Vintage Inspired Big Girl Room

Now that #2 is on the way, we have to make the decision on what to do with the bedroom situation.  Lillian's nursery was decorated gender neutral because we knew we wanted to have another child.  So now that the nursery is in place for whatever #2 surprises us with, we have to figure out what to do with Lillian! 

The idea is to turn the guest bedroom into her big girl room.  And I'm IN LOVE with this vintage inspired nursery.

Isn't it gorgeous?!

The main problem is I'm really not interested in painting over the wall color that's already in the room.  The color is called "Georgian Brick" and it looks just like it sounds:

Not the best picture but you get the point

Luckily the crib is white, there's a white shelf that goes all around the top of the wall, and there is good lighting in the room.

So far we've purchased the crib, bedding, a lamp, and a mirror.  I found the most beautiful vintage dresser, but unfortunately it was sold just before I got to the store :(.  It really was perfect.  I'm still upset over that!

Here is what we have:
The Convertible Crib
Super cute lamp I found from a local store

The bumper for her crib (this girl needs a bumper, she's a very dangerous sleeper!)

Crib Skirt

Crib Sheet
A vintage inspired mirror to go over the dresser (once we find one)

That's all we've got so far!  I can't wait to see it all come together.  Luckily we still have 6 months or so to make it happen. I would love to find a new light for the room, figure out what we'll put on the wall, and we might replace the mirror if I found out that fits the wall better.  I'm a little bit worried about the wall color, but we're determined to make it work!   I HATE painting!

  1. The vintage room looks great!!! We did the neutral decor in my sons room and since we were placed with my daughter 3 short months later we transitioned my son into a big boy bed upgrading into a new theme and passed the baby furniture down along with the Classic Winne the Pooh decor adding splashes of pink and purple when we found out she was a girl (a month before she was born) So I think thats an awesome idea you have! I dream about changing my daughters room theme however she will just need another change once she gets into the big girl bed a short year or so later... I am excited to see how all your painting and decor fall into place!

  2. I just stumbled along your blog from my friend Meredith's :) I LOVE the furniture you have picked out! That lamp is just beautiul! Congrats on baby #2, and have fun decorating!!
