I have two daughters, ages seven and one-and-a-half. My older daughter is the biggest girly girl and loves anything pink, gold and frilly. This was difficult for me to come to terms with, because although I like to dress very feminine, my style of interior design is definitely more on the masculine side.
When we were renovating our 130-year-old, fixer-upper this past winter, I was determined to give Serafina the room of her dreams, while at the same time making sure it was something she could grow into AND I wouldn’t get sick of looking at after a couple of months. Muted pinky nude tones and a more mature floral pattern were the perfect “compromise” in this space, and we both couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Make It Extra Dreamy With A Canopy Bed
I found this amazing Cole House platform bed on Restoration Hardware Baby & Child. Honestly it was worth every penny. Serafina has some anxiety issues and has always had a harder time sleeping on her own. She feels so safe and secure in this tent bed, I’d buy it a million times over! Amazon has some more affordable options here. And you can purchase the Cole Tassel Voile Canopy from RH separately. Pottery Barn also has a similar version of the bed here.
The Cotton Luster Velvet Curtains are from west elm, and I absolutely love them! The white sheers are from Target, and the double white curtain rods and finials are from Bed Bath and Beyond… all of which were super-cheap.
Don’t Forget A Fun, Good Quality Area Rug
I have had this Safavieh Poppy Rug since Serafina was two. It’s so beautiful and such great quality, I will keep it until it’s completely worn down. Fortunately, they still sell it on multiple sites, so when I need to replace it I can. They also have some beautiful variations like these two below:
A Gorgeous Light Fixture Goes A Long Way
Funny enough, I had ordered this Grace Flower Chandelier from Pottery Barn over a year ago, before we even purchased our current home, and I had intentions of installing it in our old house. Needless to say, it sat in the box for about five months, and then moved it to the new house with us. I couldn’t love it more! I put these ceiling medallions in pretty much every room of the house because I think they add a beautiful architectural element and really work with the style of our old home. You can find some beautiful ones like this on Home Depot’s website.
