I am one of those annoying people who didn’t find out the gender of my children ahead of time. When I became pregnant with my second, I didn’t have much work to do because the nursery was already neutral. I did however need to start planning for a big girl room for my oldest daughter who would soon be evicted from the nursery.

I initially found the floral throw pillows at one of my favorite local shops. I was instantly obsessed and the color story was set (I have a tendency to design an entire room around a pillow). I love the coral, turquoise and taupe color combo and knew this could be a room she would not outgrow quickly, as long as I kept it sophisticated, yet fun.

I also have a love of flamingos and all things vintage. The bed belonged to my grandmother as a child and was mine growing up, which has extra special meaning to me. With a few repairs and some fresh paint it was the perfect centerpiece. I was also able use a few other family treasures like the dollhouse my father built when I was a kid and the framed fashion drawings done by my grandmother in the 1920s.
