the day i saw Gemma attempting the one-leg-over-the-edge escape from her crib during nap time was the day i began dreaming up her big girl room. JJ fell out of his crib and broke his arm when he was 2, and i realllllly didn't want that to happen to Miss G.
Gemma and the baby are going to share a room, so we had to be very careful about picking and choosing any new furniture. it's a tiny room, so everything had to fit perfectly like a little game of Tetris. i knew i didn't want a toddler bed for G, i wanted to go straight for a twin that was classic and beautiful--something she could keep forever. i instantly fell in love with all the frames from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child but c'mon...the ridiculous price points. like, no. i'm not a real queen, i can't afford those beds! luckily for us there's a RH outlet about an hour from our house and lo and behold we struck GOLD! this bed was missing the frame part, but a simple kit from a mattress store fixed it in a jiffy and we ended up scoring this Restoration Hardware bed at an Ikea price.
i wanted Gemma's room to be soft and girlie while also being sophisticated and pretty. but since there's a 50% chance JF2 will be a boy, i chose a color scheme that could easily allow for some masculinity if needed (for now, we are keeping the vintage Barbie prints and flowers over the crib. just in case there's a girl in there).
the room turned out just how i envisioned it! i love love love it! it's a room i would want to sleep in!
once again, my lovely friend Sandi took these pictures. and she always catches our daughters having sweet friend moments :)
