Recently, we made some improvements to really finish up our daughter’s room. To get an idea of the before, see here, here and even here when it was originally our kids’ shared room. The room had a lot going for it already: generous size, lots of windows, best light, not to mention the biggest closet. The pink wasn’t my idea, rather a requirement for my daughter, but I fell in love with that wall as soon as it was up. However, the carpet was bringing the dingy. Our newly installed hardwood floors have given the space a major face lift! Also helping is a recent swap of all the furniture – with basically the same furniture, only better. The gist remains the same, but man this version is so much better!I found my dream Heywood Wakefield bedroom set a few months ago, the Kohinoor line, and pounced on it. It’s not in the best condition, but condition is comparable to the old Heywood Wakefield set that was in here while the lines are an over the top upgrade. One of the pieces ended up in our dressing room, and the rest of the set – the bed, dresser and vanity – moved in here. How great is that headboard swoop?! I’m sure we’ll get around to refinishing this all one day. More urgently, the vanity needs replacement glass for the table top/shelves…anyone have one and could share the measurements?In other furniture improvements, I just bought that cute little vintage tulip knock off at an estate sale last week, not thinking I had a place for it. But it is so perfect in here as a replacement to the placeholder gold target table we’d been using!More info about the ceiling fan here.The rug is from Rugs USA (Amazon sells it too and they flip flop on lowest price). It’s alright. What I really wanted was a chunky Moroccan shag but that means wool and I really try to avoid wool because: ANIMALS! Why isn’t there a good cruelty free option? This’ll do, though I am second guessing my decision and wondering if bold would be better…like this or this or even this crazy thing that I literally just stumbled upon! This room has a full wall of closets. I’ve waffled for years about adding some detail to their fronts, like large diamonds, but I’m not unhappy enough with them yet to move forward. Inside, this adorable little original closet built in sits. We’re hoping to add some shelves above it for books and stuff.

It feels SO good to check this room off on our shrinking, but still too long house to-do list. It’s a space I’m super proud of and happy being in. On that note, any ideas what should I tell my daughter who recently started asking me to paint her room blue??? For reals. Haha! But also: why?!
Thanks for reading friends! xoxo Jenny
