shared girls' room

I’m working on a project right now that has me so excited.  We’re creating a fun and special room at Nana’s house for the girls and their cousin, and I couldn’t be happier to be collaborating with my favorite, the Land of Nod.  Of course, Nana’s is already fun and special, but I thought this would be a great way to provide inspiration for any other Nana’s out there considering something similar, and Nana raised two boys (my husband and his brother), so the guest room has been a little more boy-focused.  We’re brightening it up a bit and turning into a little girl haven.  We painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Irish Mint (it’s gorgeous!) and adding in lots of fun details, like childhood photos of the boys and plenty of space for book reading and dreaming.

    Darling! Although, the link for the Gold Domino Chairs takes me to the Metalwork Bookcase.

    I have a question, do you have any ideas regarding on displaying art that kids make? I have a 3 year old and hanging her art in the fridge is not looking that nice really and I want to stay away from cork boards because I don’t want my newborn once she is crawling to be finding pins. Thank you

      Hi Veronica! One of my favorite ways to display art is with a string and clothespins. I tack the ends up with finishing nails, and you can add art as you wish with the clothespins. You can see an example here in the first picture – they are strung across the window.
