Thanks for your sweet comments on yesterday’s twirling dress…I’m already looking for an excuse to wear it again. Think it’s too much for taco night?! 😉
The progress in Little Miss’s Room has been slow and steady…pretty much like the rest of the house…but I’m determined to finish her sweet space this Summer. Or at the very least, the homework/creative zone. She’s entering her final year of elementary school #insertuglycry so it’s time she had a dedicated spot that allows her to focus on her work…but also be a special area to cultivate her creativity.
The original room plans called for the desk to be in her room, but Santa had other plans when he brought the world’s largest Barbie house this past Christmas. It now occupies the only free wall space in her room, so we’ve decided to utilize the little zone just outside her room for now.
The little nook has actually already undergone a mini-makeover of it’s own…here it is on closing day with yellow walls, and honey oak railings.
And again on moving day, after a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams ‘Repose Gray.’
I partnered with Target’s new kids decor line, PillowFort, to design the colorful space. The products are stylish, fun, and extremely affordable…and we are cuckoo for virtually every piece! I love the whimsical prints and fresh color palette, and it’s chic enough to fit seamlessly with the rest of the home. I think it will also easily transition as she grows, too.
This is what we’ve got in mind right now, but she’s hoping the teepee finds it’s way in the mix, too.

I’m hoping this whimsical space will encourage her creative streak, but also take some of the dread out of homework! We’ve been working on it together for the past few weeks, so fingers-crossed we’ll be sharing it soon. Do your kids have a dedicated homework/creative area? Any tips for things we should include to make the space more appealing to her?
