Jessica wanted Mila's room to blend in with the rest of their home and after seeing it we think it's a safe assumption that their whole home is lovely. Jessica shares: When first thinking about decorating our first little girl's room, the one thing I knew I would NOT adhere to was a 'theme'. Mila's room is still a part of the house and I didn't want it to look like pink and purple paint threw up all over her walls.

I decided on two shades of a particular color that I loved and just went from there. The first item purchased for the room was our Alfabeto, since part of my husband's family is from Honduras, I knew I wanted to include the Spanish language somewhere in the room, and the artwork above the rocker is courtesy of my brother.

Then came a lot of white (via the flowers and lamp) to make the room clean and crisp and a bit more feminine minus red's subdued hue. I mixed that in with a dark wood since we already owned the dresser and some vintage locker baskets that my mom conveniently brought home from her school.
