Evie's Big Girl Room {Inspiration Board}

We've been in our house for over 5 months now, and I am just finally getting around to working on Evie's 'big girl' room. 

When we moved in, we put all of the furniture, etc from her nursery into her room, but I didn't hang anything on the walls because I knew I would be redecorating soon and didn't want to bother with the extra holes in the walls. And of course, there was the whole time/motivation factor. Let's just say her room quickly got moved to the back burner.

But now that she's in a big bed AND I have a nursery to plan out and decorate, it's time to get this bad boy on the road! I went back and forth on what color scheme I wanted to use (as seen by some of my random pins to this board), but her walls are a medium/light grey and I knew I wanted to use lots of crisp white. I am what one might call a fabric hoarder, and have picked up various fabrics I thought I might use in her room over the last year (or two!). I've had the pink/white stripe fabric for a long time and always intended to use it to make her an upholstered headboard. Then when I went to hunt down a fun floral or print to bring in more color on the curtain panels and pillows, I almost scrapped it, but luckily it made the cut!

Here's my ghetto inspiration board, thanks to a Picmonkey collage. Mama needs some photo software.

My plan is to pull lots of fun color from the floral (teal, coral, pink, yellow) and temper with tons of white and hits of gold. I've hung some white floating shelves and have plans for some fun and easy DIY art for the walls. I need to track down some pillow fabric and I definitely need to repaint her dresser. I still like the pale blue I originally painted it, but it reads all wrong in her room now, with the grey walls. And I want it to really pop in there. I'm leaning toward a deep teal with new hardware- probably brass or gold! Though I did really like the coral one above, too… we shall see!

So far I have the curtain panels done and hung, and the headboard is 98% done and will hopefully get hung this weekend! The other big thing I need to tackle is her bedding. My plan is to make a white ruffle bedskirt and I'm leaning toward a white duvet cover.

So that's the plan! I will hopefully have some pictures to share of her room soon!
