As part of Claire’s birthday present (she’ll be three in 2 weeks!!), Brian and I are updating her big girl room. We’re actually switching her room with the current guest room. Her room right now is at the front of the house, which gets morning sun and we think wakes her up earlier than necessary on Saturdays. Plus, it’s right next to ours so after she goes to bed it’s hard to watch TV or take showers without distrubing her. It took some convincing for me to switch rooms, though, because I had a vision for her current room that won’t quite work in the new one, but we’re still going with the same basic concept.
Here’s Claire’s current (messy) room:
And here’s the current guest room (future big girl room):
The guest room won’t change much in it’s new location…it’s pretty low on the priority list of getting something stylish done with it. It has furniture that I’ve had since my first apartment after college and is a fine place for guests to stay. It will get some upgrades down the road…but not now.
And lastly – here is the moodboard that I created for Claire’s new room – I made it at olioboard.com. Very cool! We actually already have paint in the walls in the new room, so now it getting the curtains made, replacing all the baseboards (we’re upgrading little by little through the whole house), and getting the accessories in. We hope to have the big room reveal around Claire’s birthday in two weeks.
Everyone knows I love some Pottery Barn simplicity in my rooms, and this one is no exception! I’m excited to see how it turns out!
Hope everyone had a great holiday and is looking forward to a relaxing weekend!
