Sammie's New Room

Next month Sammie will turn the big 5 (gulp) and in honnor of her becoming a big girl, we are going to redo her room. I'm very excited. Nothing has really been done to it since we moved in and she was a baby. Once we got rid of the crib and other baby furniture, we just kind of stuck stuff in there. The stuff hanging on the walls made more sense with the old furniture placement, but now, everything just looks a little "off".
Here are some pics of Sammies room now. I must say it looks better in person, but you get the gist.

I love the show Decorating Cents and my favorite designer is Krista Crawford. She does the best little girl rooms. I love how her rooms are sweet but not too froo froo. I'm going to use this room she did as the inspiration for Sammie's room.

I think the bottom 2/3's will be a soft blue (like the color of faded jeans) and then the top checks will be a light pink and cream. The little dresser in the corner we are going to paint white and her bed and side table will also get a fresh coat of paint. I will probably move the furniture around, but it is tough, since her room is so small and I want her to have some open floor space. I have a little bookshelf I would like to bring in, but that might be too much.
This is going to be so much fun. I'm sure the next time the room is redone it will be for the dreaded "tween" years. Not looking forward to that so I'm just going to enjoy the "girly" years while they last.

I like what you are doing to Sammie's room. I'll look forward to seeing the finished room.

I, too, am a Decorating Cents fan and totally, totally love anything that Krista Crawford does. Everything is so homey and cute ... sometimes I think the other designers get a little too cheapie looking, but she never ever does. I remember that room and loved it! I think it's a great room to be inspired by! Good luck and I can't wait to see the end result.

To answer your question, I will only say that Don Draper is not who he appears to be... I don't want to spoil it for you!
