Ella’s Big Girl Room Inspiration

Ella’s big girl room transformation is stemming from her original nursery design found here.

I am sticking with the same colors (Pale pink & Sprout Green) & bedding since they are simply adorable for a little girl. Her duvet and sham is from the Caroline Collection and her sheet set is the Shell Trellis, both from Serena & Lily.

I am looking forward to moving her bed into her room as soon as we feel she is ready. She still seems to be loving her crib, so we’ll see when the transition happens.  Ella’s big girl bed is from Pottery Barn Kids. We went with the Raleigh Upholstered Camelback headboard in white twill with pewter nailheads.


Since we love the stability of her current dresser, which will soon become her sister’s, we are going with the Kendall Extra Wide dresser in Simply White and I will use the same clear gemstone knobs from Anthropologie that are on her current dresser. I love the simplicity of white furniture with her bedding.


Her room already has the Classic shelf from Pottery Barn Kids, where we display a large framed picture, a custom rose bouquet & a vintage book. Her current mirror will be moving to her sister’s room, so I found an adorable white mirror to replace it.

Shelf and MirrorHer big girl room wouldn’t be complete without a teepee! I’ve always wanted a little fort for her to play and read in. She absolutely loves books, so I picture her sitting in her little teepee all the time. I will fill it with pillows and blankets to make it a cozy little spot.  I needed something on the smaller side, so I am having an inexpensive custom white canvas teepee made from an Etsy shop. To add a little color, I plan to wrap the top with a felt pom pom ball garland in pinks and white.

TeepeeI still haven’t had the time or energy to tackle the stencil wall, but I plan on doing something very soon. We used the Large Rabat Stencil in her nursery at our previous home. It is a lot of work, but well worth it in the end. I’m thinking this time, we will do a pink ombre wall using three different shades of pink and blend them together to create a gradual change in color.
