bright girl room

Lenya sent me photos of the sweet room she put together for her little Matilda, and I had to share all the colorful goodness!   I love this happy rainbow palette, and all the thoughtful touches that make it feel sweet but not overdone.  She made the “you are my sunshine” banner because it was her Nana’s favorite song, and she continued to hum it even after she lost the ability to speak after a stroke.  So sweet, right?

That cute circus bear can be found here (love it in the pink frame!), the crib sheet here, and the really awesome changing pad here.

She used Look Sugar polka dot decals for the walls, which is such a great way to add personality to a room if you aren’t able to/don’t want to paint.  The crib is the gray Ikea Sundivik and the changing table is also from Ikea, and she picked up that vintage wicker chair for $35, so she did a fantastic job of adding lots of personality without lots of cost.

I love that sweet pink rug.  The room has carpet, but she layered a rug on top, which really anchors the room and lightens it up (so don’t be afraid to try that if you have carpet but want the pattern and color a rug can add!).

Thanks so much, Lenya, for sharing your sweet little girl’s space with us!  Lenya blogs at Raising Miss Matilda where she writes about life with her little one in California after moving from Australia – quite a change, I am sure!  Check out her post on Matilda’s nursery for more details about the adorable room.

    I love a bright cheerful nursery! This one’s full of character and yet not overdone, gives baby room to grow I think 🙂
