As soon as we found out we were having a little girl, I went Pinterest crazy. I spent hours gathering ideas on how I wanted to create her space. I wanted something we could both enjoy. Something mellow and calming, but beautiful and inviting. I knew I wanted to take a slightly minimal approach. Minimalism is all the rage these days. I love pictures and coffee cups too much to be a minimalist, but I wanted my daughters room to be simple and clean. Also, I was determined to save a buck or two.

I adore spending time in this room. It fits Raleigh’s personality so well. Plus, it’s oh so functional. Not everything has to be Pinterest perfect in order to be beautiful, and to feel like home. I can’t thank my own mom enough for all the help, and to all my friends and family for their generous gifts.
