A few weeks ago, I found the perfect room for my Littles. Like, I fell in love the second I saw it kind of perfect.
Luckily for me, Daffodil Design was crazy awesome and wrote a post on her lovely little room that contained a source list so my less than creative self could just copy it as much as I could.
Why do I love this room so much? First, I love how simple it is, yet charming. The girls’ room in the new house is almost exactly the same size as this room, so seeing it cemented in my brain that putting the girls in two twin beds would be perfect despite the small space and more ideal than bunk beds. I am in love with the color scheme and will copy it exactly (she even gave the paint color she used!), and lucky enough for me, most of what she used came from Ikea or Etsy! Woo hoo!
I ran into my first obstacle a few days ago. These absolutely charming beds are from Restoration Hardware. Even IF I could convince myself to unload that amount of change for beds, I couldn’t; they’ve discontinued these. Sad face (husband says happy face). So, I did the next best thing without having to break the bank:
Adorable, right?! This is the MINNEN children’s bed from IKEA. I love how I was able to find something that had the basic shape of the iron bed from RH. This bed is about the size of a twin (about 3 inches shorter, 3 inches narrower) so the girls will be able to use them for quite awhile. Best part? $149. So we snagged two of them up. I grabbed two white duvet covers as well that have a bit of texture to them; not the same as Daffodil’s but similar; I wanted to stick with white so that the duvet isn’t what draws attention to the room. I already have some of the white ledges for bookshelves, I just need to pick up a few more. I also already have a white bedside table from Crate and Barrel that will fit perfectly between the two beds. So, the only thing left I have to do is recover some pillows (I already have them, I just need to pick out the accent fabric I want), make some tissue balls for above the beds (I’m also going to add paper garland), grab a few white frames and the wall mounted lights from Ikea, and of course, paint…which funnily enough won’t be until last!
Love it? I do.
Speaking of the new house, they started working this week!
If only February would come a teensy bit sooner! 🙂 However, I am super thankful for the timetable in that it gives me plenty of time to plan, prepare, craft and save for all my new projects! That house you see almost completed behind it is a spec home and has almost exactly what we picked to go inside our home, so I can’t wait to tour through it and see what it will look like (that house is not our model…ours is a bit bigger). Such fun stuff!!!
I LOVE the beds!!! Not sure about white in a little girls bedroom, but I don’t have to keep it clean, so you go mom! I’ve been thinking about making small afghans for them but don’t have a color yet. I’m waiting for you to choose. I guess the black/pink/white scheme is past. Boy, if I still worked at Cholla High School, I could get those flowers in a day! Some of those kids are really good at them! Love the house start. Can’t wait!
