Ever's Room, Before + After

posted on: Sunday, February 1, 2015

Today I wanted to share photos of baby girl's finished bedroom if you'd care to take a peek. I feel like it's been so long since we've done any real improvements on the house considering that for about the last year or so I've been either sick and tired, heavily pregnant or taking care of a newborn. So getting her room finally finished has been a really big goal of mine. You may remember the "before" post I did awhile back and I ended up sticking pretty closely to the furniture plan and mood board I put together at the time. I ended up changing out the light I'd had in mind for something bigger and switched out the side table for something cuter, but otherwise I pretty much stuck to the plan. Here are a few photos to jog your memory in case you don't remember what it looked like before.

And here it is now!

If you remember when we started overhauling this space we had no idea if our little one was going to be a boy or a girl. So, outside of the basic gender neutral furniture pieces I'd selected, this room was sitting pretty empty up until just a couple of months ago. Once she arrived and we knew our baby girl was, in fact, a girl, I started gathering accessories to start layering in. I don't feel like I went overly girly in here, but after two boys I have to admit it was fun to play around with a few accessories that were more on the feminine side of things for a change. Most importantly though it just feels like a bright, happy and energetic space when you walk through the door instead of the depressing, dark box it was before. Architecturally speaking Ever's room is definitely the most boring room in our house (sorry baby!) with just four square walls and a single window. So, it was a bit of a challenge to spice it up without any of the fun architectural details found elsewhere in our house that I normally have in my corner helping bolster the design. (Like Oren's amazing wall of windows or Wes's fun room shape and built-ins.) But baby girl does have her own attached full bath, so don't go feeling too sorry for her yet ;)

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the final product. I'm dreaming of someday switching out the tasseltry hanging over the crib for a huge, colorful wall weaving ala Maryanne Moodie, but I haven't found just the right thing quite yet (I also don't have those Maryanne Moodie dollas quite yet either if you know what I'm saying ;) but when I do, you'll be the first to know.

Source list: crib, bookshelf, rocker, side tables, pouf, pillow on rocker, throw on rocker, doll on rocker, table lamp, bunny bust on wall, hexagon shelves on wall, elephant basket, quilt on crib, ombre pillow in crib,  bear pillow in crib, bunny doll in crib, rectangular area rug, round rug, tasseltry above crib, mobile, baskets on top of bookshelf, triangle garland, sheep pillow, wolf print, giraffe print, print on wall, window shade, bamboo chandelier. The dresser and mirror were thrifted and came as a set. Instead of buying a new mirror I saved a few bucks by using the existing and just painting it gold. The sheep blanket was handmade for Ever by her great grandmother, but you can find the pattern here. The globe is vintage and everything else were just books and things I already had lying around or bought on sale at Target or West Elm. Paint color is Benjamin Moore, OC-17, white dove.

We also made over Ever's little attached bath as well. The tile and fixtures aren't my favorite but they're also not bad so we just gave the room a little cosmetic touching up for now. We painted out the walls, trim and ceiling and got some new hand towels and a new bath mat. We replaced the outlets and covers, robe hooks and toilet paper holder. We also finally got a pair of updated sconces in here which are super fun for a kid's bathroom. The before pictures are pretty terrible, but here's what I've got.


Source List: sconces are from Onefortythree (gloss white finish with teak veneer options), wall paint color is Teresa's Green by Farrow & Ball, trim and ceiling color is Benjamin Moore, OC-17, white dove.
