We are in the planning process of moving Lucy out of the Nursery and into her very own “Big Girl Room”.
I have a few ideas about what I want to do but my main concern is that the room will be able to grow with her without having to make a lot of drastic changes.
Here is the room that she will be moving into:
It is pretty much a blank canvas. We have gotten new carpet since this picture was taken but everything else is the same.
What are those weird hanger looking things for?
All we know right now is that we will be painting all of the trim and doors white. I want to install lights in both of the closets because there aren’t any and you can’t see in them at night.
The light in the ceiling is recessed which makes the lighting in the room pretty dim. We will have table lamps but maybe only one or two so I would like to put either a little chandelier or some king of larger light fixture.
Her bed will be on the right side of the window against the wall (unless the bed doesn’t fit or it looks better somewhere else… but that is where I imagine it to go).
Paint color. For the longest time I was really set on painting the room a shade of yellow. Yellow is bright and cheery- girly but not too girly and somewhat neutral.
I really really LOVE the color I painted the nursery.
This is not really a great picture but you get the idea. Can you believe I do not have a picture of the nursery? Maybe I do but it took me 1 hour to find this one so I don’t feel like continuing the search.
It is a turquoise color- a little brighter than pictured . I am obsessed with it. I was trying to convince Ryan to take that room when Lucy moves out but none of our stuff will match.
I know that I COULD paint Lucy’s new room the same color but do I really want to do that? I just do not know what to do.
How Can you Help?
What do you think I should do? Do you have any completely different suggestions? Ideas?
I’m really open to any change of plans but I feel stuck between my two original plans because that is just where my mind has been.
Here are a few ideas I have been brainstorming in terms of style:

*I actually had one of these made for her from a local artist in a light purple fabric with small pink and yellow designs.
Ok, Well, thanks for your help. I really do appreciate it!
