to think that green goes with everything. But that's just me.
We decided on going with the IKEA Hemnes day bed (exactly what the boys have as well) because of the HUGE drawers underneath. Her room is teeny tiny and there wasn't a ton of room for furniture (I wanted her to have lots of space to play) so this bed doubles as her bed and dresser.
The quilt is the rivulets bedding in fuchsia from Anthropologie and the sheets are Paisley Swirl from Pottery Barn teen. I squealed when I found the sheets because it tied in the fuchsia from the quilt and her wall color PERFECTLY and laid out the rest of my color palette.
Griffins bedtime necessity is her blanket from Saranoni and I'm waiting for the cream to come back in stock so I can order a giant one for our bed. I tried to capture the softness in a photo, but seriously.... they're ridiculously amazing. We're heading to Colorado in July and I grabbed one for each of the boys to take in the van.
The end of her bed is filled with stuffed animals, and we laugh so hard because she arranges them all nicely, but when she goes to bed she insists that they're all on the floor.
The monogram pillow is from Ann + Anthony and the super delightful Annie made it for Griffin. She was great to work with and the quality is fantastic.
Okay. So the gallery wall.
This wasn't my original intention for this wall... in fact, I had originally planned on the bed going underneath the window, but I wanted something to kind of tie the whole bed area together and thought that wrapping the gallery wall around would make it look unified. (That made total sense in my head - I'm hoping it made sense in writing)
I picked all back and white candids from Instagram to keep it a little less "busy" (says the woman with eight giant frames on the wall) and I absolutely love how it turned out.
The frames are the white Ribba series from IKEA and I had the prints made HERE. They were super inexpensive ($2/each instead of the $10 prints I found everywhere else) and the the quality is outstanding.
Since we don't have a playroom, I try to make the kids rooms spaces where they like to play and when I saw this play tent from Land of Nod I knew it would be a fun and whimsical spot for reading, dolls and puzzles.
I told you her room was little! :)
Okay - so the other side of the room...
With the drawers under her bed she didn't need a dresser for more drawer space and I wanted something with open shelving where we could stick toys, books, accessories, etc. I found the Hemnes sofa table from IKEA and knew it would be a great size and would function well in her room.
The chalkboard is a vintage window turned chalkboard that I found on Craigslist several years ago. It's chippy and imperfect and unique. The felt ball garland I made using felt balls from this Etsy shop. I had about 100 felt balls that I strung on embroidery floss using a regular needle and voila! It took about 15 minutes total.
The doll is an homage to Griffin's Canadian side and I found it at Pottery Barn and the little monster doll (called a Hoho) is from A Little Bit Funky. The wire basket was a Homegoods find and the glass jar that once held a candle now has Matilda Jane buttons.
I picked up the baskets at Home Goods and they hold some frequently worn shoes and bows.
The little shelf up top I found at Home Goods and I love that I can hang up her outfit for the next day.
If you haven't checked out Baby-Lit books before you need to - they're so cute!!! They're classics turned into primers about colors, letters, numbers, opposites, etc.
I have the absolute PLEASURE of working with Sprinklings Necklaces and Griffin has reaped the benefit :) Her necklaces are the best quality ones we've had and I love the sparkle factor they provide to her room. The cute holder is from Sprinklings as well!
These little faux plants are my favorite - the plant and the galvanized holder are both from IKEA and I think it was either $5 or $6 for both pieces.
The wire shelf is from HomeGoods (see a theme????) and holds several more Hohos as well as Ruby Blue RubyWraps.
The mirror was part of a dresser/mirror set that I got from a friend back when I was putting her nursery together. I didn't want to put the mirror above the dresser, so I painted it hot pink and had my dad hang it low so that she can see herself in it. We have so many fond memories of her as a baby blowing raspberries at herself and jibber jabbering to the baby in the mirror :) Now it's fun to see her try on bows and make funny faces in it.
The letter G was an Anthropologie find from a few years ago and the drawing was done by Brandis Allison (it's Griffin in her peacock costume from last Halloween). The necklace was from her first birthday Monster Party and the ostrich serves no purpose other than being ridiculously cute. :)
Her baby cradle was a gift from her Gram and Papa Mac last Christmas.
So far Griffin is loving her big girl room!
She cried a bit the first night in the bed, but after that she's been totally fine with being in her big girl bed. The only place she gets her pacis is in her bed, so we find her in here reading and having paci time often.
And to give a little more perspective, here's a panoramic picture...
I've had so much fun putting together this room for G and I hope it's a space that she loves for a long time.
