While my youngest still likes pink, she recently asked me to add some yellow to her room and make it like a fairy garden. If you’ve been following the story of her ever-changing pink room here and here, then another update shouldn’t surprise you.
Pink + Yellow = Happy
It just took a little shopping to find some playful yellow accents to incorporate into her room. But this time I made a concerted effort to include more storage solutions. Clutter drives her crazy (hmmm, wonder where she gets that from).
Nothing freshens a kids room quicker than a timely rearrangement of furniture, particularly the bed. We turned it 90 degrees and at the center of the wall to create two zones in the room: 1) play and read, and 2) get dressed ready for school.
The “play” side of the room included a bean bag chair by the bookshelf, a trunk of her favorite stuffed animals and a soft rug for floor play.
Giant wall clings give her the feeling of being a tiny little fairy in her own little world.
I repurposed two old frames into fabric-covered magnet boards (like we had done for her sister previously here).
The curtains are simple linen panels with clip on flowers and a lovely flower ball to give it some oomph.
We added holiday string lights because every kid likes string lights!
I weaved the lights into the simple tie hold backs.
The bed itself became the color centerpiece, with mix and match pinks and yellows.
Dressing Room Space
Moving her dresser next to the closet and hanging a full length mirror made for a natural “get ready” zone.
Kids come with a lot of stuff. This fun gardening accessory from HomeGoods is the perfect perch for bedside necessities.
I tried to keep the surfaces by her bed clear. We’ll see how long that lasts.
Her “Lego’s and Friends” collection became a village on a shelf over her desk.
Before and After Shots
