In case you missed it, I’m formally designing my daughter’s “large lady room” (see the design scheme right here, in the event you’d like!) It’s wild. In my thoughts she continues to be THIS. However apparently time has different plans (*impolite*). And although I deliberately designed her nursery in a means that might develop along with her, it by no means actually occurred to me that I might really be introduced with this part of life. On the time it felt like I used to be planning for means (means) within the distant-by no means-going-to-happen future.
RELATED: THE ORIGINAL NURSERY
However alas, right here we’re three and a half seconds later – seemingly… I gained’t lie, I went by a little bit of a mourning part at first, however now I’m fairly darn excited for my lady. She’s been asking to get out of her crib/toddler mattress for some time now and it feels so great to make this occur for her. We’ve made heaps of progress on her house since I final up to date you.
All of this, nevertheless, has had me excited about one thing I at all times do after I’m designing a youngsters room, however have by no means actually shared. And that’s to essentially ensure that I’m designing the house for the lengthy haul.
Belief me, I do know firsthand that it’s so tempting to plaster a nursery with child bunnies and candy as might be particulars… However the actuality is that these little nuggets develop out of those areas so rapidly. As they are saying, you blink and also you’ll miss it.
So my most popular methodology of designing a youngsters room is to ensure that these base layers really feel timeless and basic. I achieve this by sourcing gadgets that may actually serve them at every part of life (not simply the primary). The dresser, the rug, the wall coverings/color… As soon as that’s full I then prefer to layer in these sickeningly candy particulars. Cute artwork, lovely toss cushions in candy materials, teeny tiny booties, blankets, and significant shelf tchotchkes are all honest recreation right here. They’re all issues that may effortlessly be switched out in a while.
With that in thoughts, now that my daughter has grown out of her crib we made certain to buy her a very stunning “large lady” mattress (this one right here!) It’s one she could have for the remainder of her life, so far as I’m involved. It was the solely furnishings merchandise we would have liked to change out in an effort to fully reinvent her house for her. Every part else has remained as is. The replace has been so seamless to this point.
Layla Grayce, purveyors of a number of the most stunning timeless, classical, furnishings items, generously gifted our daughter’s mattress to us and I’m so wildly grateful. I really like that it feels delicate and female, however not excessive saccharine. Although I’m after all open (and inspiring!) of my daughter discovering her personal fashion, I secretly admit that I really like the notion of her taking her childhood mattress off to her first house along with her. Gah, the romance! And if, down the road, she decides it simply isn’t for her I’m no worse for the wear and tear. I imply, it is a piece I already know I’ll love for many years to return – I’m comfortable to present it a endlessly house.
We’re getting a lot nearer – I’m excited to get my workplace again (haha), and for our lady to start out having fun with her large lady room in due time.
Thanks to Layla Grayce for partnering with me on my daughter’s bed room. And thank YOU for supporting my companions <3
