Wallpaper for Eleanor’s ‘Big Girl’ Room

I am in love with this bedroom for two little girls.


(via Style-ing with Children)

I think we’re going to move Eleanor straight into a regular bed when the time comes, even though those MINNEN toddler beds from IKEA are pretty cute. The wallpaper though? Love.

My dining room is wallpapered in Mibo’s Clackett Lane, but before I decided to go with that pattern I had actually bought several rolls of a vintage design on eBay. I didn’t use it for Eleanor’s nursery (obviously), but I have been planning to work it into her ‘big girl’ room when she’s ready. I’ve already used some of the wallpaper to line the drawers of Eleanor’s dresser that I painted pink, but there is still plenty left.

I know the style is much more vintage and less graphic than the Marimekko Unikko flowers, but here’s another wallpapered wall that’s more similar in style. This has been one of my favorite rooms for a long time, even in spite of the color palette (which is lovely, but I’m not a big fan of blue).

Can’t you just picture it? I’m not ready to start on another room project quite yet, but it’s so much fun to think about. I adore working on nurseries and kids’ rooms. I need to get Smart & Lovely (my design service) up and running so that I can do more of them!

    […] We were in temp (cramped) housing so we needed small furniture. My 1.5 and 3.5 had to share a room so I needed a crib and a twin to fit in a tiny bedroom. So Ikea’s Minnen bed to the rescue. It was perfect. Until they slept terribly together and no one got any sleep if they were in same room and my 3.5 year old had to bed hop into our room and it went empty for 6 months of our build. But I bought it also because down the road I wanted two of the Minnen bed together in one room. I’m going to share my original Pinterest inspo but don’t judge how much cuter it looks here. […]
