{mini} Buy This, Not That!

Anyone remember these posts?  I have been coveting this duvet from Serena & Lily for some time and just saw a great knock-off for more than $120 less….

LOVE THIS?

P.S. Have you seen all the awesomeness at Land of Nod lately?  I love that most of it is easily translatable to adult living but at kid prices….

The Reveal: Project Big Girl Room

Project Big Girl Room is finally complete (only 10 months later)!  My goal was to transform my 3 year old’s nursery into a “big girl room” that she can she can grow into with minor modifications along the way.  I wanted the room to have a peaceful, tranquil vibe, and an age-appropriate playfulness, while staying away from matchy-matchy themes and overly girly motifs.   

Sooo, drum roll and Ta-Dah:

 

And, I am still pondering the closet-turned-secret room for the closet on the right.

I am thrilled with the way it turned out! 

What I learned from this project:

1. I stuck to the Nate Berkus four color rule, which narrowed down my choices and made my decisions so much easier (lavender, mint green, hot pink and white).
2. I splurged on the items that made the biggest impact (bed skirt, flower pillow, books on the dresser) and saved on the smaller details (rocking chair pillow, tissue box cover, sheets for the bed).
3.  Although it took me 10 months to complete, the long process was part of what made it a success because I organically let the room come together and breathe after each change and addition.

Here is some sourcing information for the new items in the room, but if you want sources on anything not listed, leave a comment and I will gladly email you:

Guest Blog — Buy This, Not That!

Happy Monday, y’all!  I am blog-squatting again today over at one of my fave blogs – My Little Happy Place.  I prepared a “Buy This, Not That” featuring accessories for her 2 year old’s “big girl room”.

Please CLICK HERE to check it out!

As a companion to the post, check out these other great finds that I discovered while putting it together.  I had so much fun!

This feminine and sparkly mirror from Ballard Designs would be perfect in a little girls room hanging over a dresser with a pretty vintage brush and comb set.

I love this neutral, but not at all boring, textured Garden Party Rug from PB Teen.  It would look great just about anywhere.

I *heart* this mirror!  It is from Pottery Barn and on sale right now for $249.99.  Isn’t the curvy shape so sexy and striking?

This irresistibly sweet lamp from the Land of Nod is perfect proportion for a bedside table or a bathroom light.  This would look great in a kitchen or eating nook too.  Adorable!

Bargain alert!  This fun pillow from Pier 1 is a mere $22.  It looks like an artist’s doodles on a newspaper.

I love this darling pillow from — wait for it — Target!  I especially like her swing coat and oversized handbag slung over her shoulder.  Too cute.

Thanks again to Alison from My Little Happy Place for hostessing me for the day!

Tres Chic Nursery

I am loving this new With a Flourish nursery ensemble from Land of Nod:

The crib blanket and crib skirt come in lavender and pink, and are both reversible between the floral and lattice patterns.  The bumper, changing table cover and valance are available in lavender and pink floral.  The crib sheet is available in a sweet, complementary lavender or pink polka dot.

The pieces des resistances are the panels – I adore the lattice panels!  The panels are available in green, lavender, blue and pink floral and lattice.  They look almost look custom, don’t they?  I would also love to use the green or blue lattice panels in another room – like a home office, laundry room or powder room.

Almost makes you want to have a baby just to decorate a nursery….I said ALMOST!

And btw, a similar ensemble also comes in “big girl” sizes with a variety of options and combinations for twin, full and queen beds.

BRAVO, Land of Nod!
