We’ve come to the end of this edition of Making it Yours! MiY is all about finding pieces you love, and working with them through one’s life. It’s about sustainability, but also about not following whims and trends, and staying true to the things you love.
This time around, we’ve been following the window daybed. It was first seen in a little boy’s bedroom, and it served as his bed through his teen years. It transitioned with him to adulthood as a couch in his first apartment, and again later as he matured. Now he has a little girl, and the daybed is a sweet, sentimental place for her to sleep.
He also brought his old doll house and vintage kid’s chair out for her. Other than those, and the Curious George bedding, this is a pretty sophisticated room for a little girl that will grow with her for a long time! A simple dresser, floor lamp, and neutral paint are livened up by the fun rug. The big knitted pouf is good for extra seating that can be moved around the room, and kids love them. The frame decals are a cute, graphic way to add wall art, and the mobile would have come from the little girl’s nursery over to her big girl room.
And so ends this edition of MiY, having come full circle from a little boy’s room to a little girl’s! You can see all of the previous Making it Yours editions right here.
