Sprinkle Room! A Little Girls Dream Bedroom.

I am not going to lie, designing this room for Caroline enabled me to live vicariously through her and create the ultimate fun, bright colored, and coolest sprinkle room ever! When I first discovered sprinkle wall decals on Pinterest, I knew I had to incorporate sprinkles into our oldest daughters room design.

When we lived in Gainesville, Fla. our home had three bedrooms, so when we found out we were pregnant with our youngest daughter we decided the girls would share a room in order to preserve the guest bedroom. The room was large, but we wanted to find a bed with extra storage or a loft to create more space for the girl’s. We looked all over and eventually settled on the IKEA KURA White, Pine Reversible bed.

 

 

We picked this bed for a few reasons: One, if she ended up scared of sleeping in a loft bed it was reversible and could be easily changed to a normal bed. Two, it was under $300.

Since it was new and we wanted the transition to be exciting for Caroline, we made the bed extra cool by adding a pink tent!

The search for the right dresser was also a challenge because of the raw wood on the loft bed but we settled with an IKEA dresser with the plan of maybe painting it or changing out the knobs but once we got it in the room it was a perfect fit as is. We used two IKEA mirrors as a vanity over her dresser. They were originally in our room but ended up being perfect for Caroline’s new room. Next, to her dresser, we created a gallery wall with all kinds of fun things!

Of course, she needed a unicorn for her wall, we found the cutest one at Hobby Lobby and used a few pieces that were in her old room. I ordered a watercolor donut print to tie in with the sprinkle theme. A few years back I made her a holder for her bows and other hair accessories with yarn and an old rocking chair spool.

 

 

The room would not be the Sprinkle Room without the sprinkle wall! We found the decals on Amazon and they were a great deal ($12.73). My husband installed them and it was way easier than we anticipated. We painted all the other walls a soft pink per Caroline’s request and left the sprinkle wall white. On the sprinkle wall sits a fun little reading nook and bookcase.  This can also be found on Amazon for just $79.33!

To finish off her room we wanted to create space where she could play in her bedroom but not take up too much real estate. We found an awesome wall mounted dollhouse from Ikea and got an adorable cloud light to mount above it. We ordered furniture for it off Amazon that matched her room and she LOVES it.

The light makes a great night light for her as well as looks cool over the house.

The Sprinkle Room was the talk of the neighborhood amongst all the little girls when we first moved in and if you asked Caroline what she like most about her new house she would always answer by saying “My Sprinkle Room!” Having little girls is so fun and I love decorating their rooms by bringing imaginative colors and decor. I can’t wait to share Ella Jaye’s room next!

Powder Room Renovation — Stylish and Kid Friendly

For months, I have been hitting up my Pinterest and Instagram feeds for small powder room decorating inspiration. There are so many dream designs out there that can seem intangible to a parent because — well — kids.

I was determined to pick an upscale, trendy look (but not TOO trendy) for our main-floor powder room located right next door to our girls’ playroom. I’ve been admiring wallpaper and wall decals for some time now and knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper or decals into the design, so I started stalking my favorites on Instagram.

Rocky Mountain Decals has the dreamiest wallpaper designs and wall decals. Their IG feed was inspiring so I figured I would take the leap. However, as mentioned this bathroom sits right outside of the playroom, and I needed to make sure wallpaper was the right choice for a bathroom frequented by our children and our tiny neighbors alike.

I reached out to Rocky Mountain Decals asking about how easy it would be to keep their wallpaper clean. With a same-day reply, they informed me it was no problem. The wallpaper is sturdy and can be wiped down with warm water when needed. I was SOLD! my luxurious dreams of being a fancy wallpaper home were about to come to fruition.

After “pinning” all kinds of cactus and succulent themed rooms on Pinterest, I decided on RM’s Cactus print (OH EM GEE). Based on this choice, my husband and I decided to make some vintage looking wood shelves with brushed gold brackets and I got the idea to mount the toilet paper off a small shelf from one of my “pins.” Adding this small shelf in the powder room gave us more design appeal and a place to put some cute décor while providing a place to put our TP.

The shelves turned out great (thanks, hubby) and are a perfect complement to the wallpaper. We replaced the mirror with a more modern antique-gold-trimmed mirror and accessorized the shelves with some custom art and Target cactus candles to complete the look.

The application of the wallpaper was so much easier then I’d imagined. Rocky Mountain makes it easy to apply. They number the paper so you know what lines up with what, and the peel-and-stick design is easy to apply and smooth out. My WONDERFUL neighbor came over to help me apply the wallpaper in the cozy space, and it took us less than two hours.

Wow! I never imagined how amazing it would turn out. One pleasant surprise was that the wallpaper design added depth to the room, making the small powder room seem larger than it actually is. This is by far my favorite room in the house now and I’m on the hunt to find my next “reno” project where I can use more Rocky Mountain Decal designs.
