We’ve painted almost the whole inside of the new house, but nothing is really quite done except Rowan’s room. We decided the first room we would finish would be Rowan’s. Poor girl has been all out of whack since the week we started packing. We knew she needed to get into a room that felt like her own quick. I have a post coming about the transition with her and sleep training, but getting the room done and her onto a regular bedtime schedule was much needed.
I am kind of over the moon about this new little room. I didn’t cry over leaving our apartment until I had to go into Rowan’s room and pack it up. I laid in her bed and just looked around her old nursery for a while, thinking of all the memories we had built in there. I am so excited to have created this new space for her. One where we can start fresh and make new memories. I used a lot of stuff from her old room, I did however buy some new pieces from flea markets and the Habitat Restore (oh man I love that place). I also made a few little things for the room.
I knew I wanted white walls, a place for her to draw (we like drawing a lot in our house), a nook for reading, and lots of pops of bright color. I am not a fan of muted, pale or neutral baby/kid rooms. They are beautiful don’t get me wrong, just not for me. I always want our kids rooms to be full of life and well lived. Nothing too matchy, matchy and or perfect.
