Pippi's Big Girl Room Tour





 I've been waiting for weeks to pull this room together. The intention was to create a fun and flamboyant sleep and play space for our outrageous Pippi. With the help of Hide and Sleep, I think we've done it.

I'd been dreaming of polka dotted walls for a while, so naturally, they were first thing to go up- after we'd repainted over the stripes from the lady baby's last room of course.

Filled with fruity colour, toys and soft textiles, it's a space the kids have already delighted in playing. Whether it be hiding under the bed, making each other cups of tea, whipping up a cake or tucking teddies in for the night - they can often be heard giggling behind the closed door.

The recycled plastic mat provides the perfect 'shake clean' soft fall while the wooden mixer and vegetables are the perfect accessories for the $5 kitchen I picked up at a garage sale. Dave put the little wooden shelves up a 'child' height to encourage imaginative play.



Now that it's all done and dusted, I think Pippi can sleep in Zeph's room and i'll take over the Yellow bed, good idea, no?

Tomorrow, I'll be sharing a super exciting giveaway that includes many of the treasures you can see here. In the mean time, you can see product details below.

  6. It's so gorgeous Em!! I love it. We just moved into our first place and i'm doing my daughters room. So many great ideas here, love the bed throw and rug. We have that bed in white, it's a lovely piece.
    Are the polkadots painted or stuck on?

  10. Wow! It looks so gorgeous. Bright and cheery. I have the paper ball thingys in my boys room. They make such a fun decoration. My favourite thing would have to be the bed frame. The yellow is fab!

    lucky gal...
    I dream of little girls rooms... our 3 boys are in together..6, 4 and nearly 2....
    Their fanatical requests for all things sharp, bitey and dangerous is tiring!
    Softness is lovely.

  14. That kantha, divine. Lucky Pippi, she must have sweet dreams.

  15. Oh this is just wonderful Em. The colour and the light and the POLKA DOTS - the perfectly unperfect room for your little lady baby. It must have felt so great to stand back and admire your handiwork (and hard work) and then watch your beautiful kids enjoy the space the way you had intended.

  22. I can't wait to show my eight year old daughter these images. We're in the midst of buying a house which means all sorts of new rooms. She is already so excited to help plan her new space. The party decorations as everyday decor are awesome.

  27. Wow, love it all, it is like a fruit salad colour party in there and it all works, especially the polkadots. You are incredibly talented and especially to pull this off in the home stretch of a third pregnancy. Sets the bar high for a nursery makeover you know. mel x

  30. You know when you see children's clothes and you think "I wish they did that for grown ups too." That's how I feel about your daughter's room.

    It is beautiful. I am going to polka dot a room in my house before the month is out.

    Lovely as always.

  40. Love this room! Room tours are one of my favorite things on the planet, so you had me with the title... but I adore the yellow bed and all of the fun color. Wonderful.

  41. Wow, it's gorgeous! (I knew it would be.) I am so looking forward to knowing if this Babe is a pink or blue version - if it's pink I get to decorate a girls room!!! I've been squirreling treasures away for ages already in the hopes that Rosie and a maybe-sister would get a cute room - here's hoping! I LOVE that plastic mat, must go and check it out. Also, I would like to live in your beautiful, beautiful house. (Even when there's crumbs on the floor and permanent marker on the furniture, because then it would be just like home.)

  44. I love the yellow bed! Now I'm inspired to paint my baby's cradle yellow :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So darling! How big are the polka dots? The website link shows 4 inch dots but your look a bit smaller? How far apart did you space them? Trying to figure out how many I'd need for my room :). Really, such a fun, fun space!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Beautiful. Beautiful. BEAUTIFUL! I have been looking at those Kith&Co rugs / mats for a while now - I haven't been sure whether they might look too plasticy, but it looks wonderful! I need one for our rumpus room, which is essentially the twinadoes' room of destruction. We sometimes get to watch TV in there, but usually I can't even face it. I think I'm sold! xx
