My Room: Sophia

Illinois

Alana kindly sent us in some photos of her daughter Sophia's room. She tell us: 1 week after Sophia turned 8, she became a big sister. We couldn't have our star helper feeling left out with all the attention paid to preparing our nest for a new baby. Little by little we've been pulling her room out of the little girl princess phase to a pre-tween hang out space with plenty of cozy nooks to curl up, read, entertain friends, or watch a movie.

We needed lots of storage cubbies for all of Sophia's Barbie dolls, musical instruments, and art supplies. Our favorite new feature is the giant tent over the bed that can be pulled closed for imagination time or just a little extra privacy from the prying eyes of a little brother.

Thanks, Alana & Sophia!
