Girls' Room....DONE!

This has been a long time coming so needless to say I'm excited to finally be at the finish line!  I wanted this space to grow with my girls over time and be flexible and neutral enough for them to change things in and out as they age.

Here is where we started...





And here is the after....














 The antique highboy dresser, small china cabinet, and small dresser in the closet were all from a gal here in my town.  She finds old vintage pieces and refinishes them.  We were so excited to find her as I feel good about reusing what is already out there and her work is amazing!  



This china cabinet is perfect for the girls to display all of their special treasures and we even found a note inside dating back to 1955 as this was once someone's wedding gift!









I'm very passionate about putting spaces together and this one was extra special for me!  Thanks for letting me share it with you!   

Happy Creating Friends!

  1. What a seriously beautiful update Nicole! I love the fun and girly vibe of the decor and how sophisticated the design is that it will grow as your girl bean grow. You are one talented lady for sure and this one has your heart all over it :) Hope your week is off to a marvelous start!

  3. Hi Nicole! Oh, I love this room. I clicked and enlarged and studied and took it all in. Your girls have a beautiful room. I have a friend and her husband who own a furniture consignment shop and they are always painting china cabinets, chests etc. to re-purpose. How neat that you found a note from 1955 in the china cabinet. Wouldn't the bride that rec'd that be thrilled that your girls are enjoying it. I love the colors, the art and especially the butterfly and dragonfly touches! The twin beds that belonged to your grandparents are sweet.....my sis and I shared a room with twin beds growing up. By the way, do your girls occasionally draw an imaginary line down the middle of the room when things aren't going well??? lol
    You did a fabulous job.

  4. Hi Nicole. You are such an amazing artist in all you do! The bedroom is exquisite! (I like that word!) I love that the twin beds were passed down in your family....they really are show pieces. You brought it all together wonderfully! Happy Gardening! xx

  7. Wonderful transformation! I really love the way you have used different patterns and textures to create this warm, engaging space. And the little shelf area of current favorite books - such a great idea! Thank you for sharing.

  8. Hi Nicole - I am amazed, well, then again, I'm not, because I know what a talented and creative Mom your two little girls have! They are so lucky to have this beautiful room to grow in - every detail is wonderful, from the drapes to that beautiful china cabinet! I love that you have re-used and re-purposed things you had on hand and used treasured family pieces to bring this gorgeous room together. The colors are wonderful - love all the little artistic touches. Very beautiful! xo Karen

  9. Nicole- Well, that is just a beautiful room. You have the same talent inside as you have in your gardens. Everything "flows" beautifully. I am tickled you were able to use some repurposed pieces...especially that hutch. How cute is that! You did a GREAT job and it is not too "little girl" so it can grow with them. Perfect! xo Diana

  10. Nicole: I think you could be an interior decorator. I was in awe of how the quilts you chose for the beds made the wood stand out so beautifully. I love the vintage pieces and how you arranged the art in the room. Job well done....you should be proud. Have a great week friend. Beckie xo

  11. oh, wow Nicole! It's such a gorgeous, perfect space.....so much great color, but it still manages to such a peaceful looking space. And great job striking the balance between a space that appeals to everyone in the family, but is still clearly a place that kids will love to be. Great idea putting the china cabinet in there--I bet they love having that space to display things :)

  12. I really love what you've done and echo what others have said about you could be an interior decorator. I guess it stands to reason that you have an eye for decor and design given you love to design gardens too. Have a great week ahead. I'm taking a bit of blogging break myself. xx

  14. Oh my gosh, Nicole, it is SO beautiful. I really, really love it. I've been hating the shared girls' room at my house lately and this is really making me wish I had room for two twins instead of a bunk. I seriously love everything thing that you've done. Perfection!

  15. The room looks very clean. Keeping the things in it's own place makes us to feel great in our house. Our house also will look very clean...

  16. It's beautiful!
    Every little detail is well thought. There is color and yet it's not aggressive. A calm yet playful room.
    The closet has the removable wallpaper? I want it!
    The room has notes of rustic and girly and classic all together, yet it is not overwhelming (to my eyes at least); I bet the girls loved their new room. :)

  40. You have a great starting space for your little girls. I just love the way you have used the beds in their original finish with the painted furniture. It all looks so cottagey and cozy. I'm not surprised you are so happy with this space, and your girls must be ecstatic!! Love all the details with the frames over the beds, the artwork here and there, and the colourful bed quilts! And those cute tiny dresses in the closet ... so adorable. There is certainly lots of room to grow with this decorating scheme. That chandelier is such a sparkly addition, I bet they want the light on all the time ;) You did a fabulous job with every element in this room Nicole!!
