Last week we shared a sneak of Greta’s room in our weekly Love Letter and it’s really about time it made a blog appearance! Greta’s room is probably the most under-reported room in our house. Back in November we painted it (Romance by Sherwin Williams) and I shared it on Instagram, but never on the blog. I just found an unpublished draft of the post! I’m not sure how that ever happened but let’s play catch up today!
Often times, I see something and it reminds me of Greta and I get it for her room. Without ever having a mood board or plan for it, it’s been slowly getting little updates in the background. And you know? It’s kind of fun to add pieces in when something pops up! Here’s what Greta’s room looked like before moving in.
It’s kind of funny because Greta’s room isn’t even on our 2022 project list, but did we just unintentionally do a phase 1 reno?? I think we might have and it’s so darling.
Raise your hand if you recognize where these curtains came from? These were custom made for Polly’s Modern Cottage room, and I’m just absolutely in love with how they contrast with the pink walls (although I’m thinking I might want a few more panels). We hung these shortly after the fresh coat of paint, and I knew I wanted to bring in some other elements to tie them in. Cue the new nightstands!
Just last week we carried in these two gorgeous nightstands that I’m in love with. I stumbled upon the more expensive version of these nightstands and I fell in love with them so much that I hunted for a dupe. I took the “in stock and ready to ship” as a sign to purchase immediately! They came so fast and they’re exactly what her room needed. They’re the best height and a beautiful blue color that ties in so well with her curtains. Once I had the nightstands in place, I purchased this table lamp set in black and I’m going to swap out the shades!
Peep the glow in the dark galaxy stickers on the ceiling because you’re only a kid once :). Of course the arrival of the nightstands spurred a rug change–something soft to let the curtains and bolder nightstands shine through. The Jules Natural Ocean rug is really the supportive role and I love how it plays with the peachy pink walls too. Here’s another before angle!
We actually purchased this dresser from McGee and Co for our bedroom when we moved in! By the time it arrived, it was clear that Greta needed it more in her room plus I think it really softens up the pink walls. We set it right next to her closet for easy dressing and access.
Still to come will be some blackout roller shades for her windows since the sunlight really pours in through her windows. Swapping out the boob light in here, which I know will drastically change everything! The biggest addition will be a desk area to the left of her bed. I’m envisioning lots of art ledges and pin up boards for our little artist who creates for hours every day. For now, I’m so happy with this feminine, preteen bedroom we’ve created for it. It feels very playful, yet mature and Greta seems so happy to have this space for herself.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
