We’re slowly getting started on Greta’s room. I thought for a long time about it, and I interviewed her about what she wanted (not a ton of help there!). Haha. And ultimately, I decided to go for a feminine schoolhouse feel. Of course some of this could evolve as we start putting things together, but here’s a mood board of where we’re headed:
1. I love the idea of doing 2/3 painted walls in her room, painting the top 1/3 the same fresh white as the ceiling. For the bottom part, we’re thinking a dusty blush color, but we’re waiting to see the duvet in person before we choose a paint color. It could end up yellow or sage green (oooo!) or even navy. Who knows!
2. Greta has proved that she is old enough to handle having some books and toys in her room without being up all night. We were just reminiscing on the days when we had to clear out all the toys every night and even unscrew her lightbulb so she would turn it on and off for hours. To celebrate, a bookshelf for storing some toys and books has her (and us) very excited!
3. We are moving her bed against the wall for more play space and love the idea of her having a wall lamp above her bed. She’s been asking for a lamp for a couple months, and this feels like a way that she can have one without me worrying about her knocking it over. Am I worrier? Maybe. I love this white one with gold accents.
4. This duvet was what started the whole room design. It has all of Greta’s favorite colors in it and it’s floral and it has a vintage flare to it. So sweet.
5. Obviously Greta isn’t representing any school just yet, but I love, love LOVE this pennant. My sister in law designed it in partnership with Oxford Pennants (so proud of her). It’s also a little whimsical as it is a nod to the good folks at Disney that helped to make all of us who we are today. Am I right?
6. I am going back and forth between a schoolhouse style light and this lovely white pendant with a gold interior. I am sure you understand the struggle.
7. A chalkboard is a must. I love how this one is lined for easy letter practice! I can’t wait to see Greta and her friends play school with it.
So that’s where we’re headed. We’re all ready to say goodbye to the blue walls in there and implement something more suitable for our girl. Can’t wait!
