Ohdeedoh Small Kids, Big Color: Audrey's Big Girl Room

 

Have you been tracking the Ohdeedoh "Small Kids, Big Color" contest?  There are so many fun and inspiring room designs--so perfect if you're planning a redo. I thought I would submit Audrey's room and it made a feature this morning: entry #58! They are inviting readers to vote and will move forward a subset of the entries to the finals. Would be fun to be among them but it's pretty amazing competition. It's just fun to be included.


I loved Audrey's room when we did it as her nursery, and even more as her "Big Girl Room," when we upgraded her to a bed, and it's been fun adding some things here and there over the years. Just found my old wooden shoes, for instance, and they're the perfect thing in here! I can't believe we're now reading to her out of some of the children's books we placed on her shelves as decoration, seems like just yesterday.


This is my favorite of the photos I submitted: bunny wearing Audrey's birthday crown.



I have been sad about the prospect of the fabrics I used in Audrey's room fading, and the walls getting nicked, and the need to at least repaint if not potentially totally redo in a couple years (just hoping and hoping it won't be forced because she wants to decorate her own room in some garish fashion!) but then looking through Ohdeedoh I think it would be so fun to try it again in a totally different scheme--repaint the furniture, etc.  So many equally great possibilities.

Um, can Audrey and I swap rooms? This is amazing. I love the wooden shoes. I love the table set for tea. I love how the yellows and reds pop against the blue. Wonderful!

I've been blog-stalking a bit, and I stumbled upon yours a few weeks ago. I absolutely love your little girl's room. It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Great job Anneliese! I love the yellow rug and the big red cabinet. I'm thinking with a mom of such great style that Audrey will follow in your footsteps. Crossing my fingers for no Disney princess posters on the walls in your future ;)

I love the rug coming out of lurking to say I must have that rug.Where did you get it? The room is beautiful great job.

Cassi said...

Wow. I found your room on Ohdeedoh, and it is my favorite so far for a little girl. I want that red headboard + polkadot-and-floral bedding combo in my room! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

Andrea, isn't that rug the greatest? I love it. Probably a bit of bad news though, which is that I bought it at Anthropologie, but about three years ago. Maybe they have something similar now though?

How amazing is Audrey's room. I love little girls rooms that aren't smothered in pink sadly its my daughter's favourite colour. 0

I love it when a girl's room is not pink! So cute. (But I do love pink, too!)

So, what do you think about adopting a 30-something mother of 4? Then you could decorate my room and I promise to keep it clean!! Thanks for the wonderful posts that keep me crafting!!
