Phase One of my daughter’s big girl room is complete and, uh, can you tell that she loves it?! The Ralph Lauren “Matilda” Ribbon Trellis wallpaper is simply charming, as well as meets my daughter’s request for a “pink princess room” (without making me hurl). The addition of a plush ivory rug, some throw pillows in soft pink linen and a lovely green and pink watercolor print will add some sophistication to the otherwise-girly look.
Phase Two will involve the creation of a reading corner (inspired by the one at her Reggio Emilia preschool) and my very first attempt at an Ikea Hack to turn a personality-free Ikea Tarva dresser into a glossy pale pink campaign-style piece. It remains to be seen whether I have the DIY chops to pull it off, but in the meantime, my princess seems perfectly delighted with her abode so far.
