During my third pregnancy, my husband and I spent a lot of time switching most of the major rooms in our home to accommodate our growing family. Our family room moved to the basement, the master bedroom moved to the first floor to replace the family room, Ginny moved into our old room, and luckily the nursery stayed the same. Thank goodness for having three little girls so our nursery decor didn’t have to change because all of the other changes took quite a lot of planning and time.
While I’ll never consider any of our rooms finished, I’m excited to share the progress of our oldest daughter’s new room – her “big girl room” will eventually be shared with our middle daughter and has everything I love in a room: pink, area rugs, a variety of patterns, wallpaper, and some whimsical details.
This is a space that we all spend a lot of time in now, that I feel happy with, and will probably continue to update until it’s *just* right.

Thank you COLORAY for the wallpaper!
The whole foundation for the room started with the wallpaper; I took it to Instagram to help me decide – I ultimately chose this Graphic Vine peel and stick paper, which is way easier to apply than traditional wallpaper and it doesn’t ruin your walls because it just peels right off! Since I added different area rugs, this design was the perfect way to add interest without clashing with the patterns.
I kept my makeup table/desk in the room for Ginny, complete with the pink chair – she’s delighted to inherit both. Now she has a space for her accessories and a place to read and draw. Also, tucked behind her door is her fairy door – that’s where Lillybelle lives. Learn more about fairy doors here – spoiler alert – they’re an amazing parenting hack.
Every home needs this beautiful book collection, too! It’s as much a piece of art as it is beautiful literature.
This doll house was THE best Facebook marketplace find. It’s enormous and opens up to display gorgeous, big rooms, complete with figurines and the most detailed furniture. I’ll link some alternatives here:
