Little Spaces: Chic Parisian Nursery

I really wanted to create a room for my daughter Milla that was ultra feminine and girly while being chic at the same time.  Since my husband proposed to me years ago on top of the Eiffel Tower, a Paris nursery is special to our family!  I wanted Milla’s nursery to remind us of all our Parisian memories and transport us back to France.  I think with little girls’ rooms it is so easy to go overboard with frills and pink.  I wanted to make sure that I stayed with simple lines and used mainly white and warm grays to keep the nursery sophisticated.  As it is a children’s room I didn’t want the décor of the space to fight with all the bright colors of the books and toys that will eventually fill the whole room.

The gray Stokke Sleepi crib is a hand me down from my son and was such a great investment.  I went with the soft gray color since is such a great neutral shade and really works well with so many decors.  The Andalusia rug from West Elm ties the room together really well and hides the carpet that we inherited that I’m not crazy about.  Luckily I painted the room a pretty taupe-gray when we moved into the house (the room used to be a guest room) and is perfect for the nursery.  My amazing friend made Milla a personalized print to go with the room and I painted little watercolor paintings of the Eiffel Tower and some British icons to match.

I wanted to make sure that the room would grow with her into her teenage years and not be too childish.  I love that the room is so soft and calming and really the perfect space for a girl to be a girl.  Milla’s nursery is definitely my favorite room in our house!

Disney Paint by Glidden Reveal Party! #disneypaintmoms

Mia and I had a great time as a Mother-Daughter team planning and decorating her new pink room! I cannot tell you how much I love the color of pink we chose from Disney Paint by Glidden. Every time I walk my her room, I smile. It is a perfect light pink that will grow with her over the next 5-10 years. We were both excited to plan her PJ preview party and we thought a Tangled theme would be perfect. Mia gathered some of her closest girlfriends for a fun afternoon of  pink food, Barbie playing and of course princess fun! Tangled Party I am to have our wonderful party contributor, Natalie, as my neighbor! She graciously let me borrow her Tangled party supplies. The Tangled cookies were made by Sandy of Firefly Confections. If you are looking for awesome cookies, Sandy is your girl! The girls were afraid to eat the cookies because they were so pretty! I headed to Walmart to buy supplies for the party. The girls enjoyed pink popcorn, strawberry yogurt, springtime donuts and pink lemonade.

Princess Party

Mia has expressed for at least the last 10 months that she was ready for a change from the pale yellow room that she has had since she was a baby. She went with me a few weeks ago to Walmart to pick out the perfect shade of pink. She chose Air Kisses from Disney Paint by Glidden.

 Mia couldn't wait to reveal her new room to all of her friends! They all loved the pink paint especially the All That Glitters paint finish that we used on an accent wall. It was fun watching the girls check out the details of Mia's room.

Disney Paint by Glidden  Mia really enjoyed picking out little details for her room. She loved picking out new photos to be displayed on her bookshelf.

I Am A Princess Printable

The girls all loved reading the custom I Am A Princess artwork that Kristin created for Mia. Kristin was inspired by the I Am A Princess video for the artwork.  We will have a free I Am A Princess artwork printable next week for you!

The butterflies were purchased on Etsy from Magical Whimsy. The Pastel Striped bedding, drapes and mirror are all from Land Of Nod.

Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler & Shopcade

I have been a big fan of Johnathan Adler for years.  When I found out that his new line Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler is now at JCPenney I was thrilled! Of course, I immediately started planning how I can incorporate some of his fun pieces into our house. We have lived in our home for almost 7 years and while I love how it is decorated, it could definitely use some sprucing up. The Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler line is modern, stylish, fun and affordable! The colorful pillows would be perfect for a summer update to any couch or bed! One of these fun candles would be a perfect hostess or teacher gift, too.
