The Girls’ Room

The Girls' Room | InanorchardI thought I’d take a moment and resume the house tour I started a few months back.  Up next: the girls’ room!  This first picture is the view from their bedroom door.  You’ll know it’s their room by the half dozen drawings hanging haphazardly on the door, held up by no less than an entire roll of scotch tape.

This is the little shelf we use to store the girls’ toys.  Justin picked it up from Home Depot a few years ago.  I love it but I’m afraid they’re going to be growing out of it soon.

Their room is a bit crowded right now.  Miss P’s crib takes up a lot of space.

This is Miss P’s crib.  She sleeps in the same crib that all my babies have slept in.  She also sleeps under a quilt made by my mom.  And that beautiful crocheted blanket at the foot of her crib, is a labor of love, that was made by my best friend Stephanie for Miss P when she was a newborn.  She loves burrowing under her crocheted blanket every night.  You’d think that a baby who has a mama who loves to sew would have handmade crib bumpers and pillows but alas… it’s rather bare.

I have next to nothing hanging on the walls in the girls’ room.  The closet if full of darling pictures, embroidery samplers, name buntings, and vintage paintings that I’ve been collecting, but I can’t bring myself to hang them yet.  I know that I’m going to completely rearrange their room when Miss P moves out of her crib, and I hate the thought of having to move and rearrange a bunch of wall hangings.

I think that almost every piece of furniture in their room was bought second-hand, or was a hand-me-down from other family members.The Girls' Room | Inanorchard

These are the curtains I hung in the window.  I bought the cheapest sheer curtains from Target and made a garland out of tissue paper flowers.  That sounds a lot more impressive than it is :)  The flowers came from a Martha Stewart kit I bought a few years ago at Micheal’s.

This is the little hand-me-down desk Miss E got from her big brother.  The girl loves to draw!  If there was anything I’d like to change about her room it would be her desk.  I’d love to have a proper art station set up for her but that will have to wait… maybe after the crib is gone.

I love coming in and seeing the remnants of their play.  It never fails to bring a smile to my face.

The Girls' Room | InanorchardI don’t put a lot of thought into what I put in their room.  It’s pretty mix-matched.  I like it to be full of things that fuel their imaginations.  I like it to be soft, feminine, and comfortable.

Thanks for stopping by!  ~April

    such a darling spot~ love that that was your bed as a girl and the quilts from your mama. the curtains w/ the tissue paper flowers is a great idea and that little desk is the sweetest.

    your laid back style and simple elegance always inspire.

    It is what you described, soft, feminine and comfortable. :) Enjoy it while you can still decorate it. My girls now want BLUE and their OWN things hanging on the walls and I cringe sometimes but let it slide. :)

    What a beautiful cozy room! I love all the sentimental things about it, that makes it extra-special. And I also love how you allow it to be a room for THEM – one they want to be in, play in, create in, and know it’s okay. That’s the very best kind. xoxo
