“Big Girl” Room Inspiration.

**Unrelated but Bellabliss is running its end-of-season summer sale — 65% off with code SHOPNOW. My top tip for saving money on good quality children’s clothing is buying at closeout price for the year ahead. I love these scalloped shorts for girls ($13 with code!), this bubble and these shortalls for a baby boy (micro owned both of these — adorable!), and this precious bloomer set for a baby girl.

Mini slept for a long time with a pink floral baby quilt we’d bought at Land of Nod (RIP) and then all of the sudden I noticed that her toes stuck out an inch or two beneath the bottom hem. I started layering her with blankets at bedtime, aware that the solution felt a little ragged, but wanting to make sure those little tootsies were covered. Then, recently, after one of only two nighttime accidents she’s had in her whole life, I dragged out a spare queen-sized duvet (no cover on it) in the middle of the night and she loved it and has refused to sleep with anything else since. So we have an enormous queen-sized duvet devouring her tiny toddler bed (converted from her crib), and I have been in the market for a better solution. I think for now I will buy her a twin sized duvet even though it’s technically too big for the bed and just roll it up at the foot of the bed in the morning so it’s at least a little more appropriately-sized (and can be repurposed in the future), and here are a few of my top contenders:

SCHWEITZER LINEN’S LOVABLE 21 PATTERN

PEHR’S SWAN LAKE

PBK SIMPLE PINK BORDER STRIPE, BUT MAYBE SWAP OUT THE SHAM FOR THIS ONE, THIS ONE, OR THIS ONE

BISCUIT TRUVY OR JENNY PRINTS

Will add a monogram boudoir pillow like this or this to match.

Though we won’t be ready for a transition to a big girl bed or room for awhile, the entire thought exercise led me wandering down “big girl room” inspiration lane, so I thought I’d share a few other finds fit for a princess:

  1. Love these ideas! My big boys share a room with Jenny lind style (from pbk) beds and the pbk duvet in navy!! Don’t monogram
    With pbk if you go that route. The Pehr is delightful—I have been obsessed with Pehr for my youngest!

    1. Hi! Good reminder on PBK monogramming — I’ve had the worst luck getting things monogrammed by them. I’ve had to return multiple things! Yikes!

  2. So much fun to think about this! I adore that Swan Lake duvet cover — so cute! It’s so funny; my stepdaughter has been recently using my down duvet from college (!!) — I must say that it has held up super well and she loves the color, which works well with her room scheme! It’s kind of sweet, even though I’m sure she’ll want to get a different cover for it in a couple of years. 🙂

    1. That is so precious!! And so funny, the parity between that interaction and ours with mini. Love the swan cover too 🙂

    1. Yes!! I saw that and was relieved as we’d not bought one part of the conversion kit for mini’s bed…! But still it feels like a different brand to me. Love so many pieces, though! xx

  3. Such a sweet image of mini underneath a queen size comforter!
    Reminds me of the time my mini crawled up in bed with me and LOVED our comforter. Of course, he immediately asked if he could have one for his bed. As we were attempting to get him through the nightly accident phase, I told him as soon as he goes one week without an accident I would get him one! Guess what? One week later he had his comforter and no more bed wetting!
    Love these memories!
