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!

    • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
    • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
    • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
    • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
    • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
    • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
