Room Reveal – Ada’s Toddler Bedroom

Toddler Girl Bedroom
If you read my Small Office Planning post, you’ll know that we’ve been wanting to move Ada into the bigger bedroom for quite a while now; we live in one of those typical British three bedroom semis, with two reasonably sized bedrooms and a tiny “box room”. She had enough room for her bed, some drawers and most of her toys, but a few things she could never use because she didn’t have the space. In the summer the front of the house is really noisy with all the kids playing out too, which disrupted her sleep so disrupting my sleep, so as soon as it was optional for her to move, we did. It did mean saying goodbye to my office, which I am a little sad about, but I definitely think this is worth it.
Ada’s first bedroom (which you can have a little peek at here!) was a typical girls nursery; baby pink walls, lots of bright colours and babyish accessories everywhere. I wanted something a little more mature that she can grow into, but at the same time not a room that looks as though it belongs to a teenager. It took me a while to find some wallpaper I loved, but as soon as I saw this beautiful one from Next, my heart was set on it. After having a quick brainstorm I thought it’d all come together quite well with most of what we had.. So without further ado, here it is!

As I said, the wallpaper is Twilight Garden Wallpaper from Next, which is probably the most beautiful wallpaper I’ve ever bought. It was £18 a roll so not the cheapest (but also not the most expensive!), but so so worth it. I’m loving dark navy walls at the moment, and the pretty floral design was perfect for making sure the room was appropriate for Ada. We needed three rolls for two walls, and had a bit left over that I might use to cover a little box for her.
I thought the wallpaper would work well with medium wood tones, rattan, white and light pink, and sheepskin. Things like the sheepskin rug is vintage, which she already had, and I picked up the little rattan chair from Bygone Times recently (for £12!) The teepee was a 1st birthday present off her Godmothers, something that sat unused in my bedroom until we moved her in – since it’s actually been out she’s constantly crawling in to read her books. A couple other new things we bought were a round jute rug from Ebay, La Redoute basket, and a clothes rail from Argos.
I was very kindly gifted a few items from the wonderful brand Cox & Cox; the love wire light has attracted a lot of admiration already, and it’s such a good price – I love it attached to the wall, but it can easily be propped up on a shelf or furniture instead. I also love the brass hanging frame, I popped a little card inside that I ordered from Etsy for a couple pounds. I keep seeing hanging round mirrors everywhere at the moment, so couldn’t resist the black cruise mirror, and also got a concrete dipped vase to keep some little faux flowers in. Thank you, Cox & Cox, for helping me complete my little girls room with such beautiful items!
I absolutely love how it’s all come together, I keep finding myself just popping in to have a little look around at a few times throughout the day! What do you think of what we’ve done with the space?
