31 Days|Day 25 The Girls’ Room

by Edie Wadsworth on October 25, 2011

For any of you new to my blog, welcome!  I hope you enjoy your visit! I’m joining Kelly’s ‘Show us Your Kids’ Rooms’ party!

After our house fire in 2010, we decided to rebuild our dream cottage.  We’re still putting the finishing touches on it but we have designed and decorated it with hospitality in mind.  Our entire lower level is dedicated to guests with 3 guest rooms, an apartment style kitchen and its own living room.

My two favorite rooms in the house are the kitchen and the workroom but I sure do love my girls’ room too.  They are 9 and 11 and share a room on the 2nd floor.

Their room was the first room Darlene and I worked on together and let’s face it:  girls’ rooms are so much fun to decorate!  It has come together beautifully and very close to the design board.

Come on in and take the tour!


I started with these beds from Layla Grace and we developed the room around them.
These beds were supposed to be dark mocha brown but when they finally got here from California, they were antique brass.  I loved them so much that I didn’t even bother to try and correct the error.   Plus, we needed spots for nieces and nephews to sleep in the rental house that weekend.   I’m glad I kept them.

I made the right decision, right?  Okay, yes, I think so too.

Oh and here’s the design board so you can compare!

Then, there’s the most wonderful dresser in the world (Darlene’s find) and I threatened the girls that I was gonna keep it in the living room but they were already attached to it.

It’s most definitely a splurge piece but it’s so very unique and wonderful.   Darlene is responsible for this little nook that was built just for this piece.  She sent me an email to ask if the framers had already framed this out and we were able to make a few changes so that on the wall opposite the beds, this nook is central and the girls’ closets flank each side.  It’s perfection!

A few more angles……..

And the bathroom…..

The dressing vanity……..

And my personal favorite, the antique picture of the ‘Angel on the bridge’ that shows an angel ushering two little ones to safety. That is my Caiti, rescuing her sister the morning of the fire. Steve’s mom had this hanging in her house and sent it to me. It’s our guardian angel :)

Wanna continue the house tour?  Visit the kitchen, the workroom, the master, the girls’ room, the living room and the guest room.

Gorgeous! I love your new home. It’s lovely! I’m about to tackle my girls’ new room. The challenge…they are 7 years apart. The oldest is 9, and the youngest is 2. I pray it will work. I can’t wait to create a pretty and fun space for them, and replace the baby bed in my room with a chair for reading. Any ideas?
Blessings,
Christy

The antique brass is oh so nice,,,glad you went with it,,,and I’m coveting the fact that your girls bedroom is large enough to pull the twins away from the wall on the sides,,makes changing sheets so much easier,,,see how blessed you are : )

I absolutely LOVE this room!  I love the wall color so much I ran up to my Benjamin Moore store and asked for a swatch of Sea Salt.  She proceeded to tell me that color hasn’t been released yet and won’t for another month????   Maybe things are slower down here in Texas??  ha!

Do you happen to know how you were able to get that color already?!…I need it in my girl’s room, too!  :)

Hi Edie,
Please share the color of the bathroom cabinets/vanity in your girls bathroom! It looks great!!!
I have enjoyed your blog. My husband and I bought an older home a year ago and have renovated the kitchen as well as made other changes. We used sea salt in several rooms and had our new kitchen cabinets painted in sea salt. When I found your blog I was so surprised to see a kitchen very similar to mine. It was so comforting since I was still in the process and a little concerned about my colors! I love my new kitchen and yours as well!!! I love using reds and other bright colors with the sea salt.
