This post is long, long, long overdue. Much like this baby of mine who apparently has no desire to make her grand entrance into this world. Okay, she’s really not overdue at all—I’m actually still two weeks away from my due date. But, two weeks is enough for me to start busting out some old wives tales in order to get this baby party started. Anyway, I realized I’ve shared a few different elements of Julia’s room, but I never actually showed you what her room looks like, like as a whole.
Part of that is because I’m lazy and didn’t want to clean it up for pictures, and the other part is that my camera’s been finicky lately, well for the past couple years since I accidentally dropped it. I really need to send it in for a fix-up, but procrastinating always gets the best of me, and my iPhone is just so darn handy.
But here I am, sharing them now; I wanted to share them sooner rather than later, because Julia’s room is likely to change once her baby sister moves in. Yup, we’re going to have the girls share a room (once the baby’s sleeping through the night, of course)! Any advice for me?
So here’s Julia’s room. It’s similar to her first room in Italy, but just developed a little more. I went with a travel-themed, soft and feminine look that was heavy on a pink, grey, and white color scheme. It’s easily one of my favorite rooms in the house!
I’ve always loved her room. Yes, there’s a lot of grey, pink, and white, but that’s what makes it so feminine. The travel touches make me happy, and I love the personal touches we added to the room.
Below you’ll find where we bought things along with links, if applicable. If I’m missing anything or you have a question about something, just ask (but make sure to leave your email in the comments—I’ve been getting a lot of messages without a way to get back in touch with the person!)
