A special place

As soon as we found out that baby # 4 was a boy, I knew I had to make our only daughter’s room something special. We were in the process of making a bedroom out of our bonus room – forming the “teen cave” {I will dedicate a separate post to his cool hangout} and were tossing the idea around of switching rooms for Madeleine & Wyatt.

Madeleine has begged for a bunk bed for years, and now I wanted her to have one for Wyatt to sleep with her occasionally so we would have a spare room when my mother in law came to visit. Her current room wasn’t big enough for the twin-over-full size I wanted for her, so we decided to move her into Jason’s old room as it is the biggest of the bedrooms. The transformation from a dark, blue room to this was AMAZING! Her room is easily my favorite in the whole house!

Perhaps my favorite spot in our entire house is the hanging swing in Madeleine’s room. This took a LOT of convincing to the hubs that we could make it work! So far, it has not fallen from the ceiling šŸ™‚ The swing is incredibly comfy (especially stuffed with these cute pillows also from Target!) and fun. It is also Oliver’s favorite spot! Whenever he is fussy, I go swing in her room and he instantly becomes happy!

Chair was so reasonably priced from Pier1
Pillows are all from Target of course!

I love all the details on her bookshelf {also from the Ava Regency collection from Pottery Barn Kids}. Also, what Southern girl doesn’t have monograms all over her room?! Madeleine loves collecting little things so these baskets from AtHome hide all her random American Girl doll items, LOL dolls, Shopkins, etc.

Notice that gorgeous rose painting? That is an original piece from the high school collection of Thad Walton…aka Madeleine’s dad (and my fabulous husband!). I think it is so special to have a piece of his artwork displayed in her room.

This beautiful flush mount chandelier is also from Pottery Barn Kids and truly transforms the room. This room had a dark ceiling fan and along with the wallpaper, are the two most impactful changes we made! I had been eyeing the “Rissa Chandelier” for months but it was just too big for the ceiling height. One day while perusing the PBK website, I noticed they added a flush mount version and I immediately bought it! It was like PBK read my mind!

Now, let’s talk about this amazing wallpaper. Who hasn’t pinned the Project Nursery Jolie wallpaper? My dear friend, Allison, from The Paper House Collection made all my dreams come true with this much more affordable version! The wall paper cost me less than $250, so the biggest expense was the labor to prime and paint the walls and install the wall paper. If you are handy at painting, you could achieve this look including wall paper installation for around $500!!

Madeleine loved twirling in her dress from Amazon… it was less than $15!
