Kelly's "Big Girl" Room

Recently, Kelly wrote to me about her daughter's 'big girl' room:

Dear Lauren,

We are getting ready to transition our daughter into a "big girl" room. She will be two in December and a big sister in February. We recently purchased a full size bed in white, and we have her bedding: Pottery Barn Kids, Lillian Quilted Bedding in pink. The wall color is currently a light blue or a bluish gray (Val spar paint: Happy Cloud). I have been considering painting the room a different color for her but I thought it might be okay to stay blue? Your thoughts? I am open to ideas!! 

I have purchased letters to spell her name (Belle): Pottery Barn Teen, Wire Wall Letters. And you will see a bench in the photos that I got at a garage sale and would like to paint and recover, I thought it would look cute under the window or at the foot of her bed. My dilemma: curtains/window treatments, a fabric for the bench, accent pillows on her bed, dresser, night stand, book and toy storage ideas, rocking chair . . . I love interior design blogs, mommy blogs and ETSY and search and search for stuff but I have a hard time completing the look with fun decor pictures, fun fabrics etc. How do i get it all to come together? I love your eclectic style.



You all know how I love creating idea boards for childrens' spaces, and I wanted to get right to work on this one, but the transition back to work has been hard on me and with Violet getting sick this one took a little longer than usual. Thanks so much to Kelly for her patience! I usually come up with a few variations of the board throughout the process, so I thought I'd share all of them with you this time:

No. 1

No. 2 (requested more art, bunting, pillow)

Hmmm...I may have to have another girl so that I can use this board for myself!
