Girls’ Room Inspiration


A few weeks ago we painted the big girls’ room. When we moved in, it looked like this…


I will show a very rough progress photo tomorrow or next week! I thought I’d share some inspiration photos for their eventual room. The main inspiration for the girls’ room is — surprise! — their old room.



Oh how I love the girls’ old room– light & airy! It was always my favorite room in our old house. So we ended up painting the room the exact same colors in this house.

Here are some lovely, inspiring photos: (click the photo to go to the source)

The inside of the girls’ rather-large closet is pink. I would love to add some gold polka dots to it like this:

Now, bed inspiration. When we moved out of our old house, the girls were both in toddler beds. One of the first purchases we made for our new house were twin-sized mattresses + box springs. We still need to get them headboards & a nice comforter/quilt/duvet.

Here are my initial inspiration photos for what I would love! love! love! for their room:



This is one of the most beautiful headboards! Goodness! Rust’s woodworking skills aren’t quite up for that. : ) I wish we could have something custom-made like this! I never realized how much I was drawn to arched headboards, but I love them!



This room is another of my favorite inspiration photos! Lovely lovely lovely!

Since having two custom headboards built isn’t an option, I have been searching and searching online for arched paneled beds in white. My favorite one is $800 each — and since we’re buying two! — that is not going to happen. : ) But it’s still pretty.

Last, I’ll share one of my favorite bedroom photos, among some of the first things I pinned on Pinterest nearly 2 years ago! The blog it was originally posted to is no longer active, so I have no clue the source of this lovely, lovely room!


While I am not a yellow-walls kind of gal, I really love butter/mustard yellow-especially on beds! While I don’t think the girls will end up with yellow quilts or coverlets for their bedspread, I still keep coming back to this image to inspire me to create the same light, cozy feel in their room. I am keeping this option open for Cate’s room someday.

For the girls’ bedspreads, I will probably end up with something light & airy, solid with not a long going on.

A long, long time ago when I was pregnant with Anna, I saw some bedding from Serena & Lily — called “Gracie”. Sadly, it’s been discontinued! It was what I always imagined for the Anna’s room.

However, I love these quilts from Serena & Lily, but I’m having a hard time talking Rust into them! : )



And, lastly, just for fun, here’s two beautiful quilts that are super fun & colorful! I don’t think something this colorful will end up in the girls’ room, but there’s something about these that just keep drawing my eye!

This gorgeous bedroom is from Black And White and Loved All Over. Isn’t it beautiful?

Okay, so this ended up being all over the place! Tomorrow or Monday I’ll share our very small progress on the girls’ room + our huge list of to-do’s for that room!
