Lola’s Big Girl Room Tour

Being the second child and born a mere 16 months after her older sister, Lola never technically got her own room. We moved our oldest to a “big girl room” about halfway through my pregnancy and when Lola was born we moved her directly into the existing nursery. Now that she is almost a year and a half we decided it was time to give her a space of her own! I teamed up with some great shops and got to decorating! So here is Lola’s big girl room reveal!

The theme that was decided on was “Whimsical.” I imagined a dreamy place for Lola to relax and play filled with inviting colors and mythical creatures. I quickly focused on mermaids and unicorns and adorned the room in pink and mint. The colors worked so well with each other and the pre-existing wall color left from the nursery. Although Lola is still in her crib at the present moment I wanted to make the feature of this room that beautiful framed house bed we had locally designed and made. Once we transition her to her new bed we will remove the crib and which will open that space up a bit. This big move should be happening over the next few months as my older daughter was transitioned to the same floor style bed around this age (15 months). You can read about her transition here.

The bed itself is a statement piece but what really catches everyone’s eyes right away is the beautiful ‘Moon & Star Cloud Mobile’ by Baby Jives. My main focus for her room was to inspire imagination and promote healthy sleep patterns. The floor bed itself is designed to be easily accessible to her thus making it a spot that is inviting and relaxing but the cloud mobile is the icing on the cake! As she lies there looking up she is sure to be relaxed with it’s gentle spins and twirls. There is nothing more tranquil than that!

At first glance you will notice the complete lack of toys in her room. This is because although she does play in her room, it is more of a place for her to grow her imagination. There is nothing battery operated in this space. Instead everything in her room promotes open-ended play, meaning everything in there is only operated by her imagination! We have a playroom with plenty of the other stuff but the girl’s bedrooms are not the place for them. When it comes time to sleep I want them to focus on their natural body queues and having less of a distraction will help with that. I stocked her room with her favorite books, some cuddly plush friends and a few wooden toys that she loves and that is it. If the house ever gets a bit too hectic or the days become long, I want this space to be hers. Hers to dream, to relax to imagine!

    • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
    • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
    • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
    • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
    • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
