For anyone who wondered about hanging pom poms impermanently, Nadia has a solution in this charming room for Bella. She shares: I wanted this room to be cute and whimsical, without being too girly. Eventually, this will be a shared room so we wanted to paint the walls a gender-neutral color that would work well with different accent colors brought in through fabrics and prints.

This room has definitely been an ever-evolving project, from moving the white Jenny-Lind crib out and bringing in a "big-girl" bed, to painting a wall of magnetic paint for a now toddler, but the basics have stayed constant, which we love.

The dresser was a thrift store find, painted white. The teepee was actually made and painted by Bella's godfather. The art on the walls are switched out pretty often but include a notecard I received for my baby shower along with some Suzie Ultman prints.

My favorite diy is the pom-pom "waterfall." I was obviously inspired by many Ohdeedoh rooms here, but with vaulted 12' ceilings, I had to get creative with the placement; command hooks and fishing line worked like a charm! Ultimately, we just go with things we love and try not to spend too much so that when I do get the itch to switch things around, it's not a big deal to do.

Great advice, thanks Nadia!
