I had vague ideas of photographing this room before Perrin was born, but, lo and behold, she’s 6 months old and I finally took the photos. I’m not mad though because as you will see, because I waited, she is in some of the pictures, which are obviously my favorite.

So for starters, I should say I didn’t do a lot to this room. I had been selective back when I was pregnant with Henry in making this room gender neutral so that it could be used for either boy or girl. I did swap out a few things to up the girly factor, but really, the room was basically ready to go when we moved Henry into his new room last fall. This is what it looked like when it was Henry’s room and, scroll on, to see what it looks like now.Little_Girl_Bedroom_EmilyCrall_Photo_0003.jpg

The canvas above the bed was one I made digitally and had it printed. I still love it so much! And that geometric mobile is such a fun art piece hanging over the crib.

I adore (adore) these Sarah Janes prints. Henry had these all memorized when this was his room so when he was done with diaper changes, he would stand up and go counter-clockwise saying, “Be fwendly, be happy, be smawt, be cewius, be patient, be nice!”

We chose this verse for Perrin for her baby dedication.

My mom made this quilt for Perrin and the colors are absolutely perfect. Not just for her room, but for her personality. I love it so much.

Shortly after finding out I was pregnant back in April, I immersed myself into the nursery design. We didn’t tell our families for a few weeks so, when I wasn’t vomiting, I distracted myself with design boards. My goal was to create a room that wouldn’t be too baby-themed and would remain fairly gender-neutral. If there were elements to invest in, I wanted them to be able to be used elsewhere in the house later on and be able to be used for either a boy or a girl (since we didn’t know yet what we were having).
