Winter Wonderland Room Design

Hello Beautiful People!

I have such a fun E-Design for you today from two of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. They have been sourcing this gorgeous Winter Wonderland space that will make you want to A.) Have more babies and have this as the nursery, B.) Redecorate your child’s room, and C.) Pull out all your holiday decor and redecorate your entire house. I might have purchased two of the Mongolian Fur Pillows and a 9ft Christmas tree yesterday after spending hours drooling over this room. Do you think my husband would mind if I put all of Harper’s current nursery decor into storage and started over based on this room? Ok, you’re right, divorced and 9 months pregnant doesn’t look good on me… ;-)

P.S…There may or may not be a giveaway (valued at $150 – woot woot) AND a coupon code to SHOP Arrow House at the end of this post, so be sure to keep scrolling for all the details.

AMANDA |  Founder & Freelance Stylist |  Lily + Spice Interiors

Mommy of two amazing little boys, Amanda has always found herself lost in décor and decorating, from paint colours to wallpaper to show homes for fun on a Sunday afternoon it has been her passion from a very young age. Amanda remembers rearranging her room on a regular just to get that clean and crisp feel, asking her Mom to wash her bedding way more often than it needed to be whilst fluffing her pillows before they had a chance to go flat. Amanda really discovered her love for decorating when she moved into her current home, while waiting patiently to move in she was bustling around measuring, planning and shopping for months on end to find just the right pieces. Her taste and style have come popular within friends and family and she is often found out on the hunt for those in need of a room makeover or the perfect finishing touch. Amanda had a dream of working as an Interior Decorator always, then suddenly stars were aligning and all of the people were right in front of her…..together, at the right time. ‘It was like someone was jumping up and down on a mountain top screaming GO FOR IT’….so she did and hasn’t looked back.

Harper’s Nursery Progress

So I finished taping, and sealing, and painting my accent herringbone wall…and it turned out HORRIBLE! I kid you not, when I started pulling the tape, and the paint started peeling, I nearly cried. I’m in touch-up hell. I should have known it wouldn’t be perfect with my textured walls, but I was really hoping it miraculously would be.

herringbone wall

Cringe! Look at all those jagged lines that I have to fix. :-( (The coloring looks slightly more blue in this photo than in person.)

In other news, I think I’m slowly beginning to nail down some of the other room details (fabric, furniture, art, etc.) Here’s a glimpse at what I’m envisioning so far…Oh, and did I mention we named our little lady?!Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 10.17.08 PM

You’ll have to use a little imagination, but this is the basics. I’ll actually use this art in a thick matted frame, which should help break up some of the herringbone wall. I’m DIY’ing Camryn’s dark wood dresser and updating it with some brass pulls. The fabric for the pillows and custom drapes are from Caitlin Wilson’s Tribeca line, and she is currently running a 15% off coupon with code FREEDOM15.

The gorgeous coral midcentury armchair – SWOON – was a gift from my husband. I’m smitten. :-) We have a big (ugly, but uber comfy) rocking armchair that will be in our master bedroom for late night feedings, so my pink chair is really just for sitting and staring at my beautiful baby when she arrives, and admiring her bedroom that’s prettier than my own. Why is it that our kids always end up with more thoughtfully designed, and nicer looking bedrooms than our own?! W.T.H.

I’ve had questions about how I created the herringbone wall, so for those of you interested (and crazy enough like I was), I will post a tutorial soon.

Whimsical Big Girls Room

My husband and I have been talking about moving Camryn into a big girl bed for a few months now, and I think it’s nearly time we actually made the transition. She currently sleeps in her toddler bed and has done great in it. We never have issues with her getting in and out of bed throughout the night, and she’s never fallen out of bed, so I feel safe moving her into something bigger. We have a full size bed for her, but I need to buy a new headboard and change up her room decor. I want to design a space that she can grow into for awhile, and that can have minor changes made without having to overhaul the entire room.

Here’s what I currently have my eyes on:

To say that I’m in love with this wallpaper would be an understatement. It’s so whimsical, and reminds me of the Secret Garden. It’s the perfect artistic piece for any girls bedroom, and I know my tiny lady would think it’s pretty amazing. I also love having such a big palette of colors to work from, which will make changing small pieces in her room as she gets older really easy.

Here’s what Anthropologie says about the artist, Nathalie Lete:

“French art and designer Nathalie Lete works as a solo artist, creating paintings, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, books and toys centered on themes of fantasy, humor and childhood memories. With this limited edition, grand-scale floral mural, the artist awakens the child-like wonder in all of us, leading one to imagine what it might be like to be minute amid a verdant meadow.”

Camryn’s room is currently painted a light grey, which I’ll repaint in Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee. This color is a beautiful creamy off-white, without any yellow tones.

The photo does this headboard no justice. Here’s a photo of the headboard in a girls room designed by the uber talented Kristen of 6th Street Design School.

There is a large dark wood dresser that I considered painting, but because it’s such an expensive and well made piece, I might leave it. The dark wood might be a nice contrast to the otherwise bright and colorful room. The nightstand needs to take up little space, and not obstruct too much of the beautiful wallpaper…I’ll let you know when I find something.

I want to make Camryn a little desk area and I found these darling industrial chairs thanks to Erin of Candy Kirby Designs. They are exactly what I’ve been looking for.

I also found 2 beautiful rose gold polka dot pillows at HomeGoods. They look exactly like these, but in a rose gold coloring:

Camryn has a huge window seat (with storage – Hooray!) that I want to have a custom cushion made for. I want to pile on a bunch of pretty and comfortable pillows so her and I can lay and read books, watch the sunsets, and look at stars from her window.

I’ll keep updating as I make progress on her room over the next few months. If any of you have good decor suggestions like lighting, a nightstand, bedding, etc. then leave me comments below.

Tomorrow’s Friday, so go grab yourself a coffee and keep on truckin’, because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s also a new Camryn Daily photo up if you haven’t seen it already. We had a little rain yesterday, so we threw on our Hunter Wellies and puddle jumped for a bit. :-)
