Room(s) for Two

I’m pretty sure I promised pictures of Hannah Claire’s big girl room, so here are a few:

The inspiration for the feel and colors all started with a mirror we found during a shopping trip while in St. Simons. Note to anyone thinking about redecorating a room: re-doing a room around an accent piece is a big old pain in the tush! Finding bedding and a wall color took more time and effort than we’d counted on, but it came together well. Ryan and our brother-in-law, Jonathan, put up the woodwork and then Ryan and I painted everything. Gigi and Baba helped pick out the awesome new bedding (that I intend to send her to college with!) and Gracie helped sew all the fun bed pillows and the valence for her windows. Hannah Claire adores her new space and still, six months after ‘moving in’, invites anyone that walks through our door to come see her cool new room!

Caroline (Yeah, she’s here. Has been for months, but that’s a whole other post) has successfully taken over the nursery. For those who weren’t around when Hannah Claire was born, here a few pictures of the mural Gigi painted over three years ago. How awesome is it that two sweet girls have gotten to use this special room?
