Posey’s New Room

Well, I’ve done it again.  I’ve redone another room in our house.  When we first moved into our house, we pretty much remodeled the entire thing, and I was in a daring mood.  I tried all the colors that I’d always been afraid to try.  2 months into it, and I was itching to repaint.  You can see Posey’s original PINK room here.  Don’t get me wrong, it was really cute, but it was just too much.  I got to where I didn’t even want to go in there because it gave me a pink headache!

Before I redid this room, I gave it some time.  I wanted it to be right, so I waiting until I found the perfect inspiration piece before I began.  When I came across these 2 sweet antique little girl beds from the 1920’s, I knew it was meant to be.  I’d been thinking about moving the girls into one room anyway….you know, just in case we need our 3rd room for another baby someday 🙂  I decided to cover her walls in wood. Our house is on pier and beam, so we have issues with sheet rock wanting to crack due to our house shifting with the season, so this was the perfect solution.  We painted it all white, and it’s absolutely divine.  It’s my new favorite room in the house!

It’s still not completely finished, but those final touches will come naturally as I find the right things to add to the white walls…don’t want to rush things!

Here is a list of things in the room:

Paint: Sherwin Williams, “Crushed Ice”
Beds: Sorry, you won’t find these anywhere!  They are antiques from the 1920’s!
Yellow Rug: The Land of Nod 
Bubble Gum Lamps: The Land of Nod
White Quilts: Pottery Barn
Moth Identification Chart Print
Beetle Identification Chart Print
String Lights 
Pillows: Caitlin Wilson Textiles
Book Ledges: We made them!

  1. Lovely room! Did you add the horizontal paneling on the walls or were they like that? I love it!

    Beautiful! Did you just print out the moth and beetle prints? I didn’t see anywhere to purchase them on the links. Love the pillows. Great idea to use blue on one bed and pink on the other!

    Posey’s new room makes me just want to take a deep breath and then a loooooooong exhale. It’s so refreshing and soothing. I just had to look back at the old room and yes, now I see why the remodel is so soft (and yes, no harm intended to the pink room, I have more than my share of vibrant walls that will soon be white). Beautiful remodel, the pillows are to die for, I would love to have this space for my little girls.

    I love it! I have also been re-doing our rooms since Camille arrived and we had to switch everything up. Every room that I have redone I have desaturated the walls, I think I have gotten in my white mood. Loving plain walls with splashes of color in the decor. Camille’s room has variations of purple and Isaac’s is orange and Eli’s blue.

  12. Love the colors and details of the pillows, frame and bed. There’s a nostalgic feel with the interior design of the kids room. Lovely touch!

    Hi Kelly! I love this room. I am in a similar mood to strip the color of my kids room and let the details do the talking. Do you mind sharing how you made the book shelves?
