Georgia's Big Girl Room Inspiration

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

With visions of another nursery running through my head (as we patiently wait 3 more weeks to find out if baby #2 is a boy or a girl!), I am trying to sort through Georgia's "Big Girl Room" as well!  AKA her toddler room.  We will definitely keep her crib in there for a while but the way our house is designed we are planning to move her into a bigger room across the hall before the baby comes.  We will probably do this late Spring, so she has time before the baby comes to adjust.  But gosh I just don't know where I want to go with this.  We will most likely do a daybed that she will transition into between 2. and 3 years old.  I just love the look and feel of daybeds and I grew up with one so it has some sentimental value as well.  And I love that it can roll out a trundle for a friend!  So daybed it is, But other than that I have one million ideas!  I know I want it to be fun.  I know I want her to be able to grow into the room and I know I want it to feel more grown up without feeling too old.  So here are some of my inspirations all found on my Pinterest Board here.  Which are yalls favorites?  Any tips for this mama?

Love the inspiration, especially the top photo with the bright walls which make it fun and the chandelier which makes it grown up and fancy!
Tips for putting together a transitional room would be to pick a good paint color. One that doesn't scream "little girl." They grow out of pinks if they grown up with pinks. I really loved the blue in that photo- so fun and different for a little girls room. Also, don't spend a fortune on decorating. A couple of ETSY spurges and some diy projects will make you feel okay when it's time to change in some of the decorating pieces (wall art, quotes, garland, etc) for more grown up versions :) Then the room can slowly grow with her by simply changing out some of the d├ęcor every few years!
