Alright friends. Today I’m sharing Addison’s pink and aqua blue bedroom. FINALLY. I seriously can’t believe I’ve been in my house 3 years now and haven’t taken pictures of my girls’ rooms sooner! Part of the reason I waited so long is because is they aren’t finished! I kept thinking I would finish them completely and then put pictures up on the blog. But I’ve had a recent epiphany and have realized two things. One: If I wait until they are finished I might never post them. Ha. :) And Two: According to my recent survey most of you want progress pics! So progress is what you’ll get. :) Here is Ad’s blue and pink bedroom mostly decorated and a lot cleaner than it usually is. ;)

In the Fall I shared my girls’ desks that we had custom made to fit this small space between their bathroom doors and windows. I also shared how I brought their old bulletin boards back to life with new fabric. You can read details about that here. This is what Ad’s desk area looks like now. :)
Her bulletin board holds recent pics and a few other special things. The calendar is old but Ad still likes to rotate the pictures. Time for mom to get on that and make a new one! (camera print source)
Her desk holds a few notebooks, a special picture of her and El with their dad..
and pins to add more to her board on a whim. :)
I really wanted fun fixtures in my kids’ rooms but my girls LOVE their fans and use them often so I searched high and low until I found these fans that I loved. I can’t remember where I got them, but I will try to hunt down that info. and add it to this post. Details on her bed! The headboard was custom made. For the bedding I bought this down comforter from Target and the blue duvet cover from Serena and Lily. They don’t make this color of blue anymore! El has the same duvet cover in pink.
The “You are my Sunshine” quote has been a bit overused, but this sign is special to us. When Ad was in preschool her teachers would do a little singing time on the rug with parents before the day started. El was in Elementary school at the time and I was pregnant with Kole so that was a fun Ad and mom bonding time. We would sing this song along with a few others every morning and I always whispered to her that she was my sunshine. Most mornings she could barely fit on my lap because my stomach was so huge! Then she’d have to pull me up after singing time and we would laugh. It was our special little morning routine and when I saw this sign later that year I bought it for her to remind her that she’ll always be my sunshine. She loves having it over her bed.
She also really wanted a pink chevron rug! I can’t remember where I purchased this but you can find one almost identical here. And yes! I love rugs in bedrooms even on carpet! It’s a great way to add some personality to the room. This picture is driving me crazy though because that rug needs to be slid a little further back up under the bed. My OCD took over and as soon as I saw this pic I marched up into her room and fixed it. :)
The two pillows in front of the shams were custom (I let Ad help pick the fabric and we had her initials monogrammed on one of them.) The cute flower pillow in the front was from Target a few years ago.
The clock was also a Home Goods find!
In that wall space to the right of her bed I’m hanging a large frame.. (it’s sitting in the playroom at the moment!). The door in this picture is her closet door.
We organized her closet before school started this year and I’m happy to report she has kept it clean since then!
I looked high and low for a bookshelf I loved for my girls’ rooms and finally decided on this Elsie bookcase from PB teen.
I actually found a higher end version that I loved, but it cost a lot more than I wanted to spend so when I came across this one that was similar with the cut out geometric shapes on the sides I was thrilled! I really love this bookcase.
I haven’t spent much time styling these shelves.. Addison really likes to just keep a lot of her books here. I’d still like to find something cute to go on the top of the shelf.
I love these colorful canvas bins and bought two for the bottom of this shelf. I just labeled them “Addison’s Stuff” so that they can be catch alls for whatever she wants to put in them. Kids have a lot of catch alls, don’t they?
I’m picturing a fun, colorful gallery wall on this blank wall between the doors. Can you see it? Pictures of Ad and family and friends and other things that make her happy.
It would make me happy if this magical wall would hang itself since it has been on my to-do list for 3 years now. ;)
And back to her desk! The door next to her desk leads to my girls’ shared bathroom.
If you are new to my blog (welcome!) you can see their full bathroom here and how I recently organized the drawers here.
My girls’ rooms get so much light from their french doors and windows! They are bright, happy places to hang. :) I debated using drapes in these rooms, but decided to go with plantation shutters when we built the house and they have been perfect to keep out the hot sun or to let it shine through.
This is a picture I found of the door shutters soon after we moved in before they had put shutters on the windows. Ad and Kole look so little!
Most of our toys stay in our playroom, but you can usually find a doll or stuffed animal or two hanging out in this corner in a homemade bed of some sort. :)
So that’s where we’re currently at with Ad’s pink and aqua blue bedroom! When we were building the house she begged for blue walls and a pink bed and a chevron rug. So that’s what she got. :) I’m sure we’ll be tweaking and adding to and updating this room for years, but she’s pretty happy with how it has turned out.
And I’m pretty happy with how she’s turned out.
