It can always be a little tricky to transition your little one from their nursery into their big kid room, however, Dina with Honey & Fitz did it flawlessly! We absolutely adore Dina’s work and blog and are beyond delighted to have her sharing this darling room she did for sweet little peanut Brooke.
This room was the first decorated in this family’s new home. The family saw the move as an opportunity to transition their daughter Brooke out of her crib and purchase some proper big girl furniture that would stay with her for many years. The home had just been painted so we decided to work with the existing wall hue and add color elsewhere. I love painting ceilings – I suggest it all the time. Sometimes I’m met with resistance but any client who’s ever trusted me and gone for it absolutely loves the result and gets hooked on the look! I thought a fun, coraly pink would be perfect to offset the gray walls so Brooke’s “pink sky” as she calls it, was born! The remainder of the room’s inspiration and color palette I pulled from bay gorgeous fabric I ended up using on the custom headboard. It has so many great colors – pink, green, teal, even some purple and the overscale pattern keeps it from feeling too serious. Brooke has 2 large closets in this room and I always like to try and keep as much open floor space for play as possible in kids rooms. I suggested we take the doors off one of the closets and move her dresser into it. It was previously her changing table and it was dark espresso wood but the dimensions were PERFECT for the closet nook so we painted it a glossy white and changed the knobs. We painted the back wall of this closet the same color as the ceiling and outfitted it like a little vanity with a pretty mirror and a grouping of these fabulous vintage brass butterflies. This really opened up a whole wall in the room so I brought in a play teepee and a little table and some poufs. It makes for a great play area for pretend play, art or an impromptu tea party!
