31 Days|Day 25 The Girls’ Room

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.

  3. 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?

  20. Love the room… that is the direction that we are going for our granddaughters room when they are here. It looks so welcoming and something that they will not out grow in a year as Lily is 3 and little Miss Sophie is only a few months. Thank you for sharing this room with everyone.

  22. This is such a fantastic room!  Really, one of the most beautiful girl’s rooms I’ve seen.  Very well done.  I love how closely you followed the mood board.  I’ve featured the room on the Inspiration Files over on A2D today.  Thanks for the inspiration!!  –Kristi

  23. 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!  :)

  24. Love their room!  Where is the chandelier from?  I’m on the hunt for one for our soon-to-be baby girl’s nursery.  Thank you!

  25. Gorgeous! I would really love to know the name of the paint color used on the cabinets and vanity. Please share if you have a moment. Thank you!

  26. Love this room. I have two little girls 4 years and 6 months, and I cant wait until they can have a “big girl” room like this! Best color palette ever!

  27. Did anyone ever find out the paint color used on the cabinets and vanity? I would love to know that paint color! It looks orange or red. Hard to tell in the pictures.

  28. I love the colors in the girls bedroom and bathroom! I was wondering if you could let me know if the Sea Salt color you used was the Sherwin Williams Sea Salt? I have that in my bathroom and it looks similar in color. Also I would love to know if you painted the bathroom cabinet and what color you used. Thanks…

  29. Can you tell me where you got those amazing mirrors above the beds? I absolutely love them!
    Love the whole room, it’s perfect.

  30. Dear Jesus, I love Edie’s style… Make me over, Lord! I have truly been inspired by your wonderful taste in decorating and all things GOR-JUS!

  31. Love the colors and absolutely everything about the bedroom and bathroom! This is going on MY mood board!! : )

  32. I love your girl’s room! I am in love with the bath cabinet and vanity color…would you mind sharing what that is?

    Thank you so much!

  33. 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.
    Please share the color of the bathroom cabinets/vanity in your girls bathroom! It looks great!!!

  34. I absolutely LOVE this room! It is just beautiful. Where did you find the bedskirts? I love how they tie in with the rug. Thank you for your inspiration and for sharing your sources with us!

  35. Hi! I just found your blog and your home is gorgeous! May I ask you what color you painted the bathroom cabinets in your girl’s bathroom? I love it. My girl’s bathroom is also painted Sea Salt and I have been trying to figure out what to do with the cabinet. Thanks!!!!

  36. Beautiful room! I think someone already asked, but I would love to know your source for the girls’ bedskirts. Thank you so much.

  37. your home says alot about you ~ beautiful :) i adore the girls room ~ everything ! can i PLEASE ask you where you got those simple, yet amazing little butterfly photos in the girls bathroom ??
    thanks so much for the inspiration!

  38. Hi. Could you provide the color name and brand for the vanity in your girl’s bathroom? It is perfect!

    Thank you!

  39. I have searched your blog and can’t find the cabinet color you used in the girls room. Could you possibly let me know what you used. I apologize if you have written about it. Thank you so much for your time. Your blog has inspired me for years. I’ve read you since you started and I’m so proud of all you’ve accomplished!
    God bless, Erin McCall

  40. This is a very delicate and beautifully chosen colors. I also have a daughter. Girls have so many clothes! Where are it placed? I do not see the wardrobe…

  41. You are a designing genius!!! Loving everything you’ve done, and your take on marble was the best (most honest) I’ve seen! Plus, your girls’ room and bath is ah-may-zing!!! What is that beautiful color on the bathroom cabinet? I’ll be a loyal follower from now on!! Can’t wait to see your next posting!! :)

  42. I am loving the girls bathroom vanity color!!! Do you happen to know the exact color?! This is all so amazing!!!

  43. Hello there, I think your web site could possibly be having
    web browser compatibility problems. When I look at
    your website in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, wonderful website!

  44. My spouse and I stumbled over here different web page and
    thought I might check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.
    Look forward to looking into your web page repeatedly.

  45. I noticed in some pictures you have a bed skirt and I was wanting to know more about the print. Is it black or brown? If you know the name of the fabric could you pass it along?

  46. This is really interesting, You’re a very
    skilled blogger. I have joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your
    fantastic post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks!

  47. Just gorgeous! I have to admit I really struggle with jealousy when I see such beautiful homes/decor. We’re blessed with beautiful kids, a fantastic marriage, and health, but money wise we’ve always struggled. Despite college degrees and professional jobs, there isn’t enough money left over to buy fresh flowers for the table. Sigh.
