Emma's Bedroom Reveal

Emma's Bedroom Reveal

 Last spring I started redecorating Emma's room.  There are still a few finishing touches I would like to add, but I thought I would share the progress so far....

When it came time to paint there was no question what color this 4 year old girl wanted.... pink, pink, pink!  Pink can be a tricky color to pick out, but I absolutely adore the shade we chose.  It is Powder Blush by Benjamin Moore.  It is the perfect "little girl pink", not too bright and not too bubblegum.

the curtains....

butterfly mobile...

and glass knobs...

The rest of her room is filled with lots of little handmade details like her

sweet little dolls


And hand made pillow...

This little pillow is one of my favorite things in the entire room!  I embroidered the sweet little dress from a



Sarah Jane Studios

. Then I sewed it into a throw pillow.

I love the floral print on the front and the stripes on the back.

On the opposite wall from the bed you will find the

polka dot couch

and a series of prints from

Sarah Jane Studios

.  I discovered her work about a year ago and fell in love!  Her prints are so beautiful and so perfectly capture the innocence of childhood!

I had these small square frames laying around for a while.  I spray painted 4 of them antique white then covered the others with fabrics from the Riley Blake "Marguerite" line.

In this small skinny place between the two doors, I hung these four little applique pictures that I made for Emma while I was pregnant.

And no little girl's room is complete without a chandelier....

And just for fun, here are the before and after shots...
