Tessa Jean (2.5)
Since our family is expecting a new baby girl, we needed to give our two-and-a-half-year old daughter, Tessa Jean, a new "big girl" room.
The room was already painted Behr's Pismo Dunes, a buttery yellow, and we had these Pottery Barn Kids blackout curtains hanging in her nursery--thus creating an instant pink and yellow palette to which I added blue. The color scheme suits her personality, which is energetic, bright and sassy.
We ordered new bedding from Land of Nod; it's their Petite Chateau duvet, and used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to spruce up an old desk and her toy box. West Elm shelves formed her reading nook, and an IKEA canopy hangs over her iron bed, which was mine (her mom's) when I was a kid.
During the great reveal of her new room, Tessa was so excited that she ran in, tripped and fell and then got right back up to examine every nook and cranny. We all love it.
We love it, too - thanks Ellen! Readers, see more of Tessa's room at Black and White and Loved All Over as well as check out her nursery.
