Hey everybody! It's Elizabeth from little black door and I'm excited to be here and chat with y'all about my daughters' bedroom. Sadie + Stella is part of my morning routine, usually right after breakfast but before my second glass of tea, so of course I was over the moon when Lindsay asked me to participate in such a fab series. I just may have raised the roof when I read the email. I live in a small cottage with my hubs and two little girls (5 1/2 and 2) and we like to pack a lot of fun into our little space. So when it came time to redo the bedroom my girls' share for the One Room Challenge, I knew I wanted it to be like them, bright and fun with a good dose of silly.
Pink of course was a top request, but my little clients also wanted blue and green. Swear. A yellow rug was in my head from the beginning, who knows why, and I've been thrilled to find the right one at Pottery Barn. Dhurrie rugs are an excellent choice for rooms with little ones. The dresser was an estate sale find that servered as a changing table for many years until I gave it a new coat of paint and some new hardware. The silhouettes were a really simple DIY project that I had wanted to try for years.
I mixed up the bedding using the colors in the lamp shade fabric as my inspiration. My oldest picked out the fabric, Portobello Vase (Blossom colorway) , and I think it is the perfect representation of the room - classic pattern, youthful colors. The seersucker bolsters were given some navy grosgrain to tie in the monogram and the dresser.
The mini vanity is a heavily used piece and the location of many fights. (it's hard to share a space when all you want to do is stare at yourself in the mirror) I added the navy trim and gold knobs to tie it into the navy in the dresser and drum shade. It all comes back to navy. And elephants.
