One Little Corner….D’s Room

2012 March 7

Since I gave you a little peek at all the elements that make up Kai’s room a little while back, I thought it would only be fair to give you a glimpse at Little D’s as well.

As mentioned, she is not an over the top girly-girl but it was actually me who balked at the idea of an all-pink room when we moved into our new house.

It took some convincing, but we opted for a beautiful cafe latte base color instead and chose to punch it up with elements of white and pink. Our painter, sensing Little D’s dismay at a brown room, came up with the brilliant idea of painting the inside of her closet bright pink, which she loved.

Her lovely (by my standards) latte wall was the perfect backdrop for this fun decal in pink. It’s the focal point of her room and allowed a subtle butterfly theme to suddenly take flight.

The canopy was one of those “living vicariously through your kids” things that I bought, hoping D would love it. She isn’t exactly making up stories about Prince Charming under there at night, but we both love the soft, playful element it brings to the room.

When I had Little D, wall letters were the trendiest things in baby decor and there were plenty to choose from. I opted for a more classic, whimsical take on them from one of my favorite stores and still love them five years later.

This pillow was one of my favorite finds from a recent trip to one of the best stores in New York and j’adore its nod to our second language.

Once we took the butterfly theme under our wings, these accents from Pottery Barn Kids were the perfect addition. We made over some very standard Ikea furniture in no time.

A lucite base lamp adds a hint of grown up style to the room and what preschooler wouldn’t love that? Ours is from Target, but looks a lot like this.

And this, my friends, is Vegas. He may not be Vegas to anyone else who is lucky enough to bring him home, but he’s Vegas to us because that’s where mama found him and fell in love. And he sits proudly at the end of Little D’s bed every night, where I hope he sits until she’s 21…as a reminder to stay out of trouble when she’s there.

    Little D has got a pretty cool room. The color theme sounds just right – Caffe latte base with punches of pink and white.

    “She isn’t exactly making up stories about Prince Charming” – Ha! Maybe she’s strategically planning to take over the kingdom instead. Go, D!
