My New House: Emma’s Room Design Plan

SOURCES: wallpaper // crib // crib & roman check fabric fabric // crib/roman shade fabric alternate stripe // pillows (similar) // glider // monogram pillow // rug // abstract art // small landscapes // changer // etagere // floor lamp // crib skirt & bumper // sheets // baskets // rocking sheep // mirror

As you know, I finished Emma’s nursery in our old house like 5 minutes ago. And I thought I’d just recreate it in this house (the only issue being that her room can’t have drapes – only roman shades – because it’s on the third floor and has window seats under the windows – which are adorable). I could cut up my insanely expensive Hollyhock curtains and make romans, but I really like them as they are, so I decided to use them in the guest room, which I painted F&B Lulworth Blue to coordinate. Her rug will go in there as well, and the rattan ottoman (with matching chair now…).

So it’s a fresh start for Emma. And I know I said I was probably going to do pink, and I tried, I pulled every pink wallpaper I saw that struck my fancy. But I kept coming back to Colefax & Fowler’s Bowood. I know, it’s been DONE and then DONE some more. But I just LOVE it for her, and this room – with its lower ceilings and angles. Something about it just felt right. So I decided to not fight it, and go for it. Although I am doing a newer colorway (the original has a very creamy/beige ground paper with violet accents. I do not like purple much, so I chose this new colorway with a white ground and pale blue highlights). So off we go! I am going to reupholster her crib panels and use the Pierre Frey fabric on it now for pillows elsewhere in the house. The glider is the same, as is the changer, but I’m going to use one of my own Momeni rugs and add in some rattan accents through the etagere and mirror.

A reminder that this is the room:

It’s gonna be so cute :)

Emma and Henry will have their own level, which is so nice as they get older. I’m still kinda stuck on Henry’s room – but he LOVES it even in its unfinished, unstyled state, so I really can’t lose! :)
