It's such a beautiful space: big and bright, and with the newly painted walls, freshly polished floors and new furniture it just feels so fresh. Full of promise - just like its little occupant.
It's been so much fun decorating this room. Abbey's previous bedroom (which is now being converted into an office) was done when I was pregnant, so it was all very unisex. Buying all these gorgeous things and turning this into a room for a little girl has been fun.
Let me show you around...
|From the doorway. Yes, the room has|
its own little entranceway!
|This beautiful embroidery, made for Abbey|
by Cat of Wouldn't it be Loverly
resides in the entrance.
|As does this gorgeous photo of Abbey and Taylor taken during |
our shoot with Lou Lou Portraits last year.
|Another step in reveals...|
|... this gorgeous height chart from|
|Then there is the full-length mirror (from IKEA)|
and the wardrobe...
|... which consists of two lots of shelving (no need for a|
chest of drawers) and hanging space.
|Inside the bedroom (Abbey says "Oh wow! A pretty rug!").|
|And this big window looking out over|
the front garden...
|... adorned by whimsical birds from Paperklip Design...|
|... and Roman Blinds.|
|Looking back towards the entrance.|
|Tepee made by Steve and I, using a|
pattern from Childhood 101.
|My baby's going into a big bed!|
|The toy shelves are from IKEA.|

set of wall stickers and revealed... soon!
