Her Very Own Space

Zoe is the only girl other than me in the house. Her personality is extraordinarily vibrant, and her inclinations have always been very feminine. She loves dressing up, she loves her dolls and pink and butterflies, but she’s also very creative and has begun to start really seeking out spaces of her very own.


We couldn’t wait to design our daughter’s first bedroom. She has been a room with her older brother since she was born, and while she’s been incredibly resourceful in decorating her bed and personal space as girly as she’d like, she is ready for a room to call her very own.

Putting together ideas and design boards for Zoe’s bedroom was not only fun, but it was fairly easy. She loves pink and ballet, dolls and stuffed animals-so much so that there was very little space for her to sleep in her bunk bed. The extra space and storage alone will open up her world considerably.


My mom and I took Zoe to the Pottery Barn Kids store in Palo Alto for the ultimate girls adventure: She was able to hand pick what she wanted for her brand new bedroom. Though she was a bit overwhelmed, her choices of furniture and bedding were exactly what I would have chosen for her, not to mention the very first bedroom set she saw upon walking into the store.


Between myself, my mom and the design specialist at Pottery Barn Kids, we were able to design her bedroom from the ground up. It’s perfect and practical, yet full of whimsy and pretty details that my inner (3)5 year old is completely gaga over. There isn’t too much pink, and the furniture will all grow with her nicely. Quite frankly, I may be caught bunking in there with her from time to time-my own inner 5 year old is just as exited as Zoe is.

The design team at Pottery Barn Kids was knowledgable and helpful, and made the choosing and ordering process a breeze. We can’t wait to finally reveal Zoe’s very own room to her, and watch as it complements her independence and creativity, as well as her very own space as the only girl amongst her brothers.

The final room reveal will be published on Project Nursery. Be sure to stay tuned!

Thank you to Pottery Barn Kids for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

LOVE PBKids. We did our boys room in their Madras print and still love it. You have me thinking it may be time for our little girl’s redo too, since she still has her nursery decor. Can’t wait for the reveal!

I thought I just saw your boys room designed by the Land of Nod?

You are correct! A lucky bunch indeed.

I love your blog but lately it seems like it’s one big commercial for one product or another. I get that promotional posts pay the bills but it’s a little over the top, IMO.

I’m thinking of updating my 5 yr old daughter’s room too & can’t wait to see what you both have designed. I’m especially interested to see toy storage ideas!
