Deciding on a room design for my fierce little gal was one of the aspects of our new home that I was always the most excited about. It seemed like such a tall order to have a bedroom that would perfectly evoke all sides of her personality: creative and rebellious, sweet and sensitive, curious and spirited. Feminine but not “girly”. The first time we saw our new home, I felt drawn to include a lot of birds in the design concept, and there seemed no better room to go full-on with this concept than in the little girl’s room who we used to call “Lowie Bird” as a baby!
I’m SO happy with how this room turned out, and I know it will be one that she enjoys for many years to come. Whenever Prudence showed me the design board for this room, it was one of the ones I fell in love with immediately. I also love that it has so many furniture and decor pieces that Marlowe can keep with her in to adulthood, and include in her own home once day. Quality over quantity can be such a power move if you invest in the right pieces.
There are so many little details that give Marlowe’s room a personal touch! The Kerri Rosenthal Print is one of my faves…that saying “I Love Your Guts” is just perfect for my brave and beautiful girl. I also love the Framed Alphabet print by Sally King McBride. I hope she keeps it for her own kids one day! The Wallpapers by Kravet and Schumacher totally make the room, and the textures add such gorgeous dimension to the entire design.
Check out the video below that Prudence and I made where we discuss the design process, and some of our favorite elements!
