Ever’s toddler room was her big gift this past Christmas. I started putting her room together by first converting her crib into a toddler bed. The bed became not only a place for her to sleep in, but also served as a space for her to lounge, read and play. Most of the larger pieces of furniture in her room were purchased from either Ikea or Target, which we ended up doing some DIY on. We then chose a rug that continues to serve as a statement piece and anchor for her entire room.
What I like most about her room is that it is filled with colorful toys, objects and decor from small businesses and shops we’ve come across on Instagram. We’ve become friends with many of these shop owners and talented artisans, and they continue to be such a great source of inspiration for me in decorating Ever’s constantly evolving space.
My biggest piece of advice for those putting a kids’ room together is to work with what you have and to curate and edit as you decorate. Play with colors and patterns and have fun!
