Hello friends! Welcome to Piper Jane’s little space (not quite at my self-imposed beginning of October deadline, but that’s just how it goes sometimes, right?)…
Yep, across the outside of her door is the “It’s a Girl” banner that we hung on our door at the hospital (we aren’t gender finder-outers, remember?). Adam asked me a couple weeks ago when we’re going to take it down. My answer, “Not anytime soon.” 🙂
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this on the blog, but I was hoping for a girl when I was pregnant with Piper Jane (I blame that on my house full of girls growing up). I prayed and prayed that God would add a girl to our family. Piper’s room (and her wardrobe, actually) are definitely girly-girly as a result.
I was going for a little bit vintage, a little bit glam vibe, heavy on the ruffles with typography and around-the-world touches here and there. Coral, yellow, and a little aqua are the palette, with lots of neutrals and metallics sprinkled in.
Of course, there are garlands here and there- flags above the name signs, ruffles above the crib, a mini bunting across the Little Miss Priss frame. I love me some garlands.
And since Piper Jane has about a hundred nicknames (“Little Smooch,” “Smooch #2,” “Little Miss Priss,” “Missy Prissy,” “Burke’s Best Girl,” “The Tiny Dancer,” “Dancing Queen,” “Janie,” “Sunshine”), I tried to work as many of them into her space as possible.
A couple of my favorite handmade touches in her room (that I haven’t highlighted already)? The Union Jack pillow and the fabric-backed shelf. And I’d be remiss not to mention how much I ADORE all of etsy-found art in this room. Lo-ove.
My favorite sight? Peaking into her room to see the Little Smooch and her Bubba reading, building, sharing (and, of course, mess making) in her little bit girly, little bit vintage, little bit glam, oh so cozy space!
ps- Of course, there’s a list of projects I didn’t ever get to- one of them I need your help with. I planned to paint (or stencil?) the rug, but I couldn’t ever figure out what would look good! So it’s still plain ol’ white. Any thoughts? Floral? Chevron? Stripes? Yellow? Aqua? I’d love some input, friends!
