Addison’s Colorful Girls Room Decor


People say you are never finished decorating a space and now I firmly believe that. I have come to realize that you merely get to a point where you are satisfied with the necessities and will often switch things around as the seasons change or as the mood moves you.

I wanted the space to be a colorful big girls room that she can continue to grow into.

I’ve finally reached that place of semi peace with Addison’s room. She has all of the basics: a bed, curtains, wall hangings, bedding and storage. I’m still looking to add a decorative storage bench to the bottom of her bed for toy storage and have plans in the next few months to make a gallery wall of all of her artwork on the wall across from her bed. Her closet needs to be redesigned as well, but I can put those things on the back burner for now and move my efforts onto getting my son’s room together.

Here are some updated shots of the changes I’ve made to her room.

Found this cute hanging sign at Hobby Lobby. With my 40% coupon I was able to snag it for a little over $3

I made that hanging wreath with nearly 1800 gold thumbtacks. Tutorial coming later in the week. Everything else came from Hobby Lobby.

This footstool was my Mother’s. I try to incorporate her pieces as often as possible into our home. A great way to remember her.

Implementing effective storage hasn’t been going to well. I’m looking forward to finding something that will keep her toys hidden for the most part. For now these little baskets work….5% of the time.

    Love her room! We just cleaned out my daughter’s room and now need to pick paint. She’s outgrown the pink and is ready for a change. We’ve also decided to paint our bedroom – think we are going gray, cannot wait!

    I love all of the small details and art! My grandmother has a similar step stool and I though of her when i saw it! What a great way to remember her. I think I will incorporate my own grandmothers step stool into my home decor.

    I adore her room, I’m the same way about my daughter’s room. I’m always looking for something else. This bed spread you have in Addison’s room would be perfect for her room. I’m loving it.

    Lovely! The wrought iron bed, the wooden step stool and the tag are my favorites! I have been on the search (Craigslist, yard sales and antique stores) for either an iron or a Jenny Lind bed for my daughter. Thank you for the inspiration! Now I need to figure out how to transition from nursery to a big girl’s room.

    Ohhh Mimi, I love this room! Does Addison need a roomie? You have such a good eye. All of the accessories really come together (where did you get the arrow? So cute!), and it’s sophisticated without being too grown up for a young girl. Will you come decorate my bedroom next?

    I’m in love with her room!! I need to re do my living room( new pillows, picture shelf, and some decorative vases) maybe I will get to fairly soon. We don’t have a Hobby Lobby here in my parts, thinking I need to do a search and go on a road trip!

    Beautifully done. The room looks so light and airy. I need to re-do my kids’ room soon. I prefer toys out of sight out of mind too but we also use baskets for now. The baskets and a small bookshelf.

    I am doing my daughter’s room in a ballerina theme. We just have to get started. Her window treatments were my first sewing project. I have IKEA, Home Goods, and Home Depot on the list for my go to places. Her babysitter does quilts so she is going to make a quilt with her name and a Black Ballerina. I’m excited to get started and compare the before and after pics. We have a lot of pictures from her last recital so I think the plan is to take the pictures and make posters so we can cover the walls. My fingers are crossed that it all comes together in time for Back to School or shortly afterwards.

      I just ordered a sewing machine, as in I am stalking the tracking number! I want to sew her some bed pillows first. Those are going to be your favorite places, I didn’t spend a ton of money doing this room and I am now working on my son’s room. My daughter just started ballet so I was thinking of incorporating a small bar for her. Not sure where it is going yet but I thought that would be a great addition.

    Yes, it will be exciting to see the transformation. I found an idea on Pinterest
    on how to do a barre by using a dowel at Home Depot. I was thinking of a
    Hip Hop theme for my son. He’s the picky teen so this is on hold. I love
    decor on a dime!!!! Love your site will definitely visit on a regular 🙂
