Emi's Big Girl Room

I officially signed my little girl up for kindergarten last week. It felt so surreal walking into the elementary school and thinking that my oldest would soon be a student there.

Am I old enough to have a kindergartener?

Her birthday is in a few months and will turn a whopping FIVE years old. And her room in our new house is definitely feeling geared to a five-year-old. I'm in love with it. Of course there are still some details I still need to add (cough, a headboard!) but E is happy with it, and that is all that matters.

Want to take a peak?


Every night before bed, E tells me in her "thankful prayers" how much she loves her flowers. 

If you'll recall, the first time I showed you this room, it looked like this:


We painted the walls Silver Lining by Kwal Paint, and added some kid-sized furniture and a giant bed. The bed is E's fave. Oh, and Hello Kitty.


I found this awesome-sauce drawer at a local antique mall and added it to Emi's room as a tiny shelf. She fills it with as many small objects as she can find. 

Her favorites are the Oliblocks and tiny, brass Nate Berkus elephants...and let's be honest, those are my favorites, too.


You can't see the quote in the frame on the nightstand, but it is one of my favorites:

"I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls."
-Audrey Hepburn


My handy husband hung the IKEA Dignitet curtain wire so E could hang her favorite drawings and special school projects.


It is a space that is loved and is (very) lived in. 
Which, in my humble opinion, is what a little kid's room is supposed to be. 

xoxo,

      That deer was actually my grandmas! She bought it when the original Bambi came out on video.

    1. Kayleen- I found those flowers at Target in the home decor section about a year ago. If you find more, send me a box :) I want more for the other side of her room!!
