We are getting ready to renovate Greta’s room and I can’t help but feel, didn’t we just do this?! Kind of. We had finished her last room shortly before we moved here. Her new room is a little dark, made darker by the current paint color. Made more depressing by the lack of anything.


We are in the gathering phase–ideas and materials–and thought it would be fun to ask Greta what she wanted in her room. This is the first time she didn’t say she wanted pink walls!! (does that get me out of it?)

She’s the sweetest and we’re so excited to make her room come alive. I’m researching fresh pink spaces and working on a mood board right now. Can’t wait to show you where we’re headed!

    She is the sweetest!!!! Pictures of me and my baby! Heart bursting right now.

  2. Haha “Me and my Baby” Loved hearing from the mouth of Greta!

  3. Emily Jane says:

    I have been working on my girls’ room for a while now. I ended up doing white walls with a coral ceiling. I have been surprised how much I LOVE it. The coral ceiling gives the whole room a rosey glow but it is not overwhelmingly pink.

  4. Lori! says:

    Genevieve Gorder just did the prettiest blush color in her daughter’s room. That would be so fresh and she could grow into it!
